Cool skull lower face masks... at Dollarama right now...

Was walking around the store today, and while down the halloween isle I found those skull lower face pro... Im not a big fan of the look at all, but I bought one, because at $2 each, its nice I guess as backup or a loaner...

The plastic is solid enough, I can see it taking the same beating the "airsoft" versions take...



its literally the same mask as that, except theyve got them all painted funky halloween colours. Some of them are plain black, I was able to get one.

But yeah, cool beans I say...

This will not withstand a bb hit
The plastic is really crappy and a bb will leave an almost perfect 6mm hole In it

True story, My team mate had one last year, we shot it from 20ft away @400 fps, blew the tooth clean out. Let just say it turned into target practice

I use one of the koei masks from time to time, I cut everything below the nose off, and drilled small holes all over, so its just a lower, and its the same plastic, Ive taken many shots off it and its fine...

That said...

I could see how the teeth part might puncture when hit by a bb as theres small holes in between the teeth ( I guess to breath easier) but if it did break through, i imagine it would absorb most of the impact. Theres guys on here that use shemaughs to absorb BB impacts lol, so yeah... haha

I dont know, for $2 its ok... alot of guys dont use lowers. Im one of those guys that hates them, but is too paranoid to game without them.

Im constantly trying to find a goggle/lower combo that I really like as appose to one I learn to deal with. Not saying this thing is the answer, but as a backup/loaner its ok.

If you don't wear a lower, this is a horrible choice. not only is it effectively useless, it will cause you to fog the crap out of your goggles, but a $10 mesh lower and be done with it lol

I've picked up a few for our zombie game. There will be next to no shooting (limited ammo and guns) mostly nerf swords and stuff!

350 fps or less.

it may be worth experimenting if ‘reinforcing it’ with duct tape would help any.

For the 25$ version I got off Airsoftpark I would cover it up with form/cammo tape anyway, which adds to the creep out factor.

Just remember to out that extra money away to save for dental work. Saving $15 is a pretty risky swing.

What does this have to do with the topic?

====

Easy to test: take the dollars a mask, put it 20ft away and shoot it, you'll be set

How does shooting it with your gun from 20' compare to some other guys find at 6" walking around a wall? Lol

I personally never seen nor have been shot in the face at that range; but yeah I agree accidents happens

I have shot one point blank that's how I know that it leaves almost perfect 6mm holes in it
For protecting your face you want something that will withstand a hit at range
Aswell as an accidental close/ hot shot
Otherwise there's not much point

Not to mention when a bb penetrates that lower its now carrying shards of broken plastic with it on its way to hit your face
So probably would end up being lot worse than not wearing any face pro

That is a practice everyone should do for any face protection product that is not airsoft ballistic tested. Shoot it at a distance of 3 to 5 feet away. If it passes, then use it.

If you punch a 6mm hole through it and still want to wear it, your choice.
