Airsoft is a game in which participants eliminate opponents by hitting each other with spherical non-metallic pellets launched via replica firearms called airsoft guns. Airsoft is commonly compared to paintball, with some key differences being:
Unlike paintballs, airsoft pellets do not always mark their target and hits are not always visibly apparent; therefore airsoft relies on an honor system in which it is the duty of the person who has been hit to call themselves out regardless of whether or not anyone happen.
Most airsoft guns are magazine-fed with no air tank, and tend to much more closely replicate real guns. This makes them more popular especially for military simulation and historical reenactments.
For casual players airsoft is much cheaper to try than paintball, with manual-cocking pistols costing as little as $5 a piece and airsoft pellets costing as little as .2 cents per round.
Gameplay varies in style and composition but often range from short-term skirmishes, organized scenarios, C.Q.B. (Close Quarters battle), field, military simulations (MilSim), or historical reenactments. They are played in some indoor courses, and outdoor (fields). Combat situations on the battlefield may involve the use of military tactics to achieve objectives set in each game. Participants may attempt to emulate the tactical equipment and accessories used by modern military and police organizations. A game is normally kept safe by a trained professional and the weapons are usually powered by gas or various types of batteries. A gun's power is checked through a chronograph and usually measured in FPS (Feet per second). Different game sites allow a different amount of FPS, although usually a sniper's FPS would be higher than a sub machine gun's FPS, because a sniper needs more range and they have a minimum engagement range to reduce the danger from being hit at close range by a powerful weapon.

    Airsoft Laws for Backyard use?

    We live in a smaller town outside of Eugene. We do live in our small city’s limits. Our backyard backs up to a greenway and it’s fenced in. We have a dead end street on the side and a neighbor on the other side. My husband and I are not gun enthusiasts. We’ve never owned guns. I grew up around...
