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.
