I don't know why I would tell them I have a weapon, as I'd be putting myself in a world of sh*t! If they ask questions, I just tell them no, or if I see they're suspicious, I avoid direct questions. Yes/No answers.
And where does that "information" comes from, if I may ask?
On the contrary, saying you have nothing "suspicious" in your car (an airsoft gun *is* suspicious as it could be easily taken for a real firearm), will put you in a world of sh*t if they do see them or whatever.
You're way better explaining what is it you have and get done with it. I'm sure they wouldn't arrest you for having airsoft guns if you did comply honestly to their demands, as opposed to what you seem to think.
I'm no specialist on the matter (as probably any of the people speculating/affirming anything in this thread I think, correct me if I'm wrong), so what I'm saying here is the same as everyone's, speculations.
But I know I'd rather be honest and be a little good boy in the presence of LE. IF they have reasons to take them in, then yes they'll just do it, but chances are it'd be much easier to have them back after that than if you'd have tried to hide them and lie about it.
