No, but at the same time, it is legal to serve your underage child alcohol. So you end up with legal grey zones.

Like pellet guns, (and airsoft in many stores), a kid may not be able to buy it, but we all know who the parent is buying it for. Especially something like a Daisy.

I can't add enough zeros to a +1 on that.

I bet the average airsofter knows more about how different guns look (especially military rifles) then the avarage person at a shooting range.

In airsoft there is a big deal placed on variants, customization, making that gun that is supposed to be a AK74U a correct AK74U etc just isn't done as much as you'd think on real firearms, even on the AR, most put a Aimpoint or Trijicon, or if they have a bit of extra cash a S&B and call it a day from what I see.

So no, I doubt the average person on the street can tell the difference. If anything the electric motor and gear box will make people think a airsoft AEG is a toy (like those annoying motorized light "guns") long before a paintball gun that is making loud noises that they'll confuse for gunfire.
