Airsoft AmmunitionHistory:

The origin of these guns originated in Japan. These equipments are designed closely to emulate real guns. Many law enforcement agencies in United States use these types of guns for training purpose.

Ballistics and Velocity

The pain a pellet from the gun causes is related to kinetic energy. This is directly proportional to its mass and square of velocity. It is important to know that doubling the velocity of pellet will quadruple its kinetic energy. The maximum effective range of these weapons is around 90m with a highly upgraded sniper rifles. Gas powered replicas function more like real firearms. It is generally agreed that 6.01-6.02 will provide highest velocity.


Many manufacturers and retailers make these types of guns as real guns so that it will help in alleviating safety. The minimum safety level to participate in these games is by wearing Ballistic eye wear goggles. Wearing sunglasses are not considered to be a safety precaution.

In short a gun is a weapon that discharges a missile at a high velocity.

Airsoft guns are replica firearms that fire spherical projectiles of different materials. Airsoft Guns Gas are designed to be non-lethal and provide realistic replicas.
