Airsoft guns, sounds like it could be the latest technology for the air brushing artist. Or perhaps, the latest in ear piercing mechanisms? No and No. Airsoft guns are the latest in toy gun replicas or bb guns. I know I just mad a lot of Airsoft gun Owners cringe when I said Toy guns, because some of these pieces are down right works of art. Not to mention they can really pack some power and have serious feet per second ranges. But for the most part these bb guns are sold largely on the Toy market and most of the product are in the Cheap Airsoft Gun category.
Airsoft was born in Japan in the 1980’s due largely impart to real firearms being illegal. The crafty Japanese created replicas of real firearms and Airsoft Guns hit the market. Spreading fast on the Asian toy and hobby market it didn’t take long hit the USA and UK with a bang in the 1990’s. Since then Airsoft has grown leaps and bounds as a legitimate sport and has spawned new Airsoft War Camps and competition sites all over the United States, Canada, U.K. and Australia.
Backyard target practice is still probably the widest spread use of Airsoft guns. Just pull out a few targets and a few airsoft guns in the backyard at your next Fantasy Football party and see what happens. You can bet you’ll know where your friends are hanging out between their picks. (true story) However, the heavily enthused Airsoft Players are spending the real dollars and going all out on the sport. It’s not uncommon for these players to be toting 3,4, $500 guns to their battles. They are gathering by the hundreds at paintball type camps to play out Military style campaigns and combat battles to capture the enemies flag.
So, no they are not the latest in Air Brush technology but something so much cooler. Something that can truly stand the test of time. A simple way to own some of the most historic military weapons of all time even if it is a mere replica. Thanks for stopping by!
