A while ago I joined and covered an airsoft game held in Järvenpää. The game was organized by Järvenpää-airsoft association.
Airsoft is, briefly explained, an outdoor sport, wherein most commonly two teams compete to “eliminate” the other team by shooting them with small plastic pellets with a diameter of six millimetres. Unlike paintball, the airsoft pellets don’t leave any paint marks, thus relying in the honesty of players. And that’s where the sport holds its appeal – everybody is honest.
In Finland, airsoft games are mainly run by small associations set up by voluntary enthusiasts, such as Järvenpää-airsoft association, which organizes the games on a weekly basis.
