Starting In Airsoft
In addition to sharing insight on my adventures in the game, I feel that it is only in good standing and faith as a player to help those out there who are interested in taking that first step into 410 bore ammo for sale Airsoft.
Let me start out with a few simple yet always in effect rules of thumb. As lifelike as situations may become, Airsoft is a game and a sport. The equipment used to play the game is centered and situated on firearms that are closely if not exactly modeled like their real life counter parts. As such, they should not be brandished, flashed, waved around or used threateningly in view of the public. Such behavior is likely to be more than enough cause for an unsuspecting civilian to mistake your actions and call the police.
On that note, should you at any point come in contact with the authorities during gameplay, IMMEDIATELY CEASE GAMEPLAY AND DROP YOUR WEAPON! There is no worse situation than going off to your first match and telling your mom you’ll be perfectly fine, only for her to find out that you’ve had a bad, or worse fatal, run in with the police. Airsoft guns are BB guns which falls under the category firearms. Therefore, rules and safety guidelines for firearms apply when handling Airsoft guns at all times.
The other important safety rule that is always in effect is the wearing and full use of eye protection. Whenever you decide to play, wear a pair of protective eyewear. These BBs that are being fired are coming at you on average with decent guns around 315-400 fps (feet per second). Take that into account along side the fact that not everyone you play with has exceptional aim, and your looking at projectiles rocketing very close to your eyes.
Bottom line, eye wear is a must. And on that note, proper eye wear must be used; no cheap science kit goggles, no saw dust screens from that toolbox in the garage, and especially not regular glasses. I myself wear glasses and have used them during matches. I lucked out, BIG TIME. I was hit twice on each lens and one hit just above the top rim. I was lucky that they didn’t shatter. You may luck out like I did, but are you ready to take that chance?
