Like I have mentioned before, safety and respect are Airsoft GI’s primary concern. Over the years, I have seen many airsofters (even real steel shooters) neglect the basic firearm safety rules. I have heard statements such as “oh, it’s unloaded,” and “calm down, it’s only an airsoft gun.” Since we are creatures of habit, if we neglect the basic safety rules on airsoft guns (or any replica firearms), those bad habits will transfer to real firearms.
With the airsoft sport growing, along with the replica gun tragedies happening across the nation, there are going to be stricter laws to regulate airsoft. It is up to us (the airsoft community) to inform all airsofters (and their parents) to promote and practice gun safety. It does not matter if it is an airsoft gun, real gun, or even a transparent water gun. Treat all gun shaped objects as if they are real firearms. There are 5 basic life safety rules that all airsofters and real steel shooters must follow.
We have new eye and head protection from Zan Headgear. The Bobster series of light weight, inexpensive, and reliable eye protection are an excellent substitute for high priced designer eyewear. Some models are convertible from glasses to goggles, some have interchangeable lenses, but all of them are designed and tested to protect your eyes from BBs coming from all angles. Also, the ZAN 3 in 1 Head Wrap is a great multi-purpose to protect the wears head or face. This is a great quality piece from Zan Headgear. The print is a custom design from Zan, the edges have been rolled and sewn to prevent fraying, and it’s made form 100% medium weight pre-washed cotton. The 3-IN-1 Head Wrap with Velcro also has polymer crystals to provide hours of cooling relief. Soak the 3-IN-1 cooler in cold water for 10 minutes to activate the cooling crystals and wear as a headband, necktie or skull cap to maximize cooling during hot days and activities. Can be worn 3 different ways and re-used hundreds of times.
Here is a quick video to demonstrate the versatility of the Prowler Convertible:
