Personally i prefer airsoft, people always say "omg paint ball kills". In my opinion airsoft kills to, me and my friends have ak-47's with 370 fps and we only wair long sleeve shirts for the chest and let me tell u it kills as much as paint ball. On the other hand when u play paintball usually the guns are fair, like they all have semi-auto but airsoft is plastic and most of the noobies play with springers. For paintball ammo is more expensive and u need gas, while for aeg's and springers u obviously dont. Well every one has there own opinion and ur free to put it out there, just dont bash airsoft too much lol .
