  1. So you think airsoft guns aren't very dangerous? JUst og on this site, and click on the Video of a TV being mashed... it's insane

    I hope I never have to face one of those in a bb fight..... :bag:
     
  2. Wow...I don't think I'll ever be playing if one of those are in play! We just use gas pistols and AEGs. Last time we played I got tagged in the cheek with a Glock and that left a fat welt for a day or so...I can't begin to imagine what that thing your do.
     
  3. Hehe, I have my Marui FAMAS and a Crosman CO2 pistol, and they do the job very well...but that thing! I looked it up, and it fires .88gram 6mm steel BBs at 600FPS.....I mean, that's more powerful than my air rifle, with a heavier projectile....I reckon that;d kill someone, never mind bruise someone....what is the point?!

    I've never heard of steel BBs for airsoft. Steel has too much mass, and would most likely seriously injure or kill someone, especially at 600 FPS.

    I read your post about you shooting people who egg your house btw. Thats just a step closer to getting airsoft banned. Please don't do that.

    Now I know what I want for Christmas!!! ;) ;) ;)


    MAN!!! That must be a small fortune in BB's.
     
  6. It seems that they used metal BBs, not the airsoft ones in that video.

    PS: Go paintball!

    i shot one of those... not metal bbs though... airsoft is fine...most fields dont allow faster then 400fps and plastic bbs

    You have to wear mask... i knew a guy who didnt and he has a hole in his lip now...


    airsoft is a great game...

    Cheers

    Big airsoft fan here. I enjoy having my morning cup of coffee while shooting my full auto AEGs in the basement... naked. I can't do that with my real steel!

  16. Well, me and my friends got held up by a lunatic(also a friend) with my MP5 single action BB gun last night at a sleep over. That things is the power of the FAMAS, and he was shooting us.....fortunately, I had my FAMAS with me.....needless to say I wiped the floor iwth him.....small cut on the head and a cut arm.... silly I know, but it was his choice to start blasting me...

  20. I've got several of those el-cheapo spring action airsoft pistols at home, and some of my freinds and I get together and leave welts on each other with them.

    Rock on
