AirSoft was conceptualized as a new approach in BB gun application. In place of the utilitarian air gun designed for hunting, AirSoft was created with a purely recreational application in mind. It was also created for people who enjoy target practice or indoor plinking with friends who are not concerned about the high power hunting application of a BB or pellet gun but just want to have fun. This is exactly where AirSoft fits in.

These types of games require teamwork, cooperation and the spirit of fair play. It has been integrated into many paintball sport facilities and playing arenas across the country.
