I'm that old. I was a sponsored player back when a good chunk of this board was still in diapers or grade school (1990-1992). Paintball was never banned or illegal in this country - it was on the verge of being banned until the industry itself agreed to ban red paint, ban camouflage in tournaments, accompanied by a shift to anodizing guns in bright colors so they didn't look dangerous.

We could save airsoft in a similar manner - ban camo, make all the guns blaze orange, and make them look like space guns.
