Beg to differ, with the greater accuracy and range of airsoft the game is more of a hunt, good tactics, and combat skills game, than the point and hope howitzer arc, spray down the woodline game,total luck game, paintball has become.

I am totally into airsoft, sold off most of my paintball gear, and enjoy the thrill and skill of airsoft. Not the wallyworld guns, the good AEG's, I own a TM M16A1VN 400fps accurate to 70m, hits at 100m, a TOP M-60STD 380fps 600rpm, TM M-14 350fps, again accurate at 70m hits out past 100m, as compared to 20m paintball guns.

Walking point, knowing that somewhere out there is someont that can hit you from 100m, pumps a lot more adreniline than any 20m spray fest.

There's no way an airsoft gun will shoot 100m effectively.....they have an effective range of about 65 ft and they are extremely prone to the wind because of their weight....unless you play indoors or close quarters stick with paintball.

i would rather airsoft than paintball even though i do love paintball also but no one airsofts out here and im not that rich paintball is cheap to get into but expensive in a long run and airsoft is vise- versa so ya i just stick to paintball cause everyone does it out hear and nobody i mean nobody airsofts and there is no airsoft stores.Airsoft is sweet cause of the mil-sim.

So if you wana get into paintball or airsoft and people airsoft where you live and you got 500 bucks go get a aeg and airsoft but if not be like me andjust paintball.

Before you make such grand pronouncements you should try researching the airsoft equipment that OS specifically mentioned in his post.

the reason i dont play airsoft is my dad and i dumped a few hudred into paintball equipment and didnt want to just give it up

 we both like guns and were a little disapointed about the look of the paintball guns (until i joined the forum and got some sites like opsgear)

so we go to camps and just play campaigns and scenarios with our milsim guns

70m is effective, can hit at 100m. Using heavier .25/.32/.43gr BB's at higher than stock (stock 280-310fps vs modified up to 400fps, sniper rifles can go up to 450fps) accuracy and range is greater than your average wallyworld cheapo plastic airsoft gun shooting .12's at 240fps. My M-14 set up as a XM-21 Sniping System with highair chamber, 200% spring, shooting 450fps with .43's will punch paper at 100m, 6in shot groups, and I have hit opponants out to 125-130m.

The accuracy increase from .20g to .25g is in itself considerable. Full Infantry rifles (M16A1/2 M-14 etc)shoot further and more accurate than carbines (M-4's)and SMG's (MP5's), simple balistics.

8mm airsoft guns shoot even further.

Price is right too, 3750 .25g BB's @$11.00, just recharge battery after eash use, and you are good to go for a day, instead of @$60.00 plus for 2000 paintballs and up to $5.00 per fill. And my M16A1 complete with factory mods costs less than many stock hi-end paintmuskets, and you do not need to add every after market add on to make you "competitive".

Until you actually play airsoft with people who know and expierience the total difference, you can not judge, I too was an airsoft doubter till I fired a real AEG M16 and memories returned and my eyes were opened. Now like I said I am sold on airsoft, and my paintball gear went on ebay.

We played air soft back in the days I guess, but we called the guns BB-Guns.

Paintball > Airsoft.

Does airsoft hurt more or less when being hit?  And is it MORE of an honor system than paintball, since the airsoft leaves no mark (or does it)?  Just curious....
