Bah, I put 330 when I meant to put 350.

Nomex ones are okay. Personally I just wear glasses and my shemagh is up and over my mouth to eliminate possible dental incidents.

Yeah, I wear a bandanna over my face like a cowboy (I think it looks funny) to protect my teeth, and it's served me for two years with several direct tooth hits through it. Thin cloth actually does absorb a lot of momentum if it's got air under it.
When I'm getting up close and personal, I make a point of curling my lips in to tense the muscle and brace for impact (which has saved me from incident a few times) and I've also taken things to chew on the field to keep me from opening my mouth absently. (gum, fruit snacks, and jerky work well and fit in flat pouches)

yeah really this is the whole point here if your worried wear a mask and a helmet if you dont want to get hit...or just play laser tag...no wonder everyone thinks airsoft is nerdy and for pussies, everyone cries about getting hit with BB's and thats the name of the fucking game!
It's also about milsim, 're-enacting', using strategy manouvers, if you want a game where the point is to shoot hard stuff at each other, that's what paintball is for.

As I've said on other forums, I'm ok with 350, depending who I'm playing with. Is some guy going to hold a pistol to my chest and shoot? Is there going to be blindfiring and people with no muzzle control? If that's the case I'd want a low fps, as there's no reason to have high fps in a CQB environment.

Keep in mind, the School CamoGames has is really tight, really close quarters most of the time. Average engagements was about 5-10 feet last time I was there.

lol, so true gene:P. for everyone else, like in other posts discussed, its not about the pain. if pain is an issue, i recommend talking to some girls i know how to deal with getting shot by airsoft guns higher then 350:P

Also, studies show that men have a higher pain tolerance on the exo layer of the body while women have a higher pain tolerance within the body. so, in conclusion if a girl can take the heat theres no need to discuss the "pain" issue.

based on responses in the other thread Al, you should consider changing the poll just a bit.

There's a difference between 350 fps semi-only and 350 full-auto

sorry to have to throw in another monkeywrench into your research

Funny thing is, there's hardly any advantage in having a gun shoot 350FPS.

At a range of 75 feet, a gun shooting a 0.2gBB at 350FPS will reach it's target ~0.09 seconds faster than a one shooting at 280FPS.

I'm probably being very generous for using a range of 75 feet, in which case even shorter engagement distance basically makes the advantage of higher FPS negligible, if isn't already.

So lets say 350 was for bbs...

What are we looking at in terms for 12 inch long phallic shaped projectiles?

Yes, I guess I did make a mistake by not putting those options out there.

I was *assuming* it would be semi only.

I need girth so I can calculate friction of air!

About an inch worth of girth give or take.
Roughly 300g. At at about 9 fps you get about 1.12 joules of energy,
And 3 million kinds of awesome for hitting your opponent in the face. Extra props if their mouth was open.

Only a count of 3 million?

Dude, that's low!
