Regardless of a paintball being designed to blow apart upon impact, for that split second its still going to have more pressure than any airsoft bb ever will. Theres a reason you dont see bunkers filled with air to the max where seams are ready to burst, they leave them under filled so that when a paintball or bb hits the bunker will give allowing pressure to be spread instead of popping. Think of it this way, Take a bouncy castle, lots of little kids...prone to popping because its always filled with air to the max, let air out of the castle kids bounce all day, no leaks no pops.

Can I ask you a serious question? How much sand can you fit in your vagina?

Not quite. A smaller projectile always has a more focused pressure. I've seen BB's stick into skin, but not paintballs. Paintballs can break skin though. Larger projectiles also carry more joules, which is why paintball tends to be less fps than airsoft. But BB's actually break apart often on impact anyways.

But I will never play airsoft in a paintball field, simply because of the paint mess. Not that there is anything wrong with paintballers, but I find the sports as about as close as football and rugby. Same basic concept or sport type. But way different methodology, in their purist forms anyways.

I also have to agree that I've seen more honor in airsoft than paintball, as far as calling hits go. Which is weird when you think about it, with the targets physically covered in paint and all. But when it gets bad in airsoft, it can be really bad.

What part of your previous post spoke of biodegrading? What I quoted is your reference to BB hardness. Sure bios and regular BB's degrade and silica's don't but they are inert.

Have you never seen an airsoft gun chop BB's? If what you say was 100% true 'BB's are all designed not to crush', then you're wrong, which is why I said not entirely true.

Yes they are harder than paintballs but if BB's were as hard as you imply, you'd start seeing more broken nozzles, tappets, and stripped pistons whenever someone got a miss feed. Miss feeds happen and it's a ton better for a guns internals to crush and chop a BB over putting resistance against everything wanting to make it go.

I dont like paintball fields that allow airsoft, I hate sharing the field... It feels like sharing the gym in grade school with the romper room kids... I just want to play a full court game but instead im forced to play a half court game while they toss paint everywhere

The major difference in between airsoft fields and paintball fields is made by our ''nice friends'' (speedballers). Light gun, acurate, 25bps, running and sliding... So commercial paintball field are specially made for (speedballing). But they aren't always like in picture of the 4th post, with balloons and soccer grass. I do play Mil-sim paintball in a indoor far-west style field, but sometime I feel like I'm tire of playing with (speedballers) that why I'm slowly transiting to airsoft.

When he guide spring in my vsr hop-up died, so it double fed a bit. I've found the only reliable way to break a silica bb... is to shoot it with... another silica bb...

No speedball/xball league allows over 15bps ramp, and Ive never seen a paintball gun that could keep up with an airsoft build meant for speed. Doesnt really bother me as much in airsoft, because with the greater variety of roles and guns it just adds to everything.

People do play paintball just like airsofters do, there are milsimers and such as well who play in wooded areas and feilds.

One thing I miss about paintball is the middle ground where it wasnt about weilding fancy space dildo's shooting 15bps or having to be extremely milsim, I loved the part where it was just me and my gun(pump action, I could outsnap speedballers and pop woodsballers before they saw me), and I could do anything I wanted with it.

Back on topic paintball feilds usually have more hard cover, allowing you to stand up more than I do when I play airsoft. In airsoft I tend to use natural cover a lot more.

When I started playing paintball the field we used was heavily wooded with a couple small wooden structures, and a few tire piles. But airsoft events I find to be larger. Also fields that contain all types of play area within the game zone. Heavily wooded areas, up and down terrain, large to small buildings, ...ect. You could run either way with either game though. It's not like one field or another wouldn't work for either sport. I am a firm believer in not playing airsoft in an area that paintball is played in though. No one wants paint on their gear. I dropped paintball because airsoft has a wider variety of gear and playability. I've played paintball in a number of different field and game types. Also a high end airsoft gun is more accurate at a distance than a paintball gun. There are some amazing paintball guns out there, but they aren't common. The games themselves didn't feel the same either. Speedball right upto full blown milsim seems more exciting and tactical with airsoft. Just my opinion though.
