When will we see non lethal marker rounds in sport applications?

Recommended Posts

 

when will we have "marker projectiles" for REAL firearms in sport application?

Very excited about the future of this sport Style with the Advent of less expensive and more effective marker rounds for real firearms that require the use of a couple simple inexpensive modifications..

 

when do you think we will see this organized into an actual sport that civilians have an opportunity to take part in?

I would rather not get hit by a UTM thank you very much. One the pain imagine a kid getting hit with one. You would have to have whole new head protection that is expensive and the price per round is more that actual ammo

Yes of course the price is high at the moment but once it gets into the civilian market hands it should come down rapidly with mass manufacturer and the like..

 

if you watch the videos the guys that are shooting each other with the rounds suggest they hurt less than Airsoft which is pretty much a negligible amount of pain anyway. My opinion is if you're worried about pain you shouldn't be involved in any of these activities anyway.

 

Good point about kids however we do let kids do things like motorsports/downhill ski, spearfishing that kind of thing so in my opinion this wouldn't be much more dangerous.

 

It would be critical to have on a whole new level of protective equipment like riot gear at the very minimum

I know this is old but doing the math a 5.56 UTM has the equivalent KE of a .20 doing 560 fps... approx 2.9 J. it is a .45g projectile doing about 375 fps. From personal experience they hurt... bad. they also have a little steel marker bb inside the assembly that likes to embed itself in unprotected flesh. I caught a couple of these in the face, the scars make cool stories.
