Many people do not know what airsoft is!
They say what’s airsoft ??
Trying to not explain it’s a bunch of nutter’s running around with replica guns stirs up all sorts of mental images, unfortunate as airsoft is still in its infancy we all make the same comment (its similar to paintball!!)
Then generally they accept the fact and as most people have taken the time to play paintball relate to the mental images they have on their paintball experiences.
Now the fact that airsoft vaguely connects to paintball is a damn shame,
s.w.a.t. Has been operating airsoft since 2001 and has, as some have put it being the founding fathers of the state and temperament of airsoft thus far, even though a rocky path s.w.a.t. had chosen to take, made other's think and expand the way airsoft should be presented.
To further add to this presentation this section is designed to show in layman’s terms what airsoft is to the total novice, and i am sure once you have researched this section, it will make your mind up to play the gentlemen’s sport which requires a bit more skill and commitment than your average paintball experience.
Airsoft is a modern combat sport or recreational hobby in which participants eliminate opponents by hitting each other with spherical airsoft pellets commonly known as bb’s, launched from airsoft replica guns, Participants typically employ the use of varying types of airsoft replica’s designed as replicas of real firearms, tactical gear, and accessories used by modern military and police organisations.
Airsoft has its roots in late- 1970’s Japan where firearms were difficult or impossible to obtain due to local laws and people sought a legal alternative to owning actual firearms. The vast majority of airsoft guns, accessories, and after market upgrade parts are also manufactured in East Asian regions such as Japan, china, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Many new, more affordable, Chinese guns are dominating the airsoft market. They are competing against more reliable established companies like G&G, Classic Army, ICS, and Tokyo Marui.
