One of my ex-teamate (from another team) had to have a BB surgically removed from his chin.

These are one of my teamates wounds.


400fps


Probably same shooter...

I'll sum up his blog post:

Don't be a fucking idiot with your gun.

Every time these pictures surface, it pisses me off. In what context can they be taken? Was the gun(s) really 400fps or less? How close was the fucktard that did the shooting to his target? What was the actual weight of the bb's being shot? Shit, I've see all of those injuries on the field, even had a few myself. Almost always caused by either:

a) Inexperienced player shooting a gun way too hot for their experience level (remember the fps limit is just that, a limit. It's not a goal) and not having the experience in fire control and target aquisition.

b) An experienced player who, for whatever reason, decides to be an asshole and lights other players up on purpose with a hot gun and at close range.

I've seen both of these happen, shit, in the same game even!

Now there are the occasional rare instances where a fluke injury occurs, but those are very, very rare. If anyhting, I hope this drums home how why we take safety and safe handling practices so seriously. Wearing proper safety gear only goes so far if you have some newbie spraying everything in sight because they're excited or some retard decides to fuck up your day. Damn, I just insulted retards.

Your right. Distance is important.

In my pics, from memory, it was a pretty standard distance, about 125-150fts, BUT, my teamate was wearing only a T-shirt with no hat. It was a huge sand pit in 35 degree heat.

The other pictures are from the phillipines, where velocities are much higher... If it's stated to be 400fps... it must be from CQB... less than 75fts away.

I've seen these kind of wounds done even with a stock AEG (yes it's a Marui), engagement distance and common sense in some players during games sometimes baffles me no matter what their experience is. I have mercied a guy (a loud Bang you're dead) with my stock glock19 from a distance of 3 feet and still get shot, when I ask why the hell did you shoot me for when i just mercied you?? he said that I should have shot him since the game has no mercy rules.........Hmmm i should shoot you in the head (the only thing that was exposed at the time) at 3 feet away??? some players have No fucking clue what a GBB or an AEG can do to you at 10 ft or closer range.

The one advantage that paintball has over airsoft (in terms of safety), is that 99% of paintball players use barrel condoms.

Every time I go to a game, I see people pointing guns at another person (or themself) from 2 feet away and during breaktime.

It's not an advantage when people don't keep control of where their gun is pointed. One day there might be a misfire and the condom slips. Then you're fucked.
