Being Safe in Airsoft

Updated on December 29, 2012

Basic Safety Tips

There are some basic safety tips that you can follow when playing airsoft to ensure that nobody gets hurt and everybody finishes the game without any harm. Many people brush off safety, but when an accident happens, suddenly it is the number one priority. Avoid any misfortune by being proactive and taking action before a crisis occurs.

  1. Wear Protective Gear - That means a full face mask and, if you are male, a cup. Getting hit in the face or groin is not a pleasant experience, and in rare cases it can leave permanent damage.
  2. Agree On the Rules - Before starting the game, make sure players on both sides know the rules well. That means the minimum distance that you can shoot from, and when you get any closer, you must call for a surrender.
  3. Play in a Safe Area - Playing in a car-filled, populous neighborhood is not a good idea, as even though you might be fine, others and their personal property could be endangered.

By following this advice, you can ensure that you will never get hurt playing airsoft.

Getting Affordable Safety Gear

Protecting yourself does not have to be an expensive endeavor. There are many ways you can protect vital parts of your body without spending much money. In fact, for less than the cost of a single, cheap airsoft gun, you can get all the safety gear you will ever need.

The primary thing you need to acquire is a mask. Technically, this is the only thing you really need, as getting hit in the eye could permanently blind you. Other than that, all other parts of the body recover fairly quickly, although as mentioned above, males would probably do well with a cup.

You can get a cheap face mask for about ten dollars. These masks have straps to secure them to your head, and they are durable enough to last for a long time. As you can see, being safe is quite easy, and putting off purchasing safety gear can only hurt you.

Save Phace Airsoft Masks

If you want to get a really nice looking airsoft mask, and not just one that will give you the protection so desperately wanted, then Save Phace is what you are looking for. These masks are stunningly designed and look beautiful, and because there are so many types of them, there is sure to be one that fits your personal style.

All of the Save Phace masks are unique and even have cool names, like Scar Phace, Ghost Stalker, and Diablo. They all have the potential to instill fear in the hearts of your enemies while protecting your eyes from the relentless assault of airsoft pellets. The only downside is that they are $50 compared to the normal $20-$30 that a regular mask is, but if you are really trying to go hard in your airsoft games, then these masks are for you.
