Here at TTAG, when we aren’t wading into the political morass, we spend a fair amount of time reviewing guns, gear, and training. One area that’s been sorely lacking is a discussion about BB and Airsoft weapons. Granted, some people argue that BB and Airsoft are ultimately toys that have no place on a gun blog, but those people would be wrong. BB and Airsoft guns have numerous applications for firearm aficionados. For many people, a BB gun was their first experience with firearms. Just about everything that you would teach a kid about a bullet flinger applies to BB and Airsoft guns. The four rules of gun safety should still be followed and mistakes such as jerking the trigger and other shooting errors will have the same effect on the accuracy of an air powered weapon as it does on a gunpowder one . . .
