Yes Ghille but the consequences of improper use are the same. For us, we lose our standing at ASC. For you, possible police involvement.
Someone who robs a store with an airsoft gun is going away for as long as someone with a real gun. Just one extreme example that springs to mind.
You may as well stick around here for two years or so. At that point you will have a solid grounding in airsoft theory and maybe even within the community. Don't get discouraged now. :-)
