    I don't really play but me and a few buddies want to get a couple guns to fuck around with.

    I was happy with my $20 springer P226 but then I saw a video of a gas powered G18C with semi and full auto modes, an open breach, and a slide that blows back :coold:

    BUT the cheapest I've seen it is like $100 :hsugh:

    Not for what I want to do with it...

    I used to be heavy into paintballing.

    I just want a decent gun (which you can get for 50-60) to shoot my unknowing friends with :wiggle:

    You cant get a decent paintball gun for under $150 :mamoru:

    plus you can shoot them inside :o


    Now if I was getting back into the sport then by all means Paintball >>>> airsoft :bowdown:

    What exactly is involved in "playing" airsoft? Does shooting your gf in the ass constitute "playing" airsoft. If all there is to is running around with fake guns then I stopped doing that shit when I was about 10.

    I want to get a gas blowback 1911, but that's more for force on force training.

    expect to pay a 100 bucks for a blowback pistol. theyre quite entertaining. but gets old. stick with real guns.

    true story: a couple of my friends were messing around with theyre airsofts in a neighborhood and some lady called the cops on them thinking they were real guns. next thing you know, theyre were like 10 cop cars and a heli in the air. the officers pulled them over at gun point, even having a shotgun on theyre backs. scary shit man; on top of that our police officers are known to be trigger happy! my friends would have got off easy and explain to them that they were airsoft guns, however, they took off theyre orange tips. they faced a misdeamnor charge and they had to complete a 30 $ book that was due in 30 days.

    I'd spend $100 for a pistol, but it'd be a CZ-52. Airsoft is :greddy: really, really :greddy:

    Sounds kind of expensive for a toy gun.

    They play on the "honor" system. I think they make little mini paintballs for it, too.

    Some use different gases.

    Others are electronic and spring loaded.

    I guess its so big because the weapons are exact replicas of the real thing.

    My Dad has a buddy who used to be SWAT and he said they trained with airsoft guns quite often :dunno:

    Since when is airsoft tolerated in here? I thought the rule was "real bullets only"
