Airsoft safety gear,tennessee airsoft equipment: What’s the best way to protect yourself?
The US military has banned the use of airsoft guns in the US because of safety concerns, with the US government warning that it will take more than two years for the ban to take effect.
In a letter to the US Congress, the Department of Defense (DoD) said that it had decided to restrict the use in the country of air-soft guns because it has “proven to be ineffective in reducing the incidence of adverse events, including fatalities”.
It said that airsoft gun safety measures “will take a minimum of two years to take full effect”.
It is the first time in US history that the DoD has banned airsoft firearms, although it has previously banned the sale of replica weapons and the use and manufacture of certain other airsoft products.US military officials are concerned about the increase in injuries and deaths due to airsoft weapons in recent years, with reports that more than 1,000 people have died from airsoft over the past year.
The DoD, however, has repeatedly warned that the airsoft industry is not a safe sport and has urged people to avoid using them.
The ban on airsoft has been met with criticism, with many US military officials saying it would be impossible to ban airsoft in the United States.
A recent study by the US Government Accountability Office (GAO) said the ban would require significant financial and human resources.
In the US, it found that the military spends more than $3.5bn per year on the equipment it uses to protect its troops.
