Another idiot wearing an airsoft gun in public.

I work security at the Pickering Town Centre. I just got back from vacation, however, when I stopped in to check my scheduling I was briefed on an arrest yesterday. Some moron was wearing camo pants and a drop leg holster with a pistol in the holster walking around the mall. When he was being checked on in the washroom it was heard that he was in fact chambering rounds. After the arrest and search he had metal bbs on his person. He claimed he was just coming back from an airsoft tournament. I cannot release the personal information publicly, but I really hope this individual is not a member here. If any of the admin's would like some more information I can pass on a name to check if he is a member. This individual had a prior record and was already on probation. Not sure if anybody knows this individual. He was charged by Durham Regional Police with weapons dangerous. I will post more if the police do a press release on the incident.

Its people like this that ruin the name of airsoft. People like this should not even have an airsoft on them due to liabilities with the people in the area and the police. Seriously even thought i dont live in Canada at the moment it still affects me because we have had a similar issue in Cyprus too and how it bums out responsible people that are enjoying the sport and those that are responsible and mature about airsoft get to get the classification "irresponsible people with guns" as a label because of idiots like this person. Its such a shame (excuse me for my french) idiots like these are even allowed to have airsoft guns in the first place. Shame shame shame...

a pellet gun shoots lead pellets not steel bbs, pellet gun and BB gun arent interchangeable labels

I have both aluminum and steel 6mm bbs as well, so its easily possible that its an airsoft gun, well need more concise info though

They're called priorities. Get yourself some.

white colored bbs are what people are use to seeing for airsoft but for those that don't know, 0.36 color is more metallic in appears making look like steel.

Also the Nites look like steel as well.

Hint: It looks metallic because it's filled with metal (They must add weight to the plastic spheres, don't they?)

No, they are teflon coated. It's still plain plastic inside.
a 6mm metal BB would be heavy and impractical.
The GBB or rifle would need a heavy spring or high flow valve to shoot efficiently.

Actual metal BB are coated. Like in the picture above.

Oh ok... I thought the label was meaning the core was nickel, steel-plated.... or vice-versa...

I think when the press release comes out it will likely say he was holstering a PSG-1 with a polar star in his pants that shoots metal bbs.

I didn't actually see the bb's being used or the gun personally. Was just based on the report.

You're right. Fox was saying the Nites were Teflon coated, and real steel BB are like your package.
