First One Shot

I have been hearing a bunch of stuff about the "manly" rule of Airsoft: As the owner of a new gun, you MUST be the FIRST one shot with said gun. Was wondering if this was a widespread thing and if you guys had heard of it before.

Cheers,

John

I've heard of it. More of "You have to be shot with your airsoft gun at least once sometime".

You buddies are messing with you...don't be an idiot.

You buy an AEG to shoot other people...

Honestly...there is still an education system in place isn't there?

lol, who kowns anymore. The media is this generations major inluence and education.

As for being shot first. I never heard of that rule, but did ask one of my friends to shoot me at 15 feet when I first got my AEG to have a respect for it.

It'd be fun if we could convince some people of this in the real steel world , that'd help sort out the should and should not have PAL people.

Im one town where I played, any underage players (16 & 17) needed parental consent. They also have to come out to one of the games and get shot with an airsoft gun so they know how it feels and what their kid will be doing lol.

I always thought if you got shot by your own gun you were doing something very, very wrong

sometimes we do this for people with hot guns, 400FPS AEGs, 500FPS boltactions and what not.

its mainly to make the user realize what their gun is capable of, so that they would put more mind to safety.

I typically shoot myself with my gun to decide how bad it hurts. A marushin mossberg m500 on propane with .34g pellets to the leg really hurts while a tm aep doesnt :P
