WHAT IS AIRSOFT?
Airsoft is a modern combat sport/recreational hobby in which participants shoot round biodegradable pellets from replica firearms known as airsoft guns. Often these are exact replicas of real firearms, tactical gear, and accessories used by military or police organizations around the world.
Airsoft was first created in Asia in the late 1970's as civilian ownership of firearms was prohibited. In the mid 1980's, airsoft guns were adapted into a recreational sport which is now enjoyed by thousands of players every year.
An "honor system" is employed whereby the players rely on each others' honesty to admit to being hit, because unlike paintball, the plastic pellets do not leave a distinguishable surface mark. Depending on the muzzle velocity of the gun and distance from which a person is shooting, the person on the receiving end of the airsoft BB will usually feel the impact.
There are 3 types of airsoft rentals available at Capture The Flag Airsoft Cochrane; snipers, sidearm pistols and M4's. See the Airsoft Pricing for more info. Airsoft is enjoyed by those 10 years of age and up if you are using all your own airsoft rifle, or 14 years of age and up if renting an airsoft gun from us. Limited rentals are available so always prebook.
