WHAT IS AIRSOFT?

Airsoft is a competitive team shooting sport in which players eliminate opposing players with airsoft guns which shoot 6mm round plastic pellets commonly known as “BBs.” A little-known fact is Airsoft was first played in the 1970s in Japan.

Although it is somewhat painful when hit by one of these BB’s, they cannot kill or cause serious bodily harm.

Even though airsoft guns are considered or perceived as “toy guns”, safety precautions will always be top priority at HEXERA.

 Most airsoft guns are the exact copies of their “real steel” counter parts. Some airsoft manufacturers even have licensing agreements with the original firearm manufactures in order to look as realistic as possible.

There are many types of airsoft guns that use different power sources the most common are electric guns or AEGs (Automatic Electric Guns), when hit by one of these guns they can only cause minor welts on the skin. That is why during game play protective gear must be worn to avoid serious injuries, especially around the eyes. Also, thick protective outfits are also recommended to be worn such as sweatshirts and some thick trousers can protect the skin from being directly hit.
