Just playing a bit of DA here...
My G&P SR-25 shot 408 out of the box, and that's the average over 10 shots. (To be fair, it states 360-380 fps on the websites that sell this).
...There's other guns that exist that can shoot that hard. They're just about as expensive as the lower end systemas too
Honestly, if you could purchase these guns like that and use the argument as you've presented, it wouldn't be so terrible. However, baby jesus hates airsoft.
