Airsoft originated in Japan in the early 1980’s as the Japanese answer to the American craze of Paintball. Within the past 20 years, the activity of Airsoft has become recognized as one of Asia and Europe’s most exciting adventure activities. More recently, Airsoft has made its way to the United States and continues to gain increased popularity. Just like Paintball, Airsoft can be enjoyed by anybody regardless of size, age or gender. The only requirement is a desire for adventure and a good competitive spirit!





Airsoft, like Paintball, is a combination of the childhood games “tag” and “hide & seek,” but is much more challenging and sophisticated. Although there are many different game formats, typically a group of players will divide into two teams to play “capture the flag.” The object of the game is to go out and capture the other team’s flag while protecting your own. While you are trying to capture a flag, you also try to eliminate opposing players by tagging them with an Airsoft BB expelled from a special airgun called an "Airsoft Gun." Games run from 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the size of the field and the number of players.  Between games, players take a break to check their equipment, get more BBs and have a snack or soda while they share stories about the thrills of victory and the usually funny agonies of defeat. Win or lose, everyone has a good time and there's usually the next game waiting for you.





Airsoft Guns are low powered airguns that are 1:1 scale models of modern weapons. The most popular models are the electric ones known as “Automatic Electric Guns.” These guns are powered by special re-chargeable batteries which last between 800-1000 shots. Most AEGs fire in both semi-automatic and full-automatic modes. Stock AEGs will shoot accurately up to 50 yards. There are also Airsoft Guns available that are gas powered or spring powered. An Airsoft BB is an extremely lightweight 6mm pellet made of plastic or biodegradable material. These BBs weigh in at an average of .20 to .25 grams and are fired from Airsoft Guns at low speeds ranging from 100-300 feet per second. This is fast enough to feel, yet slow enough not to hurt. Airsoft BBs leave no mark, so honesty is key to the game.





For safety, Airsoft players must always wear goggles specifically designed for Airsoft or Paintball to protect their eyes. Goggles must be worn during the game and at all times when a person is in an area where shooting is permitted, such as the target range. Airsoft is a very safe activity as long as safety rules are followed.  Referees on the field enforce safety and game rules. No physical contact is permitted in the game, and players are ejected from the game or the play site for breaking safety or playing rules. Fields have  boundaries, and a player who steps outside a field’s boundary is eliminated from that game.





Airsoft has many advantages over Paintball. They include:

  • BB hits are less painful and aren’t messy.

  • BBs cost less than paintballs.

  • No messy weapon jams or air leaks

  • More realistic looking weapons

  • More accurate weapons

  • Weapons are magazine fed, so no hoppers in the way of sights.

  • Weapons have both semi & full-auto firing modes.

  • Weapons are battery powered, so no bulky air tanks and no air to pay for.




Airsoft is a activity that can be enjoyed by people from all professions and lifestyles. It is an activity where females and males compete equally, and where age is not dominated by youth. Like a game of chess, being able to think quickly and decisively is what makes you a star in Airsoft. Intelligence and determination, not merely strength, speed or agility, are key to success in the game.  Airsoft is a character-building activity. Players learn about teamwork, gain self-confidence and develop leadership abilities while having fun and getting welcome stress-relief. Many organizations are finding the benefits of having their members participate in Airsoft games.  Airsoft is an exciting activity, and above all Airsoft is fun! It's a chance to shake off your day-to-day responsibilities and rekindle your spirit of adventure. When the adrenaline starts pumping, you can't help but love the thrill of the game!
