    Airsoft is a shooting sport in which participants eliminate opponents by hitting each other with 6mm spherical non-metallic pellets launched via replica weapons called airsoft guns. Airsoft is comparable to paintball, with some key differences being: <br/> <br/>Unlike paintballs, airsoft pellets do not mark their target and hits are not always visibly apparent. Airsoft pellets may leave red marks or "welts" to their target however rare that might be. The airsoft relies on an honor system in which it is the duty of the person who has been hit to call themselves out regardless of whether or not anyone saw it happen. <br/> <br/>Most airsoft guns are magazine-fed with some, especially pistols, having co2 canisters or rechargable pressure vessels, and tend to much more closely replicate real guns. This makes them more popular especially for military simulation and historical reenactments. <br/> <br/>For casual players airsoft is much cheaper to try than paintball, with manual-cocking pistols costing as little as $5 a piece and airsoft pellets costing as little as half a cent per round. <br/> <br/>Gameplay varies in style and composition but often range from short-term skirmishes, organized scenarios, C.Q.B. (Close Quarters Battle), field, military simulations (MilSim) or historical reenactments. They are played in some indoor courses, and outdoor (fields). Combat situations on the battlefield may involve the use of military tactics to achieve objectives set in each game. Participants may attempt to emulate the tactical equipment and accessories used by modern military and police organizations. <br/> <br/>A game is normally kept safe by a trained professional and the weapons are usually powered by gas or various types of batteries. A gun's power is checked through a chronograph and usually measured in feet per second. Different game sites allow a different amount of FPS but different countries also have a set FPS and a gun shooting over the required FPS can confiscated or not allowed to be used on airsoft sites; for instance, a sniper would usually have a higher FPS than a submachine gun, since a sniper needs a minimum engagement range to reduce the danger from being hit at close range by a powerful weapon. <br/> <br/>The minimum safe level of gear required to participate in most games includes a pair of Ballistic eye wear ANSI Z87.1 (impact-rated) goggles to protect participants' eyes. Traditional prescription glasses and sunglasses, or goggles not designed specifically for use with airsoft or paintball marker, may break or shatter upon being struck, causing injury to the eye. Because shattered teeth and chipped ears have been reported, it is also advisable to cover your face, neck, and ears with a suitable level of protection. The most common injuries are sprained ankles so boots are highly recommended.
