BBs can put holes in walls, bet the condo board would love that. Even if you set up catchers and a zone that's protected, things ricochet out very easily.

We have an awesome range at a local field, the owner has set up some pots and pans and various things that make cool noises when you hit them. You know what happens at least once or twice a day? a round comes screaming back at the shooter or back at the firing line with enough force that makes if feel like someone at the other end of the range is shooting at you.

I tech guns in my basement, I have a chrono box set up. It has baffles in it to absorb bb energy and try and slow them down enough so they roll down a ramp and collect in a bucket. You know what's all over my floors? BBs. lol.

Airsoft guns can be considered firearms in various interpretations of the law, it's illegal to discharge a firearm within city limits, if there's no criminal law against it, there's definitely a bylaw against it, which can elevate to firearms related charges pretty quick if nosey neighbors or the neighborly dudley do-right sees it. There are plenty of stories of detectives, swat, police coming to knock on, break down doors because someone called in a terrorist threat over an airsoft gun. For the most part it's just a knock on the door but in today's terror driven society, police are going to take no chances about a gun call.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.
