    I was just wondering if anyone here plays airsoft (either competitively or as a hobby).

    It's a hobby of mine. I currently have this pistol http://www.airsplat.com/Items/AP-KA-070100-M9.htm

    and I have this gun, which is my first electric rifle, and when I feel like it I'll get a more powerful one. http://www.airsplat.com/Items/EL-BI-M4-9081-D.htm

    Anyone else know of good reputable places to buy from other than airsplat?

    Also does anyone know of any airsoft arenas in Florida? Besides FloridaAirsoft, which requires you to be over 18 ):

    I really want to get one of those... but I'd have no use for it. What do you do with them, Linki?

    my activities include

    1. shoot fat kids in your neighborhood

    2. gather up your friends, force them to buy guns, then have wars in your neighborhood

    3. use google to find some small airsofting place in your area

    4. shoot birds and bugs. i love shooting dragonflies because you see them split in half once the bullet hits them, its wicked cool.

    Get over to this side of the state and lend me one of your guns, we can go whaling together
    all-you-can-eat buffets are a prime gathering place for whale pods in my experience, there are a few around here.

    [edit] I can't buy my own because my mom is super anti-military and would flip out if I asked to buy one. So sad )':

    Airsoft has always made me nervous. Been playing airsoft for a while. Never really paid much for a good gun. Im more of a paintball guy.


    Also, good thing im 18, it would suck wanting to do something LEGAL and fairly safe like airsoft in which the least of your worries are the actual bb. My heart goes out to you young guys.

    it's legal to play airsoft if you are under 18, just most clubs are only for 18-and-up...

    I love having wars, though that's pretty much my only use for Airsoft guns.

    I too am trying to find a reputable website, as I only have a cheap gun my friend handed to me. Also, I am fairly new to this, so can somebody recommend me a decent, cheap gun?
