Today’s airguns and airsoft are serious contenders with firearms they mimic. The replicating details include their overall design, trigger feel, and weight (to name a few). Airguns and airsoft have been considered to be better choices for rapid fire achievement over firearms due to the trigger response often available in their products. The semi-auto airguns are particularly desirable. The air rapid fire shooting range is set at 30 feet or less (verses 25 yards), giving the shooter an excellent opportunity to train in a self-defense close-range scenario. Thus, airsoft and airgun rapid fire range locations are far more adaptable than the rapid fire firearm ranges. As well, rapid fire expenses a hefty amount of ammunition. Air ammo is a fraction of the cost of firearm ammo (easily 100th the cost).

Airguns and airsoft offer an excellent alternative to firearms, and as a tool to maintain proficiency with firearm skills. They also assist the shooter with an easier transition into firearms, as many of today’s products are excellent mimics to firearms. As well, it is easier to correct shooting mistakes when teaching techniques using these choices. In the airrifle category, a Crosman 10/77 is a replica of the 1022 Ruger. The airpistol category offers the Baretta PX4 Storm, which is a replica of it’s firearm counterpart. These are only two of many options available in the airgun and airsoft industry. Therefore, airguns and airsoft can carry their weight and enter into sports that used to be solely held by firearms. Welcome airguns and airsoft to the exciting, action-packed sport of steels. Whether you are looking for affordable training, a competitive edge, a family fun time, or a team-building tool, air steels will meet your needs.

Airsoft and airguns are widely accepted internationally. Some models available on the market mimic popular gun styles commonly used. Numerous countries have already adapted the use of airsoft and/or airguns in their culture, at a recreational, competitive, and law enforcement level. IASP ranges are easily adapted to the foreign market because of how popular internationally the 10 meter configuration is. Many countries have restrictions over the ownership and use of firearms, often banning the use of firearms overall. IASP provides a steels program to the international market where firearms are not available.
