Some airsoft guns are so realistic in the fact that they are collector's items in their own right with people playing hundreds of dollars to upgrade various parts. Paintball ammo, however, is around 10x more expensive than airsoft ammo.
You can also visit Best & Affordable Airsoft Online Store at Alchemy Airsoft to buy airsoft guns.
So in a nutshell, compared to paintball, airsoft is:
– cheaper – the guns, the ammo, the gas, etc.
– More realistic guns
– A little less painful
Finally, the airsoft equipment that you wear is intended to keep you safe, and unless you do something boneheaded, airsoft is one of the safest sports out there other than gateball or curling. So, you can buy it online.
There are plenty of ways to get hurt like smashing into a tree or twisting your ankle on a rock, all of which I have done, but generally, if you invest in good safety equipment and use it, you'll live to play another day. Only watch out for biting and stinging insects.
So there you have it, pick up a gun, throw in a mag, get out there and have some safe wild fun! A simple way to own some of the most historic military weapons of all time even if it is a mere replica.
