Airsoft Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between airsoft and paintball?

Airsoft is a completely different game that uses battery or gas powered guns to shoot tiny plastic (biodegradable) BB’s at one another. The BB’s do not leave a mark on impact, so this game is played using the honor system (if you get shot, call yourself out). Airsoft has it’s own area at our facility to keep the paintballers and airsofters separate.
