HOW TO USE A GEL BLASTER CORRECTLY AND HOW TO USE THE GEL BALLS?

by Simon Moret 30 Mar 2024

 Using a Gel Blaster Gun can be a fun experience, but it's important to know certain key steps for safe and effective use. Here's a general guide to help you use your Gel Blaster weapon and prepare the gel balls for optimum use:

 

1. Preparing the gel balls:

First of all, make sure you use gel balls specifically designed for gel blaster guns. These gel balls are usually tiny and hard, similar in size to airsoft pellets. Never use other types of gel balls, such as those used in air guns, as this could damage your weapon.

Before using them, you must inflate the balls by placing them in clean water. Depending on the manufacturer's instructions, this may take between 3 and 4 hours. Be sure to read the instructions to find out how long they need to be soaked. Overly hydrated or under-hydrated balls can affect performance and potentially jam the blaster.

 

 2. Load the gun:

Before loading the weapon with the prepared gel balls, make sure you understand the specific loading mechanism for your model of Gel Blaster weapon. Loading steps may vary from model to model.

In most cases, you will need to remove the magazine from the gun, open the compartment and insert the inflated gel balls. Use clean, high-quality gel balls.

Avoid using dirty, dusty, or misshapen balls, as they can malfunction the blaster. Follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully to avoid any problems during loading.

 

3. Preparing to shoot:

Ensure that your Gel Blaster is correctly and securely assembled before use. Also check that the magazine is correctly inserted.

Gel Blaster weapons are battery-powered. Make sure the battery is fully charged before starting a game.

 

4. Firing the Gel Blaster weapon:

Pull the trigger according to the manufacturer's instructions to fire a Gel Blaster gel balls. Each Gel Blaster weapon may have different firing characteristics, such as semi-automatic or burst mode.

Spring or Electric Mechanism

Gel blasters can operate using either spring-powered or electric mechanisms. In a spring-powered blaster, pulling back and releasing the spring generates the energy needed to propel the gel ball forward. In electric models, a motor drives a piston or plunger mechanism to fire the gel balls.

Air Compression

In both spring-powered and electric gel blasters, there is typically a compression chamber that stores air. When the trigger is pulled, the compressed air is released, propelling the gel ball out of the barrel.

Barrel and Nozzle

Gel blasters have a barrel through which the gel balls travel. The nozzle directs the airflow and ensures that the gel balls are propelled with sufficient force and accuracy.

 

5. Safety tips when using a gel blaster:

Always prioritize safety and responsible use of gel blasters and gel balls:

Safety Mechanisms, range and velocity

Most gel blasters come with safety mechanisms such as safety switches or trigger locks to prevent accidental firing.

The range and velocity of gel blasters can vary depending on factors like the power source, barrel length, and the type of gel ball used. However, they are generally designed for close to mid-range combat, with velocities much lower than traditional airsoft or paintball guns.

Safety first

Always wear the appropriate protective equipment, such as goggles, when using a gel blaster, regardless of your role (participant, observer, or referee).

Wear protective eye gear whenever using a gel blaster gun. Gel balls can travel at high velocities and can cause serious eye injury

Clear the area

Ensure the target area is free of people and objects before firing. 

Mind your surroundings

It is important to be aware of your surroundings when firing your blaster. Be sure to avoid firing towards windows, vehicles, or sensitive areas as the gel balls can cause damage if they make contact.

Follow the rules & respect others

If playing in organized games, adhere to the established rules and safety guidelines.Make sure your blaster is correctly loaded and that it is not pointed at anyone. Keep your finger off of the trigger until you are ready to fire the blaster. Only fire at consenting participants and avoid aiming at sensitive areas like the face or head.

Be mindful of noise and potential disruptions, especially when using gel blasters in residential areas.

Properly dispose of used gel balls after games or activities.

Overall, gel blasters provide a fun and relatively safe way to engage in simulated combat or target shooting activities. However, it's important to use them responsibly and follow all local laws and regulations regarding their use.
