Your stupidest (harmless) airsoft mistake

I'm bored, and I figured this might be interesting, just to see what some of the more safety-conscious members have done =) Who knows, maybe some new guy will read this and it'll stop him from doing something dumb.

Here are my two big ones:

1) Target shooting in a spare room with a Glock 18c. We set up a cardboard box and suspended a paper target in the middle with tape at the open end. We were having a great time with the full-auto. Eventually I noticed that the bb's seemed to be recoiling pretty fiercely. When I went to investigate, I found that (hidden behind the chewed up target) the bb's had completely perforated the box. bb's were going through the target, out the back of the box, bouncing off the wall, and coming straight back through the box!

Result: SEVERELY dinged-up wall (counted 70 holes and gave up), trip to home depot for touch-up plaster stuff. Waste of time and money, embarassing explanation to parents (whose place I was living at at the time).

Lesson: if you want to use a cardboard box as a bb trap, put something impenetrable like a piece of carpet in the back so that bb's don't destroy the box.

2) Small game at my cottage with some friends. After careful explanation of rules and safety, one of my friends decided to (for chuckles) unload on another friend at about 6 feet on full auto while they were on the way into the field (they were on the same team, to defend a flag).

Result: big argument. Lots of yelling at the idiot.

Lesson: be really careful who you invite to play airsoft. Even past the magic number 18, people can be immature little pricks.

One time I was inserting a mag into my M11, but when I was on the way to inserting the magazine I some how jammed the edge of the feed lips between the mag well by accident and the resulting slip forced all 50 bb's to eject from the mag. It took me awhile to find and collect those buggers.

i was playing an outdoor game after it had rained and ther is this 20ft dirt pile we call k2 that has a fox hole at the top of it, so ya i was running up to the fox hole under fire, i did a combat roll and misjudged my speed and distance and kinda fell into the fox hole jamming my barrel into the mud effectivly plugging my muzzle. so while they advanced on me i was trying to dig all the mud out witha piece of shrubbery... ya it was my crowning moment.

Hiding out under a fallen over tree while two guys on the opposite team stroll by. The closer one was about 8ft away. Didn't have a Glock cocked, so by the time I managed to get a bb chambered silently they both noticed me.

Awww, that would have been more funny if you tried to fire it without it being cocked and notice then.

Was borrowing my friends gun, and went to jump up, and got an eyelash in my eye. Couldnt see, tripped over a root and landed on the gun breaking it in two.

So I'm flipping out trying to blink something out of my eye that i cant reach due to my mask, while yelling at people to stop shooting while i pick up parts of my friends m16

Making a run for cover behind a car in jungle boots on a slate rock surface while it was raining.
Needless to say it lead me from a verticle stance to a more horizontal one fast and hard lol.

Accidentally popped my mask up at PB Nation, near the field entrance, but still on the field.

Thanks for whoever pointed that out to me, coulda ended very differently. :shock:


Harmless mistake?

Came John Woo style around a corner, only to get the infamous slide lock on my first shot. DOH! :lol:

I was loading some mags in my living room and bag of about 4000 BBs fell all over the floor because my cat knocked it over.

My biggest mistake was thinking I'd only have one AEG and a sidearm. Stupid...stupid...stupid.
