2 other noob questions

-whats the major difference between .12 and .2? My buddy bought a crapload of .12s and they seem ok for what we use them for at the moment which is just fucking around in the back yard or whatever

-2nd question. I bought a shitty little Crosman pistol at CT and I think it has too much backspin on it but it doesn't seem to have an adjustable hop up. It goes straight for about 20 feet then just flies straight up. Is there a simple fix to this? Is there some easy shit I can do to this "gun" to get a bit more power out of it when I'm sitting in the back yard shooting cans?

The heavier the bb, the more accurate, the less affected by wind, by imperfections, and you can potentially get more range depending on your gun's setup because the heavier mass will have more forward momentum.

Nobody who actually plays airsoft seriously outdoors uses .12s since they don't shoot straight and just fly off in random directions. .12s will be okay in some CQB indoor situations.

+1 to that. Before I got armored gloves my fingernails seemed to get smoked an awful lot. That just has a pain associated to it I would rather not revisit. But, given that, or one in the junk... I'd take the fingernail.

Yeah I only found one place in town that sells .2s and they're only $10 more for the 5000 box so I guess its worth it

Wal-Mart sells .2s They are those Cyberwhatever biodegradeable ones that don't really biodegrade but the price is decent and they are polished enough to fly okay.

the worst shot = tip of your wang.
the best shot = in the googles. TICK! Hit with no pain.

Unless you have a tightbore. Then they jam your barrel. They aren't very polished at all.

can't say that I have ever experienced that in airsoft but a good set of BDU's should help deflect those shots.

worst shot I have ever had was up my right nostril... damn BB curved just right. I actually had to farmers blow the thing out lol.

Lucky it was when I first started and we were just messing around with .12g. Would not want to take a .25g at 320fps up the nose. that sting......

You could do a neat "magic" trick... Watch the BB as it appears from my mouth.. You know like snorting a piece of floss up your nose and pulling it back and forth. Nothing like a minty fresh nose!

if I sneeze and BB's come out of my nose, does that mean I got airsoft on the brain?

One of the biggest problems with masks is that you can't get a good cheek weld with them at all. Now softer solutions like balaclavas or neoprene masks take care of that problem, but they have their own problems, mainly they're hot as hell. Personally I don't bother. No one in my group would purposely aim for the face and protecting against the occasonal hit isn't worth the inconvience of a mask.

Gloves on the other hand are definitely a good investment. Not only do they protect against bb hits but if you take a spill they'll protect your palms as well.

Kneepads are also a good investment. When you suddenly start taking fire, it's great to be able to drop to your knees behind the nearest cover without worrying about what's underneath you.
