you going? I have the answer, the wonderful world of Airsoft
BB pistols and rifles. New heights of realism, previously not possible
can be accomplished with Airsoft guns and gaming. These guns
are realistic replicas of almost all the used weapons in warfare,
but they fire 6mm plastic BB's. Our goal at AirsoftSplat
is to help you understand the sport of Airsoft gaming, and its
superiority over other similar sports. You will never go back!
A Short History of Airsoft BB Guns and Rifles
Airsoft guns were developed first in the US. Then, making it's way over to Japan
in the 1980's, the sport of Airsoft gained in popularity rather quickly. Since real firearms are illegal in Asia, Airsoft
gaming soon became all the rage. With the advent of the Internet
in the 1990's, the Airsoft BB guns and rifles niche has spread
all over the world and made great leaps in America. Especially
in the United States, many establishments that previously carried
paintball guns are now also moving over to more realistic BB
guns, such as airsoft.
Advocates prefer Airsoft rifles, pistols, and machine guns
as a better choice than paintball guns due to their inexpensive
nature. Also, the weapons and guns add realism to the game and
sport, allowing for more tactical maneuvers. Airsoft BB guns
and pistols take the level of your basic paintball, laser tag,
or shooter game, and enhance it until you feel like you're playing
actual war games. These war games include
scenarios, objectives, and team participation and planning.
It's an intense sport highly suited for those simulation tactics.
The Low Down About Airsoft BB Guns and Rifles
Like many sports and games, if used correctly, there's nothing
dangerous or scary about a game played with Airsoft BB guns
and rifles. The game itself is can be played in an outdoor or
indoor venue, although most usually being outdoor. There are
several different playing styles; some incorporate separate
teams, who either freeform skirmish or try to achieve an objective,
such as capture the flag; other styles include multiple teams
and a process of elimination or "kill them all" in
which the first team to be completely eliminated is considered
While capture the flag is somewhat common for a battle played
with Airsoft BB guns and rifles, many other scenarios are just
as popular and commonly played. For example, you can stage search
and rescue or search and destroy missions, or launch assaults
on the enemy's base. Either way, as the game plays out, members
of each team will try to "kill" or tag their opponents.
In a game using Airsoft BB guns and rifles, a player is "killed" when he or she receives a hit anywhere on their body. Regardless of whether or not a hit would be a mortal wound, a hit equals a "kill." When a player is "killed," it's up to the rules of the individual game whether he or she is out of the game for good, or only has to sit out for a short time.
