What the basic game of airsoft is all about\r\nThe game of airsoft is all about people using an airsoft gun, which come in different forms such as sniper rifle, assault rifle, revolver and pistols. The point of the game is to eliminate opponents by hitting them with one of the pellets. Not to worry, because the pellet doesn\u2019t leave any damage or noticeable mark on the target. The game is dependent on the honor system in this regard.\r\nPlaying the game in actual league play\r\nSome people aren\u2019t even aware that there are different airsoft leagues throughout the country. These are groups of people who come together for the purpose of enjoying the game, but at a high level. Different leagues accommodate different levels of player and those who seek to join one can find complete lists on the web.\r\nBolt action technology with airsoft guns\r\nBolt action technology is a form of repeater firearm action. The handling of the cartridges in and out of the guns barrel chamber is handled by means of manipulating the bolt handle in a manual way.\r\nDifferent types of BBs with airsoft guns\r\nIt\u2019s going to be very important for users to understand what it means to have different BBs or what others call pellets. Here\u2019s a simple rundown:\r\n\r\n \tAluminum-These are designed to be heavy, which allow for greater FPS.\r\n \tBiodegradable-These are the type of pellets that are designed to be on the environmentally friendly side.\r\n \tBBs that glow in the dark-These are BBs that are easy to see and night and are designed to create a tracer effect that\u2019s very realistic when used at night.\r\n \tNon-tracer BBs-These types of BBs are made to be dark colored so it\u2019s tougher to trace where it came from.\r\n \tMarkers-BBs that come with a specific type of power on them in order to mark a spot that it hits.\r\n \tMetallic-Designed to be heavier and harder than regular BBs such as those that are polymer. These can actual cause injury.\r\n \tCeramic-BBs that are made using precise specifications in order to make sure weight, surface shape and dimensions are uniform.\r\n \tPaint filled BBs-These are pellets that are paint filled, very much like what you\u2019d expect with paintball.\r\n\r\nAction and power with airsoft guns\r\nThe way a gun is powered is going to affect what type of action a user can hope to get out of it. The three different forms of action are electric, spring and gas. Here\u2019s a basic rundown:\r\n\r\n \tSpring powered-Guns that make use of a spring in order to fire the plastic BB out of the barrel. These operate on mechanical power, which requires a user to cock the gun each time a round is fired off.\r\n \tElectric powered-These types of airsoft guns also utilize springs, but can do this without requiring the gun to be manually cocked each time. These typically come with a rechargeable battery as well as battery charger. Electric powered options are semi-automatic.\r\n \tGas powered-These types of airsoft guns make use of different forms of compressed gas in order to shoot off BBs. You\u2019ll find that they are considered intermediate options and work very good for target shooting outside.\r\n\r\nSpring powered options are seen as being for those who are just getting into using these types of guns. They usually aren\u2019t intimidating in terms of raw power and action. Electric powered options are higher powered and work well for those graduating from the spring powered level or even gas powered level. Gas powered options can shoot at higher velocities than spring powered options, but shouldn\u2019t overwhelm a user.
