What is airsoft?

Airsoft is a modern combat sport or recreational hobby in which participants eliminate opponents by hitting each other with spherical airsoft pellets commonly know as bb’s, launched from airsoft replica guns, Participants typically employ the use of varying types of airsoft replica’s designed as replicas of real firearms, tactical gear, and accessories used by modern military and police organisations. 



Airsoft has its roots in late- 1970’s Japan where firearms were difficult or impossible to obtain due to local laws and people sought a legal alternative to owning actual firearms. The vast majority of airsoft guns, accessories, and after market upgrade parts are also manufactured in east Asian regions such as Japan, china, Hong Kong and Taiwan, Many new, more affordable, Chinese guns are dominating the airsoft market. They are competing against more reliable established companies like G&G, Classic Army, ICS, and Tokyo Marui.
