And besides that we’re very near towards the launch of our webshop on which the guys that take this sport a bit more serious can find all the quality stuff they need. Now as for the fundamentals the first thing you want to do is to treat everything that looks like a gun as being a real steel gun that also counts for airsoft guns like in this case. Because the fact is in the airsoft culture people have the tendency to call these things toys but then accidents happen because when people call them toys they act with them as being toys and then mistakes are made. So in our eyes a better suited name for them is that you either call them sports guns or training guns. The second thing is that safety is always the absolute number one priority when it comes to shooting the rest are all guidelines or suggestions. We will teach you to make you become a better shooter but which one you apply is all up to you because it differs for everybody. Now Let’s dive into the four basic safety rules of shooting. Number one treat all guns as if there’s a projectile in the chamber. Number two never point a muzzle at something you don’t intend to destroy or hit. This is what people refer to as barrel awareness. Number three keep your finger off the trigger until you are ready to fire. Sorry. This is what shooters refer to as trigger finger awareness. Number four always be certain of your target and what’s beyond it and let’s extend that to everything else around you as well. As for an extra rule let’s say the fifth rule. You never want to put a projectile in the chamber until you engage a target or expect to engage a target. Because shit can always happen and people have already shot in their own legs while drawing a pistol for example. Now these rules need to be engraved into your subconscious awareness in order to handle any sort of gun. So not only real steel because Murphy’s Law can always get you at some point in the end. Now let’s go over to working with a safety. If your gun has a safety you always want to put it on if you’re not using your gun. Only once you engage a threat you want to turn the selector switch to a certain fire mode. Once again this is because safety is always the absolute number one priority even in airsoft and nobody likes to get shot in the face from up close because you can’t handle your barrel awareness trigger finger and Safety. Now besides trigger finger awareness, there is also something called trigger finger control. So let’s dive into that. As for the trigger control you don’t want to release the trigger each time You pulled it learn the response of the trigger. Which will save you time which will make you shoot fast. The trigger control of each gun is different so make sure to adapt yourself towards your particular gun. Also remind that for airsoft guns when drive firing the trigger control is different because it depends on whether a power source is present or not. Learn these basics properly with airsoft and you’re already capable to use real steel guns as well. This is why airsoft is such a great training platform. You only have to embrace the idea to use it in that way. Only mind that most airsoft guns don’t have a recoil while real steel guns do. Remind that we can show you the things we’ve learned but you still have to do some training at home in order to become better even if it’s just dry firing at home and minding the things we’ve told you. But for professional training we recommend you to check out and take contact with the instructor Delta at deltasurvivalschool.com let us know in the comments if this video was helpful for you.

  1. Love it Gents. Safety 1st. As having been a real steel shooter for nearly 20 years as you mentioned, that Murphy's Law is always lurking round the corner, have seen ADz a few times on pistol range. Before and after you handle any platform, mag out, chamber clear visual and racked and everything you guys covered on top!! Keep it going gents and looking forward to your online store.

  2. 100% agree with everything you guys said. I can't stress most of the points you guys made and it drives me nuts seeing people treat airsoft guns as toys.

  3. As if to example this today, youtuber Ally Law had a negligent discharge from his paintball gun in his car. The gun was open in his car in the street. I think a video on how to treat a gun in public areas needs to be done too. In the UK it's a ten year prison sentence for a firearm in a public place. This would apply to airsoft as guns in public view are intimidating and will always get an armed response reply.

  4. Wapen vinden ze niet zo fijn in nl, hier noemen ze het voornamelijk replica’s. Jullie uitleg is super! Vaste sub erbij!

  5. It's actually crazy how often I see guys have zero barrel and trigger awareness. I see guys pointing their guns at each others faces after games and laughing like it's nothing. Even though I rarely used firearms growing up, my dad made a massive deal of gun safety even with "toys"

  6. I’ve gotta say, coming home after a long day and watching this can’t be beat. Very descriptive and applies to not only airsoft replicas, but real ones too. Love the humor too 😆
