I have several airsoft guns but mine are all spring powered. Many years ago I got ahold of the ones that look and operate like real firearms, plastic shells, metal bodies and magazines, before they were banned. They shoot pretty accurate and close up hurt like hell when they hit you. Just like this:

I remember that. We kids shot thousands of BB`s and pellets. And our eyes were good enough to track them out of the bbl. shooting arial targets.
I can`t see a .308 bullet. But I know where it is going still.

I didn't get any pictures!! Dag nabbit!

It was pretty cool & I'd do it again. I've got this zit-looking blemish on my cheek from getting hit. It didn't hurt and never thought it'd leave a mark.

We shoot with a PA group... They only play at legal sanctioned fields (Paintball fields). Your guns have to be chrono'd and must be below 400FPS with .020 BB's. Depending on your FPS of your gun - you have minimum engagement distances to comply with. You're not allowed to shoot someone close up -as that can hurt.

I was doing pretty good....making shots, crawling around in the dirt...
The one scenario - I got shot in the leg. Which - according to their rules, your leg is un-usable. So - I crawled on my elbows.

Boy...my legs are surely hurtin' today!!

Nice! M4! Now ya just gotta find an airsoft forum around (especially one in your neighborhood). Lots of stuff you can do to those things. My husband has one with a grenade launcher on it.

This small town I live in has this place that I bought my AEG from. They are really into events and upgrades. It's pretty cool!

I guess there is a pretty serious community that these folks are fostering. They are more into paintball, but the airsoft community is catching up.

I've never done paintball myself but from what I hear (and have seen on the skin of friends) that is hurts like hell and leaves HUGE welts.

Airsoft doesn't hurt - it stings slightly if you get hit pretty close-up. It can leave welts, but they're little and don't swell up. I'm old...and can't handle the pain.

The group I shoot with has strict rules of different fps & footage. You can't shoot an automatic gun any hotter than 400fps and engagement distance is 25 feet I believe.

It hurts if you're just standing there and your buddy pops you unexpectedly..but when you're out on the field and the adrenaline is going you don't notice it too much. I usually play with dickies pants and a t-shirt, and a face mask of course

don't get into Airsoft.... airsoft is for posers, get a paintball gun or get a real gun.

Too late - already doing it! And I have a few real guns.

Like I said, I'm old and don't like the pain.....so paintball is out.

Venting frustrations and shooting at people is actually fun. Can't do that with real guns.
