Today, my mother asked me why her new airsoft gun wasn't working. I explained to her that it doesn't actually shoot air, it requires pellets too. She looked at me like I was too stupid to be her son. FML

It's not THAT bad. I used to be apprehensive of playing airsoft with my cousins, until the day I took a paintball to the crotch while playing paintball with them instead.

Airsoft guns are quite fun and games until some scumbag brings one that's CO2 powered and has the bullets travel at 412 mph. I learned that the hard way, and had welts up my arm for quite a while after. The damned thing was actually made out of metal and heavy enough to be a real gun.


It really depends on the gun as well as the weight and quality of the pellets, and of course the distance it is fired at you from, for how bad it's gonna hurt. I love to play both paintball and airsoft and my husband has some great guns for both games. I can say this much... I would rather take a pellet from a generic department store airsoft gun than a paintball from any paintball gun. BUT I would rather take a shot from any paintball gun rather than my husband's souped up airsoft sniper rifle. The thing is solid metal and fires these special heavy pellets at ridiculous speeds and trajectories. I have seen what those pellets do. Even after having my ex accidentally shoot my arm point blank with 5 paintballs and having to dig out little shards of paintball shells from the wound.... I would still take it over the sniper shot.

Generic department store airsoft guns hurt too! My ex (bf at the time) and I had just bought guns to shoot cans cause we were bored. He tells me to shoot him so he can see how it feels. His reaction? Shoot me back. He said he didn't mean to and it was just reflex. Yeah right. :( we were probably only a foot away from each other.

Actually pro airsoft guns don't hurt them at much because they are usually regulated at 400fps or less with a .2gram bb or and snipers (at least at my field) can do 550fps but have an med of 100ft
