i went back to my local walmart in london and actually found someone that worked in the sports department. when asked "if you have to be over 18 to buy and handle this product, why isn't it behind the glass with the BB guns?" and i was told that there was no room so the store manager wants it on the floor, that you have to be ID'ed before you buy it and you should wear goggles when using it. so i bought that response, for now. i'm sure that walmart could afford to put in a bigger glass display up, but they rather just keep the money in their pocket. part of me wants to unleash a wild pack of soccer moms, but i just don't know where they would draw the line.
