Airsoft
May 31, 2006

Umm, just a hint for those of you with airsoft pistols and who get really curious about whether or not they hurt.

They do.

Yeah, see, we've been playing with my airsoft pistol at work to relieve stress ... we shoot at the funny little sticky target that grabs the little green, plastic BBs and holds them there on the target for later retreival. And then we "graduated" to attempting to knock over the Pez dispenser Death Star. And the Playskool Star Wars guys.

In the course of this, naturally, there have been some ricochets. Yesterday, I caught a ricochet just under my mouth. And, finally, yesterday, one of the guys said, "Shoot me." We've all been hit by the ricochets and they kinda sting a little, but they don't really hurt. So ... one of the guys shot the graphic designer. His eyes kinda flew open and he said, "Let's not try that again."

So, of course, this morning, I can't stand the suspense anymore. Does it really hurt?

Hell yes.

I am now graced with a nice BB sized welt on my calf.

Umm, OW.

Won't be trying that again any time soon.

Any idea what the typical "muzzle velocity" is?
