i came to pb from airsoft because there was nobody near me that played. has anyone here ever tried it? and i dont mean the guns you have to cock each time you shoot, i mean electric and gas guns shooting above 350 fps.

No, I'm not really into airsoft. Be prepared to be flamed on here, though.

really the onl ypros to airsoft are the ammo is cheaper, and it is more realistic. generally a lot more people paintball. reall ythe only con to pb is paint is expensive. 2000 paintballs cost about 60 bucks. 2000 airsoft bbs about $8.

and please, no flames

yup, that name sounds familiar. i just started pb 2 days ago. i just got fed up with having nobody to play with. i realised that if i got my aeg i wouldnt use it very often and would have wasted $350

Hey,
I came from airsoft too, not many people to play with in Vermont but a substantial more to play PB.
I had a Steyr Aug but am taking a huge hit on it when selling... got it all for like 500 or so and selling for 250 or so....

For 500 bucks you better have gotten a lot of exta accessories otherwise you got ripped off in the first place.

Yeah I played once on one of those day-long deals

Its fun, until you get unloaded on. I swear, those plastic bbs hurt way more than a paintball.

Paintball is better, my 2 cents.
