Question opinions on airsoft

just like to say hi im new to the site and it looks great. i have noticed that most people that play airsoft at on point or another played paintball and judging by the simularity between the two i wasnt surprised. which brings me to my question what do you (paintball player) think of airsoft?

i think its a pussy way to play paintball. Thats my opinion. Paintball is better because it hurts when u get hit. giving u fear so its a better game. If no pain was involved then people would just run up the field shooting.

airsoft would be much better if they used the paintball ball pellets instead of the yellow plastic things.

you gotta tell me when the national diarrhea championships are going on. I asked someone how they know if they get hit in airsoft and he said "it hurts so much that you get out the game instead of getting hit again."

so generally you guys dont like it. just to say a few things; they do make 6mm paintballs for use in airsoft guns but they are unpredictable; and yes iv heard that some people dont feel the pellets but iv also heard that they break bare skin; also i dont play i was just wonderin what you thought. oh yea and 80% of people who call something gay and use the word as a homophobic slur have had or are having homophobic tensions.

Airsoft is cool. I wouldn't dump 400+ into a gun though. Thats for paintball.

I just got a little Diasy rifle and pistol that I play "War" with.

there's not really that many similarities, airsoft is mostly for simulations of war. Paintball is a sport that is actually trying to distance itself from the war image. BTW, ignore most of the retards in this thread.

Airsoft would hurt considering the guns that are used (usually) shoot harder then the K-Mart/Walmart electo-minis. I personally don't like Airsoft, but it's not cool to put it down by saying "it sucks" or something that shows how stupid you really are.

I play airsoft fairly frequently since it is cheaper.

Both sports are fun though. My friends play airsoft most of the time so taht is what I usually end up playing.

and if you don't think airsoft hurts let me empty 600rnds of bb's going 500fps onto your back. I can gaurantee you it will hurt.

that is the airsolf person's point of view. paintballs(in GENERAL) have more respect for other people, and the sport.
i personally like paintball better

Paintballs don' hurt THAT much. I think if you think paintballs hurt so much, then YOUR a pussy. Airsoft is more realistic in terms of wargames. I'm not saying thats what airsoft is. But I'd much rather play a wargame with a Tokyo Marui M4A1 then with a Tippmann shooting brightly colored paint.

Its not that I need to empty my magazine into you at 500fps. Im just sick of everyone I talk to saying that airsoft is a wussy sport and taht it doesn't hurt.

First of all it will hurt, but that is not the point of the game.

Second of all the guns they use are higher fps so that they have a longer effective range.

I've never played but I would like to try it some time. I can't believe how negative some people are about it! I bet most of the people complaining about it have never even tried it. I guess that's what to expect when posting in a PB forum.

the pellets do hurt. =\ Atleast from the one I had kept to fire at targets and dogs that strayed into the gardens. Nothing to cry over, but you can feel it.

Also agreed. I've been shot with a spring, which is the lowest velocity you can get.. I got shot from 10 feet away and they sting. More then Paintballs. How abotu soem sciene?

The smaller bb's , usually .6mm, have a large surface area.

The larger paintballs (.68caliber) have much larger surface areas.

Ever been stepped on with bare feet by someone wearing sneakers? It hurts.

Ever had your foot stepped on by someone wearing hells? It ****ing kills.

ITs teh same thing. The ones with the larger surface area can distribute the force more evenly, thus hurting less. But the small bb's shoot at faster velocities and have smaller surface area.

That's why you can almost say there is sniping in airsoft. They go muchos farther.

the only reason there is sniping in airsoft is because thier guns are allowed to shoot more then 300 fps. if you crank up your gun to shoot 500 fps like those sniper guns, ittle go just as far.

paintballs are bigger/more mass. you didnt take that into consideration.
