Guide to Airsoft


Introduction: Guide to Airsoft

In this instructable I will teach you the basics of airsofting!


Step 1: Get a Gun & Ammo!

This is the most important step!!!

1. Get a rifle, shotgun, or machine gun ranging from 250-350 fps unless you are a sniper, in witch case the fps should be above 400.

2. Get a secondary weapon such as a pistol or mini automatic ranging from 225-300 fps. ALWAYS HAVE IT READY TO USE!!!

3. Get a pourable ammo container with at least 2000 bbs. If you have a non-pourable container use a drinking bottle of some sort.

Step 2: Clothes & Safety Gear

Basically the most important thing is goggles/mask. I recomment a mask to protect your whole face. I play night matches with my friends so i just wear a black spring coat & dark jeans. When I play in a forest i wear camo. Thats all you need. Have a holster for your pistol too.

Step 3: Practice Makes Perfect!

After you get your equipment, you have to practice your dodging and shooting skills.

For shooting: Set up some paper targets and practice on getting near the center of the target. If you can ace that then you will ace airsofting!

For dodging: Have your friend throw soft object slowly at you and dodge them. Keep increasing the speed of the flying objects and that should help you a lot.

Step 4: Extras

When you are ready to have a war or battle, you can also take grenades, smoke grenades, etc. You can also be like everyone and cheat. Sneak some party poppers or firecrackers in so you can use them to distract other players.

If you want to know how to make the grenades and smoke grenades, leave a comment and i'll make some instructables!

Thanks! Bye!

    do not use itching powder if you dont want to cheat.

    even though that works well it is going to smell bad and it pollutes the earth a better option but slightly less effective is on a windy day use flour with itching powder still annoys your friends.

    Remember wear lots of clothing so itching powder does not get on you..................

     Dont ping pong balls give out poisonous fumes when burnt?

    @gasatack117 they r very good guns (maybe except the defender)

    awesome defender(full ato) also shoots 115 fps shotgun I think 330 fps pistol(stinger p9 275

    smoke balls work best if you need to escape

    defender should be backup to shotgun

    Have you actually used a chronograph to measure your FPS? because many company's lie about their fps , I bet slydark is right about how low of FPS your guns have. Many local stores like walmart, dunhams, and dicks sporting goods lie ALOT. If you truly want a good gun that will last you through the years, get a Tokyo Marui, Classic Army, Echo1, or JG gun. Some reliable sites are also
