I don't know why they are calling them toys because their are not. Airsoft can be as Safe or Dangerous as paintball, depending on how you look at it. That's crap that you can modify them to be a real fire arm, the back pressure would blow it to hell and back. And like I said it can be as safe or dangerous as paintball, just wear safety goggles, and anything else you see fit to not loose eyes or get hurt. People these days make everything out to be worse then it really is. When I was growing up I think we had it easier and that was in the 90's and early to mid 2000's. I think maybe every other cap gun had orange tips if your lucky and shit I was shooting 22's and real BB Guns before I was ten, under parental supervision but we did it and no one thought to sit their and say that a bad idea but then again I was learning how to be safe and responsible, not being stupid. My parents, at a very young age thought my brother and I the responsibly to use objects like real fire arms, knives, bb guns, airsoft guns and most importantly of all paintball markers. But everyone was me when they were eight. Fact is fact, either way you look at things, you mess up, you'll pay for it. I think the fact that they have to have an orange tip is good but to not let them fix the problem is a little much.
