Plastic pellets are in the air again – the softair hall has reopened
The hall is Lantmännen's former industrial premises in Vinslöv. The building has been renovated and thoroughly cleaned out. Two levels of narrow passages, nailed-up plywood and worn-out sofas make you think of the apocalypse.
It is a hall specially for airsoft, which is played with soft air guns. The ammunition is tiny pellets and the game resembles paintball.
”Getting hit is quite painful. It's like paintball, but without the paint”Piroz Maroufi
– Getting hit is quite painful. It's like paintball, but without the paint, says Piroz Maroufi. He and Cecilia Malmgren discovered that the building next door is an airsoft court, but it was closed.
Now they have helped to restart activities.
– They have come with a new drive and new energy, says Daniel Nackmar.
It is a team sport. As in paintball, the aim is to hit opponents.
Protective glasses are compulsory.
A licence is required for airguns, airsoft guns and paintball guns. Young people under 18 may only use an airgun if an adult is present.
