Anybody played Airsoft??

Just wondering if anybody around here has actually played a game of organized airsoft before and what your experience has been.

Overheard a paintball vs. airsoft conversation at the field the other day and was curious to get other people's opinions.

Played alot of airsoft, and at first years ago it was more honorable then paintball at the time more like paintball 15 years ago then it was 5 years ago. But it seems lately they cheat just as bad as anybody you see in paintball now, and it is harder to prove then in paintball.

I'm not a fan, it's only really good in close quarters in my opinion. Single hits are really hard to feel at range, and I didn't get the same rush as in paintball.

I have the same feelings. I've never played a big organized game. Only me and less than 10 friends. We would usually play at night out in the woods or during the summer in our houses (while the rents were at work ). Those house games were crazy! They were fun, but it was silly fun. I felt like we were just playing around, acting like rambo or something haha. Paintball gives me a real rush and a sense of achievement. The first time I played paintball I had so much adrenaline running through me that I was still shaking the next day in excitement. I never felt that, or the same satisfaction of getting an elimination in air soft.

if you watch the games of airsoft online . all everyone does is try to snipe . in paintball at least most people run up and use tactics . nothing funnier than seeing a guy wiht a mp5 airsoft rifle with a sniper scope

The only advantages to airsoft are that the guns are cool and the ammo is dirt cheap. Airsoft's entertainment value is well below a Nerf battle, IMO.

People are much more honorable in airsoft. Well, maybe that's because they don't shoot you once, but 300 time...

And the airsoft guys are hardcore. Way way way too serious for me. Just image the heavy mil-sim'ers in paintball, and multiply that by 50. It kinda deters the fun.

I have said it before and I will say it again... there are no chicks in airsoft.

Just a bunch of boys playing guns.
