Their all considered "Replica Firearms", and regardless of whether people consider them to be or not, they are guns in form or another. And kids should not play with guns.

If you are worried about taking risks, this isn't the sport for you. Perhaps you should just stick with Nerf guns until you're 18 and unafraid of a little risk. Here's a little tip taken from Mark Twain, "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” Just save airsoft for when you're 18 though.

You obviously have a right to an opinion but I know many successful retired military personnel who shot firearms regularly as a child at a school's shooting range and say it was one of the best things that helped keep them out of trouble and learn discipline, common sense, and safety.

Back on track: rather then having your parent's buy the cheapo springer without any money contributed from you, a better idea would be to save up some money and split the costs 50/50. This is so that you respect the weapon and treat it with much more precaution and safety as you have worked for it.

Another suggestion is that since the springer has such low range, you could possibly construct a BB trap and shoot it in your basement or hallway, out of your neighborhood soccer mom's sight.

*This is the approach I took, except I split the cost with a friend and my parent's were there to buy the springer.

A bullet may have your name on it, but a grenade is addressed to whoever it may concern.
