Airsoft, (1) noun: a device that shoots plastic BBs and resembles a firearm. Receivers are made either of metal or plastic, but are opaque.
(2) verb: the activity of using an airsoft gun, involving at least 2 players, usually on opposite sides hunting each other, somewhat like paintball.

Clearsoft, noun: an airsoft gun with a clear receiver from a reputable brand. The only difference between an airsoft gun and a clearsoft is the receiver. Everything else is exactly the same inside.

Crapsoft, noun (also softair): a toy sold is major stores (Canadian Tire, Walmart, etc). The majority of the gun is clear, but that is not always the case. Internal quality is dubious, and the device will generally break quickly. Velocity and accuracy are also dubious.

WTF?

They are guns that fire airsoft pellets therefore they are airsoft guns..

Why do they need a designation?

But if you insist it should be something that when said with a sneer and a hint of derision clearly indicates the contempt expressed.

There's no need to look down upon the clear receivered guns, and I don't think very many of us do.

I've never heard you speak up about crapsoft or clearsoft before, but they were guns firing airsoft pellets...

No comtempt implied at all. Just a way to distinguish between non-clear-receivered guns and these and clearsoft-crapsoft.
And I think we may have a winner: Cansoft.

Well, I'll always be referring to it as clearsoft. Not necessarily in a negative tone, but it will always be clearsoft. Cause that's what it is.

It is typical of Canadians to rename something if it has some negative connotations for anybody though.

Hey, I happen to like the sound of CanSoft! For the patriots here, it's awesome to feel that airsoft manufacturers are making guns just for us.

Where can I go for additional information on this subject?
