Getting into airsoft, some questions (ammo?)

okay so ive played paintball before bought a gun but dont play alot because of the price of ammo and such, i played airsoft with a buddy a couple months ago and recently some buddys expressed some intrest, what were going to do is all go out and buy some pistols to start off nothing amazing just the 20 dollar ones

possibly off ebay, also i found some cheap ammo on ebay but one of the things im wondering about is the ammo weight

most of the ammo ive seen is .2 grams 6mm i found some other ammo also 6mm but its .12 grams im wondering if there is any big difference

i would imagine that the lighter ammo has a higher muzzle velocity and packs less impact but has less range while the heavier goes farther

the .12 is substancially cheaper so im just wondering if theres any major difference

Heavier bb's are more stable and have better penetration when it comes to woodland games. Also, if you will buy high end AEGs/GBBs stay away from .12 bbs. Those things can damage internals and will most likely cause jams. Use only

Just curious, where were you playing, and what were you wearing for eye protection?

hey Imperium, if you are over 18 come on out to a game. After seeing what is used and the correct way to use it, I am sure alot of your questions will be answered.

If you are interested drop me a note and I can give you all the details. FYI we are strictly 18 years and over.

Cheers!!

Not the best idea, probably the worst. Best case scenario, someone naively reports you to the cops out of fear, newspaper runs a story of airsoft fear-mongering story, further endangering our sport. Worst case, you get shot by a jumpy cop, and airsoft risks getting actually banned an illegal.

If you really want to get into this sport, help preserve it, and only play on private land/spaces (not your backyard), where noone can see you, or it's completely expected (like a paintball course).
