The realism of modern airsoft guns from Umarex and Elite Force is incredible. They have become an ideal tool for personal-defense training and handgun handling. If the orange muzzle cap were removed, many gun owners would be hard pressed to distinguish a quality replica airsoft pistol from a centerfire model. The Umarex GLOCK 19X, for example, features the same controls and functions as the firearm. Taking the Umarex GLOCK 19X apart for maintenance is even similar, with some parts being remarkably familiar. Getting started shooting airsoft guns is easy. No license is required to own one, and they can be shipped directly to your home provided there are no local or state laws that dictate otherwise. Always check before ordering. Airsoft guns are available in popular shooting platforms such as AR-15-type rifles, bolt-action rifles, and a variety of handguns such as Walther Airsoft, GLOCK, Heckler & Koch, and Smith & Wesson Airsoft. They are most often powered by springs, CO2, green gas, or electric motors commonly known as AEGs - Automatic Electric Guns.
