Well when you think about it:
GOOD high end paintball guns cost about $1,000
a good reasonable gun in airsoft is like $400-$500

Ammunition:
Paint ball its like $40 or more for a box of like 2000 balls
in airsoft for about $10 or so you can get like 2500 bb's

But then you can get higher prices when you start getting accesories for your guns and upgrading them n all

right now im in a airsoft team : www.geocities.com/nsaairsoft

Funny, once while playing my G/F in the urban field around here, she was on a 2nd story window and I decide to make a break for the next building. (I have a Tippmann with a Teardrop barrel, she has a Pirannah. Needless to say, I have the better marker)

I ended up getting hit in the head, 3 times in the arm, once in the left torso and once on my left leg....all within 3 seconds. I had to lay down on the ground for 10 minutes because I was in so much pain. She ran over there to make sure I was ok and apologized 500 times. Good times lemmie tell you.

But get me out in the woods where I do my sniper thing....MUAHAHAHA!

I just got back from a massive airsoft party. I even have the scars to prove it

Airsoft guns range in price, anywhere from 15$ to 500$. You can get a good one for anywhere from 100-300 bucks. Ammo is reuseable.

Pretty much you have to be honest, because there is no real way to tell (unless of course you have a massive welt on your forehead). Usually there are refs or judges. Its easier to just go outside and play than paintball cause you do'nt have to suit up (just goggles) and don't have to clean up paint afterwards. I love it.

My buddies and I used to do something kind of like that with our pellet guns when we were about 14 or so. One of the guys I knew got popped in the mouth, right between his eye teeth, broke both of them out.

Still though what is there range and accuracy in comparison to paintball? My only beef with paintball is the wind catches the balls to easy and the only way for realism to occur is to spend tons of money on the high quality guns.

Airsoft is a lot safer than pellet guns, they won't break the skins or knock out your teeth.

Accuracy is a bummer though. Cheaper guns fire slow enough you can almost dodge the bbs. The wind will catch them. However, guns with 'topspin' are much better. Thats when theres a spin on the bb so it isn't affected as much.

Ranger thats called HOP UP. Hop up adds a spin to the ball just like he says and it gives more acuracy to the bb. Most AEG guns have that and some GBB do.... But ya with the bbs at like 150 feet you can see them coming and have enough time to dodge them. Sometimes wen you see an enemy like 150 feet you dont really have to hide from them...its kinda a contest to see who can aim there guns high enough to reach the other lol

Doesn't sound much better than paintball.
