Airsoft Insurance – what are the risks?
Airsoft is a sport which involves the use of replica firearms to shoot plastic pellets around six millimetres in length at targets in military situations or during competitive gaming. Most airsoft games take place in the countryside or areas usually off limits as unlike paintball the sport can be played in relative silence. These areas allow participants to make use of the surroundings to camouflage or hide from the opposition.
The high paced nature of airsoft coupled with the often wooded or uneven terrain does present itself to injuries, mostly minor such as cuts and bruises. Dehydration may be a problem during hot days, so players are advised to take on board plenty of fluids.
The minimum safe level of gear required to participate in most games include impact-rated goggles or shooting glasses to protect participant’s eyes. Full face masks are considered the safest form of protection as they also provide cover for the face and teeth. Provided safety gear is used the actual airsoft bullets cause very little damage aside from light bruising.
It is strongly recommended taking out suitable airsoft insurance whilst participating in the sport.
