If I'm outdoors, I have my gun tuned to 380 and use .28 bbs. The reason I use a higher velocities is so the other players can feel their hits. The effective range gained between 340fps and 380fps is minimal, but the kinetic energy between the two when using .28's is enough for me to shoot at 380.

Is it just me or has anyone else noticed that many of the higher end airsoft guns tend to have quite low fps? What is the reasoning behind this?

Also, what is considered a decent FPS for an airsoft gun?

I have 3 airsoft guns now, and they all shoot 400 fps plus, and for plinking pop cans, I wouldn't really want any less.

I haven't ever been shot in a game with one of these guns, so I don't exactly know if that is too high to play airsoft games with.

So what do you guys, who play airsoft think, what is the optimal FPS to be acurate and have decent range and still have your buddies talk to you after the game?

I am interested in hearing your thoughts on this topic.
