during a night game:
i was laying prone on the ground, someone shot a paraflare overhead, but it hit the top of some trees and fell to the ground, 3 feet in front of me. It popped back up into the air and landed right between my face and my gun, i got up and it followed, the para flare somehow got caught up in my sling and i started shouting, screaming, and spinning around all while the flare was right in my face.
I managed to take my sling off and threw the gun to the ground, everyone playing stopped and my squadmate picked up my gun while the, stil burning, paraflare dangled from the sling.
It didn't damage anything but my sling, and i didn't receive any burns to my body nor my gear.
And that was the most terrifying moment EVER in my history of airsoft.
