Green Gas vs CO2 for Airsoft Pistols
In the world of air pistols the most common method of pushing BBs or pellets out of the barrel is via compressed gas. After all these are airguns we are talking about. When it comes to repeating and blowback air pistols there are two major propellants that shooters will encounter: 12 gram CO2 and green gas. For those of you who have only shot .177 caliber pistols, you are most likely familiar with those small capsules of fun. But what is green gas? Stay tuned and we’ll flesh out some facts about each and how you can best use the appropriate platforms.
What is an Airsoft Skirmish?
Some call airsoft “paintball for grown-ups” but many airsofter players take it a bit more seriously, especially when it comes to an official event hosted by an airsoft field or organization. Of course like everything there’s an in-between too. In airsoft, some may call that middle of the road event a skirmish. A localized event during which a group of people get decked out in camouflage gear and navigate private grounds shooting at each other. In simple terms, that’s a “Skirmish” or “Skirmishing”. It’s a step up from a backyard shoot-out and a step down from a full blown airsoft milsim event which is simulated military mission game play.
Where is Ammo In Stock?
Wouldn’t we all like to know the answer to that ammunition in-stock question? The hard truth is that it’s not. Those of us in the shooting industry that shoot live-fire rounds in addition to our airsoft obsession are just as hard pressed to find handgun and rifle rounds as those that don’t work for a firearm or airgun company. Fortunately for us we still have a small stash of airsoft BBs for internal use and we have shipments scheduled so we can keep a good flow of Elite Force BBs at your local airsoft fields and stores for your local events. We wouldn’t be doing our jobs right if we didn’t. That’s not to say it won’t be challenging at times because we’re not immune to the increased demand that resulted from the pandemic and ammo shortage.
Airsoft Tips for Competition Practice and Training Drills
Here’s some airsoft practice tips from shooting competitor Deb Ferns of Babes with Bullets. She’s been using airsoft rifles from Elite Force and Umarex for a while now after running into the guys from Gnat Warfare, a company that sets up interactive ranges for events. Whether it’s to introduce someone new to the shooting sports or to get some additional practice and trigger time in when sending live powder rounds down range just isn’t possible, Deb has found ways to use airsoft to her advantage.
My First Airsoft Skirmish Experiences
A few years back I received my first initiation into force-on-force airsoft war. Actually, it was 11 or 12 years ago I think. Yikes. I’m getting old. My second experience wasn’t long after, but it wasn’t as an active member of a squad.
Airsoft to the Rescue
Who in their wildest imagination thought my gun range in Tucson would be shut down for the last couple of months, plus possibly longer into the future, during the COVID-19 issue? I knew I needed trigger time before I head to multigun nationals later this summer so what are my options? Well, after leaving my Umarex Elite Force AR airsoft rifles sitting in the garage for the last two years it was time to blow off the dust and figure out how to set up a little course of fire.
H&K Mp5a5 Elite AEG - Notes from Dad
So, EF was nice enough to ask me if I would write a blog post for their fabulous new website. After saying yes, I realized not only have I never written a blog post, but that I wasn’t sure where to even begin. Then, one day, after someone asking me numerous questions about my current favorite AEG replica, it dawned on me.
GnatWarfare: Airsoft an Emerging Practice and Training Aid - With the Right Targets
Airsoft is fun. I was introduced to airsoft almost two decades ago, in my brother-in-law’s back yard. I took on a few well-armed six-year-olds, and realized just how out of shape I was. I had the advantage, I thought, as I could aim well and had a sound strategy. They had stamina. They won. Ever since, I've been a proponent of force-on-force training. But airsoft guns have increased in power, and I won’t play with my nephews any more. They can shoot, too, and it hurts. And I still can't keep up with them, which is another topic.
