I play airsoft more then i do paintball, but im hearing that paintball is better. My question therefore is How?
Its-you-or-me

Con

i played airsoft 1 time and i will never again... wow this little dinky plactic ball goes at least 30 feet before veering off 1 direction or anther....

some myths that arnt true..... about airsoft and paintball
"air soft goes farther then paintball!"NO it doesnt, i'd love to see someone try and shoot an airsoft ball, 60 yards, accurately!
" you can shoot faster with airsoft!"Not nessarely most people can get over 10 rounds a second. the Pro league is capped at 15bps(balls per second) and some places down to 13. paintball guns rip if you dont put a cap on it, and you have fast fingers, i know that i, myself can get about 14bps on STRIGHT semi

"paintball guns dont have full auto" YEAH they do, i'd say over 3/4 of the guns do

"airsoft hurts more"NO it doesnt , just because your airsoft guns' shooting 350fps dont mean anything, if you have a legal paintball gun (meaning shooting under 300fps) its still gona hurt more.. i've already got a finger broken from paintball.... which is more then i can say about a little ball that bonces off of you and leaves a little red mark for about 5 mins
those are the reasons i think paintball is more fun than airsoft

Okay listen. A sport can't be measured by pain inflicted. I could find an example of a terrible paintball gun much as you could find a terrible airsoft gun. Airsoft is totally tactics for the most part. Tactics and tech work. Paintball is speed and quick thinking. Both have positives and negatives. By saying one hits harder that is false. A larger projectile fired at a lower speed can have the same energy joules. And really. 30 feet and dipping one way? Thats just a cheap/horrible weapon. My M4 hits within 8 inches at 230ft.

Yea kinda a poor debate. I don't understand how a little "dinky" plastic ball barely moving can compare to the adrenaline of a large scale paintball war.

so far the debate topic rox, and personally ive played both paintball and airsoft (airsoft is better, ive played in 2 paintball games and 1 tournement in pinckney michigan, airsoft at my friends house- im pretty experienced in both) however, both sides suck in supporting their positions.
