In many disciplines, an airsoft pistol or revolver makes a perfect choice:
- Skirms: Pistols and revolvers are most often used in skirms as a sidearm for use in small enclosures where restricted space makes rifles difficult to use. Besides that, airsoft pistols and revolvers are simply very useful as back-up.
- Parcours: The use of pistols is often seen in the Parcours discipline, also known as IAPS (International Airsoft Practice Shooting) and comparable with IPSC in sport shooting. In a short amount of time, as many targets as possible have to be hit with a high score. Besides an airsoft pistol, three magazines and an IAPS-approved holster are needed.
- Paper target: Just as in sport shooting, it’s possible to shoot on targets from a fixed distance. It’s advisable to choose a pistol or revolver with adjustable hop-up as accuracy is key.
- Speedsoft: within airsoft, speedsoft leans a bit more towards paintball and laser gaming when it comes to speed and tactics. Light airsoft replicas are used, making pistols and in a way also revolvers very suitable. The weapon of choice often is a pistol with hi-cap magazine.
Airsoft pistols and revolvers are very popular with gun collectors as many of the pistols and revolvers are fully licensed by the original manufacturer, meaning on the outside they look exactly like the original. Collectors who just collect and aren’t really interested in shooting find in airsoft pistols and revolvers a way more affordable alternative that also comes with a lot less legislation issues as an airsoft pistol or revolver is principally the same as a deactivated gun.
