What's the point of Paintball? Use a paintball once then you have to go buy more. At least with Airsoft you can reuse your ammo

PAINTBALL, it is better in every single aspect except for the cost, alot of times if you shoot somebody with an airsoft gun they wont get out because you have no proof that you hit them. im on a novice team for paintball beeechees

Airsoft is cheaper by alot...and if you have ppl not wearing real baggy clothing you are almost always going to feel the bb.

At least with paintball you won't have a cop draw his gun on you beacuse the airsoft pistol you are waving around looks like the real thing.  One of my buddies on the Barrington PD told me about a kid who was showing his airsoft pistol to his friend in a car and a lady saw it and called the Police because it looked so real.  the cop drew his sidearm beacuse the airsoft pistol was identical to the real thing.  he gave the kid and the kids father a good and fair verbal ass whooping.  thank you no, I'd rather not have this happen to me.

Paintball. It's a mission to get enough people together to have a good game. Last time I tried I got about 30-40 people, which is excellent, but by the time the actual day drew by heaps of people flaked - I was left with about six. I had to cancel.

Personally, I prefer airsoft. They look more real, they shoot more accurately and they're less expensive.

Paintball is too many joules and yet the balls don't go far enough like airsoft. Also most airsoft rifles look realistic and are modeled after real weapons unlike paintball.

Here's my favorite rifle. I've had tons of fully automatic powerful AEGs but nothing ever came close to the precision and feel of this spring M14.

Here's the old gear I used to play with. I miss the jacket a lot. You guys know where I can find a similar jacket?

Getting something you're comfortable with is the different between a burst of 400FPS 6mm plastic bbs to your face or lighting him up.

That's a paintball gun. A Milsig to be precise.

Paintball trumps airsoft for me. I don't care for speedball, but Scenario games are unlike anything else. Maybe I'll post some pics in a bit.

Holy shit I agree with warman. Yeah paintball is the shit! Love it, scenario or speedball, doesn't matter because they're both awesome.

Played painball once... it was too expensive and wasnt that great. However, wtf is the point in airsoft if you run around getting shot with small plastic balls if you're all padded up? Only way to have fun there is that everyone would have to be wearing a mankini or something, so that there is actual motive to avoid getting shot.

Paintball is expensive as shit in Australia. Fucking gov lulz.

Shifty: airsoft is for bitches who can't join the military but want to look hardcore. In paintball, the markers that look more like real guns, the shittier they are.
