I asked because I remembered a post a ways back regarding someone else wanting to buy a sniper rifle. Someone told him you were not allowed (on some fields) to fire at someone at less than X meters away since the high muzzle speed might injure someone.

And why would you need a spotter if you can't hit anything further than 200m anyways?
It's 500 FPS OR a certain Joule limit.

To get an airsoft to that limit with a .2 gram BB you'd need to be shooting 720 FPS
