Comparing BB Guns and Airsoft Guns

November 23rd, 2022

Depending on how old you are, you may be familiar with the old Red Ryder BB guns. If not, you should definitely know about Daisy, which has been around for a long time and is one of the most well known brands of BB guns in existence. But it is important to remember that a BB gun is not the same thing as an airsoft gun. There are many characteristics that separate these two products from each other, and by being familiar with them, you can make an informed decision. This choice is extremely important, as the nature of the product determines the extent to which you can use it.

With a BB gun, you are essentially limited to target practice activities. This includes shooting actual targets, or things like cans and fruit. The power you get from a pellet gun is much greater than that of an airsoft gun, and this power is increased even further by the fact that you use metal BBs with these types of guns. Airsoft guns utilize plastic BBs, and if a human was hit with one, all it would produce is a short stinging sensation. If you get shot with a BB gun, the round might actually lodge itself inside you, which would require a trip to the hospital.

The point of going over this is to accentuate the fact that you cannot use pellet guns in airsoft games. That is why airsoft guns are used for the sport of airsoft; they do not cause permanent damage or even moderate damage, while the consequences of BB guns can be quite severe. Because there is so much more versatility with an airsoft gun, I highly suggest that you go with this product, rather than one that cannot do as much and causes more carnage.

Introduction to Types of Airsoft Guns

April 13th, 2022

Airsoft is a game rapidly increasing in popularity in many countries across the world. The game uses airsoft guns, which are replicas of real guns, in this game. They use plastic pellets as ammunition instead of the regular bullets. If you are unfamiliar with this game but are curious to learn more, it is essential that you have an idea about these gadgets before you jump into buying one. Depending on their mechanism, these guns fall into three broad categories.

Electric airsoft gun

Electric airsoft guns are perhaps most popular among many enthusiasts. These guns have contributed in a large way to the explosive growth of this sport throughout the world. They come with an electric motor with a battery inside to power it. There are gears inside the gun which are turned by the motor, provoking the compress and release of the piston. This results in propulsion of the plastic pellets through the gun barrel. These fully automated guns have a rapid fire feature, giving them an added appeal. The price range of electric airsoft guns varies, from plastic made ones at around $10-20, going up to steel guns of a few hundred dollars.

Gas airsoft gun

Another method of operating this is by way of compressed gas. The gas type use gas filled cylinders or inbuilt magazines with liquidated gas. Upon pressing the trigger, the liquid is released, which evaporates into gas and builds pressure, propelling the pellets at high speed out of the barrel. These guns, however, cannot be used in cold weather conditions since the drop in temperature can affect the gun’s performance. These are the most expensive of the family, at several hundred dollars and are largely the domain of enthusiasts.

Spring airsoft gun

Spring guns or ‘springers’, as they are commonly known, are the last of the general types of airsoft guns. In fact, the earliest types used the spring mechanism to operate. As the name suggests, a spring is used to propel the pellets. The spring is activated with a backward cock action which sets the spring ready. This has to be repeated for each shot, making rapid fire impossible. The simplicity of their design is what makes them popular among enthusiasts and they are also the most inexpensive of the family. These guns can be owned for as little as $20-25. The enthusiasts can check this type of gun and have fun.
