The military, when not using simunitions (chalk like paintballs used in actual firearms) , uses paintballs for training.
Air soft is better in that it is much more realistic, cheaper, and can be played in a larger variety of environments (you can exactly play paint ball in your neighborhood, can you?). However, paint ball allows for fairer game play. This can be solved by buying paint ball BB's (paint balls in BB form) which are more expensive but less expensive then real paint balls. Basically, air soft is better if you are playing with honest friends or you don't have a paint ball arena in your backyard, but if you're playing with large teams or for competition and you have the money, paint ball is the way to go.
A paintball sniper rifle can shoot father.
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
it depends on what you want to do. if you like airsoft then get an airsoft sniper. if you want a good paintball gun then DO NOT get one that looks like a military gun. in my opinion i would get a paintball gun. i would recommend $100 Azodin $250 proto rail $350 dangerous power G5 to me, these are the best starter guns. but before you buy a gun go to your local field and try it out to see if you like it.
Yes, in fact it is better to bring a paintball mask because of the large lens and additional face protection. Paintball masks are near impossible to break with air soft, because they are designed to take paintballs, which have much more force than an airsoft pellet. However an airsoft mask will shatter if it is hit by paintballs.
Kind of a vague question... Do you mean which one would win in a battle? Or which sport is better? A 100$ paintball gun would win over a 100$ airsoft gun. Which sport is better is more of an opinion, i prefer airsoft guns because the proper ones are more reliable and won't end up breaking in a month. and paint ball is not as fun
Neither is better. Some people prefer different aspects than the other: Paintball: hurts more costs more larger games more fields professional league more game types Masks needed Airsoft: hurts less costs less harder to find games generally only milsim games goggles needed Paintball guns: Milsim guns: used by military and law enforcement for training can be highly realistic and expensive Tournament guns: used by speedball tournament players: very "unrealistic" built for high speeds and accuracy Airsoft guns: increased realism with price. Still need orange tip. The concept of "realism" is a term that seems to be a key in this argument, and some things need to be cleared up: All "guns" are based around their projectile, the more that paintball or airsoft guns look and function like real firearms, the less they actually perform in their sport, and the better they look. This is generally less important in airsoft than in paintball, where gun speed and capacity are usually highly valued, which is why Speedball guns have their unique shape and use hoppers instead of magazines or clips. If you value realism over gun advantages, then air soft may appear to you more than paintball, where you may like shooting allot more, faster, at more people. Just wanted to add that on adverage, the hurts more/less and costs more/less is true. However, because FPS is not regulated in airsoft, it very well can hurt more if you are close enough and someone is shooting fast enough. There are actually a few cases of airsofters dying as a result of being shot in the neck from way too close by a sniper rifle which fires much faster than most airsoft guns. As for cost, there are a handfull of companies out there who use actual firearms parts and customize them to use for airsoft guns, these are VERY expensive as you are basically buying a firearm and paying someone to modify it (no licences needed since the end result is still an airsoft gun) These guns and many of the "high performance" airsoft guns actually far surpass even the most expensive of paintball markers (while not getting into custom stuff) because they have the high performance as well as the military look.
Military work of course entails extensive physical training, but also incorporates educational training as well. the military tries to provide better all around soldiers, not just muscle.
Paintball is used by several militaries in training, including the US and GB. Paintball is not a perfect simulation of war by any standards, but It is preferred by many over laser systems or blueguns, because of the actual projectiles used, and their relative low cost.
