Spring Pistols in an Airsoft Event
Spring Pistols are recommended for minimal use in an airsoft event. It’s not because of the cocking between shots that causes the disadvantage as you might think. The issue comes from the fact that they lack in their accuracy and consistency in firing rate. If you’re using a spring pistol as your main sidearm, you will certainly run into issues, even in close quarters combat (CQC). Some of the great advantages of a spring pistol is that they are inexpensive, have zero maintenance cost, and do not require any external items for it to fire (no gas, batteries, cartridges, or air tanks). There is no doubt that you should have a spring air pistol available at an event, but it’s suggested that you use it as a last resort.
