    possible nutjob

    So I was at my second job today (grocery store) when this guy comes in
    hes not dressed weird or anything, he isnt shabby looking, maybe 30-35 years old, he seems friendly and everything but then he turned to the right, exposing a drop leg holster on his thigh that was patterned in ACU camo. He wasnt acting threatening or anything and open carry is legal in WA, so i figured maybe he just carried a weird way. He was friendly enough but when he turned to leave, I got a better look at his pistol. Thats when I realized it was an airsoft pistol. It had the distinctive gas filling hole in the bottom of the magazine. Im just confused as to why a (seemingly) normal person would carry a very real looking toy gun in a ACU thigh holster. Seems like a bad accident waiting to happen.

    It is quite possible you may have just come face to face with the elusive and highly worshiped Gecko45.
    I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.

    OK guys how do you know if he hadn't just taken a break from a live fire exercise and was going right back to it and saw no reason to remove his airsoft.

    Besides, some times it is just fun to freak out the sheep.

    Is a air-soft considered live fire? Not to me.

    maybe he was CIA and it was designed to look fake, and you fell for it! Maybe he just finished a game of air-soft.

    What I meant by live fire is when for instance the police practice shooting at each other with guns that have no lethal projectiles. I call that live fire, you get hit and you feel it, you also learn tactics to keep from being hit. What would you call it?
