The majority of the times when I keep in touch with people that are not to acquainted with the Airsoft game I am told that it is a very expensive sport. This misconception mainly comes from the similarity of Airsoft and Paintball. In paintball you not merely are bound to utilize gas powered metal guns and rifles however the paintballs may also be expensive consumables.
With this particular article I want to clear what exactly a bit. Airsoft is one of the most affordable game I can think of that features team work and shooting.
The so called BBs that you shoot with are small plastic pellets with spherical form. The absolute most expensive package I possibly could find is 3000 for approximately $35. The standard and popular airsoft bbs in an offer of 6000 cost $10. Compare that to 2000 paintballs for $70 from the best ones and 2000 for $30 for the regulars. When it comes to consumables Airsoft is fairly cheap.
The first time I went to an airsoft war game many years back I bought a cheap airsoft gun which was on sale. I paid $2 at a retail store. They’d some cheap airsoft shotguns too.
This is in time when the game was not so popular. Now you will find a cheap airsoft gun on the market with a cost below $1. Trust in me or not, a cost of $0.25 or $0.50 is real. For a shotgun you will have to spare more money. About $5 that is. And if you wish to have an extra gun there are Mossberg packages of M16 replica and a pistol for the price tag on about $8. Compare that to no less than $100 for paintball marker. Needless to say these cheap airsoft guns are plastic and are not the supreme quality however, you will have the ability to play a few games and see if you want it or not.
Now, there are expensive supreme quality airsoft pistols, rifles, automatic machine guns and even long range snipers. Yes the will cost you more than $100 and might even head to above $1000 but they’re for players that live airsoft, breath airsoft and the only thing that they desire from the week is for this to get rid of for them to have a nice battle weekend. Well, I am one particular guys but we do not care how much your gun costs. We will still play with you if you come to one of our airsoft fields.
