They orange barrel would not really work for me and I would not use it as I NEVER have it in public. Only at sites and if I was trying to camo myself Then They see a bright orange barrel that would defeat the purpose.

Goldfish: Have you seen that person who plays at sopley yet. I am hoping to get some more info as I am going to go to lots of sites in the summer holidays and I am goiung to go to alot of weekenders in London and hoping to play in America if the iraqi war is over in september. I am especially looking forward to Sopley as I am a big fan of CQB.

I prefer paintball. Of course, the guns don't look as realistic, but at least you can tell when you hit someone!

Do you airsoft guys get that same problem with BBs hooking to left field after they exit the barrel, or do they fly straight as an arrow? (I'm gonna go get a Smart Parts All American if this keeps up...)

If the Hop-up is on they can go quite far. However one advantage that paintball does have is because they are heavier than BBs they are less affected by wind however this also means they do not go as far.

Is there (by law) an age limitation, and does anyone know if this sport is popular in Belgium?

There is not really a big age limit. It recommends 14 years to use and 18 to buy but they are not leggaly binding. I think it is popular as alot of the Hong kong sites do free shipping with the packages to major countries. It is England, aMerica, France, Germany somewere else and Belgium is on that list so it must be popular there.

My P90 is an AEG which Means Automatic Electric gun. I uses a battery to move a motor and gears. It has a hard recoil aluminium piston fitted and makes alot of noise. It almost as loud as real gun. The gear box is towards the back and when soldered it can make my ears hurt. With the silencer fitted it makes a considerable amount of difference. However I am getting an extended barrel and it will cover up the sound absorbing sponge so I going to place some around the gearbox. The gas gun with metal slides do not make that much of a noise more of a pop sound but the ones with metal slides sound like a real gun when they are cocked which means pulling back the slide. I mean cocking the gun sounds real. not firing the gun sounds real. The full auto gas blow back guns like M11's and Uzis are quite loud but not as loud as AEG's.

Hope this helps

I have something interesting fro all of us.

click here

Click on the green bo that appears then on the little box that appears it is jappanese so click on the writing that is different colored then select any of the guns and you can customise it. In the box that opens when you click a gun just click the little bars on the side so you can put more parts on them. look what I can do to my beloved P90.

Well, I found two groups in Belgium, unfortunately the age limit is 18 here, so I'll keep playing counterstrike for another year or four.

no airsoft is not paintball. It uses bb guns to play in a simular style to paintball but the guns are all 1:1 replicas
