    As I search for common pistols, I keep seeing "Airsoft" replicas mixed in with the results. Is this a generic term for BB Guns or a Brand Name?

    Just some brief info please?

    Also, do any of these models simulate realistic practice with the designs that they replicate?

    Thank You

    Plastic BBs that come in various hardness. Kids shoot each other with low powered guns called Airsoft guns.

    I guess adults too.

    Thank You.

    Sorry for the double post. Im still trying to learn the meaning of the folder icons. Maybe the moderator will be kind enough to close that second thread down.
