Which is more powerful an airsoft gun or a paintball gun?

Paintball guns can be adjusted to higher settings, and most airsoft guns cannot be adjusted. So in that respect the Paintball gun is "more powerful" However I suggest that you quit looking at the guns in terms of "powerful" as high settings on most guns can cause injury to other players.....and that is the very reason paintball guns are adjustable. 99% of paintball fields demand that players adjust their markers to a safe level (280fps is common). Nobody would have a "more powerful" marker, and thus everyone will be playing fair and safe.
