Airsoft related shooting in Irvine, CA

Irvine, CA: Boy got shot
Very serious update from MadBull (and Stryke Airsoft). No new products, just news about consequences of stupidity. Be sure to check the full statement under Read. Due to gravity of this news, it will be sticky for day or two:

This is MadBull.

I got a message from Stryke Airsoft. They are located in Orange County, CA.

Yesterday, something terrible just happened in UC Irvine. (In Orange County) My wife is working at UC Irvine and she was in campus at that time. She can totally feel the fear and the whole accident was caused by a Airsoft player holding AEG at school.

News link here [link broken]

Claudio, from Stryke Airsoft want me help him to post this statement.

Hope all Airsoft players can enjoy this sport without causing trouble to themselves and to the Airsoft communityÖ

Boy got shot!
With the ever growing popularity of the airsoft community we canít afford to forget the basics. Lately there was an officer involved shooting on a 15 years old boy when he was brandishing an airsoft gun on his bike. Although the gun had an orange tip, it was pointed at the officer and he was subsequently shot for it. (May 11th, 2009)

Gunman hold Airsoft in UC Irvine campus!

May 21st, 2009, another recent incident was a report of a ďmilitary lookingĒ man on the UCI campus walking from building to building with a rifle while dressed in desert military fatigues. There was an alert posted on the news as well as UCI alerts that go directly to studentís cell phones (This is something that is completely unacceptable and that should NEVER happen). The more incidents like this the more airsoft will slowly become more and more regulated and eventually completely illegal.

Remember that this sport is currently frowned upon by many groups because of the realistic look and action of the guns. It also doesnít help that most airsofters remove the required orange tip (which is required to have by Federal Law). Itís very important that everyone, veteran or beginner that we ALL respect and abide by the rules. Failure to do so will only cause airsoft to become illegal or heavily regulated as in some European countries.

Here in the U.S.A., we are very lucky that we have so much freedom with our airsoft. Please for airsoftís sake, donít ruin it for everyone. Also I will add, I donít want to sound selfish and only care about us airsofters but as well as the safety of others and this includes but not limited to neighbors, pedestrians, Police Officers, students, or absolutely anyone that might see your airsoft.

PLEASE KEEP IT SAFE, KEEP IT LEGAL, AND KEEP IT FUN FOR EVERYONE!

BE SMART AND DONíT RUIN IT FOR EVERYONE!



Now we canít afford to forget the basic rules of transporting airsoft:

1. ALWAYS, and this is a must, transport your airsoft in a sealed bag. There are no exceptions to this rule. Keep in mind that you may know that itís an airsoft gun BUT your neighbors, pedestrians, Police Officers, students, amongst other people have NO idea that itís fake. So when they see it they will assume that itís real and that you mean business. Please for the sake of airsoft NEVER EVER brandish your airsoft unless at a legal field or in your home.

2. Donít try and be cool and walk around in fatigues while walking around with a gun bag, you may look cool in your head but a Police Officer or other authorities are going to assume that you may be up to no good. Always respect Police Officers and they will respect you, itís simple as that! I actually had an opportunity to speak to several Costa Mesa Police Officers who asked me to educate them on the newer and even more realistic airsoft. (Keep in mind that they are used to seeing clear guns) not our more realistic black models. More often than not they are pretty impressed by them and are often intrigued and want to shoot them.

3. Remember to have them covered in a proper bag, be considerate to other people, and respect everyone. Donít shoot at people who arenít playing and most important be safe!

The worst thing about incidents like this is that they're completely preventable. The public should NEVER see more than a guncase!! If you don't have a guncase or bag, get one or transport the replica in the original box the gun was sold with. We cannot afford potentially lethal negative contact with the authorities in our region.

GREAT! Ok I have a question. Would if you don't have a bag or an RTS box and the box that the gun was sold in was not RTS (Ready To Shoot) And the box was very hard to open?

If nothing else wrap it up in a sheet or something and use straps to secure it. Or grow bigger muscles so that you can open the box.

Ummmm......... Yeah i'm already in a Workout routine with my Brother and my dad he taught us his routine and I lifted weights last night and I can feel them improving. For example my M16 weighs 7.0 PDS and now it's all of a sudden lighter?

2 Questions:
1: What is "PDS"?
2: Are you freaking serious?
