I agree pure ignorance.
Not specifically on here just in general. Even mentioning I was gonna get a clone of my m4 for my boy for Xmas. Few people gave that stink eye look. But then turn around dropping there midgets off to paintball tournaments. Just venting I guessWho's shaming kids for airsoft guns? I enjoy playing airsoft with my kids and nephews.
I'm a big fan of airsoft for easy force-on-force scenarios. No expensive special equipment, just a $99 airsoft gun and a few pennies of BBs.
I use P365 for force-on-force scenarios with friends and the wife.

Paintballs can be shot just as much as plastic bbs. The guns may not look anything like a real one but you can inflict just as much damage/pain. Not all younger kids are immature when it comes to that. If your child is that irresponsible than don't get 1. Couple of my buddies wife's got wind I was getting my son 1 and it's been a little weird when I visit or whatever. My boy would go paintballing with most of the kids. Now he's not really into it anymore and likes the airsoft battles even more. It's just ridiculous the way I look at it. There already allowed to go paintballing so.. son is trying to get a team together with the kids that he knows and paintballed with but it's not panning out so well.A friend of mine's son and his friend were outside playing with a realist looking airsoft handgun. It was basically a replica of the real thing. I brought it to their attention and their parents attention that wasn't the smartest idea especially out on public neighborhood streets.
It's stuff like that that's behind why some people dislike kids with airsoft guns. There have been cases where kids brought them to school, there was a case where a kid was expelled for playing with one before his school bus came, and others who have been killed by L.E. or had L.E. called on them. I had a few kids about a month ago firing a fullauto airsoft gun at his friend's, and the pellets were hitting my car and others.
No I get it, even with airsoft battles though every arena requires face mask and chest plate. He got hit good at last Sundays battleI am not disagreeing with you. Just pointing out why it has gotten a bad name. Most people who do paint ball do it with gear on in a controlled environment. There are a lot of immature unsupervised kids who are misusing airsoft guns.
