What is Action Air?
IPSC Action Air follows the same principle of IPSC, using airsoft guns instead of real firearms. The ranges, paper targets and poppers are scaled down to suit airsoft, and the sport enjoys popularity. Action Air was adopted by IPSC in 2008 at the General Assembly following the IPSC Handgun World Shoot XV in Bali, Indonesia, and the first approved rule book came in 2009.
Up until then, the sport had already been exercized in Japan, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan for more than ten years, and is now spreading all over the world. This style of shooting is of particular benefit to youth, because it gives them the opportunity to develop personal discipline and a respect for firearms.
The first world’s IPSC Action Air World Shooting Championship will be held in Hong Kong from 29 June to 3 July 2018. For more information, please click here.
