400 FPS isn't a whimsical number. We didn't go; "Let's figure out what'll injure us, and then back it off a little". You can be hurt from far less depending on a vast number of variables. We should all know the rules, and the risks.
-I've been shot at 15 feet away with 500 FPS and it barely left a mark.
-At 400 FPS getting hit in the knuckle, ear, nose, etc will hurt like bitch regardless.
-At 380 I've seen a BB break a weapon sight.
-At 360 I've seen one get stuck in someones face.
-At 300 I've seen in shatter someones tooth.
With a 0.20g BB, 400 is 400 is 400, regardless of platform. If using using a gas system chrono with the BB weight being used to ensure joule regs are met. And wear the safety gear. No mask, head, or throat guards = no right to complain.
ďREALITY IS LIKE A STONE. TO MANY ITíS HARD AND COLD, THEY CANíT HUG IT OR EAT IT, IT ONLY FRUSTERATES THEM AND DOESNíT DO THEM MUCH GOOD. TO OTHERS ITíS STRONG AND DEPENDABLE, YOU CAN BUILD WITH IT, BUILD UPON IT, OR WORK WITH IT, ALSO USE IT TO SMASH PEOPLE IN THE FACE.Ē
