Airsoft guns are recreational BB guns used for a variety of popular activities, such as combat games and target shooting, and as introductory guns for youths. They shoot plastic ammunition at comparatively low projectile energies, theoretically carrying less potential to cause harmful injury. We report the first documented case, to our knowledge, of globe penetration by a plastic BB shot from an airsoft gun.
