Gas Guns in an Airsoft Event
When attending an airsoft event, your sidearm should be a gas or CO2 gun. The size and design of a handgun make gas and CO2 the perfect solution. It’s up to you and your combat style as to whether to use gas or CO2. Many airsoft players prefer gas because it can easily be recharged at any point. You don’t have to wait for the entire charge to be spent unlike CO2. Additionally, CO2 typically takes longer to change out than to recharge green gas. The main advantage of CO2 is the increased FPS and range compared to gas. If you’re the type of player that would utilize your pistol for mid to long-range combat, then CO2 is for you. If you opt for CO2, make sure you regularly practice changing your cartridges so you can do it as quickly as possible. If you’re at an event and need to change, you don’t want to take too long while taking fire from the opposing force.
