Default Airsoft?

Do any of you sweeties play airsoft? You know, where grown *** men shoot at each other with bb guns? I think it is fun, and didn't know if anyone else played. I will post pics of my gear tomorrow if anyone else plays.

I played airsoft when I was a kid, but we only had pistols so we could only hit each other inside 15 yards. I prefer paintball.

Ahhhh yes airsoft. P90 replica ftw. Lol. Pretty fun to play with a bunch of people at an abandoned/unoccupied at the time construction site. Gotta love it. Lol. The more fps the better, especially close combat. Hahah

My younger brother has a few guns. He's put some money into upgrading them too. I think one is an M4 with a red/green dot sight, upgraded barrel, Lipo battery, some kind of battery-driven giant ammo hopper. All I know is that it shoots fast in both ways. It's not something I'd want to be on the receiving end of, even 50 feet away.

No FPS Limit on games I play so I use this beast. It will destroy a snapple bottle in one hit at 20 yards.
850FPS almost 100yrd effective range.
I run .45's

LOL I like both. I played a little about 6 years ago, then one of my buddies got me back into it. I have a Tokyo Mauri M4. I did some upgrades, and it still seems to be superior to the more modern equipment out there. I shoot 440 fps on .25 with it. Anyways, I would hate to be on the bad end of that sniper. I got shot my a 650 fps one at about 40 yards. What a bitch, worse than ant paintball shot ever. I have a cyma glock too, and I am pretty sure at the range I usually end up at, I could just about win with it since I just charge people. So I have about decided that a sniper and my glock with 100 round mags would reign supreme. How much do you have into that beast sniper x808? If I could build one for less than 4-500 I would be golden.

Edit for Jeff: We usually play at tactical paintball near san antonio, I got tossed in the slammer due to a dumbassed buddy with a paint gun out my window, he was 17 and I was 18 so I took all of the garbage since I was 2 months older, and I was an adult and he wasn't. (I am still not that growed up lol.) So yeah, I have not owned a paintball gun since then, but I did have a tippman 98 with a flatline barrel when those were hotish.

I played until I was like 14 or so. I have an old Tokyo Marui MP5 SD6 lying around and a KSC Mac-10.

Paintball was always more my sport:

We always played Assassin when I was in school (usually with suction cup dart guns). The only rules were that you could not go into someone's house. Other than that it was open season.

I once shot my brother in between the eyes leaving a perfectly round bleeding bruise. When he shot back at me he missed and hit my parents LCD computer monitor, that also left a mark. We stopped playing in the house for a while.

So, I've played quite a bit of paintball (woods, speedball, and urban assault), and I've been to an indoor lasertag arena once (that was funner than I thought it would be) but I had absolutely no idea that airsoft was actually played outside of people's backyards.

How does this work, precisely? I mean, with most of the little toy pistols I've seen sitting on department store shelves, I can't even imagine that you'd know when you'd been hit.

*more fun

You know when you've been hit, in my experience it feels like a bee sting depending on how close you are to you're assailant.

But how is the scoring done?

In lasertag, a central server is wirelessly connected to all players' weapons and receivers. When you are hit, the computer does some combination of incrementing a scorecounter, disabling your weapon for some period of time, and / or giving you an aural and visual alert that you have been hit.

In paintball, it's pretty damned obvious when you are hit, because you now have paint all over you. There is some small degree of honor-system involved (particularly in woodsball), however referees are scattered about the field to inspect players for evidence of death and mediate hit / no-hit disputes. If you are hit (or declared to be hit), you are dead and you exit the playfield. (In longer games, you may be permitted to respawn after some period of time.)

In airsoft, I can't quite see how scorekeeping / moderating is achieved, unless you simply count on every single player to A: notice that they've been hit, and B: be truthful.

Mostly the honor system I guess, I've never played competitively. Also, you can see a air soft pellet when you shoot it, so you can call out the person being shot.

And if they don't call themselves out I'll shoot out one of their teeth.
