Airsoft Accidents ...

Post by Slipmad » Mon Feb 11, 2013 4:42 pm

As we all know, sometimes accidents happen

while resting the spring in my new MP5, i forgot that there might have been a BB in the barrel, so after i took out the mag and shot it to reset the spring, a BB shot out and resulted in this

so yeah, this is what i get for being careless, anybody else have something similar happen to them before?

Yeah, I've let far too many stupid friends hold loaded, powered guns.

2 bb shots have made their mark on interior drywall in our house, and I quite possibly could've lost an eye when a friend took the gun I handed him, flipped the safety off and shot me in the face. The bb probably hit me .5 cm under my left eye.

Unless I trust the person, I always take the mag and battery out and put it on safety before letting people fondle my stuff. Granted, I'll let people shoot, but I try to maintain some control i.e. not allowing muzzle sweeps.

Let's see...

1. Treat all guns as if they are loaded.
2. Never let your muzzle cover anything you do not intend to shoot.
3. Be aware of your target, and what is beyond it.
4. Keep your finger off the trigger until you are on target and have decided to fire.

Score: 0/4. You get an "F" but at least you are willing to admit it.

Yes, and I absolutely accredit those 3 incidents to being a 11 (or whatever) year old who "never thought it could happen". Anyways, I have learned a very good lesson and am all the better for it, although a less risky one would have sufficed.

Oh, and I should've added that none of the incidents were negligible. Quite the contrary, they were all on purpose :evil:

*Edit* Not sure if that was directed at me, but still applies, Erik
