A lot of the times when I keep in touch with people that are not so knowledgeable about the Airsoft game I’m told that it’s a very expensive sport. This misconception mainly originates from the similarity of Airsoft and Paintball. In paintball you not merely are bound to make use of gas powered metal guns and rifles however the paintballs will also be expensive consumables.
With this article I want to clear the items a bit. Airsoft is one of the very affordable game I can think of which includes team work and shooting.
The so called BBs that you shoot with are small plastic pellets with spherical form. The most expensive package I really could find is 3000 for about $35. The regular and widely used airsoft bbs in an offer of 6000 cost $10. Compare that to 2000 paintballs for $70 from the very best ones and 2000 for $30 for the regulars. When it comes to consumables Airsoft is quite cheap.
Initially I visited an airsoft war game a couple of years back I bought a cheap airsoft gun which was on sale. I paid $2 at a retail store. They’d some cheap airsoft shotguns too.
This is in time when the overall game was not so popular. Now you will find a cheap airsoft gun on the market with a cost below $1. Trust in me or not, a cost of $0.25 or $0.50 is real. For a shotgun you must spare more money. About $5 that is. And if you want to have a spare gun there are packages MOSSBERG 500 SHOTGUN of M16 replica and a pistol for the buying price of about $8. Compare that to at the least $100 for paintball marker. Of course these cheap airsoft guns are plastic and are not the top quality nevertheless, you will be able to play a couple of games and see if you prefer it or not.
Now, there are expensive top quality airsoft pistols, rifles, automatic machine guns and even long range snipers. Yes the will be more expensive than $100 and might even visit above $1000 but they’re for players that live airsoft, breath airsoft and the thing that they need from the week is because of it to end for them to like a nice battle weekend. Well, I’m some of those guys but we don’t care just how much your gun costs. We will still play with you in the event that you come to 1 of our airsoft fields.
