Kudos to Ed Matheson - well spoken, good form mate. Now that is impressive.

Ed, you drink for free when you come to my town...

Sounds sort of like the law and media are starting to differentiate between airsoft and softair.

while the second boy was hit in the face after the pellet ricocheted off a wall, said Brothers.
First shot hit, second, bad aim... maybe the hopup needs adjusting..

- agreed though, good to see an article that differentiates (cant spell..geh) between airsoft and what these kids are doing..

Be careful, you will now be on the clearsoft lover's hit list. We have a rabid example in the trash bin.

There is another post regarding a seizure of airsoft guns in Markham...

...maybe ASC needs to have Provincial Reps and things unfortunately but for the sake of all players need to get technical and serious - ID requirements, maybe even permits.

Your thoughts?

Cheers,
KaOz.

this article sort of shows people the difference between clearsoft and airsoft, and major thumbs up to Ed! he clearly explains the difference between the two and also informs people that airsoft is regulated. nice stuff!

This is the first step for the MAA in gaining a positive image in the public eye. Ed is Math202 on the forums and has been the president of the MAA since last fall. He's doing one hell of a job!

Ditto. If you ever end up in Windsor.

If you do, chances are you WILL need a drink :P

Ah skruface u beat me to this story.

I must give kudos to the reporter of the story, mostly because it was done right, even the subtle difference of stating it was "clear soft" rather than "air soft" and even went farther to explain the difference.

As i go to the high school just adjacent to the middle school mentioned, we were issued a note stating that "after consulting with a physician, no serious injury was reported".... it gave me a jolt/pissed off mood becuase i was pissed that this happened here. I try my best convincing kids to wait till they're 18, like me, and best into almost a speach to kids talking about clearsoft at the youth drop in nearby.

The real problem i find is that when you tell younger kids this, the responce is usually "Well it cant hurt anyone, theyre just little bbs" or "c'mon its not a real gun", and it never seems to cross their minds the issues that come from that way of thinking about it that way.

Sigh.... Maybe if we inserted some nudey pictures in the FAQ that would get more people to read them
