Wearing Full Face Protection

I’m one of those guy that hates to get lit up. I have a trauma during my initial airsoft games where I got lit up full-auto up close on the neck in a cqb outdoor field (its the one right by the entrance at Panther). The aftermath was quite bloody. I had to cover up the welts and wounds with those huge kneecap bandaids. All of my friends thought I was hiding a hickey lol. Shame on that guy Ikr? - hence the reason I’ve been wearing full face protection even after 5 years. My go-to setup even on baking hot days are boogie regulators for the eyes, mesh mask for the face, and a shemagh for the neck. Am I being a sissy or should I man up take the hits like a man? Also hows it going everyone?

Wear what makes you comfortable. I personally wear a pair of high coverage ballistic glasses, a lower face mesh mask and hard ear protection. I don't wear anything around my neck usually, but again that's personal preference

Do what I do. Don't get shot.

But seriously, there's a lot of dipshits on the fields looking to inflict pain because it 'pwns in bbwarz'.

Dress accordingly.

If you don't want to have your eyes/teeth/etc shot out, wear the corresponding piece of gear and ignore what others think or say. Protecting yourself is your own responsibility. Personally, I'm always wearing full protection (eyes, face, ears, gloves, helmet indoors) but I tend not to wear a shemagh.

I always wear full-seal and a mesh mask. I don't trust other peoples aim, and taking extra precautions is much cheaper than dental work.
