Also one thing that will increase your accuracy is the weight of your BB. I think BBB makes a .28 which alot of people seem to be finding the perfect blend of distance, punching power, and accuracy.
Unlike paintball a bush will not provide you with cover in air soft. I used to play paintball and you could hide behind a bloody twig and watch paint break before it hit you. In air soft I have mowed down a bush to get to someone lol. *well not the entire bush but you get my point*
I have shot MT and MB BBs. I personaly see no difference in my Stock TM, prob cause its stock... so I shoot Madbull now as they are cheaper. Metal tech seems to be the most expensive out there.
Well TBH even in paintball, if you hide behind a bush and I am shooting sustained full auto at 30 balls per sec I can tell you that one ball will hit you. That is another thing that I am wondering, what is the usual common practice in Airsoft regarding fire power?
I am accustom in Milsim paintball of having a loader of 40 balls on my MP7 (to replicate the real capacity of an extended MP7 mag) and 120 balls (Loader included) on me at all times. We have a restriction on ammo (it is limited to 150 except for one support in each time that can have up to 500)
Because I have been watching only one Airsoft skirmish so far and people were all shooting full auto with high caps...it was ugly from a Milsim point of view. I hope that this is not common practice, because if it is... well it is far for from being Milsim. Even low caps have twice the ammount of ammo that you can have in a real mag. Is it because you don't really feel anything and you have to nail the opponent with at least 10-15 BB before they declare a hit, that people were going full auto like that?
Thanks again for your help and input guys!
