Maybe it's a silly question...but why not use paintball???
Because paintball sux.

Paintball is about running around dressed in clown.

Airsoft is more about recreating military engagement.

Because it's about as lame and interesting as having to clean your buddy's car after you've been sick in it.

Let’s make things clear,
1) We like having a competitive sport where we can hunt and shoot things, and
2) We enjoy the real-steelish look and feel of Airsoft, as opposed to the ugly, odd-looking paintball guns.

Maybe because this is an airsoft channel, and I think you should read up about it before suggesting paintball...

We prefer airsoft because of the extreme realism of the guns, and no paint.

This being said, I love airguns. That SVD looks nice, where is it available from?

Oh... no need to post in HUGE BLUE LETTERS, please.

To the author- did you just make a screen name to advertise the forum? It seems your only posts are in this thread, and that blue font means your end is nigh.

Holy smokes, give peace a chance...I just joined up today. Until today, I thought airsoft was dead and buried in Canada due our retarded laws....except for the clear plastic junk you see at Canadian Tire. I'm kind of bewildered by what's available.

No need to be so aggressive.....I come virtually unarmed.

So why are airguns called airguns and not the american term BB guns. Anyways we've been a little harsh and i'm sorry but most of the forum members are aware of Airguns and such I think you got flammed mainly due to the giantassed bold blue fonts, and the constant pictures. If we were interested we would have joined by now. Anyways you don't see us luring people into airsoft in your forums. AKA don't sell crack where the crack isn't wanted...my made up slang...

Sure I'd give peace a chance but then again you can't have peace until all your enemies are dead...

Airsoft is far from dead. Take a look at the galleries and some of the team webpages.. I assure you that it's not only alive and well.

It combines an interest in real firearms (which I assume you have), with the ability to actually shoot people with them, and not end up in jail (which I assume is ALSO something you can identify with). Airguns for most of us remove one of those aspects and so aren't as interesting. And painball.. well paintball is just messy.

Now we know where to send those that are interested in using pellet guns and get confused by the concept of airsoft.

Some of the pellet guns look nice and all, but I like to shoot things that have the opportunity to shoot back (even if my favourite tactic is ambushing people and shooting them before they can shoot me).
