Not the best idea, probably the worst. Best case scenario, someone naively reports you to the cops out of fear, newspaper runs a story of airsoft fear-mongering story, further endangering our sport. Worst case, you get shot by a jumpy cop, and airsoft risks getting actually banned an illegal.
If you really want to get into this sport, help preserve it, and only play on private land/spaces (not your backyard), where noone can see you, or it's completely expected (like a paintball course).
