Airsoft guns are replica guns which are often used in sports. They are designed to fire what most people know as BB’s. These guns have low muzzle energy ratings, which basically means they have less penetrability and stopping power than a real gun. Overall, these guns are safe for competitive sports events, as well as recreation, as long as protective gear is worn.
Airsoft guns are normally categorized in two groups, namely mechanical (where the gun is manually cocked), or automatic (where the gun is operated by a valve-controlled release of a compressed gas).
The replicas are designed to resemble the real gun very closely, although some states require that here is a distinct orange tip to tell the difference.
