I've become more and more interested in airsoft over the times.
I hate the whining noise they make but the gas rifles are orgasmic sounding.


Anyways I'm really really really contemplating this but I don't want to spend money on the gear and I don't want to waste a day with the rentals.
But I still want to waste money on it.

Please help me find that paintball spark again.

sometimes, we make choices that aren't that "cool" but you HAVE to enjoy what you do... Do not let us as a paintball community influence you to stick with something that you just do not enjoy..

Just remember...

YOLO!!!

I enjoy paintball, but I also enjoy the "cool" look of airsoft.

Do both.

Play Scenario Paintball when you can, and play Airsoft to fill in that Gap... Tons of people do this.

Originally my idea until I realized paintball is closer than airsoft.

But I'm going to try and play both.

Yeah.

But that's kind of what's turning me off of paintball.

Well see when you think of airsoft you think of that.
When I think of airsoft I see this


But on a regular basis.

I think I'll stick around paintball for awhile.

If you like airsoft and want to try it, then, by all means, do so.
If anything, consider it a guilty pleasure. Everybody is allowed one of those (For instance, I like My Little Pony and singing karaoke while sober).

Why are you asking us to tell you what you enjoy? Choose for yourself.

Pointless thread is pointless.

I enjoy paintball because it's faster than airsoft, much more speed, what I don't enjoy is the non-realism.

What I like about airsoft is the realism, what I don't like is everything else.

And yes I have looked into magfed but the thing is that with the faster markers out there I feel outgunned (like I do with pump) and can't enjoy playing.

Well then you are not as good as you think then.


I have great fun whit my T8.1 but that is because I know where people are most of the time and I know how to snap shoot.

I do. I have a Quest. What I'm trying to say is that the quest doesn't have that milsim feel.


Also yes the I4 is apparently highly appreciated in airsoft, as well as save phace (ew)

I've had my share of airsoft guns over the years but have never played.

The reason?


I would go hardcore milsim. Standard cap mags, gas blowback guns, plate-carrier vest and cammies, all or nothing, otherwise I don't see the point...

The problem with this is the people shooting AEGs with 300 round mags that wind up. An M4 is not a SAW, a SAW is a SAW...


The way around it is to play with people I know. I don't know any people (or enough people) into airsoft.

Adding to the problem is the fact that the only fields around here that allow airsoft play only run it one day a month.



Overall, it's just not worth it for me. I'd rather just play paintball. Not milsim enough so who really cares about trying to be authentic with gear and guns, there's more product support and availability, the scenario games still fulfill my inner soldier, and I can play it any day I want at any of the several local fields.





I still would like to play airsoft, as long as I could go full milsim with it and not have to face people with those lame pray-n-spray machines...


I don't have any of my GBB guns anymore, but I think i might get one just so I can shoot in the house and in the back yard. Trigger time is trigger time, but .45 acp is expensive and IMPOSSIBLE to find right now.
GBB 1911 FTW!

Honestly paintball was not my first choice. Airsoft was. However for me, it's either full out milsim (I'm talking $1000-1500) or not at all. Plus none of my friends play airsoft. So I picked up a 98c and now I enjoy paintball.

Not to mention I get to show off my "battle wounds" to the ladies. They think I'm hardcore :)

I kid, the ladies don't think I'm hardcore ;-;

I can be a bit of a smartass and even an a-hole. Please bear with me.
