I’ve been playing airsoft for a long time and, when I got started, one of my biggest complaints was that if paintball’ers could have grenades why can’t airsoft’ers have something similar as well?! Now if I remember correctly, the Tippman paintball grenades that I used to use cost $7 when I still played paintball, and that’s a one-time use grenade! Nowadays, these same Tippman grenades go for around $15!!!
So to be clear, you had to be very sure you were gonna get a kill with a paint grenade or at the very least scare the bejeezus out of somebody, otherwise you were out $7 with no actual effect…and that’s embarrassing.
Over time, grenades were developed for airsoft but just about every product put out to market had varying degrees of success until two very important products came out which, in my humble opinion changed the game…
