Airsoft

Photo of large group of paintball players

Airsoft is a competitive team shooting sport in which players simulate real military situations and try to eliminate opposing players with plastic BBs. These BB’s are shot via replica air weapons called airsoft guns. Although very similar to paintball in concept and gameplay, airsoft pellets do not typically leave visible markings on their target, and hits are not always apparent. 

Airsoft games mock a military simulation using replicas of real world gear. This is a bit different than paintball and paintball lite requiring different guns, different gear and different type ammo. 

Gameplay is changed through out the day and varies between games, military situations and organized scenarios.

Does it hurt when you get hit?

The plastic BBs are apox 6mm in size and the ability to “feel” the BB depends on several factors:

  1. where you get hit
  2. do you have protected gear in that spot
  3. what distance were you hit.

Most of the time the gear protects you and you may feel it but most likely will not hurt worse that a rubberband snapping you. Your required eye goggles and face mask protect your eyes and face. 

Do I have to buy BBs from Gladiator?

The good news for you—-as new owners we have recently changed our policy and will no longer require you to purchase our BB’s.  AND…. the even better news is we have started carrying your favorite brands of BB’s and will have a full stock when you need to replenish your supplies! Just visit the PRO SHOP if you run low and we can get you all set up!
