Paintball, Airsoft or Nerf? That’s the question when it comes to your preference. To the casual observer, the three are all the same. But they aren’t. If you’re looking to get into the sport, but are not really sure which is which, then this article will break it down for you.

Airsoft:

Whereas paintballers are basically extreme sports fanatics, Airsoft players generally prefer a more tactical game. Airsoft is a game of the mind as much as it is physically. It mimics real life combat situations. Elimination occurs when you’re hit with non-metallic pellets shot using Airsoft guns, which are essentially replicas of real firearms.

Airsoft guns are very powerful, capable of causing notable damage to your opponent. The myth is that Airsoft guns are cheaper, but that isn’t necessarily true. Yes, there are cheaper guns, but on average, guns cost the same. Selecting one of these sports, then, should not be determined by cost, rather what it offers.

Nerf:

Nerf (or trademark NERF), is essentially the same as paintball. In fact, NERF is the name of the weapons—the toys owned by Hasbro. In this case, we are obviously referring to the toy weapons, which are foam-based. The dart guns (Nerf Blasters) shoot ammo called Nerf Foam.

Nerf Blasters called Vortex fire small glow in the dark discs made of plastic, covered in foam that have a firing range of up to sixty feet. The Zombie Strike Nerf Blasters were made for fans of Humans vs Zombies games and the Rebelle Blasters are exclusively for “females”.

There are various other toys/games/weapons made by Hasbro for Nerf. These include the Nerf N-Force, the Super Soaker, Lazer Tag and Nerf Dog. Nerf also produced videogame accessories for PS2 and Nintendo. Various gaming giants such as Visionary Media, Inc. and EA Games produced Nerf videogames in 1999, 2008 and 2009.

Paintball:

Paintball is a sport as simple as its name. The players, either individually or in teams, compete to eliminate each other by shooting paintballs at each other. Well, it’s not the paint you put on your walls. It’s more like water paint; non-toxic and biodegradable. It is a very popular game and you won’t have to go so far to find organized events and tournaments. One of the many differences Paintball has with Airsoft is that the weapons (or markers) do not really resemble real firearms. Of all these sports, Paintball appears to be the most popular, even though the myth is that it is more costly than Airsoft.

There are various pyrotechnics you can employ in Paintball such as paint grenades, rockets and smoke grenades. Using them depends on the site you are at.

The cold hard truth is that there is not one better than the other. Each game has its ups and downs but they are all an equal amount of fun. The choice is yours.

How To Have Fun And Creative Ways To Pass Time

Are you looking for a new hobby but don’t want to waste time and money for something that was ultimately useless? Want to be productive as well as find something to kill hours of the day?

Does everybody know what time it is? That’s right – tool time is one of the most popular hobbies out there. Popularized by home improvement television shows and the relative easiness promoted by modern technology, this hobby’s benefits are obvious. Not only are you killing some time, but the sense of accomplishment when you build a new piece of furniture, renovate the house or garden or repair something broken is overwhelming. If your house doesn’t need any more bookshelves or cupboards, sell your wares and make some extra cash. Homemade craft is particularly desired in an era of mass production and consumption – so be creative!

Boot up your IT skills

In this highly computerized world we live in, knowledge in this area is sure to be helpful. If you’ve got an interest in technology, perhaps your new hobby should involve learning about hardware and software. From here, you can build your own computer, which is often cheaper and leads to better performance – plus, they are much easier to repair. You can also upgrade certain parts bit by bit rather than buying a whole new computer once it’s outdated (which in the computing world is very often). You can also save money on tech support services and IT repairs. Learning about how your computer works is not only interesting, but it’s beneficial to your life in so many ways.

Fix things like a machine

This is for all you motor enthusiasts: learning mechanics can not only help you in servicing and repairing your car instead of paying professionals to do it, but it can also be a rather fun and productive way to kill some time. If you’ve got the money for it, buy an old, cheap car and learn to repair it. Replace worn or broken parts, customize it, rebuild it and once you’re done, you can resell it or keep it as a monument and reminder of your accomplishment.

Learning mechanics doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. Start with reading; get familiar with the language of mechanics, learn the parts of a car, what you should strive for, and what to avoid. Then, offer your services to a professional mechanic, perhaps as a part-time intern. Though you’re not likely to be paid, you’ll gain much more in experience.
