Airsoft shotguns and the ins and outs of gun safety
Airsoft shotguns are typically safer than other
pellet rifles, but
there are still many rules of gun safety that you must follow with one
of these weapons. Even though the ammunition for airsoft shotguns
cannot usually pierce one’s skin, it can still do damage to eyes,
nose, mouth, and ears. Gun safety rules should be followed with these
models just as they should for any other weapon.
Airsoft shotguns are safer than regular BB guns and rifles because
they are loaded with a larger, 6mm plastic pellet rather than the smaller
metal BBs. The ammunition is also much lighter and does not have the
velocity of a normal round. Still, following basic common sense gun
safety rules is important. Don't aim the airgun (loaded or unloaded)
at anyone. Never look into the barrel for any reason. And keep it
safely out of the reach of young kids.
Airsoft shotguns are mostly about swagger and intimidation among the
war gamers crowd. They have a short range of accuracy and can't do
much damage for your team unless you find yourself in close quarters.
But they look cool and give the shooter a sense of cockiness!
Although many recreational shooters
addicted to war games more and more prefer electric machine gun styles
because they can spray a wide target area quickly, airsoft shotguns
are still used pretty frequently. Gun safety rules for these staged
combat games are mandatory and include the wearing of thick clothes,
shooting glasses, and even masks.
