Airsoft Gear Information
And even though the pellets are made of plastic, they can still do some damage, so it’s extremely important to wear protective airsoft gear. Goggles and masks are the most common form of protection, with the latter obviously offering more protection than the former. But players who just want to wear goggles should consider purchasing an anti-fog spray to ensure complete visibility. Otherwise, players (especially those who wear glasses) should look into masks with protective mesh screens which allow sufficient air flow. Regardless of your situation, make sure you take the time to research quality airsoft gear before heading out to the field.
Don’t have your own gear? No problem! Our airsoft rental fleet is one of the largest in the state of Colorado so groups big and small are always welcome. When renting equipment from us you receive a custom-made electronic ICS airsoft rifle shooting at approximately 350 feet per second, a magazine capable of holding up to 300 BB’s at a time, face protection that protects each player’s ears, eyes and jaw as well as the batteries to power the airsoft guns. Our rental equipment is maintained weekly to give you the best lenses in your goggles and the best guns in your hands. For more information on airsoft pricing please visit our pricing page.
If you are in need of some new gear, we have you covered! Our airsoft store carries a variety of equipment for every piece you need.

Airsoft Scenario Play
So, now that you know what to look for in terms of gear, let’s talk about the advantages of the game itself. As with any activity that requires coordination with multiple people, playing airsoft is a great way to make friends and build teamwork. Depending on the scenario, players may need to scout out the best route to capture the flag or assign specific players to be snipers. Coming to an agreement about which role each team member should play is crucial to the team’s success.
Another advantage of playing airsoft is exercise. Speedy guerilla-style skirmishes are as exciting as they are frantic and are a surefire way to stay fit. Of course, players who prefer lengthy stealth-based battles which test their patience and endurance won’t burn as many calories, but they’ll have a blast all the same.
So, if you’re looking for a fun, healthy activity where you can make friends and experience the thrill of combat, consider finding an airsoft organization near you. Most players will be happy to teach you the basics, so that before you know it, you’ll be picking off targets with the best of them.

History of Airsoft
A little information about Airsoft, airsoft was invented in Japan in response to laws which forbid the possession of firearms. While airsoft guns look almost identical to the more lethal variety of firearms, they are 100% legal in most countries. The name “airsoft” stems from the way compressed air propels the BBs towards their target.
The activity itself is similar to paintball, as the goal in both activities is to shoot your opponents with nonlethal projectiles. Unlike paintballs, which cake their targets in paint, airsoft pellets leave no visible marks (save for minor bruising, which is invisible through the camouflage players typically wear). Consequently, players who have been hit must be upfront about it, unless they want to be labeled cheaters.

Is the outdoor field the same as the indoor field?

Can I bring my own airsoft gear?
Yes! You are welcome to bring your own airsoft gear if you have it but we do also have airsoft rental equipment available for those that don’t. If you do bring your own equipment, a barrel bag is required to be over the end of the barrel to maintain safety. Barrel bags can be purchased at our store while you are checking in for $6.
Is airsoft actually soft?
Airsoft is a very similar game to paintball yet different in that the projectiles are 6mm plastic BB’s. This means that airsoft still stings for a second or two when getting hit. You can combat the sting by making sure to wear long-sleeved clothing when you arrive to play. We do also have gloves for sale that offer more hand protection in our airsoft store for between $7-$20.
What is the chronograph speed for airsoft?
If you have your own equipment, before being allowed on the field, each gun you plan on using must be chronographed with one of our field supervisors. The field speed at our indoor location is 355 fps with a .20 gram BB. For our outdoor field, guns mush shoot under 400 fps with a .20 gram BB. If none of this makes sense to you then simply ask our field supervisors and they will be happy to assist you.
How do games rotate for airsoft?
Airsoft games at American Paintball Coliseum are broken into public and private matches. Each group is allowed to play just amongst themselves or play in publically run games. Each game generally lasts about 5 minutes a piece and is played in rotation with the rest of the games to play at that time. Public airsoft matches are held at the end of each private group cycle to ensure even playing time.
