View Full Version : My most recent purchase...

Jan 20, 2004, 10:27 PM
This weekend, I purchased my first airsoft gun, I did not know what I was getting myself into. So I purchased a rather cheap and simple one. I am having such a blast (no pun) with this gun. I already ordered an electric desert eagle. The model I got is a spring loaded, USP with laser site.

What type of gun is that exactly?

the company that makes it is HF, i dunno what it is called, but it is modeled after the USP.

Airsoft: Paintballing except with hard plastic pellets. Does as much damage as a paintball does, just people are more attracted to it because the guns are much more realistic.

Airsoft gun: a gun that shoots PVC pellets or painballs.

USP: A type of gun by Heckler and Koch. It comes in many different models. There is a USP in the popular FPS Counter Strike.

I believe Airsoft was first introduced in Japan as a cheaper alternative to paintball. A few manufactuers paint the flash suppressors orange/red to distinguish in public that the weapon is not real for obvious reasons.

Yamaha RX-1300 AV Reciever.

I know it's a few years old, however It's brand new, and I got it a great deal.

I personally prefer Lazer Tag, because you can't acccidentally lose an eye. However, I've never played airsoft, or paintball for that matter. I'm sure it's a lot of fun, but I'd rather not get hit by anything, really.

Be safe, and have fun!

the thing I want to know is: what happened to your furry friend ? Does he have a burnt spot on his eye or did he permanently lose it ? :eek:

i have an airsoft MP5-SD, and used to have a airsoft Sig p228, but the airsoft looked too much like my real Sig P228, so i got rid of that.

airsoft is fun, but nothing beats a good 50 cal.
