target shooting (with real rifles) is a sport, the guns they use not only look like real fire arms, my god, they are real fire arms! a lot more dangerous than airsoft guns I think. And theyre not illegal...
Perhaps what we need is sticter purchasing rules for an airsoft gun: PAL or PAL Restricted required to purchase and operate an airsoft gun. Treat our guns like real steel firearms. (with the exception of the fully automatic part! hehe)
