you would be owned and fast.... you might like handguns but honestly you would be in bad shape if you did that.

You would get smoked dude. Ask anyone here who has a handgun, they'll tell you that they almost never use them in a game. Their about 95% look cool factor about 5% gameable. A handgun is probably the most expensive piece of uniform

A side arm is just a back up during out door games. One that might just get you through the game though. I've had a few times where I've had to go to the side arm and get a couple kills because it wasn't fast enough to grab another mag. But ya get an AEG.

I dunno, My and BP's 226's seemed torack up quite a few hits at splatters all winter..

For outdoor not so much, it really depends where you play.

True. For indoor games I could see them being useful, but for outdoor games where engagments continually happen at 40+ feet...

If you have a good quality handgun, and you have the skill to use it well, you can have fun. It's a big IF.

But, apart from CQB and compared to guys with AEGs in other situations, you're outgunned.

For me I find the biggest limitation of a GBB on the field is the lack of ammo and gas and is weather dependent (at least in the spring and fall, not so much in summer). If you get a good gun like a TM Hi Capa 5.1 or P226, range is not that big an issue. I've played a few field games where my AEG goes down with only a pistol left and have not had any issues getting kills.

With a pistol though you just can't camp at the end of the field, you have to be aggressive. If you're a newbie at airsoft though it's not recommended though.

Honestly, as much as your "outgunned" in a woodlands environment, they also have huge advantages. A lot of players that will have HUGE sucess at a field like FR often sport only pistols, hell even just springers! Small, light, manuverable, you can be a force to be reckoned with even with a TM1911 springer in an urbanized environment, but yeah, it really does depend where you play...

Goldman, even so, apart from the environment there's also some skill involved.

Handguns have their place, but they are not the easyest thing to handle and aim properly under stress. If longer ranges are involved, long guns rule.

I suspect you know how to handle a handgun, not questioning that, but it's not an easy skill to learn for anyone starting off.

Hey Grey, I think you missed that he's already point all this out. . . the environment thing.

Not necessarily, I held the POW camp with a USP Springer once. And did a fair job with just my Hi-cappa when I ran out of ammo a couple times for my Armalite last season. And this season I took three pistols with me and no primary, it was fun. Mag changers are a bitching with both hands occupied, but the added ammo count makes up for that.

Also, my stock Hi-cappa (on propane) has about the same range and accuracy as a stock Armalites , which is fantastic and why I want many more mags for it.

Like Goldman said, you can dominate with a pistol depending the enviroment and how you play.
