What's a Good Secondary Airsoft Gun?

Learn what's a good secondary gun in this Howcast video featuring airsoft experts Payton Kemper and Josh Meyer.


Hi, my name is Payton. I'm the manager of Airsoft Hero located in the historic district of Hampden in Baltimore, Maryland. And I'm Joshua Meyer. I'm the tech here at Airsoft Hero. Our store features AEGs, accessories, apparel. We also buy used guns, accessories and apparel and we also do quality tech work. Any details you can find on our website at And we'll be talking to you about airsoft. A good secondary gun could be a backup to your primary gun, in case that ever fails during a game. What I would recommend to get is something that uses the exact same magazine. Therefore, you don't have to buy any extra parts to be able to use that gun. Now, you also may be looking for a pistol. That varies, and also depends on what's comfortable in your hand. If you have a small hand, you do not want to get a replica 50 caliber Desert Eagle. It's not going to fit in your hand very well. You're not gonna be able to hold it. Something that you could get would be more along the lines of a Walther P99. The only time you would generally use a pistol is going to be if you run out of ammo shooting at someone. And you need to either reload quickly, or generally, just switch to your pistol. It's a lot faster just to move to your pistol rather than reload the gun that you're currently firing. So it's good to have a pistol on hand. Whether it be on your side, or maybe even on your vest, depending on what kind of vest you get.
