Krale Airsoft - An introduction

Not shot, always wrong!
The use of airsoft guns (also called airsoft devices, airsoft replicas, or BB guns) is becoming increasingly popular. And that's not surprising. Have you ever participated in a paintball event? Then you know what it feels like to shoot with a rifle that runs on compressed gas. You can experience a similar feeling with an airsoft weapon, but it is much more lifelike. Because airsoft guns are realistic-looking replicas of existing firearms, with which you can shoot small plastic balls (called BBs). This is done at a limited speed, so that it remains safe for everyone, and no one can get hurt.



Various techniques
Although airsoft replicas look just like real weapons externally, internally they are completely different. In all cases, BBs are shot out by air, and this can be done through various power sources. The main ones are AEG (electric), CO2, gas, and HPA (compressed air). All of which have their own characteristics and advantages. Therefore, do make sure that you get a serious orientation beforehand and be well informed by an airsoft expert. Then you can be sure that you end up buying the weapon that best suits what you intend to do with it.

Airsoft replicas to choose from
If you are looking for an airsoft replica, you will be amazed. You can choose from a huge arsenal of types and models. Rifles, pistols, revolvers, shotguns, snipers, and even grenade launchers in true-to-life imitation: you will find them all to your liking. Some models are based on historical weapons, adding an extra dimension to the experience.

Safety first
Because airsoft replicas are not real weapons, the whole hassle of permits, gun safes, and the like can be omitted. To own an airsoft replica, however, you must be a member of the NABV here in The Netherlands, the interest group for airsofters. Furthermore, you must store the airsoft replica at home in a locked room and package it during transport in such a way that you cannot use the weapon directly.

All kinds of applications
You might think that an airsoft weapon would be ideal for an exciting action game like skirmish or speedsoft. But that is too short of the mark. The police and military also use these types of weapons to train with a realistic looking and feel. And you can also use it to reenact historical events in real life. However, it is important that you always wear adequate protection for your face, especially your ears and eyes. A professional provider of airsoft weapons can give you excellent advice on this and usually has a wide selection of protective goggles, helmets, masks and special clothing such as plate-carriers and tactical vests. Visit Krale Airsoft for all your needs!
