    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

    That must suck. I remember some study where they tried to give young boys girls toys as a psychology type experiment. The boys just pretended other objects were guns and swords :lol: somethings are just ingrained in human nature.

    Airsoft hurts, then again maybe I'm just a wuss but thats okay. :p All of my guy friends seem to think it's fun though.

    :| Yeah same here, Looma. No toy guns at my house... Or swords or anything that somehow has to do with war. Geez, my mom is such a paranoia freak.​

    Nope I have seen too many people lose there eyesight because idiots think they are toys and shoot them at each other.

    If you are going to buy a gun, buy a real one is what I say.

    Well, if you play airsoft, they tell you to where glasses or goggles to protect your eyes. I have a pair of BB proof glasses to where you can shoot them up close an they wont leave a scratch.

    The BB's you use in Airsoft are meant to be .6mm or .8mm, 4.5mm can be very painful.

    Well anyway, I own an M4A1 BOYI Aeg. I used to have one of those cheap spring pistols as a backup, but the damn thing broke.

    I have a real sword, except the blade has never been sharpened (so its like just a curved piece of metal) and it's twice as old as me, it's a ceremonial scimitar my dad gave me, from Saudi Arabia

    The experiment would have also required complete isolation at birth from all media which features violence - which is a slightly large proportion

    It would be like a big brother house, but even worse :(

    I borrowed my friend's airsoft gun and we had a battle in a really rocky place (rocks 10ft tall, and mossy of varying heights and shapes), it was lots of fun, i even managed to blow some moss into my classmate's eyes
