Airsoft sniper rifle + ammunition = dangerous (looking) weapon
Just the words “Airsoft sniper rifle” sound
intimidating. When you pair this weapon with ammunition you have a
threatening weapon on your hands - at least it LOOKS that way. An
airsoft sniper rifle is made to look exactly like its real
counterpart. Of course the weight distribution, shooting mechanism,
and ammunition are different, but to an untrained eye, this gun appears
lethal. By law, these airguns must have a bright orange indicator
around the barrel opening to show the public that it does not shoot
real bullets. However, to someone who doesn't know this fact, it's
small comfort if you point the rifle at him or her. So don't. Ever.
airsoft sniper rifle and how to get the most out of your ammunition
airsoft sniper rifle requires the standard 6mm plastic pellets used in
other air guns of the same variety. This ammunition is usually
purchased cheaply in bulk packs of about 5,000 a box. Unlike regular
bb pellets, these pellets can be used safely more than once. All in
all you are typically going to pay about $.01 per shot. When you
purchase the BBs, make sure that you also buy a speed loader so you
can load your magazine quickly and accurately. This is usually more
important for rapid-fire airsoft machine guns, but can come in handy
with a single-shot gun as well.
It is hard to stress enough the
importance of keeping your airsoft sniper rifle in protected areas.
Different areas of the country have been terrorized by sharpshooters,
and many people are still highly nervous about the sniper risk. Even
though this plastic ammunition is innocuous when compared with real
bullets, the shooter can easily be targeted by an armed police officer
as a threat to the public if he or she dares take the gun out of a
safe area. Never use it in public (other than during a team event in
an approved setting).
