Nope, airsoft. It's much cooler when the guns look and feel real. I have a group that has full BDU and equipment. And all the weapons are competition grade guns. They'll shoot 100 yards! ( they hurt like crazy too )

I wear full digital jungle camo with magnum combat boots. Blackhawk gear ( belts, vests ect... ) As far as weaponry I use a KJW beretta. It's made of nothing but metal ( aluminum ). Looks, feels, and nearly shoots like the real thing. 6 magazines, all independantly gas charged. It runs on propane and silicone. Its an amazing weapon. and then a remington 700 look alike spring. which is 400 FPS, and the pistol is 375. Its awsome though because each magazine holds gas, not the gun, and when you fire, its LOUD, and the slide reacts. And when it's empty, the slide sticks back. it's operation is identical to the real thing. I know this because I own the real thing. it's rediculous! The rest of my team uses AK 47s. All battery which I am against. ( bad luck with'em )

Yeah gas seems the way to go.......plus it sounds incredibly real....I use to have an airsoft glock model 18 that ran on that green gas stuff and it was frightening......great sport though

I played on a team back in the days when paintball first started. Had a Pirahna KP-3 with scope and an SMG bulldog. The only let us set our fps at no more than 300. I do take pride in having the most consecutive rounds with the most opposer hits and taking none myself...28 rounds 131 hits. That all ended when speed ball came into play! :lol: Was alot of fun. Peace on ya!

yea i play airsoft too, it is pretty sweet if you have quality stuff. I you use kmart guns then it sucks. i use a UTG Warhark AK which is a good recreational gun. We don't get too serious when we play, but I would love to go all out if we played more often.

I used to be on a paintball team, Ambush, but we eventually stopped playing cause it costs sooo much to play. $20 to play if u bring ur own case of $40 paintballs, or u can buy a case for $40 and play for free. Doing that about three times a month adds up.
