Hey everyone!

Welcome back to the blog! Today I have something a little different for you, and it's a post we've not done in a while - a shop walk around. Last week I visited Extreme Airsoft in Croft, near Leicester to catch up with the team and see how the shop/site has developed since I last visited in 2017!

From my home in Derbyshire, it takes me around 35-40 minutes to get to Extreme Airsoft. The first time I visited the postcode on the website did take me to a nearby Quarry but if you carry on going past the Quarry and take the next right you will go down a street with houses and eventually the entrance to Winston Avenue, Extreme is at the end. There is a small carpark onsite but if that is full there is a bigger car park 100m away (this car park now closes at 9pm so be sure not to be in there after!). There are signs for both Extreme and the Department on the building so it is well signposted.

Upon arrival, there is a small reception (atm only one person can be in here at a time due to social distancing) where you will be asked to sanitise/wash your hands and wear a mask (it's required in England to wear face coverings in stores) and then you'll be allowed into the store. Currently only 2 customers and one member of staff are allowed in the shop area.

Once you're through the reception door, straight on leads you into the safe zone/game zone of the Department CQB (the onsite CQB arena) and if you go left you'll see the entrance to the shop. As you walk in there is a table with hand sanitiser. 

On the left hand wall and the back wall are full of pistols from brands such as Tokyo Marui, Armourer Works, WE Airsoft, Raven, VFC and many more. Due to the current situation it is really important you ask Staff before handling any of the display guns and sanitise/wear gloves to keep other customers and the staff safe.

Extreme also stocks the full colour range of the Tectonic Innovation Blank Firing Grenades (you can watch my first impressions video here and my written review here) and also stocks a range of the Airsoft Innovations products including the Cyclone grenade.

The store also stocks all the consumables you'd need on a game day including gas, BBs and pyro.

And they stock a range of eye protection and face protection from brands such as Nuprol and Dye.

Past the gun bags on the wall you walk into what can only be described as an airsofters version to a 'pleasure room' (I actually laughed at my own joke so I hope you enjoyed it as much as me). On every surface there are airsoft guns! From snipers from Ares, AEGs from brands such as KWA, Krytac, Ares, BOLT, Valken, VFC, Tokyo Marui, G&G Armament, Nuprol, Specna Arms, LCT, E&L and many more. This room has pretty much everything you could ask for, and if it doesn't they can probably get it in for you. The variety of airsoft guns Extreme has is comprehensive.

The staff at Extreme Airsoft are also really helpful — nothing is too much trouble and the customer service is second to none from what I have seen whilst in the store.
