Default Which Is Better? Airsoft or Paintball

Airsoft.

Why I think Airsoft is better: Airsoft is more tactical, you can get more pain, you get to dress up cool, and it's extremely fun. There's a million more reasons I could say on why I like Airsoft better, but I only said a few. Here is an example: Last week (almost), Airsoft had one of it's biggest events in USA, Lion Claw 5. With over 100 people, it was HUGE. They got to go in tanks, hummers (no, not the expensive kind, real hummers :) ), helicopters, and alot more. They also played for a couple of days, having GOALS (unlike paintball), and being actually like the army. Also having guns more powerfull than most paintball guns and shoot faster, too. That's just an example. Airsoft to me is way more fun, realistic, and it's the closest to the army I'm going to get right now, untill I'm 18 and join the Marine Corps. The guns look more realistic, and you don't have to run around a SMALL 20 ft. wide by 20 ft. long course, and you don't have to carry around a huge nos tank. The guns have more detail, and make you feel like your in the army, unlike paintball, once again. It's also MUCH CHEAPER.

Why Paintball ISN'T better: "Hey Tim, want to go spend 100$ for 2,000 paintballs that are going to get WASTED in 1 hour?" "Sure, oh wait, but it's 10$ to fill my huge *** nos tank ONCE, and I have to re-fill it every couple of hours." "Sure no problem, Tim. But let me go get my 60$ jersy and 150$ mask and 40$ pants and my 400$ gun!" "Ok lets go to our small field and play paintball with no goals except mark our enemies."

^^^ Exactly my point. Paintball is fun and all, but a huge waste of money that can be spent on Airsoft...

AIRSOFT IS BETTER

What do you think?

I totally agree with pr0n. But it's a pity that you have to be 16 in the UK to play airsoft, whereas you only have to be 12 to play paintball. I dunno about you, but think that is quite possibly one of the dumbest laws ever.

Not when you get a SAW that shoots 700 FPS!

I have a CA M15A4, it's upgraded to 400 FPS. That's more than a paintball gun. If were talking about FPS, most paintball guns can only shoot 200, 300 FPS. Yes, it only hurts more because they are bigger, and harder on impact, meaning they have an inside and a hard shell that explodes.

But the actual energy of a BB is probably less.

Interesting fact: A 9mm handgun bullet carries about the same total energy as a well thrown baseball, but the energy is concentrated into a smaller projectile with higher velocity, making it able to kill.

Airsoft is quite fun though, and it's pretty realistic.

I kind of stopped due to the fact that the people that I played with stopped playing, but I'm thinking of going back.

It's not as fun if you can't shoot people though, I mean I got bored of shooting inanimate objects.

Yeah, it just seems so boring. You want to play a real game of airsoft where you can just shoot people that actually move.

Well it kind of is, except there are much more diffrent scenarios than CS will ever give to you.

Too bad CS doesn't have CTF, that's usually fun on Airsoft.

Drunken, airsoft isn't about, shooting targets. Anyone who wastes money on BB's for shooting targets is a dousche bag. It's called recon, CQB, HR. They just had LION CLAW 5!!!! A huge as$ event. If you're interested tell me! I can help you with gear and everything.
