And for that, you need airsoft guns. If you don’t have these guns, never mind, buy them from airsoft stores.
Working as a replica firearms sales executive for more than 10 years and assisting customers in buying a good airsoft gun of their choice, the experience has led me to classify 7 points you should keep in mind while choosing an airsoft gun.
Here in this blog, I am sharing those important points with you.
Be all ears!
Here we go:
Why you want an airsoft gun? What purpose will you be using it for?
Ask these questions to yourself and you will get the reason why you want one.
Once you have all the answers, you will get a fair idea about what to look for.
After analysing the requirement, the next step for you is to find out the types of airsoft guns you can purchase.

2) Types of Guns
Which one to purchase? Most of the amateurs feel stuck in this question.
It is better to get some basic information about the guns beforehand.
Mainly there are 3 types of airsoft guns
If you are smart, you can guess their working based on their names. (I hope you already did that 😉)
But for others, let me make it simple for you.
Spring guns are operated using a spring system; gas guns use compressed gas such as carbon monoxide or green gas to shoot and electric guns are powered by a battery.
All the three types are popular and come in a large variety. You can choose the type as per your choice and liking as well as your kids’.
After picking up the type, let’s move to their price.

How much should I spend on an airsoft gun?
If you will ask me about this, my opinion is to spend as per your usage and skills.
If you are a beginner (or your kids are) and want it for the occasional purpose, don’t go for an expensive airsoft gun. Having said that, I would like to add that don’t buy the cheaper one too.
Often cheap things cost us more in the long run.
However, if you are a pro and you want to grow your kid as a passionate airsoft ninja, buy the best one without thinking about price.
Once you are done with the price, let us see the durability factor.
How much durability are you looking for?
Again, the answer depends on your usability. If you want an airsoft gun for playing occasionally and that too with kids for a short span of time, you can choose the gun with a plastic body.
But if you want it to last long, then choose the one with the metal body.

Another dominant feature to look for is the power of the gun. Check the power i.e. feet per second of the gun.
For an amateur, a gun with 300fps is a good benchmark to start with and experienced players can go for 400fps, 5oofps power.
The sight makes the target clearer and increases the chances of a winning shot.
But a beginner should start with an open battle without using a sight. See with both eyes open and aim your target. However, if you feel to buy one, then go for a red dot sight.
7) Spares and Accessories
The market is flooded with umpteen spares and accessories of airsoft guns.
From scopes to lasers to flashlights to magazines, you can buy them as per your need and choice.
So, these are 7 points you should keep in mind whilst buying an airsoft gun.

All the above-mentioned factors play a significant role in your buying decision.
As you are buying the guns for playing with your children, it is advisable that you should buy basic and cheap guns.
However, if you have changed your mind and want to turn the amateur in you into a pro, carefully analyse all the factors and buy the best airsoft gun available.
So, what are you thinking about? Check the retailers online and buy the right one.
Needless to say, airsoft is a fun filled game to play and these baby dolls are fun to shoot 😊 with.
I would love to hear from you. Post a comment and tell me which airsoft games you have played with your kids and your experience with airsoft guns.
