About Airsoft GB
How it all began
Airsoft GB was started in June 2011 with the simple question asked to David (the Governor) Beech :
“If you could do anything, any job, what would be it be?”
His reply was to make his Airsoft hobby into a business; to take his joy for designing game scenarios and learning the Airsoft guns into hosting Airsoft events.
From small beginnings...
Once the ball was rolling there was no stopping the company. From starting off playing just along his drive and essentially in the back garden, David and Penny found two more Airsoft sites to play on.
The Airsoft gun collection was always large but in recent months has grown with the expansion of the business. It started off as one Christmas present to David in 2010. Other members of the family started to follow suit and buy Airsoft guns, simple single shot spingers and revolvers.
The site was small so the low power of the Airsoft springer guns was welcome. It wasn’t long until heavier weapons started to call to David. The Airsoft games were changed with the purchase of the M60 heavy machine gun.
Passion from an early age & the evolution of Airsoft games
David Beech has always had a passion for guns and playing tactical weapon games. From a young age he had a collection of toy guns – if he couldn’t find a gun to play with then it would have been a stick acting as a gun.
Airsoft GB started with basic game scenarios and games were refined while playing! When Airsoft started to gain more interest, David started to really plan and detail the game scenarios. One wonderful night in particular proved to be hilarious with the team spending 4 hours of Airsoft game writing and planning, with game plot lines to rival a Tom Clancy novel. The team quickly learnt that such detail was not strictly necessary and further refined their nights of Airsoft game writing and planning.
