How to get started in Airsoft?

 

You'll need to obviously get a gun, and the following:

-An AEG gun.-A battery that suits the 

gun. These come in different sizes for different guns and our site specifies the size for each gun use list.-Large pack of 0.2g or 0.25g BBs. These go fast when you're shooting full auto at 12 rounds per second, so order plenty if you plan to play a lot.-A BB Bottle to make loading easier.-A battery charger. AEGs use rechargeable batteries which you need to charge. Get a charger to do the job.-A discharger. Discharging semi-depleted batteries will extend battery life. Some of our chargers have built-in dischargers-Canister of silicone spray lubricant to keep moving parts well lubricated for durability 


 To start on gas guns, you'll need to obviously get a gun, and the following:

-A gas powered gun.-Large pack of 0.2g or 0.25g BBs-Canister of propellant gas, either HFC134a or HFC22, depending on the gun. The recommended type is specified on our site, beside each gun.-A BB bottle is a good idea since it makes loading BBs much easier 


 To start on hand-cocking spring guns or bolt rifles, you will need the following:

-A spring gun or bolt rifle. You can opt for an entry level spring gun or a high end bolt rifle.-Large pack of 0.2g or 0.25g BBs-Canister of silicone spray lubricant to keep moving parts well lubricated for durability-A BB bottle is a good idea since it makes loading BBs much easier 


 To start on electric blowbacks, you will need the following:

-An EBB gun. Shop here.-Large pack of 0.2g or 0.25g BBs-Canister of silicone spray lubricant to keep moving parts well lubricated for durability-4 AAA alkaline batteries 

What kind of airsoft gun should I get?

We at TFA would recommend a Elite Force M4 CQB AEG. Either buy them from our Pro Shop location or through Evike.com

Airsoft vs Paintball

 Airsoft is a popular combat simulation game where participants are eliminated when hit by pellets launched from guns that resemble real firearms. In paintball participants try to hit each other with paintballs launched from a special paintball marker/gun. While airsoft is cheaper and provides a more realistic warfare experience, paintball is more popular, more organized and has larger events. 


Airosft is so much cheaper for gear and ammo, than paintball.
