What is Airsoft

      Airsoft is a sport in which participants eliminate opponents by hitting each other with spherical non-metallic pellets launched via replica weapons called airsoft guns. Airsoft is commonly compared to paintball, with some key differences being: Unlike paintballs, airsoft pellets do not mark their target and hits are not always visibly apparent. Airsoft pellets may leave red marks or "welts" to their target however rare that might be. The airsoft relies on an honor system in which it is the ethical duty of the person who has been hit to call themselves out regardless of whether or not anyone saw it happen.[1] Most airsoft guns are magazine-fed with some, especially pistols, having co2 canisters, and tend to much more closely replicate real guns. This makes them more popular especially for military simulation and historical reenactments. For casual players airsoft is much cheaper to try than paintball, with manual-cocking pistols costing as little as $5 a piece and airsoft pellets costing as little as a twentieth of a cent per round.Forums.
