tactical vest and superman

I will probably buy a Tactical Vest soon but i have a question:

I know there is other place we can shoot but i imagine it hurt a lot less on the chest, at the point of do not feel it ? What you're doing guy ? Maybe the sound of a bb hitting your tactical vest is heard ? Shot on the other player's part (legs, hand, arm ...) cause you know he will propbably not feel it ? With a auto airsoft, i wont worry ??

Vests, carriers, and rigs are used for all their purposes but protection. Airsoft does not hurt, if you think so, you probably have pink undies on.

You can still feel the shots with vests on. It doesn't hurt though. It's a combination of hearing it and feeling a small impact. As long as the vest is hugging your body properly.

When you are hit you will either feel it or hear it. If it hits a soft spot, you will feel it, when it hits a hard spot like a vest or a filled pouch, it makes noise and you will hear it and sometimes feel it too. So unless you are shooting from so far away that the BB has virtually no power left in it when it hit, say, the dump pouch on the belt of a player, the player will call the hit.

Seriously, the only place where people sometimes do not feel it is if you hit the pocket where they keep their kill rag with an underpowered gun... anyway, if they don't feel the hit, shoot again, they will figure that they are shoot at quickly enough and call themselves out.

The protection of the vest is great in CQB though, especially in games with no freezes or MED. A vest will absorb hits from point blank, so if you are in such a game and you shoot from very very close, aim for the vest.
