Why do all the young airsofters want snipers?

I recently visited Buyairsoft in red deer and there was a ton of kids aged 10-14 buying airsoft guns with the money in there parents wallet. every single one of them wanted a sniper, and of course, every single one of them wanted the one with the highest FPS. I highly doubt any of them were going to go play an organized skirmish with them, most of them looked like plinkers. so why not just get a BB gun? I dont get it!

why do you guys think snipers attracked the young crowd so much?

Cuz it's s0 c00l to be a super sniper like in COD, obviously

Since when does that store actually sell snipers? Isn't that human trafficking?

they are also fearing pain as well, plus they also want to do some stupid things at far distance without getting in trouble

Because in their mind their thinking they wont get hit with a bb and they will get to be sneaky and look cool but fuck them there all getting vsr-10s it seems because its pretty cheap. All of my friends like snipers and play quite often i cant wait to get a temp ka m4a1 to use against them so i can make them never want to brag about their snipers again.

I don't get that either. If they wanted a pro BB gun for plinking the Remington Airmaster is only like $150 at most and is way more accurate than any airsoft gun by nature of shooting at 495 FPS and using heavy .177 match pellets. Hell the Crosman Nitro Venom's are pretty sharp looking too and only come in at under $200, slap on a good optic onto the Nitro and sight it in and it could be a real tack driver.

If they want to game it then it's not my problem, just means more kills for me since I can probably outrange their stock rifles with my AEG.

For the first couple of days kids absolutely adore their snipers, then reality sets in. They see that the caring and feeding of a sniper is a big responsibility. They find that when not sniping, snipers like to sleep in nice comfy beds like the rest of us. Then there's trips to the range, trips to the strip bar, daddy's $400 bottle of scotch disappearing...and you can't just flush 'em down the toilet either.

And I would not blame that game for the abnormal amount of Teens that want "Sniper rifles" there are also the movies and TV shows along with other games to blame (and the two sequels to that specific game aswell, not so much that one itself).
