Safety at ASG
Safety over everything. It used to be said. Sure it's true. Safety in every sport is the basis. Ours and the participants. Especially when it comes to airsoft, or ASG (air soft gun). For the uninitiated it is a team game in which pneumatic electric, gas or spring replicas of firearms are used and plastic balls with a caliber of 6 and 8 mm are shot. This is a game where you should take special precautions. The equipment used for shooting simulates a weapon, so inappropriate behavior can cause you to hurt yourself. What's worse, you can also hurt someone else. Nobody wants to let this happen. That is why we present how to stay safe during a skirmish in airsoft.
The basis of safe gameplay is compliance with the basic safety rules. It is not only body protection that is important. Rules are more important. Check the area where the skirmish takes place. Do not shoot closely. A reasonable distance is between 3 to 15 meters. If the basic rules of health and safety are observed, then fun will be great. Just keep your head down. ASG gameplay equipment can be found at Milworld.pl. These rules should be followed primarily:
- Glasses or goggles – this is an absolute must when it comes to the safety pyramid at ASG. Eye protection is the foundation. Such goggles or glasses should be made of plastic. In addition, they must have approvals, because their task is to protect your eyesight. This is one of the most important senses in the human body. Mesh eye protection is of little use without the goggles underneath. It's best if they protect the eye sockets and eyebrows.
- The face, head and lower abdomen – these are very sensitive points on the human body. During airsoft skirmishes, these body parts are also at risk of damage. A good idea for protecting your face is a mask. The lower abdomen is also worth protecting if you think about children and your health in the future. When it comes to head protection, it's worth thinking about a helmet. All equipment can weigh a little, but what is important is health. It is worth taking care of your own safety, because the effects of inattention can be unpleasant.
- First aid kit – is just as important as a telephone or walkie-talkie. It is worth having it with you, because you do not know what can happen. While playing, you can fall over and hurt yourself. Anything. Even a small cut. It is worth taking care of it immediately. Disinfect the wound and properly protect it. During a serious injury, it is worth informing the organizer about your health by radio. Your safety is the safety of others.
- Knowledge of ASG rules – if you are a participant in a skirmish, you must know them. The replica is treated as a weapon and so it should be stored and moved like one. As for the games themselves. The organizer should properly secure the area. Do not allow third parties on it so that accidental passers-by are not harmed. Potentially hazardous places should be marked. Sometimes threats cannot be avoided. However, especially then you should use common sense.
Failure to follow the rules may pose a danger to all participants of the game. You should not save on health. Stores with ASG equipment often offer low strength products. Therefore, buy only checked equipment. An accidental shot in the eye can create unpleasant effects. Protect yourself from it. It makes no sense to put your health at stake. There is only one thing and you need to care for it. Security is the basis.
