Airsofting

Recommended Posts

So in the past few months I've started going Airsofting and loved it, I'm in the process of buying my own rifle and wondered if we have any fellow clan members who do it as well.

I actually airsoft aswell, I have a M4, a glock and AWP (L96). But i'm probably quitting soon. Don't really have time nor the funds to play frequently.

I think we are talking about paintball?

 

Its similar but much better than paintball. Essentially its a contact honor sport. You use replica guns and shoot plastic balls usually weighing 0.20 or 0.25 grams. Its pretty much like a COD game but a sport in a sense. If your hit you yell 'HIT HIT HIT' and proceed to the re spawn etc depending on the game mode. It hurts a little and can bruise, but it generally fades after a small amount of time pain wise. Can leave some sick looking bruises. Usually theirs different types of sites eg CQB - Close Quarter combat, and normal games. Generally CQB sites have engagement rules to prevent overkill, as being shot from a rifle that can shoot a plastic pellet at 300 feet per second at 1 meter away can sting a bit. You need mandatory eye protection, and lower face is very much recommended if you like your teeth. Usually its no full auto at under 10 meters. 

 

Paintballing is gernally more well known but its messy, very expensive to play with the balls, whilst airsoft has the initial expense for the gun and gear. Its getting more and more popular worldwide with some places even having 2000 people play. With tanks ect being used as well. Crazy stuff.

Yeah i've heard Aus has a water airsoft thing.

 

Paintball is more messy, but airsoft is WAY more cost effective and easier. Way more personal additions you can do too.

Yes we have water pellets that get loaded into battery operated guns, can buy then off eBay for about 300 Australia dollars for a good one. But if you buy then make sure to buy from Australian sellers

Brought this for my first gun. Ares Amoeba AM-013 Honey Badger M4 Full Rail - Black. Going to be buying a foregrip if I don't like using the hammerhead grips at the front/Mag grip. Also looking into a Red dot sight. Plenty of mags brought now too :) Image result for Ares Amoeba AM-013 Honey Badger M4 Full Rail - Black

I've never actually 'played' airsoft. Def have shot one of those before though, and messed around in the yard etc.
