Airsoft Adventure Never Stops!

Plenty of Action and Adventure for Backyard Target Shooters, On-line Mercenaries and Outdoor Weekend Warriors.
 
You are crouched behind a pile of rubble, cradling a replica Kalashnikov AK-47 in your arms. Your heart beats a little faster as you wait for a band of enemy insurgents to attack. It all seems so real, but are you:
 
A. In a simulated battle at your favorite game park?
 
B. In a virtual on-line war zone, engaged in a multi-player mission?
 
C. In your own backyard? 
 
If you are among the growing ranks of Airsoft enthusiasts, it could be any of the above. As a sport, airsoft is exploding in popularity because in backyards, on-line battle zones and game parks everywhere, the action is always on.
 
According to Justin Sigler of Soft Air USA, the leading manufacturer of airsoft guns, targets and accessories, “Airsoft allows boys and girls to be Wild Bill Hickok or Annie Oakley while shooting at targets in their own backyard, and adventure-addicted teens or adults to play out their wildest Ethan Hunt or Lara Croft fantasies.”
 
Generally considered far less dangerous than air-powered BB guns and far less expensive than paintball guns, orange-tipped airsoft guns are spring-powered replicas of real weapons used by players to shoot plastic BBs at targets or in mission-based scenarios with other players in open fields or paintball parks.
 
“Super-soft” airsoft pistols for beginners propel high-visibility pink 0.12-gram plastic BBs at 120 – 140 feet-per-second (fps) versus 1,000 fps from conventional BB guns. Soft Air USA is the exclusive licensee of a wide range of authentic, incredibly durable replica pistols, machine guns and shot guns, as well as tactical assault and sniper rifles, including full-metal auto-electric guns (AEGs) capable of firing 0.25-gram plastic BBs, specially powder-coated for game play, at speeds up to 500 fps. Each Soft Air gun is packaged with a rubberized sticky target and with the fps power rating clearly marked.
 
Once you discover your ideal weapon, visit Dunham’s and choose one of the authentic spring-powered replicas from Soft Air. Dunham’s offers a wide selection of weapons, kits, targets, scopes, laser sights and accessories.
 
Then use the strategies and tactics you developed during on-line play to dominate the field at your local game park. Many paintball parks are quickly converting to airsoft play. In addition to open spaces with bunkers and trenches, some include bombed out cities, jungle fields or western towns. Some host airsoft competitions during which participants enter a specially constructed maze and shoot at targets along the way. Best times determine winners in different age categories. Protective eyewear is always recommended for target shooting and game play. Traditional prescription glasses, sunglasses, or goggles not designed specifically for airsoft or paintball play may break or shatter in game play and cause possible eye damage.
 
“No other sport,” says Sigler, “offers so much action and adventure on so many different levels. Whether you are a backyard target shooter, an on-line mercenary or an outdoor weekend warrior, airsoft is the sport for you.”
 
So, what are you waiting for? Dunham’s has everything you need to ensure you go into every airsoft battle armed with the best.

Advancements in Soft Air Technology

For better or worse, kids have long been fascinated with guns, be it playing make-believe war, imagining themselves as cowboys or practicing to one day be a police officer. Now, with the invention of soft air guns, which have become increasingly popular since their inception in the 1970s, kids can act out their fantasies in a safe and fun way.

A Novel Idea

Invented in Japan in the 1970s, where firearms were illegal but interest in them was still high, soft air guns were created as a way to satiate public interest and allow citizens to experiment with guns in a safe way.

Originally spring powered guns that shot small plastic pellets, soft air guns have since evolved to include gas and electric powered guns as well, all working on the same general principle of compressed gas expanding to force pellets down the barrel of the gun.

Especially popular among 10 to 18 year-old boys, soft air guns today are manufactured into near-exact replicas of real guns. Soft air license company Soft Air USA®, offers guns that resemble popular firearms like those of Smith & Wesson, Kalashnikov, Colt and Beretta.

Greater Power, More Accuracy

In addition to its products’ physical attributes, Soft Air USA also prides itself on producing firearms with high power and accuracy. According to Soft Air USA, “People want it to shoot straight and shoot hard.”

Given such, the guns that are produced today are of a higher quality than the ones developed nearly 40 years ago. One way in which Soft Air USA has improved the quality of their guns is the addition of a Bax system, which is an adjustable mechanism that holds the gun’s barrel in place to make the shot more accurate. Soft Air USA ensures that their guns can hit a target the size of a quarter within ranges varying from 25 to 50 feet away, depending on the type of gun being used.

Fun, Safe and Easy

The soft air industry often finds itself competing with that of BBs and paintballs. However, soft air guns often appeal to kids, or at least parents, because they are notably safer and easier to use than BB or paintball guns.  Soft air guns are safer than BBs, given that they shoot plastic pellets, whereas BBs typically shoot lead pellets. There is little risk of getting injured when using soft air firearms because the pellets travel too slowly and are too light to break the skin.  Protective eyewear, however, is necessary to avoid the dreaded shooting-your-eye-out injury.

Soft air guns also end up being cheaper and easier to use than paintball guns, which typically require some form of makeshift battlefield, a large space to run around in, targets and padding. With soft air guns, one can simply step out into the backyard for some casual target practice.

Soft Air Extras

For those who do wish to get more involved with their soft air guns and make a game of it, additional soft air accessories do exist, such safety goggles, face masks, vests, holsters, targets, reusable pellets and gloves.

Let ‘Em Play

So whether they want to play battlefield, train for the police academy or simply shoot at a few empty soda cans, by using soft air guns kids of all ages can do so safely without sacrificing the look, power and accuracy of a real gun.
