At 10 yrs old how do they get rifles? Must be Crappy Tire specials.

Airsoft is cheap compared to paintball just the start up is the first hump that you need to get over.

Paintball
Gun
$150-2000 easy depends on what type your looking for

Hopper
$10

Clothing
$150+

Mags
None unless you have
the fancy markers

Webbing
Yes they use webbing
too at least the guys
I know
$200+

CO2/Compressed Air

$20
And Masks are the same for both course also depends on how fancy you want to get.

Ammo
$45/500 rds now you can see where you save money paint costs are rediculous


Airsoft

Rifle
$400-2000 easy

Clothing
$150+

Mags
Sky's the limit, though they generally start around $30+ per

Webbing
$200+/-

Batteries
$30+

Chargers
$40+

Ammo
$20-25/ 5000

Take note the only thing you generally need to play either game is gun, ammo, mags if airsoft, hopper for paintball, charger/batteries/co2/compressed, air tank, goggles, ammo. That is bare bones. I might have missed some things but a lot of the expensive stuff is optional, just depends on how deep your pockets are, but in the giant scheme of things and the long run airsoft is cheaper.

For example playing Airsoft I can play an entire month for $60 thats my field fees, and ammo for a month. Playing every weekend, or if I decide to play 2 days on the weekend thats only $100 per month.

Paintball when I played for a team cost me $75 plus for field fee and ammo per day. I'd spend about $250 plus per month depending on what we were playin bush ball a little cheaper, speed ball big time costs. Hence paintball sucks.
