Those people are litteraly making their pathetic lives more exciting by screwing our hobby while showing off on their blatantly useless media networks.
makes me real sick.
Keep in mind, I would say at least 60%-75% of the people that see/read this report have no idea what airsoft is... and that includes half these reporters.
In the general public's eye, a kid has a replica to cause trouble. They know nothing of this sport. How should they know these replicas are for a legitimate sport if they don't even know airsoft exists?
It would be nice to see an educated article on airsoft, perhaps inviting a reporter out to a game or something. I've seen a few news articles like that on YouTube, and it 1) puts airsoft in a positive light, and 2) puts out awareness that these replicas actually have a purpose other
than imitating a real firearm.
