A military simulation game whereby players use 1:1 scale replicas of real firearms that fire 6mm plastic spherical pellets. Airsofts try and look like actual weapons - but they're not.
Basically, Airsoft is for gun owner wannabees who either can't afford a real gun, aren't allowed to own firearms in their country (Japan) or can't pass the criminal background check or are too young to own the real thing. Sad really.
Mike: "Hey look bro! I just got a new Airsoft Sig 229!
Me: "What? Look at my REAL Sig 229! Want to have a duel? No? Thought not."
Mike: "You had to rub that in my face didn't you?"
Me: "You can't have a gun because you got busted with pot, moron. Who says it's a harmless drug?"
