The spring air soft guns can only fire a single shot at a time and must be cocked to again and again if one wants to fire more than one shot. In simulated combats where the enemies may appear in groups, using a Spring Airsoft gun can be a major handicap, especially if the shooter is slow in cocking the gun.

Not only there is a question on reliability but of safety as well when it comes to pressurized canisters being used in extreme weather conditions.
