Tips & tricks How to airsoft ?

What is airsoft anyway? Airsoft is a "sport" focusing on military themes. There are many specific focuses, ranging from sport shooting, a very believable exercise in military procedures, to the most popular flag fighting. Players use very faithful replicas of guns that shoot bbs during the game. This hobby has seen an extreme increase in popularity in the last 10 years, and this is mainly due to younger generations growing up playing computer games. Airsoft is most commonly practiced outdoors, but nowadays there are indoor arenas that make it a comfortable hobby to indulge in all year round.
