Airsoft is an activity used primarily for recreation or sport wherein replica firearms shooting 6mm or 8mm plastic rounds are used for personal collection, gaming (similar to Paintball)
What are AIRSOFT / BB guns? BB guns use air and spring power and are intended for general fun target practice using 6mm plastic bb's. BB guns are totally harmless providing safety rules are observed.
Airsoft skirmish games vary depending on location, budget, and the quantity of participants but often range from short term skirmishes and organized scenarios, it is much like paintball in its game play, strategy, tactics and scenarios. Airsoft is rapidly catching up with paintball in terms of popularity. The advantage of airsoft over paintball is a lower coat base and bb guns are easier to use and maintain, and lots of bb gun consumers enjoy using their guns in the back garden for target practice.
