Airsoft: what is it?


Pretty close to the most popular paintball, airsoft is a leisure activity between several players equipped with replicas of weapons propelling plastic balls. Airsoft teams compete for the objectives of an organized scenario. The projectiles used do not contain paint and the game is based solely on fair play.
The replicas, or "airsoft guns", use a mechanism by gas or compressed air. But behind all these technologies hides activity quite good child, far from all the stereotypes that can be imagined.

 

The airsofters do NOT play in the war!

 
Indeed, the war is far from being a game at the base ... Even if most airsofteurs put on a military uniform (very useful to remain invisible of the other players) or police of intervention and that the equipments are well replicas of real weapons, we are absolutely not pro-military. We play a game where players hit by a ball are eliminated.

We do not deny, however, the close link between certain players' outfits and the military universe ... Some players are passionate about it! Airsoft-gun.be also tries to promote fantasy scenarios, imaginary far from the theme of war and humorous outfits rather than simulation camouflage.

Unlike military computer games, the airsoft is a hobby practiced to take the air of the countryside, meet friends, have fun in a game based on fair play and good mood.
