Step 5: what FPS you will need

the FPS (feet per second) is one of the most important things in airsoft. The FPS is how far your bbs will go every second.
runners: use pistols with around 200 fps
guards: use shotguns with aroud 250-310 fps
snipers: use rifles with 400+ fps

<p>I like Crossman the best. Have you guys seen. <a href="http://www.bestairsoftgunhq.com" rel="nofollow">www.bestairsoftgunhq.com</a>, it has some good airsoft info. </p>
First picture is a dragonov, not an AK.
<p>Dragunovs are based on AKs....although they are not made by Kalashnikov. </p><p>But you are right, Dragunovs are not AKs.</p>
dragonov's are ak's it's just not an ak-47.<br>

There is so much wrong here it makes me cringe, don't give advice if you don't know about it yourself.
Dude i was 13..
i think you may be misinterpreting fps. yes it means feet per second but it only plays a small role in range, and thats what you truly want range.i am a&nbsp;juggernaut&nbsp;and i use a&nbsp;Thompson&nbsp;with 460 fps and a range of&nbsp;a bought&nbsp;70 yards.&nbsp;believe&nbsp;me im an&nbsp;experienced&nbsp;player.
<p>i think range depends on fps hugely, are you saying that with more speed the bullet isn't necessarily going to go further?</p>
<p>im a sniper with 400 fps with a 4 * 15 scope</p>
#1 TIP dont buy at walmart and if you do. Dont excpect it to last
<p>Hey guys,</p><p>I recently got into airsoft and it's a great sport. I just baught a new g&amp;g carbine, if you don't know what they are look them up! It's a great starter gun.

Yall check out <a href="http://www.bestairsoftgunhq.com" rel="nofollow"> www.bestairsoftgunhq.com </a> it helped me review some of the airsoft guns I was looking for on Amazon.</p><p>Cheers.</p>
www.evike.com<br>Look it up it'll help you
what about assault rifles? all you have is shotties snipers and pistols, WE NEED ASAULT RIFLES!
uhh yeah, just read the yellow box around it :p
fail. hahaha
best game evar
A-freakin'-men, brotha!
lol, i have to agree
woot! <br>
We dig trenches and put sniper emplacements in them (amongst other things).
Does your stock actually work?
just asking why does the terrorist have flares on his shoulder?
i agree with the tree house idea but what happens if u get swarmed, run out of ammo and start raiding your fort? <br>
with only one window, someone could just aim on that window and you couldnt move
see it people like you who make airsoft fun , when im sniper i sit about 50 feet from a fort and shoot the noobs off the ladder trying to get in :D its very fun
200 fps is wimpy, my spring pistols are about 300fps, spring shotguns 320-350 fps, but you got snipers right.
no your spingers arnt that power full sorry but no
nope, they may well be - my pistol is 314 FPS and my shotgun could reach 400FPS with 0.12g bb's<br>i also have a spring DMR that fires at around 350 FPS, so i would check your info tbh :)<br>here to help<br><br>- DOM
Only if you buy from Wal-Mart
buddy i have a spring rifle tha shoots 500 fps its got a upgraded spring but it shoots 500 fps and all aegs use springs you just have a motor that pulls them back <br>and yes ive chronoed my rifle
No you don&quot;t not unless its a sniper. A springer might shot that out of the box but 30 shots later the spring is compressed and it might do 150fps. I've seen it again and again from people who ask me tho fix there guns for them. The spring are cheap and once they break-in they stay at about 150 fps. Before you ask i chrono the guns for the local players and use a &quot;Shooting Chrony Beta Master&quot; and a &quot;Shooting F-1 Chronograph&quot; I know the to be accurate to 3 fps with my hand loads for my 30-30 making the largest margin of error. To anyone looking to play get a aeg or a gbb pistol cheaper you can repair them yourself and there just better sorry didn't mean to burst anybody's bubble.
comepletely agree, though there are still bolt actions like im guessing maneter112 is talking about <br> <br>
yes they are sorry but yes. i've got a springer pistol that goes 307 CHRONOED and my friend has a spring sniper with no upgrades that goes 468 (also chronoed). don't be hatin on the springers.
i have two pistols a P-36 and a P-1311 and they both go 325 fps
i got 310 on mine but its a sniper
i've just got the Crosman P312 pistol, and I've had it chrono'd at 290-310 fps. So yes, springers ARE that powerful.
I agree with you. My pistol is 315 fps and my shotgun is 355. When we play tho we have pretty much just shoot each other with no winners. So the rule is no above 400 fps guns.
im also sorry to inform you that if you bought that shotgun from wal-mart it and it is smith and westley that it is not 355 fps take a close look at what they say the pistols fps is on the package and then look at the pistol... that pistol is not over 100 fps so i can guarantee that they are lying about the shotgun to
Wesson. not westley.
dosent matter fps 280-400 they still go the same distance and their still crappy guns
my M4 or M16 (cant figure out which) has around 300fps my pistol probably 290+ and my shotgun 355
yeah i have the same (almost the same) shotgun the guy shows in the pictures. the only thing different is that mine has a scope, lazer dot, and a flashlight :P&nbsp;&nbsp; its around 355 FPS and it hurts, even at 20 yards or so.<br />
Have you ever played President???
