Airsoft pistols are the new rage at my HS...anyone here play?

Airsoft is pretty big around here too, I don't really do it, but from what I heard, to get a good gun can get pretty pricey :-o

:-? I've been out of high school too long. :-?

So, I'll ask the dumb question......

Is that like a paintball gun? :-?

they are modeled after real guns but shoot small plastic balls between 200 and 300 fps. I dont want a gas powered M16, just a pistol srping gun...those can still got 250 fps, which is sweet.

like these...but there are SO many i was wondering if anyone had any experience and could reccomend one.

They dont hurt, but you can really feel them hit you. Its like a little pinch...unless someone has an assault rifle :*)

Airsoft is awesome, awesome, awesome. I'm not familiar enough with it to recommend one or the other. I have played a few times, though. When I was working as a reporter, I wrote a story about these guys, and they let me come back a few times and play. They use their facility for training for law enforcement officials as much as for recreational players. So freaking sweet, I thought it beat paintball any day of the week. ;-D

It's big here too. Some kids spend around $100 for some gun they're gonna get burned out on in a few months. I'd rather buy another Xbox for that.

I appreciate the responses, but is their anyone here that knows airsoft well enough to reccomend a gun?

I was thinkin


http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... s&v=glance

or

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... s&v=glance

but i dont know if i wanna spend that much for what could be a fad, I may just grab a $20 pistol like this

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... s&v=glance

or this

http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/de ... 8&v=glance

but i would rather spend a bit more and have a gun that is feared by my enimies!

I happen to have a sick yard for airsoft, out front we have a huge area of woods with all kidns of trees and stuff.

At school, people are doing dirve by's. SOOO great. If you are walking to your car, you have to be on the lookout...someone drives by, bam, bam, and you are hit...but now the HS banned them.

Anyway, i am looking forward to starting...looks like a blast!
