What are airsoft guns?
For those who are new to airsoft, these guns shoot 6mm round pellets typically made of plastic and commonly known as BBs. They travel at speeds much lower than real bullets and although a bit painful when hit by one of these pellets, they cannot kill someone nor cause heavy-bleeding injuries. Even though Airsoft Guns are considered a toy gun, safety precautions should still be taken when playing with these replicas. As mentioned most airsoft guns are the exact copies of the real guns. Some manufacturers even use the real mold of the original firearm in order to create the look, feel and even weight of their real-steel counterpart. Automatic Electric Guns can only cause welts. It is still painful however when the BB pellets hit the skin, since they travel at high speeds in excess of 400 FPS. That is why during airsoft battles also known as "skirmishes", protective gears must be worn to avoid serious injuries, especially around the eyes and face. We recommend a full face shield similar to a paintball mask. We do not recommend safety glasses as they only protect the eyes and not the face or mouth. We only recommend you use Airsoft glasses for target shooting. Thick protective outfits are also recommended to reduce the pain from being shot. There are special camouflages similar to those used by the military that can be worn. Sweatshirts and thick pants can also protect the skin from being directly hit.
Airsoft guns have 4 main categories:
Airsoft Automatic Electric guns or Rifles (AEG) are the most popular airsoft rifle, although they are the most complex and expensive option in your airsoft arsenal. Airsoft Electric Gun were the main reason airsoft players grew in the 1990's. AEG's have a motor and gear box and similiar to RC cars.
