you see you're in one of the lucky families. Most people's family never heard of airsoft nor have anything deal with firearm.
My parents were completely against bb guns because back in Taiwan they've seen kids got shot with airsoft in the eye and lost their eye for it. Both my parents has firearm training (highschool for both and conscription for my dad) My dad oppose me to join the army NO matter what kind of stuff Im going into, even a doc in the army. All I could think of now is wait for 3 years and renew my PAL/RPAL license (my mom held on to my license since she doesn't trust me with it) without my parent's knowledge and store firearms on range. or wait until I move out which won't be anytime soon (talking alteast 6 years before)
General thesis, keep your airsoft, but put it in your friend's house play it there, it should effectively stop your parents control your airsoft.
