    Hi guys,

    I was curious to see who plays airsoft and what guns do you have?

    For those who may not be familiar with airsoft, they are simply .6mm or .8mm military style guns that fire plastic bb's or sometimes special made pellets. Its a very interesting and fun sport especially if you turn it into a mock battle with actual uniforms and combat vest.

    Here is a website if you would like to check some airsoft guns out.

    Here's a website explaining Airsoft

    And here is a WWII Replica and Airsfot website that sell WWII styled Airsoft guns

    yeah it's a lot of fun but guns can be expensive and it's hard to find an excuse to use them :lol:

    Tried it once with some ex-mob mates as a team; we got copiously whipped because our tactics were utterly incorrect, being adapted to the use of weapons which can be used out to some 400 yards or so, rather than about 20! If you go into it thinking it has some parallels with combat, forget it! The only place it might be useful is for FIBUA trg, where the distances can be relatively short. Personally, I didn't go back.

    Yeah, paintball is a lot of fun. Only problem I have with it is that it costs a lot to replace CO2, paintballs, and accessories like gloves, modifications for you gun. I've played at least a half a dozen times, every time I've played I got shot. Heck, I've been shot in both ass cheeks.

    Not what I'm into myself, but fair enough if that's what people want to do.
