Airsoft…that’s like Paintball, right? I hear this all the time when I tell someone that I played airsoft on the weekend or that I just got in a new airsoft gun.
Sometimes I just ask if they are into first-person shooter video games and if they say “yes”, I’ve got an easy response. “Then sure, the same as Battlefield is just like Call of Duty”. After the hailstorm of “No way” CoD vs BF or BF vs CoD comments, and they catch their breath, I make the connection to what — for me — is the main difference. This is obviously a generalization but serves to clarify what I enjoy about airsoft.
