Airsoft. What a Newbie Needs to Know

Strikbol (translated from English Strike-Blood and Ball-Ball)-Modern Popular Military Sporting Team game using pneumatics (whose muzzle should not exceed 3 J) and plastic balls with a caliber of 6 to 8 mm, various By weight.

The main type of weapon is an electrical weapon, which received the name “drive”. There are weapons on CO2 and models in which the spring is built using muscular force (spring rifles). As a rule, two or more teams participate in the games. Strikeball games allow you to plunge into the plot, which can unfold in various territories and training grounds, thereby the player is involved in the military conflict, which proceeds according to a certain scenario. The Straykbol notes a high degree of copying of the troops of the current military units around the world. The game is conducted on honesty, while there are restrictions on weapons (mainly according to the speed of the ball).

Pain during the game

The most intriguing theme of all newcomers in strikbole is how painful it will be from a ball from airsoft weapon.

After the third or fourth game, this issue, as a rule, is automatically removed due to the fact that you will understand that there is nothing wrong with the patient in the ball. It is important to observe the most important rule when playing airsoft – in no case to remove the goggles, even if they are instilled or you suddenly combed your eye. Getting into the eye is always fraught with injuries, at best, this may end in a trip to a local emergency room.

Now in pain from hits in different parts of the body. The sensations depend on the distance with which they shoot at you and on the speed of the ball. We take the speed of the ball for 120-130 m/s (basic tun) and describe the sensations obtained experimentally.

Part of the body less than 5 m from 15 to 30 m over 30 m
Head, forehead very painful hurt It doesn't hurt
Face without a mask very painful very painful hurt
Neck hurt significantly It doesn't hurt
Breast, back significantly It doesn't hurt It doesn't hurt
Arms significantly It doesn't hurt It doesn't hurt
Legs (hips) very painful hurt It doesn't hurt
5th point hurt hurt hurt
Hit the helmet Bookpiece By weapons Another subject of equipment through a thick layer of clothing
It doesn't hurt It doesn't hurt It doesn't hurt depends on a situation It does not hurt more often

But the most painful and offensive hit by phalanges of fingers or nails is very painful.
Again, the pain lasts no longer than 5-10 seconds, then everything goes away.

The authors of National Airsoft Magazine decided to conduct a native experiment without regretting his colleague for him.

The results are obvious, and they, frankly, discourage. The easier the ball, the greater the marks it leaves on the skin when shooting point blank. The most bloodthirsty is the 0.12th, the most peaceful – 0.28th.

The conclusion is simple – you want to save colleagues, use heavier balls for rooms.

Keep in mind that most often the game takes place in buildings, so it is important to choose a suitable color. For example, for myself, I picked up a dark shape – in the building I am less noticeable, which gives a great advantage.

Glasses are an obligatory attribute of equipment, they should be able to withstand a blow from a powerful striking weapon, and such a collision will certainly be held sooner or later. I advise you not to take mesh glasses in order to avoid the hit of the balls through the holes. A protective mask or arafat is desirable for playing in buildings, they will keep your teeth. Remember, security is in the first place!

Closed tactical goggles and mesh mask with steel mesh, withstand any airsoft balls at any speed

Crites and solar bones. During the game you have to move and fall a lot, and, you see, injuries are far from the most pleasant thing. Do not forget about protective gloves. The main thing is that knee pads, gloves, and so -bones are convenient and have protective functions. If possible, purchase a helmet, you can subsequently hang a lantern and other convenient little things on it.

Weapons for strikbola outside are like a fighting one. The assortment is huge, both the main weapon and gaming pyrotechnics. You can choose for every taste.

A very important thing is a vest. It will provide you with the convenience of carrying additional equipment and magazines, as well as secondary weapons. The vest should not hinder your movements, at the same time the vest should have the ability to quickly access the pouches in order to save you time during the battle.
