Essential Airsoft Safety

Airsoft safety should be the number one concern of everyone who uses Airsoft guns. The guns are very safe, but as with conventional firearms the responsibility for Airsoft safety is in the hands of the person possessing the gun. Airsoft guns are real weapons that can injure others if all of the necessary Airsoft safety precautions are not taken. That is why everyone who uses an Airsoft gun must treat it as if it is a real firearm.

No one should ever use Airsoft guns in games with other players without wearing Airsoft safety goggles. The face and especially the eyes have the biggest chance of serious injury. Many players concerned with Airsoft safety wear protective masks as well as Airsoft safety goggles. Because it is possible for an Airsoft BB to cause a welt or break the skin, Airsoft safety also should include wearing long sleeve shirts, pants and boots. There are also many kinds of Airsoft tactical gear, such as vests, which not only protect but have all the pockets in which to stash extra pellets and handguns.

The two rules at the top of the list in Airsoft safety are always treat a gun as if it were loaded and never ever point a gun at someone you do not intend to shoot. Always presume a gun is loaded even if you just unloaded it yourself. You cannot be too careful when dealing with firearms or Airsoft safety, and that includes all types of real, BB and Airsoft guns. Airsoft safety rules require that no one under the age of 16 can purchase an Airsoft gun, unless accompanied by a parent. No one under the age of 16 should fire an Airsoft gun or play Airsoft games unless an adult is present and Airsoft safety precautions have been taken.

Airsoft guns should not be loaded until you are going to fire them and they should never be stored loaded. They also should not be stored where children can get hold of them. More Airsoft safety rules: never play around the house with an Airsoft gun like it is a toy or leave it laying around where others can pick it up. While some state firearms laws consider an Airsoft gun to be a toy, it is a dangerous toy that requires responsibility on the part of the owner and user.

Because Airsoft safety has been of public concern, many cities have banned Airsoft guns in public areas. People have even been killed when police have mistaken an Airsoft gun for a real gun. Airsoft users and collectors love the fact that Airsoft guns are identical in looks and weight to a real gun, but this also makes them appear as real to others and life threatening. In the United States, Airsoft safety now means that every Airsoft gun has to have an orange tip to differentiate it from the real thing. In Canada, concerns for Airsoft safety caused a law to be passed which only allows people to only use Airsoft guns which have clear cases through which all the parts can be seen. That way they cannot be mistaken for the real thing.

Airsoft safety means that you keep the safety on and your finger off the trigger until the moment of firing. But never depend on the safety alone to prevent a gun from firing. You are the ultimate safety for an Airsoft gun or any other weapon.
