2:Borderline Illegal in Canada
If stores can get closed down for selling airsoft stuff, guns held at the border, and other like incidents, then Airsoft just seems to much of a grey area to me.
part of the reason i wanted to try airsoft was the ridiculously low priced guns i saw on the net, and the incredible price of ammo (2000 balls at the PB field over here is 140$!) I was hoping to pay 100-150$, not 500+
4:Nobody to play it with
theres really no parks or other players (besides the guys i know who might not even end up buying anything)
*Flame guard starts here*
5:Paintball is better
*Flame guard ends here*
The thing is:
2 leads to 3, which leads to 4.
1 is just a known fact.
5 is only true because Airsoft is generally expensive to get into (not saying paintball isn't ) and moreso because Airsoft is much harder to aquire.
