Don’t be fooled by the name of the sport. The name was coined by the Daisy BB gun company to market a newly created BB gun rifle using plastic projectiles contrary to their usual metal ball bearings. These new plastic BBs were safer to shoot at opposing players with. The game has since expanded to the sport it is today with more sophisticated guns, more accurate guns, and safer BBs.
Airsoft is a military simulation sport where players participate in mock combat with authentic military-style weapons and tactics. Unlike paintball, airsoft uses 6mm round BBs made of hard plastic. The guns used are full scale replicas of real world weapons. Our arenas provide you the player with full authentic experience of a first person shooter.
The sport is also a great way in teaching honor and respect! The game relies on a player to call their own hits. So if you get shot you need to be honest enough to say your out and not cheat because nobody is around too see.
The Compound is the first and only Airsoft "ShootHouse" training simulation center in the state. You will experience real world scenarios and objectives within the arena. You will also be able to take part in force on force training. This is the closest you will get to the real thing and also be able to respect our own Law Enforcement and Armed Forces by experiencing what they do in the real world!
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
We suggest you wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing that cover as much exposed skin as possible. Hooded sweatshirts, sweat pants, and good running shoes with ankle support are suggested. Spec Ops Group has a shop where you can purchase or rent airsoft apparel including jump suits.
DOES GETTING SHOT WITH A BB HURT?
The sting of the bb is part of the mystique of the game. So, while getting shot by a bb might sting a little, the sensation is similar to getting snapped by a rubber band and will usually go away in a couple seconds with the high of adrenaline.
So get ready to be part of a real life Call Of Duty!
