Of course! But I have a better idea, how about you go on a airsoft forum instead of a paintball forum :dodgy:

1.) 6mm plastic BBs

2.) It is traditionally played one hit and you're out, but people can modify the rules if they wish.

3.) You can feel or hear (if you're wearing like a winter coat) when you get hit.

You're correct about the field thing, you usually just play at someone's house.

Try http://airsoftatlanta.com/spring.htm then scroll down to UHC 92FS, good beginner gun. Pick your favorite color.

Also, you'll need to pick up some bbs, just check out their ammo page and order yourself some .12 bbs.

Paintball masks usually, but you can wear like a ski mask and googles if you want. Clothing, usually you'll be fine in a t shirt or BDUs if you wanna wear them. Spring is the simplest. Gas is good, but gas costs money, you have to keep your guns filled up with gas all the time, and it's a much bigger PITA then filling up a C02 tank. Electric guns are the best but only true AEGs (Automatic Electric Guns) they are usually made by Tokyo Marui and usually cost around 300. Other electrics are minis, or crappy rip offs that shoot really crappy.

For just the occasional plinker/target shooter, spring is your best bet.

Most pellets are all the same. But some guns (a lot of spring pistols) will only take .12s. .12s generally are a lower grade, but you can find some good ones. The ones Airsoft Atlanta sells are pretty much as good as you can buy as far as .12s go.
