Here's a thought; because PTWs are so back-breaking expensive, you could always incorporate GBB platforms into the mix. Still not cheap, but much cheaper compared to PTWs. A little more realistic and cool/fun to use.

Thinking further though, a separate channel may be a good idea. It's a tough cookie..

Eddie Stone formerly of the S.A.S. has used airsoft in his shows. I've seen British Royal Marine Commandos doing ship clearing drills with airsoft. Travis Haley is open minded enough to do a video on airsoft and consider it as a legit option for training in combination to supplement live fire and use in combination with simunitions, blanks, M.I.L.E.S. laser systems, virtual training simulators, SRT training weapons or what have you. Its just a training tool to be used to improve skills like anything else.

I've seen other YouTube channels that target MIL/LE/civilian shooting communities incorporate the same ideas. You have to take into account he isn't presenting this as your average run of the mil airsofter. You have to consider he's presenting it as a vet. Do you guys think he loses street cred for this? Please. Travis has had a great response to his airsoft video and maybe it opened up a few eyes.

Live fire is the best for training but its also super expensive to spend a few hundred dollars on ammo to practice often enough. Airsoft is a excellent option when you don't have time to hit the range, want to practice weapons manipulation, practice under stress or don't want to drop money on ammo.

Though I agree with Deltastone with not muddying the brand, if you really must go through with it, either make a new channel, or make sure the content you put out is training oriented. It'd be very important to highlight that you're not "playing" airsoft, but rather "training" with airsoft. Otherwise, you risk the bleeding of your main audience whose interests are in real steal firearms.
I would steer clear of making reviews of airsoft guns and hardware. Making recommendations of what to use would be fine though. But again, always highlight how it is relevant to training purposes.
