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!

Dont wear a face mask cause you cant aim with them well gotta go Niesen out
@gasatack117 they r very good guns (maybe except the defender)
Wat do the sticky notes say?
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 trinityairsoft.com airsoftgi.com airsoftsmith.com airsoftarms.com
do you know a site to get an airsoft sniper for cheap besides hobbytron? i think the site was called hobby usa or something but i cant remember now.
WAIT! don't buy a sniper. if you want a good gun, just buy an AEG. only Jing Gong/Golden Bow, CYMA, CA, etc. not crosman... AEG's are availible for the same or higher FPS, and have full auto features. Better than snipers allthe way!
i have a really good AEG, i want a sniper just for the hell of it.
Well I wouldn't suggest getting a gun from an America business
Airsoft guns from Asia rock :D
yobwoc zasxcd4 years ago
Japanese ones... Chinese airsoft companies aren't exactly high quality. The poor guys aren't rationed enough to do it well, though, so don't blame the workers. Blame socialism.
Its called shortyUSA.com, they rock.
look for the UTG L96 shadow ops, or the Kart M700
ok thx
go to hobbytron.com
They're a pretty bad retailer FYI...
i think a good airsoft sniper thats like 80 bucks is the swiss arms m6 black eagle its really good and goes suprisingly far (whe you hop it up) try ebay or amazon
If you're still looking for a cheap sniper rifle, shortyusa.com has an m324 that shoots 425 FPS for around $100. Comes with 2 25 round magazines
sweet thx
All I know is that if you want a good quality gun, you should go to airsplat.com
Jordo CapnTac6 years ago
do NOT buy from airsplat, it is freaking horrible, bad guns and lying all around
thing 2 Jordo5 years ago
You left out kapowwe.com!
lingd6 thing 25 years ago
crosman isn't bad either!
aseaheru Jordo5 years ago
trinatyairsoft.com=top sirch result for airsoft on bing
yea airsplat lies a ton.
i have an ak47s by Echo 1... dont get this one... JG is more durable and much less expenzive with better internals... anyway the ak is terrible with durability but performs great but always go for the full stock version of anythin or a crane stock!
JG may seem more durable, but Their internals are made of plastic ( gears and all) While Echo 1 has metal internals which will last much longer. and echo 1 keeps upgrading their bushings and stuff in their original guns. I have a g36C from echo1, fires great
TjT Jordo6 years ago
I have 2 JGmp5sd5s, and have opened both up. Full metal internals.
Echo1 is just a re brand of jg's but with metal bushings and the gears in jg's are metal
you might think so, because JG and Echo 1 guns are made in the same Factory, but Echo1's quality differs quite a bit.
TjT Jordo6 years ago
actually, they usually don't lie. but they cheat. they chronograph their guns with .12 bbs to make it sound good, then when you use .2's, it isn't as fast. whatever. just some unneeded info...
slydark Jordo7 years ago
either that or they list the FPS as the FPS that the gun clocks in at with a .12 but hey, I just wish that companies would be reliable about listing accurate FPS as well listing the FPS with different bb weights. .12 .2 and .25 preferably.
