Exclamation Read this and learn from my stupid mistake!!!

Alright folks I'm probably gonna get some flack over this but I figure it will be worth it it I can help someone stay safe.

I got home from work and my new (used) shiny gas shotgun was waiting for me. I bring it into the kitchen and cut open the packaging. Wow its heavy, full metal, feels good. I pick it up and look it over, turning it all around and admire my new toy. BLAM!!! my finger carelessly fondles the trigger, putting dents in my ceiling. The gun was shipped gased up with bb's in it. In fact it was cocked too.

The lesson: Never assume your gun is on safe, verify it. Always treat your airsoft it like a real firearm. While my gun was oriented towards the ceiling I could have caught a ricochet to the face or eye. Don't be a dumb ass like me. And never look down the barrel of you guns either.

Yup, wouldn't have happened if you were following safe handling rules. Mainly "gun is always loaded" and "keep your finger out of the trigger guard".

THE VITAL FOUR ACTS OF FIREARMS SAFETY

A* Assume every firearm is loaded.
C* Control the muzzle direction at all times.
T* Trigger finger must be kept off the trigger and out of the trigger guard.
S* See that the firearm is unloaded - PROVE it safe.

PROVE

P* Point the firearm in the safest available direction.
R* Remove all cartridges.
O* Observe the chamber.
V* Verify the feeding path.
E* Examine the bore.

I'm sure you mean with .28. Becuase if that's 300 with .48, that some substancial power for a close range weapon.

Since when do they make .28 in 8mms? I don't use it for CQB anyways thats why i have my Type 97b much smaller and more maneuverable, anyways the shotgun just for shits and giggles more then anything else lol
