Airsoft Safety

Mach 1 Airsoft is the Canadian leader in airsoft media. We’re here to ensure that your entry and progression into airsoft is comfortable and safe. We’re also a Canadian leader in airsoft safety, with messages that connect to communities across North America. Check out some of our projects below:

In 2015, Mach 1 Airsoft decided to make airsoft history by becoming the first Canadian airsoft retailer to take an active approach to airsoft safety. We understood that safety can be dry, so we decided to make it fun and relevant. Our first campaign reached several thousand airsofters, and spread the message about common actions that may be considered faux pas. Our third campaign, #LooksCanKill, reached all the way across North America, being featured by publications such as Popular Airsoft, companies such as airsoft leader Elite Force, and airsoft personalities from Halifax to Los Angeles. You can check out some of our publications below:

Airsoft Faux Pas List 2015

We were inspired by the efforts of a local police service to make their community safety announcements fun, so in the spirit of their Frosh Week lists, we decided to do one tailored to Canadian Airsoft. This PSA covers some common actions that some may not realize are airsoft faux pas.

Halloween Safety Reminder

It’s almost Halloween, the day to dress up and play make-believe for a few hours. However, what is fake, can often be mistaken for real. The goal of this posting was to remind our community that dress up is fine, but to leave the guns at home.

Looks Can Kill Campaign #1

Brought on by a common misconception, we decided to remind the community that airsoft guns will be treated as real guns in emergency situations. We also wanted to foster an environment of positivity and inclusivity with our message. This PSA has been featured by Popular Airsoft and Elite Force Airsoft.

Looks Can Kill Campaign #3

In October 2016, we want to remind our community here that while airsoft guns may be the perfect compliment to a great costume, in the interest of public safety they should be left at home. Sometimes, there is such a thing as “too realistic”.
