Airsofting Parents

This topic is a little different than a lot of the other posts I have seen written by kids worried about how their parents will react to them having airsoft guns and military gear. I am the father of a 2 year old girl and am wondering if having all this equipment will have a negative influence on my child. I am new to the sport and have not purchased anything yet because I want to make sure that I can participate responsibly.

I figure that teaching her that these are not toys and that she should never play with them is the obvious route (Which shouldn't be a problem because I plan on locking storing all my equipment in a room that she will not have access to). But at some point she will be old enough to realize what I am doing. A sport where we point real looking guns at each other with the intent of hitting each other can be the wrong message for little ones.

I guess my question is for you other parents out there. What are some of your experiences talking about the sport with your kids, and what were their reactions?

Thanks everyone.
