What is airsoft training?
Airsoft training is a tactical simulation using real scale firearms that use a 6mm plastic projectile making it safe for live firearm combat scenarios. Participants take part in training scenarios, where with the use of an Airsoft rifle or firearm is used to engage other participants. Airsoft uses 6mm solid plastic projectile, which can be fired at a speed of up to 380FPS ( feet per second ). Because it is a non-marking projectile, no contact is shown, but Airsoft relies on the honour system where participants call themselves out once they have felt contact on their body, gear or gun.
Does airsoft hurt?
Airsoft BB’s are designed not to break skin and hurt much less than the impact of a paintball. Because they are much smaller and lighter than paintballs, they carry less force. Across greater distances, that energy is greatly reduced and can amount to no more pain than a good flick would have. That being said, close engagement distances can yield hits at much higher velocities and can cause a pretty good sting. It is good to wear loose clothing and to reduce the amount of exposed skin to avoid any nasty welts.
What should I wear to play?
You don’t need to be intimidated by the guys who look like Navy SEALS; Airsofting can be done in as little as a good pair of jeans and a hooded sweatshirt. The important thing is to be comfortable for your training experience. Footwear with good ankle support is highly recommended to avoid sprained or twisted ankles. Tripping can be an issue as you run and dodge fire in unfamiliar environments.Gloves with ample dexterity are also a good idea. Some face masks may also reduce your visibility.
Is Airsoft messy?
No paint means no mess! Don’t worry about wearing ugly coveralls.
What do I need to bring?
Many airsofters will bring their own rifles and firearms but Siege Airsoft has a full suite of rental equipment from Rifles, Grenades, Body Armour, Face Masks, and more. All you need to bring is yourself and your awareness.
What is your FPS limit?
All airsoft guns must shoot under 380 Feet Per Second, on a .20 BB to meet our safety standards.
If there is no paint, how do you know you are hit?
When you are “HIT” in airsoft you will feel and very often hear the contact of the BB’s on your body and gear. If you do not immediately feel the hit, the individual shooting will likely continue to engage until the hit is recognized. Once you realize, you MUST call yourself out. To do so, raise your firearm above your head, stand up and walk slowly out of the live area. Always remember, when in doubt, call yourself out.
Can I bring my own firearms?
Yes, Siege Airsoft allows participants to bring their own firearms to play. All firearms ( even secondaries like pistols and shotguns ) are subject to staff approval before being allowed to be used on the training field. All firearms MUST meet our <380FPS field limit and MUST be Chronographed before use on the field EACH visit. Chronograph tags are only valid for the day that they are issued. No untagged firearms will be allowed for use on the field. Make sure to present your valid Chronograph tag to field marshals as you enter the live area.
How should I transport my firearms?
Players MUST conceal firearms while in transit! Rifle and pistol bags and cases are available at many sporting goods and airsoft specialty retailers. Use them. It’s the LAW.
Can I bring my own BB's?
Of course you can! However the use of Bio-degradable and Bio-inert ( SILICA ) BB’s is not allowed on the field. Due to the nature of Bio-degradable BB’s which may shatter with close engagement distances, they are not permissible for use at our facility. Save them for your outdoor OPS.
I have Ski Goggles, can I use them?
We are upset you even asked us that! Save them for the slopes Tad Mikowsky. But seriously, Ski Goggles or other eye protection that does not meet or exceed ANSI Z87.1 rating CANNOT be used at our facility. You can bring your own eye protection, but it must be FULL SEAL and also meet our standards to be used on field and must be checked by our staff before you enter the field. We reserve the right to refuse entry to the facility to anyone whose eye protection does not meet these standards.
