Airsoft is a recreational shooting sport that originated in Japan in the late 1970s and has since gained popularity worldwide. It is often considered a simulation or imitation of military or tactical scenarios and involves using replica firearms that fire small plastic pellets called BBs.
The minimum age requirement to play airsoft can vary depending on the country and local regulations. In many places, the minimum age to participate in airsoft games is typically 18 years old. This is because airsoft guns resemble real firearms and can shoot non-lethal projectiles, so authorities often want to ensure that players are mature enough to handle them responsibly.
You can play airsoft in the rain, but there are certain considerations and precautions you should take to ensure safety and protect your equipment. Keep safety a top priority, and if conditions become unsafe or uncomfortable during the game, don’t hesitate to stop and seek shelter if necessary.
There is no strict universal rule for the minimum number of participants, as it largely depends on the scale and objectives of the event.
You can find our general regulations regarding rules and safety on our rules & safety page. For certain events, additional rules may apply, and these are listed on the event pages.
Yes, in most airsoft events and venues, you can bring your own gear to participate in games. In fact, many players prefer to use their own equipment as it offers familiarity and comfort during gameplay. Bringing your gear also allows you to use equipment that suits your playstyle and preferences.
Ensuring the safety of players is of paramount importance for us at Silo Events.
Several measures we take to enhance player safety include:
- Safety briefing.
- Required safety gear.
- Field inspections.
- Safe zones.
- FPS Limits.
- No blind firing.
- Experienced staff.
On top of that we enforce the appropriate age restrictions and encourage fair play and sportsmanship. Our team always has adequate medical supplies available and there are emergency protocols in place.
Airsoft can cause some discomfort and minor pain, but it is generally considered to be less painful than other shooting sports like paintball. The level of pain experienced during airsoft largely depends on several factors.
In general, airsoft BBs are relatively small and lightweight, and they are made of plastic, which makes them less painful than the larger and heavier paintballs used in paintball. Most players describe the sensation as more of a sting or a sharp tap, rather than significant pain.
Airsoft, when played responsibly and with proper safety precautions, can be a relatively safe recreational activity. However, like any sport involving physical activity and the use of equipment, there are inherent risks. It is crucial for players to understand and follow safety guidelines to minimize the chances of accidents and injuries.
