Paintball ftw. Though, I have friends that do Airsoft as well. Have played them both, but I felt paintball was more fun.

Btw, I'm not talking about playing paintball on a course. More of in the woods with just trees, bushes, and such.

Airsoft is fun because the weapons are exact replicas. However, I prefer paintball because that actually hurts.

I much prefer airsoft to painball.

-It's not as messy.
-It's not as expensive.
-It's faster paced and easy to jump in and out of.
-It's a good alternative to collecting actual firearms (since you can actually use the stuff you buy in a sport vs other people without fear of killing your opponent).
-Personally, I find it much more fun and satisfying to play.

I played paintball a couple times when I was younger. But then when I tried airsoft I was like "why do people like paintball if this sport exists?!" The difference between the two was like the difference between crap and gold.

If I wanted to go and play a session of paintball, it would cost me a little under $100. Airsoft costs me $25 and I get to spend more time playing and less time re-arming and re-gassing.

There is no way I'd ever go back to playing paintball.

A session of paintball, for me, only costs about $30-$40, and that's playing all day (of course, after buying your gun/gear and accessories).

Playing at a course is boring. If you just go out into the woods and play, all you really need to buy are the paintballs and some air for your gun. After that, you're basically set.

Laser Tag lets you throttle and side-check small children.

Major points in anyone's book.
