A guide for newbies: What is Airsoft? Airsoft is a hobby imitating real war situations. Airsoft implies plastic guns and real military gear and clothing. There are four main variations of airsoft: military simulations (with certain scenarios), target shooting, military training, and competitive gaming. Airsoft is somewhat similar to paintball, but in airsoft the players use plastic shooting devices (with the velocity of less than 180 m/s), and small plastic bullets (most often, about 6 mm in diameter). These technical characteristics are trusted to be safe enough for playing. Airsoft pistols and gear are for sale at specialized shops; presently, airsoft pistols and accessories are commonly bought at internet shops. Airsoft was first created in Japan in the 1970's. It was marketed as the first way to use guns for recreational purpouses only. Currently, the gaming techniques of airsoft have changed in two directions: standardization and diversity. On the one hand, the airsoft bullets have become unified in their sizes. Alternatively, the airsoft guns rifles have become very variable in shape and powering (airsoft shooting devices can be spring-powered, gas-powered, and AEG — battery-powered). With the course of time, some certain safety recommendations have emerged. Most importantly, the gamer must wear special shooting glasses (common sunglasses not specifically designed for airsoft won't do, because they may shatter resulting in eye injury). As for other parts of body, they won't get injured if the pillet is shot from the distance of at least 10 feet. Face masks are also of use in airsoft as they give protection for the rest of the face including such fragile bodyparts as, e.g. Teeth. However, face masks are believed to reduce visibility. In most countries, airsoft is considered legal. Allthough in some places, e.g. The states of New Jersey and Michigan solely allowed to practice play airsoft on private property. The most severe restrictions are in the Philippines where for some time airsoft had been totally restricted.
