Things To Know Before Going Paintballing
Paintballing is a good sport for anyone looking for engaging fun activities. Families and friends are some best people to go paint balling with over holidays or weekends. Paintballing gives participants be it kids or adults a fun military experience. This sport is very engaging in terms of body exercise and that is why it is loved by many. The question of how realistic paintball guns are is huge for those who haven’t played paintball before. Frequent players think that paintball guns are not as realistic as actual guns in many ways.
Anyone with military experience will immediately dismiss the velocity that a paintball gun produces on its shots. Paintball guns produce relatively low energy compared to the firing force that a real gun produces to shoot a bullet. Damage done to an opponent player is very light as the paintball rounds splash paint upon hitting its target. Paintballs don’t hurt contrasted to how a real bullet would feel and damage caused greatly differs. The impact of the paintballs is minimized by dressing the players in heavy bulky costumes and masks to prevent accidental injuries that can be fatal. It is unrealistic when differentiated from rifles because paintball guns are made to produce shots of low velocity to minimize impact force.
There are weight differences when comparing a real gun to a paintball gun. This is although relative depending on what type of guns you are referencing. Smaller paintball guns are lighter while the majority of them are normally heavy. The weight of a fully loaded paintball gun isn’t that different from rifles. Other paintball guns can fire up to 30 balls per second, more times than some weapons can. The paintball rounds are also heavy, most are heavier than normal bullets. Weights are dependent on the type of paintball guns one uses, others are loaded with magazines which make them as heavy as real guns.
The overall feel can determine how realistic paintball guns are to the users. Feel depends on the gun a player uses. The Mils Tactical paintball guns feel more real like actual army tactical firearms. Other paintball guns like Val ken Gotcha Tactical, despite being a good gun, look and feel more amateurish. Contrasted to actual rifles, some feel paintball guns vary depending on the stock that is placed on them.
During the firing of an actual gun, the recoil force resulting from momentum when the bullet goes off can sometimes affect the precision of a shot. This recoil rarely affects the accuracy of experienced gun handlers that are trained. Recoil produced in paintball guns is quite fairly unnoticeable to players. When compared to real rifles, which have almost ten times higher recoil force, paintball guns are unrealistic in this aspect. But paintball guns are made to produce low recoil force for the safety of users, who are amateurs.
The accuracy of a paintball gun is quite low due to several factors like the forces and sizes of paintball rounds. A paintball gun’s reliability can be slightly increased by upgrading to a longer barrel. Compared to modern firearm’s accuracy, that of paintball guns is not good. There are a few exceptions however like Empire Axe which has a 99% accuracy rating compared to real rifles. The accuracy of paintball guns is also low since sometimes the rounds don’t travel in a straight line, missing the target.
Real-powered bullets can travel fast for miles before hitting their aimed targets. The range of paintball guns is not great because of the power that paintball guns run. A normal paintball gun ranges a distance of about 50 meters from one point to its target. The range of paintball guns can be increased through modifications, but there is still a huge difference when compared to ranges of real bullets. Even with these modifications, the distance of fired paintball rounds is increased to just over 120ft.
Paintball guns are realistic in the fact that they try to resemble firearms as much as possible. Differences, in reality, comes when comparing numerous aspects of paintball guns versus actual firearms. Paintball guns are realistic in terms of their design of guns to look just about exactly as normal weapons. The mechanisms that firearms and paintball guns use are similar but only differ slightly depending on specific types of paintball guns. In general, paintball guns.
