Is Airsoft an expensive hobby?

Airsoft is a relatively affordable hobby compared to other shooting sports (Real firearms, Paintball, Archery etc). The cost of an entry-level paintball marker can be in the region of £199 to £270. A comparable airsoft gun could be in the region of £80 to £150 – If you look at the cost of the ammunition for example 2000 Valken Graffiti Paintballs are £39.95 (1.9p per shot) and are very sensitive to weather conditions and need to be stored correctly (turned on a regular basis), however, 5000 Valken Accelerate 0.20g bb’s are only £9.95 (0.01p per shot).
