Hahaha! I agree!  :thumbsup:

Wtf...718fps at 35 meters....wow thats getting up to a .32 special fps.  100 feet is to close for 718 fps more like 230 feet. Seems like the sport is going from a "competitive fun to do sport" to "how much can I hurt the other guy"

It is not nearly as bad as you think.

The distances we use are the product of years of study and experience.
They are designed to ensure that the kinetic energy of the impact is never more than 1.5 joules. That is about the equivalent of a M120 at point blank.

We take safety very serious and as a result we have just about 0% BB related injuries. In the 15 years I have played, I have never even heard about any injuries, other than the occasional chipped tooth. And even a pistol can do that.

Higher fps limits are a necessity for snipers. A .43 bb at 400fps is about the lowest you can go, if you are to have real functionality as a sniper.

Edit: typo fixed

I hope you guys calculate the decell rate, because the muzzle energy of a .43gram projectile at 400fps is about 3.2 joules

Of cause.. That is why there are different minimum engagement distances.

So, where am I from?
Well, I live in Norway and my name is Aron. Aron is a very rare name here, so don't think it's a standard Norwegian name.

Now, here in Norway we have one big airsoft club called (translated from "Norges Airsoft Forbund" in Norwegian) The Norwegian Airsoft Establishment.
Of course there are several sub-clubs beneath this establishment that operate in different regions of the country.
The rules for fps are:
All sidearms max 300 fps.
Indoors fps on all guns max 300.
Outdoors at any range - 350 fps.
Outdoors at minimum 20 meters with semi fire only - 450 fps.
Outdoors at minimum 30 meters bolt action only - 550 fps.
No guns can exceed the 550 fps limit.

We usually play in the woods away from people. The forests are great for cover and camouflage which make them ideal for our milsim.

I use the KWA KM4 SR10 which I just got yesterday. I cannot wait to try it out in a game. I use the KA 11.1V 1600 mAh Li-Po battery which
gives the gun endurance with a really high rate of fire. I just hope that the mechanism won't wear out very fast.
So far, I love it.

Back to airsoft in Norway. Just one thing, the lousy leaders of our government (you know the men that grew up with only a mom and no dad to teach them about guns, bringing them on fishing trips and all of that, that are so feminine and helpless as a man could possibly get) are planning to illegalize replica airsoft guns. Well... What is left? These stupid people here are too self-interested and cannot tell the difference between a real gun firing and an airsoft. Yes, that does tell something about human intelligence. Maybe we did evolve from the apes after all.
In Norway, guns are illegal unless you have a hunter-permit, and even then they are hard to get. Also, all full-auto guns are illegal like the M4/16 series. Only bolt action .22's can be purchased and used. The reason why I am saying this is that people here see something that looks like a real weapon. They get scared and call the police. What I mean they should do is to use their common sense and realize that a dang 12 year-old is carrying a freakin' M4 rifle. Idiots! No, I am not twelve, but 18, I just used that as an example as something similar just happened. Even an 18 year-old carrying around an M4 in Norway is unimaginably unlikely.
The age limit for airsoft is 18 years by the way.

Now you've got a brief summary of Norways airsoft society.

NO FULL AUTO inside close quaters.(Spraying sucks)----No non military cloaths----AMMO LIMIT 300 BB until the round or the game ends---------No high cap-mid cap or low cap rules but MidCaps are mostly welcomed.High caps :thumbsdown: NO BLIND FIRE,YOU HAVE TO SEE WHERE YOU ARE SHOOTING AT.

Ok, I see you're not the only one with the max 300 round rule. I'm just wondering... do you count up the BB's before you enter? Like actually sitting down and 1, 2, 3, 4... 299, 300! Ready for some action! Oh, the game's over? Dang it!

Well lets say you do it with your guts :) most of the high caps tend to get 300 and if you have midcap you just get 3 of them(even if they say 120 most of them get only 100)

The main rule is,after you have some ammo that you think is not over 300(they are allowed to do a search anytime they want and you'll get banned if they find extra loaded magazines or bb bags somewhere)finish it and you are out.So it doesnt have to be %100 accurate.

Pluss its a buddy like enviorment,everybody knows everyone.Not many people puts their hands under the rock for more bb's.

I am indeed ;) Posted on first page, first reply.
I can add that those who are 16 y.o. can play Airsoft as long as they have with them a guardian who has already played Airsoft for some time and is above 18.

(What club are you in, aronmustang69? PM me;)

The name's Gerard but everyone calls me Mini G as I'm tiny.  I hail from the land of perpetual rain where summer lasts two weeks (and always the two weeks before I get time off), yup thats right I'm from Belfast in Northern Ireland.

Been airsofting for a while and have owned most makes of AEG's, even owned a PTW at one stage.  Been looking at a new M4 and finally decided to go with KWA.  Although I am only just getting back in after a minor injury so I'm rebuying a lot of new kit.  I tend to prefer milsim style games and go to England for a few of the bigger events.  I'm in a local team called the Ghosts, but we don't take ourselves too seriously, afterall we shoot plastic bb's at each other.

Our FPS laws are quite strict and similar to Japan where the RIF's must do no more than 328fps with a 0.20g bb.  Basically means there are only a few dedicated snipers as there is no real benefit to using a springer.  Most of the sites here are woodland based with two indoor sites, one of which used to be a car show room which is currently being rebuilt for airsoft.

Loadout wise I've a few sets with my new desert MARpat and woodland MARpat, throw in some DPM, Russian Berezka, Flecktarn and ACU.

This got me curious.  We have lots of international visitors.  So if you are reading this, please introduce yourself and tell us what airsoft is like in your part of the world.

I'm Mitch, I'm currently working on Guam. I started playing airsoft about a year ago here. There's a pretty active airsoft community on island, with games every Saturday, Sunday, and some weeknights. Mostly urban settings, in old abandoned buildings. There are some property owners that really support airsoft here.

I live in Georgia (Republic of). My name is David. In my country Airsoft is legal and we have no problems with customs. We have public and private community also. I am from private community, because in public are many young cheaters :) We have private forum also.
I have KWA M4A1 Gen.1 with Guarder sp130 spring and magpul accessories (handguard, stock, pistol grip, mags,  ... etc). Shooting about 478 with 0.20BB-s, but I use KSC 0.30. We decide to use LifePo4 batteries, not Lipo, NiMh or NiCD,  Because it is safe then Lipo and very durable in cold weather. I use 3 cell - 9.9V and IMAX B6 Charger.
http://www.hobbyking...o4_Cell_w/_tabs

The rules for fps are:
At any range - 400 fps.
At minimum 10 meters - 450 fps.
At minimum 15 meters - 470 fps.

We play in woods and old abandoned buldigns. Mostly we play night games, game starts at evening of Saturday and ends at evening of Sunday.
Sorry for my English :) I can read and understand, but I have problem with writing :(

I am originally from Germany and lived there for half of my life(~7.5 years, I am 15) and all I can say is that where I lived(smaller village) Airsoft wasn't very popular, I am pretty sure they are much more strict. I think one of my friends had an airsoft gun and it was illegal, so yeah not so popular there. I never heard of any fields or anything either, then again I didn't live in a big city.

Well I am not outside of the US. In fact I am in Texas but after reading everything on this topic and hearing the ammo caps for some people I figured I just had to promote that Texas gun ho shoot um up stereotype.

For the most part in pick up games (just about every weekend) you can use as much ammo as you can carry (at least at the fields I play at). I am part of an organization known as NTA (northtexasairsoft), Its a nice community to play with. I know some other members of NTA who are on these forums. Some fields only allow mid-caps but its really up to the field owner.



This location is actually a haunted house during October. Its called Reindeer mannor

The community is pretty large and there are several local stores for whatever you could want from a bravo piston to a WWII British officer uniform.

We dont really have a real good CQB facility yet, we have been trying to get one established for a while but it always seems to fall through. We normally play in thick brush and wooded areas of about 30+ acres. Normal turnout for a game is ~50 maybe more. Larger Ops sponsored by NTA have anywhere between 50-200 people depending on the weather. One day it can be snowing and the next it can be 105 degrees. The last major Op I went to had a heat index of 110, needless to say I went light that day.

FPS rules:

CQB: 350FPS No full auto under 30ft
Pistol: 350FPS any range
AEG: 400fps, cant shoot under 20ft
support: 450 fps, cant shoot under 50ft
DMR: 450 fps, semi-auto only, midcaps only, cant shoot under 50ft
Sniper: 500fps, cant shoot under 100ft

Just thought I would share my little part of the airsoft world. I enjoy reading about all the different airsoft practices around the world.
