Ok, let me make this clear: YOU CAN'T ORDER F**KING GUNS FROM THE UNITED STATES.

You can order guns from here:
www.buyairsoft.ca
here:
www.007airsoft.com
and here:
www.aasurplus.ca

That's it. Any questions? No? Good. Start reading some more and stop telling people bad information.

I am relaxed. I just had a nice mug of hot chocolate while I watched Mythbusters (apparently you're safe from a Barret .50 if you're two and half feet under water...). I just wanted to make sure I was clear in my point.

which channel? (nevermind, I've seen this one)

Starbucks hot chocolate is pretty good because of one secret I know from working there; Add vanilla syrup. Not to much, in a 14 oz cup about a tea spoon is enough. It makes it taste so much smoother.

Unless you live in a god forsaken communist hellhole that belives that safety margins are just a capitalist ploy, you want safety gear to go above the requirements, not just meet them. Do you think paintball masks are rated to only protect up to 300 fps?

I'm not saying shop glases aren't going to stop some things, I'm just saying it's not the appropriate tool for the job.

I'm pretty sure that a kevlar helmet is sufficient to protect me on a construction site. It doesn't have the appropriate ANSI rating however.

If I take my M frames as an example again:
http://oakley.com/innovation/optical...act_protection

I've been told by an Oakley rep that the lense will stop a 12 guage buckshot at 30 feet. Even if this is exagerated, I've seen enough testimonials from real world operator saying their Oakleys saved their eyes from IEDs or debris blasts.

HOWEVER, since my M frame doesn't offer secure wrap around straps, I won't field them for airsoft, since I expect to get shot in the face every now and again, and a slipping lense would suck.

Unless your shop glasses offer secure wrap around, buy a paintball mask. Even if you shop glasses offer wrap around, buy a paintball mask.

USE THE RIGHT GOD DAMNED TOOLS FOR THE JOB!

You cannot entirely waive your rights via a waiver. It's been documented on ASC, so search around.

surebet, i get what your saying, and i totally agree that your eyes are worth protecting and if i wasnt 200% sure that i would be safe with my glasses, then you bet i would shell out more money to get tactical wraparounds. (by the way, my glasses are wraparounds). bottom line, shop glasses are made to stop bits of hot steel, therefore im comfortable wearing them. if you feel like they wont do the job or your playing with higher fps and your not sure then (even I would) shell out the money for higher rated glasses. your eyes are the top importance when playing as far as safety goes.

I don't think shop glasses are designed to stop bits of crap moving at 350 fps...

Why is it such a problem? If you're cheaping out on a gun, you've got a good $300 for goggles

Yes. Bits of hot steel, coming from directly at your face on a level plane.

BB's however, come from all sort of fucked up angles, from above and below, slightly behind and in a very dynamic enviroment where you are moving and possible brushing into people and things.

While in a shop you can turn off the machine and everything is safe when it stops moving, unless you are off the field in the safe zone, you can't just stop everything and everyone at an instant whim.


Bottom line. Get the right tools for the right job. Sure your kevlar vest can stop a bullet but it won't do much for a knife.

lol, why would i come crying to you for shooting my eyes out. your not that special

and the glasses thing. I don't think that some of these people are actually contributing to the conversation and are instead just trying to create some conflict.

Basically, i trust my glasses and right now I'm not financially in a position to go and get $300 glasses. And like I said, I play outdoors with a few friends out on an acreage and not at meets, but sometimes I make it into the city to play an indoor game therefore I can just stop the game when I want. But I'm glad you all seem so concerned for my well being .
