Why can't we all just respect a red flag?

Posted | By:  

Desert Fox Airsoft tossed up an epic video this week addressing one of the most common problems encountered on airsoft fields, likely around the world: that of overshooting individuals who have been hit and/or surrendered and are no longer a combatant.

"Happens every game, you put your red rag up and someone still decides to empty a magazine into you."

The range official is priceless

Note: We have addressed this countless times here on Airsoft Society. The range etiquette thread delves into this and much more in great detail.

Further, if you get the drop on someone and they surrender, let it happen, don't hose them down in 6mm as you cackle, even if the particular match has its own set of customs.

The only thing worse than overshooting is not calling shots and cheating about it. Nobody likes a cheater.

Anyway, on to the video:

I'm just trying to figure out what those red-rag packets are. I want one to put on my helmet.

My local CQB field doesn't allow the bang bang rule because there is no MED. One time I came around a corner and my barrel poked an enemy in the stomach. Since he wasn't wearing a vest and I didn't feel like ruining his day I yelled "bang bang" anyway. I'm glad he accepted it because we both knew it would've ended badly for him if he didn't. I can't stand shooting people more than is necessary, it hurts them and me at the same time. It sucks that people don't feel the say way since I've been lit up point blank many times before.
