A couple days ago i measured 100 feet with a tape measure and it dident seem very far at all to be a max range. If about 100 feet is the max range what is the accuracy, like a pop can every time or a body sized target most of the time? and if people have made hits at 300 what is the % of the time you would hit? I hope this isent posted somewhere else, sorry if it is. Thanks
Most airsoft guns can hit a man-sized target at 100 feet more often than not in ideal conditions. In wind, your maximum effective range gets cut down significantly. There are times when "fluke" shots will hit someone 300 feet out, but I don't think there are any airsoft guns out there that can do it normally. An upgraded long-barrel (M16 length or longer) gun with tightbore shooting heavy rounds (.28+) can probably hit a man-sized target reliably up to 150, and possibly up to 200 or more with acceptable odds (again, in ideal conditions).

"Someone in a Prius tried to race me at a stop sign the other day. I couldn't believe it. I had him for the first 100 feet or so but I can only walk so fast."
