M249 Machine Gun Gel Blaster
WHAT IS A GEL BLASTER?
A GEL BLASTER is a safer modern alternative to airsoft and BB guns. GEL BLASTER is a family friendly and an incredibly inexpensive alternative to nerf guns, airsoft and paintball. GEL BLASTER guns fire ‘gel/water ammo’. The ammo starts out as small absorbent beads that expand when soaked in water, when fired, the ammo easily bursts on low impact. This means they’re safe to use in skirmish battles and target shooting with little to no mess (the ammo dries to practically nothing after use). Does not stain clothing.
IS IT SAFE?
Yes, 100%! GEL BLASTER guns fire at a much lower velocity and don’t weigh that much so while they can cause a tiny sting, they aren’t dangerous, but safety glasses must be worn during use. Gel balls are completely non-toxic, environmentally friendly and leave no mess, residue or stains.
HOW DO I STORE THE BALLS
We recommend hydrating gel balls in water for at least 4 hours, then draining the water and leaving them in a sealed container until you wish to use them. For long term storage, put the gel balls in a sealed container or bottle in the fridge.
Failure to place in an airtight container will result in the balls shrinking back to their original or unusable size. If they do shrink, you can hydrate them again by adding water but they won’t be as firm as before.
Please make sure to also empty the magazine and clear the chamber once finished using all GEL BLASTER guns to avoid blockages.
IS IT A BB GUN?
No. It fires frangible (denoting ammunition designed to disintegrate into very small particles on impact) ammo that pops on impact. Unlike BB guns they shoot at much low er power and don’t hurt anywhere near as much, if at all. GEL BLASTER guns have been designed to be clearly distinguishable from real weapons for various reasons, including user safety.
CAN YOU SHOOT AT PEOPLE?
Yes, as long as everyone is consenting. Just make sure you wear safety glasses – included with most models which will protect your eyes in the case of a stray shot. You must only shoot at people who have agreed to be shot at!
DOES IT HURT?
Yes and No, a close-range shot may cause a small stinging sensation and a tiny red mark, but it’s orders of magnitudes softer than airsoft or paintball, doesn’t bruise and is gone in a second. A huge amount of fun!
ARE THESE CLASSED AS TOYS?
GEL BLASTER guns are not classed as toys. These are not suitable for persons under the age of 14 unless supervised by an adult.
DO I HAVE TO BE OVER 18?
No, GEL BLASTER guns are not replica weapons, and they are safe for everyone to use. GEL BLASTER is not suitable for children under 14 unless supervised by an adult. Safety glasses should be worn at all times by all participants. Please do not use these in public places.
ARE THEY BATTERY POWERED?
Yes, and a 3-hour charge is all that’s required. A USB charger is supplied with all battery powered GEL BLASTER guns. On some guns such as the Uzi, even if the light on the charger goes out, ensure its charged for a full 3 hours to make sure it’s topped all the way up.
