I visited my inlaws over the weekend for a birthday party and 10-12 boys were there with my nephew. They all had the airsoft guns and were shooting in the backyard. I could not believe how they acted with these "toys". Growing up my first "gun" was a crossman bb gun and my father made sure that I followed the same rules that I now follow as a adult. Always loaded, safe direction, finger off the trigger, target and beyond. These "toys" are a perfect opportunity to introduce our kids to firearms and prepare them for the future. I am not a person that thinks toy guns are harmful or that video games create serial killers, but there is a difference between nerf guns and bb guns. I couldnt help but be the bad guy and atleast try to teach them a thing or two.
