BB bad to the bone

Looking for an extreme activity in Phuket, we caught up with the “Phuket Airsoft Gun Club”, which includes some 200 members who get together regularly to shoot both paint ball and bb-guns.

Prapan Meeprankij, leader of group, remarked, “I've been a bb-gun hobbyist in Phuket for many years. We united around this activity, which we really love. We're a good community for meeting up, networking and finding new friends from different organisations including hotels, government offices, schools and other companies.

Aside from meeting up for a shoot around, the group also help each other aquire the necessary equipment – bb-guns, clothes, protective gear and combat boots.

“We help each other locate new and used equipment. Some purchase them in Phuket, others source them from Bangkok.”

Their Facebook page (see below) is their prime way to communicate.

Their main activities are held in the jungle field at the back of Rajaphat Phuket University, on Sundays; some buildings in the Thalang area on Mondays; and in the area near the Kwangtoong graveyard on Tuesdays. For paintball, they also regularly meet at PAC Phuket Paintball near Boat Plaza Phuket.

Pratchayakorn Saiuphetsanti, leader of BB Gun team remarked, “We play by a set of rules, and follow them closely because safety and security are priority for us.

He adds, “Plus, I do not want anyone to get hurt, so I have to screen the people who want to join the club.”
