Airsoft guns are imitation guns that shoot anywhere from 6-11 mm plastic ball projectiles that are propelled forward by compressed air by the means of manual cocking of a spring, electric revolution of gears that pull back the spring, or compressed Gas. These airsoft guns can shoot anywhere from 200-600 FPS (feet per second) they are used for war reenactment similar to paintball. although game rules can vary, but usually just pertain to two teams shooting enemies and figuring out strategies. Airsoft guns Look extremely realistic and are modeled after real guns. The US requirement is that 1/4 of an inch of the flash hider (tip) must be a blazing orange. airsoft gas pistols and rifles most of the time function very similar to their real firearm models.
