ok well im going to say something that will make you all hate

i personaly dont think airsoft hurts.. it stings for a minute but it dosnt hurt
(390fps at 12ft back of caff bleeding shot.. stung didnt hurt)

paint ball hurts... leaves large "volcano" shape welts
(290fps at 12ft zippered up spine... i couldnt sleep on my back.. getting flanked sucks)

thats just my experience

I don't even wear ballistic goggles, just a pair of ANSI Z87+ rated safety glasses. Been shot in the face and lips a few times and yeah it sucks, but so do full face masks.

In fact most of the Manitoba players only wear safety glasses.

The matter of eye protection is always open to debate. We are all adults (or suppose to be lol) and if they are willing to risk it and the feild allows on there head be it. I regards to availble protection there are many options out there, myself I use rated safty glasses out doors, and Bolle glasses in CQB. I have seen many other types of protection, paintball goggles, paintball goggles with fullmasks, one option I really liked was the "freight train" style mask. They simply chop most of the mask away until your left with a freight train grill covering the teeth. This allows for improved heat dissapation and also allows for clear communication, ease of use with mics and affords a fair amout of protection. Clothing and body armor ad a level realism to the game and also have a practical use on the feild. Does it take away from the game, I say no, IMHO it adds a level of difficulty to the game. It empasies the need of well placed shots, not just a "spray and pray" format. Plus sometimes when you have new people that may get over excited, it helps prevent "accidents" from happening and from people getting teeth removed with a fist. lol Just my opinions

Insurance claims adjuster, librarian, newspaper editor...all people would could simulate if we didnt want to get hurt.
No matter how you cut it, airsoft is a dangerous game. We shoot guns at each other.
If someones doesnt want to get hurt, its called a videogame or laser tag.

Live the pain, love the pain.
