Airsoft pistols are great backup weapons in airsoft games. They are beginners' favorites for target practice but also play an important part in closed quarter battles.
Airsoft pistols as backup weapons: Let's say you are in the middle of an airsoft game and something happens to your primary gun - it brakes down, it gets jammed, you run out of ammo and don't have time to reload, your battery runs out (or your gas)... that's a scary scenario! You need a trusty backup weapon to rely on in these terrible situations!
An airsoft pistol is the best choice as a secondary airsoft weapon. It is not expensive and it's easy to carry because of it's small size and light weight.
Bottom line is, if you want an airsoft backup, look no further than a trusty pistol.
Airsoft pistols in close combat situations: Airsoft pistols are meant to be used on targets under 50 meters so they may not be useful when running an offensive movement on multiple targets from a distance. But in close combat they are the best. Imagine you are playing inside a building, and you need to hide behind a piece of furniture, a bathroom vanity unit or behind a corner. What type of gun will help you remain unnoticed? I bet you there’s no room for you and your shotgun or sniper rifle to hide... In these situations airsoft pistols work perfectly! It’s small in size, easy to handle, point and shoot and you can hold it very close to your body.
So, in close combat battles nothing beats the size of the Airsoft pistol.
Airsoft pistols for the fun: These pistols are just fun to hold, light and well balanced. How about holding two semi-automatic airsoft pistols, one in each hand, busting out from behind your cover and firing at your unsuspecting opponents? If you need a visual for this go here
Yeah, there isn't a more glorifying experience than firing two pistols at your enemy, and they give you some kind of superpowers, believe me!
