HobbyTron's Offers Airsoft Safety Tips
Hobbytron is offering their customers airsoft safety tips in an effort to promote a safer game. Airsoft is a sport that uses dangerous equipment, but if correct safety procedures are followed it is one of the safest sports around.
The first thing anybody should do before purchasing an airsoft gun is familiarize themselves with local laws governing their use. It is everyone’s responsibility to know these laws and follow them.
In all situations outside of an airsoft game, treat an airsoft gun as if it is a real gun. Most real firearm safety rules also apply to airsoft. This means an airsoft gun should transported in a case or bag, and never wielded in a threatening manner. When transporting, make sure the gun’s safety orange tip is attached.
Airsoft guns should be kept unloaded until ready for use. When carrying, the player should keep their finger off the trigger until ready to fire. Never point an airsoft gun at anything you aren’t willing to shoot. And never, ever look down the barrel of an airsoft gun.
Airsoft games should be played on private property, do not play in public places such as schools or parks. Always wear eye protection when playing a game of airsoft, and remember to fire at a safe FPS.
The most important rule in airsoft is to be smart and use common sense. The safety procedures are very simple and easy to follow. Following these rules will prevent injury or legal issues, and insure a fun, safe time is had by all. You can view all the safety information at http://www.hobbytron.com/
