You guys are way off base. The OP is a parent posting the question.
Their kid has come to them with a pig in a poke, or in this case a ICS GSG 522 that they want and must have.
The parent knows nothing about airsoft and is now fact checking to see if "all the other kids have these dad", and "everyone is doing it", and etc.
You guys with kids; it will happen to you too. Maybe not an airsoft gun but a cellphone or a pony or a game console. I can spot that particular sales method a mile off and you'll learn do it too.
Airsoft, where nothing is hurt but feelings.
