What you Need to Know About Airsoft Guns

Aug 17, 2007
When it comes to toy guns, they are really no toys at all. Some can cause some serious harm and you should be careful with any type of airsoft gun, BB gun or paintball gun. Airsoft guns are made to resemble the likeness of a real gun. You should be careful with the way you present yourself with an Airsoft gun. They can easily be mistaken for a real gun and you may end up getting hurt and whatnot because of the way you acted while holding the gun. An airsoft gun was made not to have the intention on serious hurting someone. They cannot kill anyone, but they will cause the skin to bleed or break open if it hits the flesh.

Airsoft guns came from Japan. Guns are illegal in the country of Japan and the people wanted to have a gun of their own, so the airsoft gun as developed. It is legal in other countries like the United States, Indonesia, and Hong Kong. They are easily mistaken for a real gun and because of that fact; United States placed a law that any airsoft gun had to have an orange colored tip so that people can tell if it is a real gun or a pellet gun. Even though pellet guns aren't real guns, remember, pellet guns can still hurt, so you should never shoot at another person.

When it comes to airsoft guns you will want to educate yourself on the types of guns and the type of BBs that you can get for them. The standard pellet sizes for airsoft guns are 6mm. There are several different types of BB pellets. The normal pellet for a standard airsoft gun is plastic and a .2g BB and a plastic .25g BB. You can get other weights for them too. The reason why you will find heavier pellets is so that your accuracy is better. The heavier the pellet the better shot you can have.

Even though you have accuracy, you have to consider that the weight of your pellet will determine the distance it can go. The heavier the pellet the less distance it will travel. This is your basic physics.

Heavy pellets lose velocity compared to the lighter ones. You should try a few weights and different BBs to find out what pellet is best for you and your airsoft gun. You need to find a pellet that you are comfortable with. The sizes that you have to choose from at .12g, .20g, .23g, .25g, .30g, .36g, .39g, and 43g. The higher weight you have the better it will be for outdoor use, but take in consideration the travel distance and wind before shooting your gun. You can find out more information of the pellets when you go to a store to purchase them or online.
