Yes, in fact it is better to bring a paintball mask because of the large lens and additional face protection. Paintball masks are near impossible to break with air soft, because they are designed to take paintballs, which have much more force than an airsoft pellet. However an airsoft mask will shatter if it is hit by paintballs.
Yes, and it is highly recommended to wear airsoft glasses or a paintball mask whilst using airsoft equipment.
Airsoft players generally use shop safety goggles, shooters glasses or motocross goggles. If you want a full face protection option for a child I would suggest going to your local paintball store or Walmart and purchase a basic paintball mask. Basic masks run $20-$30
No, they will break and you will be injured.
Paintball lenses are rated much higher then airsoft lenses are. However your grill (the part over your nose and mouth) might have slots and holes that an airsoft pellet can get through.
Paintball padding can be used to airsoft armor.
The Airsoft mask is predominantly used for protection when playing paintball. However it would be wise to choose the model carefully as some versions seem to be less effective according to reviews online.
Paintball hurts MUCH more than airsoft. The reason that Paintball hurts more than Airsoft is because the speed of the paintball is faster and the mass is also larger. Take an Airsoft BB and a paintball and look at the difference in size. Now, when you figure that Paintball markers have much greater speed than an Airsoft gun, you will find that Paintball will and should hurt more.
Paintball gun. You can see where you hit your target. I disagree, if you are looking for a more realistic looking weopon then use an airsoft gun
Airsoft just surpassed paintball in popularity.
Airsoft uses a plastic pellet. Paintball uses a ball field with paint.
