    A pellet in the eye could be life threatening why should anyone have to take that chance?

    More than just the eye... I think I've told the story here before somewhere a few years ago but can't find it at the moment. In short some friends and I were using a pellet gun back in the late 80's. A new kid in the area found us shooting out back and started a fight(because he wanted to shoot). At any rate, during the ensuing fight, he got a hold of the pellet gun and turned it on us. My friend was shot in the stomach with a pellet gun. The pellet went through his stomach, ricocheted around and through a few other organs before lodging in his spine. So yes, a pellet gun can be much more dangerous than most folks tend to think.

    Great Movie, A must see. When you are watching it you will be saying to yourself "I know people just like that."
    I am looking to buy an airsoft gun to match what I own to practice with, draw and fire, and the one I saw had a Blow back slide and it looked Very real.

    I'm not an expert with airsoft guns, but I've heard that in general, once you start getting past the 300 ft/s mark, things can start getting pretty serious as far as being able to seriously hurt someone (although any airsoft gun can really mess up your eye). Someone feel free to correct me here.
