Airsoft Information

Airsoft is an activity used primarily for recreation where replica firearms shooting 6mm or 8mm plastic rounds are used for personal collection, gaming , or professional training purposes . A primary difference between airsoft firearms and BB guns is that the former uses plastic pellets and have muzzle velocities of less than 700 feet per second , which is generally considered safe when used in a controlled environment, while the latter utilizes metal ammunition and shoots at higher velocities , making them unsuitable for gaming and training purposes. Another distinguishing factor between BB guns and airsoft guns is that the latter generally uses hop-up to increase their effective range, since the lower velocity of these guns shortens their shooting distance.

Airsoft games vary greatly in style and composition depending on location, budget, and the quantity of participants but often range from short-term skirmishes and organized scenarios to military simulations and historical reenactments. Combat situations on the battlefield often involve the use of common military tactics to achieve the objectives set in each game. Participants typically use varying types of airsoft weaponry along with either real or replica military gear and uniforms.
