Sorry man, gonna disagree with you on that one.

Looks like a gun, should be treated like a gun. (regardless of who's perception) I got no less than 3 barrels waved in my face at OP: Biohazard this week, and those were walcrap / crappy-tire springers, because people don't treat airsoft guns like GUNS.

In public - airsoft gun should be in a case, locked.

At the field (and not engaged in combat) - Barrels down, gun cleared and on safe (or even better, mag out and battery disconnected)

It's *our* sport. We *chose* to play with extreme realism. Gas blowback, black / painted parts, etc... We want it like this because otherwise we're the fucking rainbow brigade playing paintball.

We need to step up and be safer about it, for everyone's sake.
