How To Make Money Airsofting

Postby Waklum » Sun Aug 03, 2008 3:34 pm

People make a living off winning (console/pc) gaming competitions, give it time maybe airsoft will go higher :)

I think the way paintball succeeds is that it's considered a sport, so people sponsor paintball teams while having these teams advertise their sponsors. That way, when people go to certain paintball games, they'll be hit by subliminal advertising.

As for airsoft, this sort of idea may be a pretty long shot.....

An issue is just that airsoft isn't considered a sport to the general population. The guns are too realistic. If a kid sees an airsoft game on TV, and sees people shooting each other which what looks like real guns, then the kid may go grab his mom or dad's gun and shoot other people with it, not realizing that what he sees on TV is airsoft, and not real steel. Meanwhile, paintball is, and I quote Flowers, "a bunch of clowns shooting each other with grapes"; it looks harmless enough with all the protection that people are wearing, the guns don't look real, and you see paint...lots and lots of paint.

So, since you have a team already on the road of being sponsored, good for you, but it's still difficult for a bunch of other groups out there.

Besides, blackeagle, which area are you in?

Some people build guns for others, some people hosts events, and maybe just maybe some people will get together someday and make a official rule or sanctions and then host a **** good event every 2 weeks or so ( with prices, etc. for competing teams and individuals ) maybe some day ? right now manufacturers barely support stores let alone fields and teams/individuals.

My "quote" was not the basis of my view, but the basis of allllllll the viewpoints of the dumbass parents/sheeple/"adults" out there. I'm not against the idea of having airsoft games be broadcasted on TV or any other sort of media. But OTHER PEOPLE/SHEEPLE DO CARE. These "other people" is the main reason why airsoft is so dead in the water on a bunch of issues. These "other people" is the reason why airsoft is so restricted/banned/denied/illegal. Was I providing an unreasonable sheeple reason? Hell no. This is truly how sheeple think.

(sheeple - defined as people that are unreasonably scared of weapons of any sort; in this case, the weapon being defined are "airsoft guns")

Right, and I agree. My post wasn't meant to be any type of personal attack, I just used your example to point out my opinion.

Hopefully though, I answered some questions on my 4th point.

Some people can be really dense... You know there is a such thing as paint bbs that work well enough to be used professionally. Plus they come in a variety of different colors so team play would be simple. You people obviously have no idea how easily it could become more than it is. People are constantly getting into it. Even more already play. And given the proper marketing a new popular sport can be born. Plus it is, according to the dictionary, a sport.

http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/sport see? Its already technically a sport. Just not as well known as football, basketball, baseball, etc.
