    Airsoft is a hobby/sport/activity that originated in Japan. They are air powered bb guns. They shoot a 6 mm bb. They are replica styled guns. And they are sweet as heck.

    Most are called AEG's. Or Airsoft Electric Gun (I think). These work by using an electric motor that moves a piston and compresses a spring. The piston then springs forward, compressin the air behind the bb and firing out out the gun. Very cool stuff.

    When I used to collect them I think a company called "Marui" were the big name.
    I got a few of them, glock, baretta etc.

    Has there been much change on the way they fire? I remember them introducing hop-up a while back.

    The last one I purchased was a gas powered pistol which was cool, looked like some kind of colt if I can remember right.

    Edit- Found it it was this one:

    Airsoft is the fastest growing game in the US. Here in NC we hold games allmost every weekend. we have 60 to 100 up to 250 players at games. but you ask what is airsoft? easyest way is to say grown men playing war. also it is used by the police as a training aid. somone ask how fast do the guns shoot up to 600 fps. most are about 400 fps. they can have a rate of fire of up to 1000 BBs pre min. The guns are full 1/1 scale and alot of them are 1/1 weight and you can get them with 1/1 rate of fire. mags for the guns can hold up to 2500 BBs on a SAW down to a 10 shot mag on a 1911. M-4 can have 30 round mags up to a Hi Cap mag with 500 BBs. I hope this helps you with what you wanted to know.
