SAFETY: Airsoft Fail - Tactical Door to the Face - D14Airsoft on YouTube

"2nd floor of the three story building, Dallas is on point. Attempting to hold the door shut he calls for his shotgun. Overly aggressive airsoft dude crushes the door right into his face. Even though he is seeing stars, Dallas catches and keeps ahold of his gun. Well played...."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

Tossing this one up for FRIDAY PRE-GAME discussion, as one of the things you need to think about, discuss and SHARE with your teammates and buddies at indoor fields!  Remember, this is a GAME, guys...and it can be dangerous if you don't show some restraint or use your head before you take the field!  Big Hat Tip to D14 AIRSOFT and this player for sharing!  BE SMART GUYS!

SAFETY VIDEO! - Kids & Guns with Tatiana Whitlock - Panteao Productions on YouTube

"Owning a firearm comes with a high level of responsibility. That responsibility extends to educating yourself and your immediate family members in the safe handling of firearms. Many firearms accidents can and should be prevented. Taking the mystery out of firearms, educating our children, and following strict safety protocols can make the difference. In this video, Tatiana Whitlock reviews the firearms safety rules, proper firearm storage, proper attitude and setting an example, specific age groups like toddlers to kindergarten age, pre-teens and teens, toy guns in the home, when friends visit, capabilities and consequences, and family business. Kids & Guns is not a tutorial video on how to teach your kids how to use a firearm. This video will lay out a baseline of information that parents can make better decisions with.

To purchase this video on DVD visit Panteao at: http://panteao.com/product/kids-guns-......"

Thumpy Covey's insight:

This is THE BEST SINGLE VIDEO we have ever seen on the topics that will impact our future...You need to watch, SHARE and leave comments over at the Panteao video chan, too!

BOXER TAKES ON AIRSOFT! - To prevent more deaths like Tamir Rice's, senator introduces fake-gun bill in D.C. - CLEVELAND.COM

BOXER TAKES ON AIRSOFT! - To prevent more deaths like Tamir Rice's, senator introduces fake-gun bill in D.C. - CLEVELAND.COM | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it

"Sen. Barbara Boxer, a Democrat, already asked the Consumer Product Safety Commission to require bright paint or fluorescent strips on airsoft guns, the kind that 12-year-old Tamir had. But the safety agency lacks power to make the requirement cover B.B. guns or similar toys, Boxer said.

"No child should ever die because a police officer or anyone else mistakes a toy gun for a real weapon," Boxer said in a statement. "This legislation will protect our kids and help law enforcement by making sure that imitation firearms cannot be mistaken for real firearms."

Under federal law, airsoft pellet guns – but not B.B. guns -- are already supposed to have a painted orange piece on the tip that signifies they are toys, according to Boxer's office. In 1994, the chairman of the Consumer Product Safety Commission challenged the toy industry to stop making fake firearms that look real and applauded stores that stopped selling them...."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

California nonsense transferred by Anti-gun Senator Boxer to the halls of Congress.  This has now become a NATIONAL FIGHT, Airsofters....Players, Industry, Sites and Games...we all need to pull together with a strong voice!

MEDIC ACTUAL! - The Red Right Hand Blog

MEDIC ACTUAL! - The Red Right Hand Blog | Thumpy's 3D House of Airsoft™ @ Scoop.it | Scoop.it

"...Working as a paramedic for the past 22 years I fell into the position of team medic when I joined the Red Right Hand a few years ago. Before that I’m sure the field had a box with Band-Aids, an ACE bandage and burn ointment in it (they always include burn ointment in those prepackaged first aid kits for some reason?). If an injury occurred I assume someone had some first aid training at some point and could treat an injury until 911 could be called or transport could be made. By default, on the days I was on the field I became the go-to guy when someone got injured...."

Thumpy Covey's insight:

GREAT think piece from some guys who've been there, BROKE THAT...and lived to think again.  SAFETY FIRST, SAFETY ALWAYS!
