But they don't LOOK like guns really either. My point was that we've enough trouble with our guns as it is....having them combust propane to fire a projectile is one huge step in the wrong direction....

If our guns looked like paintball guns, or nail guns then I don't think it would be an issue it stands ( IMO ) if we started to have airsoft guns that "fired" bb's through a combustion process we would see our sport banned much faster.
I still think walking away from new ideas for reasons like that is a way worse step in the wrong direction... (sorry - double post)
