It’s that time of year again! The leaves are changing, the weather is cooling off, and Halloween is just around the corner.
For airsoft players, that means it’s time to break out the tactical gear and head to the nearest airsoft field for some spooky fun. But before you do, we wanted to remind everyone of the annual Airsoft Halloween PSA – stay safe, and please, no airsoft guns on the streets!
Regardless of how vibrant you can make your pistol, this is a severe problem that degrades Airsoft as a sport, which is why serious players and Airsoft professionals lose their reputation every year.
No Airsoft Guns
Halloween is a time for fun and games, but it’s also a time when people can get hurt if they’re not careful. Every year we see reports of people being injured by airsoft guns that were mistaken for real firearms. In most cases, these accidents could have been avoided if the person carrying the gun had taken a few simple precautions.
How to stay safe this Halloween?
The safest tip is not to go out with your airsoft rifle, except if you go to an Airsoft theme Halloween party.
Here are a few tips to help you stay safe this Halloween season in case you go to Airsoft Halloween PSA event:
- If you’re carrying an airsoft gun, make sure it’s brightly colored and clearly marked as an airsoft gun. Orange tips are required by law in many countries, so be sure to check your local regulations.
- If you’re wearing a costume that covers your airsoft gun, make sure to leave the orange tip visible. This will help ensure that people know it’s not a real gun.
- Never point your airsoft gun at anyone, even in jest. Remember, even though it’s not a real gun, it can still cause serious injury if used improperly.
- When in doubt, leave your airsoft gun at home. It’s not worth risking your safety or the safety of others just to carry a toy around with you.
Safe and happy Halloween
Airsoft guns are not toys and should not be used as such. They can cause serious injury, both to the player and bystanders.
If you’re planning on dressing up as an airsoft character for Halloween, please ensure that your costume is safe and doesn’t involve any airsoft guns. We don’t want any accidents this Halloween, so please be safe!
