LOL!! Translated into Paintball Terms, you just said,

"Yeah, my guns velocity is SO LOW, I have to aim at the CLOUDS to hit someone 20 feet away!"

It's not set properly.. It's cranked full bore.

I own a TM M16A2, TM Spas 12, and HFC MP5.

Airsoft does suck..you can tell if you get hit but you could cheat and say you didn't in paintball you have to wipe but you can't get it off sometimes so you can't cheat.

Your opinions aren't really valid if you're only played paintball..

Edit-I'm still giggling about that moron with the hop up comment...

Too expensive.. Even though it's $0.005 per BB (CANADIAN)..

To start, though.. It's VERY expensive.

I totally understand .
I'm just saying, with free energy from a wall socket, and 4000 shots for 20 bucks CAD, it's not expensive to play on any level.

wrong, hop up is a thing that gives the ball backspin. it gives the ball too much backspin and hence it goes up instead of straight

Yes... I'm wrong...

All right, smart guy..
Tokyo Marui's patented Higher Operating Power unit, or 'Hop' up, put's a small backspin on the bb to counteract the force of gravity, somewhat in the sense rifling does to stabalise a real bullet. The spin on the BB creates upward force, while the BB stays on it's original Path, giving much higher accuracy.

To PROPERLY set your hop up, it's recommended to CRANK IT FULL BORE, so the BB FLIES WAY OFF, the slowly turn it down until finding the desired accuracy.

Thank you spud.. and anyway, not all guns hop up is adjustable. Oh and if you had a gun with low velocity and you aimed at someones feet, i dont really think it would hit the person in the chest now would it? This is a 20 dollar gun we are talking about.. he doesnt know how to adjust it, and probably doesnt even care. I AM JUST STATING THAT WHEN MY FRIEND SHOOTS HIS GUN THE BB CURVES UP A LOT. Lets just shut up about it already.. god.

....Hence me saying 'aim at the clouds'.

The point was to get across that it's totally wrong...


Edit- Point out to me ONE TM gun with un-adjustable hop up, and I'll stand corrected.

2nd Edit- Also, a little more in depth. The reason the BB flys way up is because, you're correct, it is cranked. The Hop up rubber being too far causes a greater upward force on BB from the higher backspin, overpowering the gravitational pull of the BB, hence flying upwards.

As far as I know, the gun in the picture isnt. Its not like ive tried to adjust it or anything.. Ive only shot the damn gun once.. no need to make a big deal out of it. Lets leave it at that and move on..

Trust me, I know alot about Airsoft.

But those Paintball BB's are Satan incarnate... For comparison, try throwing a squirrell into a running engine and cleaning the mess...

Pics of my M16 coming in a minute, but here's my Spas Shottie:

the reason the bbs fly up is sort of because of backspin but it depends on what gun you are using and the ammo. when i first started airsoft i had a cheap pistol and the yellow bbs wich are the lightest that you can get and are the most common and the pistol shoots somewhat straight, however if you buy a gun like an aeg (full size electric gun and sniper rifles and shotguns) that has a velocity of over 290 the yellow bbs are very light and in accurate so you will have to spend more to buy heavier bbs which are usualy white, but sniper rifles go faster than aegs so they usualy use even heavier bbs and get very expensive but you have to get them to keep your gun accurate. the point im trying to make is that its not the gun thats innaccurate (most of the time) but its the bbs you shoot with that make it inaccurate. like paintball you can compare brass eagle to the yellows and wgp to more expensive ones.
