Gas Powered Air Soft Gun: The Edge in Air Soft Competition


”Shoot,” it often connotes a person taking aim at a target or a person taking pictures or an individual seeing guns in their heads. Just as long as the guns are not of the lethal variety, but those only for recreation and competition, it’s all right.

An AEG has to look for outlets to plug in their chargers so they can recharge their batteries it case they get drained during an intense game.

And how do Gas Airsoft guns measure up against Spring Airsoft guns? Gas-powered air soft guns are more powerful and can fire 60 shots in one click beating the spring powered air soft gun by 59 shots.

If there’s any setback that using this type of airsoft gun may bring, it’s the possibility that the gas may cause damage to the gun such as breakage to some of its parts; but this will only happen if the other type of gas, the “red gas,” is used. This is just a minor setback when thinking about the advantages of having a gas-powered air soft gun. Staunch environmentalists oppose such guns because they use CFC propellants that damage the earth’s ozone layer.


Those words may connote a double meaning. If one is using CFC propellants, what must be one thinking right now? One can give up the hobby and save the environment or better just look for other types of air soft gun.

So think it over, and after deciding to shoot, enjoy the game.
