Joule creep is a phenomenon that happens in airsoft that effects how ‘powerful’ your airsoft gun is. It’s a dangerous thing that can leave your airsoft gun being too powerful to use, or even illegal under the latest UK Law.

Our recent blog about the changes to the UK’s airsoft laws (link to ‘everything players need to know’ blog), we covered everything that players need to know about the new laws.
