New airsoft shop in Swansea
« on: May 12, 2010, 12:36:35 am »
There's a new airsoft and army surplus shop in swansea, down the road from the train station, opposite argos. Anyone had any dealings with them or know anything about them? I noticed it as I was on my way back from an interview, but it was closed as it was about 6 o clock. I'm going to have a peek sometime next week.

I popped in for a quick look, was mainly looking to see what kind of bbs/gas and general consumables they had. Looked alright, didn't buy anything tho, just had a quick gander. I think it has some connections with Pathfinder Airsoft up in Neath, but I'm not sure about that. Might be going into town end of this week or next so I will definitely be having another look. Its definitely a good thing anyway, I don't think Swansea has had a surplus shop (yet alone a dedicated airsoft store) since that one outside the market closed years ago (on the site of the current 'blue banana' store)?

Hmmm, I've seen this store lots of times never went in, looked like to me it has cheap stuff in it. Might just pop in to see what they sell.

How fussy are they about who they sell them to?

Does anyone know of a airsoft/surplus store around the Newport/Cardiff area?

There used to be one in Newport centre, in one of the arcades opposite the indoor market.  To the best of my knowledge that's gone now though.
