Where does one acquire these silica BBs? I can't find any mention of them on BBB's website.

I would like to test them out. The extra punch would be good for cans and targets.

I don't think they are out yet. A bunch of us got samples from TAC10 to test them out.

Oh cool.

I was worried that they came out and then got pulled from the market before I could get in on the fun.

edit: Scarecrow - feel free to send me a sampler.

Update on supply:

I thought they came in with the Claybank 2010 BBs (which BTW, are on their way to Amos in Winnipeg, should arrive next week), but they were shipped separately. The Silicas are on the dock at the Port of Vancouver and are flagged for inspection, I understand I should have a release by Tuesday and add a week of transport to me, I should see them sometime late next week.

Everything come to me out of POV appears to be getting inspected up the whazzoo. Not sure why.

Anyways, they're arrival is imminent.

So are they going to be clear or coloured? Would be nice if they're brightly colour (both to discourage use in airsoft game as well as finding them when you dont want glass around)

Clear!

Don't color them. Clear is as distinctive as they get - find a few clears bouncing off walls around you and there'll be no confusion.

The clear factor is most of the appeal anyway - it's not like the glass breaking feature is all that useful, and they're not the only .28g BBs around.

If you don't want them used at your field, tell the players and they'll respect that.
If they don't respect that, then maybe you should reconsider why you let them come to your field.

I honestly don't know what the problem is for gaming, unless you're worried about breaking some on-field glass or optics.

From what we've heard so far, they're goggle safe. That's not saying that no further testing should be done, but we shouldn't rule them out so quickly.

If they won't break, they might also be a safer option for fields who use mesh screen goggles, as those leave the eyes vulnerable to shattered plastic BBs.

Goggles, they're but not skin. If every shot will draw blood Im sure some people won't like that...I personally don't want scars for life from a game.

I taken a few shots to the brain with silica BBs Via pusangani and his bloody hicappa, but nary a scratch, mind you they stung like a bitch, but who goes to get shot and doesnt think itll hurt?

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

I have seen blood from normal .25's its part of playing the game...

if something is being shot at you you have to expect the worse.... NO?
