Frequently Asked Questions

What is Gelsoft?

GelSoft is a safer modern alternative to airsoft and BB guns. GelSoft is a family friendly and an incredibly inexpensive alternative to nerf guns, airsoft and paintball. GelSoft guns fire ‘gel/water ammo’. The ammo starts out as small absorbent beads that expand when soaked in water, when fired, the ammo easily bursts on low impact. This means they’re safe to use in skirmish battles and target shooting with little to no mess (the ammo dry’s to practically nothing after use).

Is it safe?

Yes! GelSoft guns fire at a much lower velocity and don’t weigh that much so while they can cause a tiny sting, they aren’t dangerous is safety glasses are worn during use.

Is it a BB gun?

No. It fires frangible ammo that pops on impact. Unlike BB guns they shoot at much lower power and don’t hurt anywhere near as much if at all. They are designed to obviously not look like real guns and are considered toys, not weapons.

Can you shoot at people?

Yes, as long as everyone is consenting. Just make sure you wear safety glasses – included with most models which will protect your eyes in the case of a stray shot. You must only shoot at people who have agreed to be shot at!

Does it hurt?

Yes and No, a close-range shot may cause a small stinging sensation and a tiny red mark, but it’s orders of magnitudes softer than airsoft or paintball, doesn’t bruise and is gone in a second. A huge amount of fun!

Do I have to be over 18?

No, these are toys, not replica weapons, they are safe for everyone to use, but children should be supervised, and safety glasses should be worn.

Are they battery powered?

Yes, and a 3-hour charge is all that’s required. A USB charger is supplied with all battery powered GelSoft guns. On some guns such as the Uzi, even if the light on the charger goes out, ensure it's charged for a full 3 hours to make sure it's topped all the way up. 

Can I get spares?

Yes, we have additional ammo, spare batteries and chargers, just let us know and we’ll sort it for you.

Can these fire BB’s?

No, only the supplied GelSoft water ammo.
