Many Airsoft guns are based on real weapons.
Airsoft is a fun and challenging hobby in which players use replica weapons that shoot plastic pellets. The sport began in Japan, where people wanted realistic weapons but could not own firearms due to strict gun laws. It has since spread to the west and is used in military and police training exercises as well as for recreation. Airsoft guns come in many shapes and sizes, but many players opt for fully automatic guns due to their high rate of fire and relative accuracy. While most automatic Airsoft weapons have an electric motor, some use CO2 gas to fire the pellets.
