Blind Firing

Post by Donknottz on Mon Aug 11, 2008 10:05 am

After a great day of airsoft indoors I thought I would bring a safety issue to everyone's attention. When you point your weapon around the corner and shoot without looking, you are endangering other players. I'm going to add this as a permanent rule in our listings unless someone can convince me otherwise. I would like any changes to be made to our group, especially enforced rules, to be discussed and agreed upon as a whole.

My main concerns for blind firing is people getting unloaded on in the face and people physically running into each other. If you shoot blindly around a corner and blast someone from 10 inches away you are not only going to cause harm, but I also think you are being a jerk/coward. I know that it can be very strategic to only expose your hand and get a couple shots off, but we need to encourage safety first. You might say that you are blind firing down a long hallway and they aren't that close to you so it is ok. Well, the fact that you can't see what you are shooting at means that you have no way of knowing for sure. If people want to kill the people on the other side of a wall, tree, bush, or any other barrier; they need to either see where they are shooting or invest in grenades. That is my opinion, what is yours?

I couldn't agree more. The few rules we enforce are all safety related and need to be endorsed by everyone. After all, when all is said and done, who wants to be seriously injured in a game? I can't imagine that there is a logical reason not to immediately enact this rule. It has my full support and will be implemented by B37.

in agreement 100% as well. Also i just want to put in my two cents. Every single thing about the CQB battle that i heard from anyone that was negative in any way had to do with someone blind firing. The worst part is that i heard of at least 5 or 6 different stories from different people who were mad that people werent following the rules and were blind firing. Not to sound like a jerk, but i thought we went over blind firing and kicking in doors as 2 definately against the rules actions before we started playing. I dont know who it was that kicked the door in upstairs at the end of the second bomb battle, but i had been standing behind the door about 30 seconds prior to it getting kicked in and would have been hurt pretty badly had i still been behind it. So even if blind firing is only a day by day rule to be decided based on the location or if it becomes an always no matter where rule, people need to listen and follow ALL of the rules.

im going to agree about 75% on this one... while blind firing can be very dangerous to the indiviual(s) being fired upon, it is also a very good way to immerse yourself in the moment, and if you're in a standoff by yourself against a decent number of enemy combatants i find it a much better way to go down then either running like a pansy or giving up.. PLUS blind firing makes me feel like im playing Army of Two in real life, and i LOVED that totally budget Gears knock off.

p.s. this is all bogus, i am in agreement. i just felt that somebody needed to stick up for blind firing, he seems to have no friends.
