They can make those Airsoft guns pretty realistic these days. Some of the really high end ones from Japan even have the same weight and balance of the real things.

Good way to get shot by someone with a real gun though.

Ya, it's just a airsoft, but it's still pretty cool .

Also, it is the same weight and balance of a real ingram mac-10, I love it.

I hate to be a party pooper...but why did you pay 400 bucks for a glorified BB gun?

I can understand why people spend that kinda cash on paintball guns, but not really on airsoft stuff.

Care to enlighten me?

I'm not sure if I'd look at the Mac-10 as an example of good balance and form... I mean from a gun who's slogan is "spray and pray."

Yeah, I'd like to see the groupings on that thing. Like MOA at 100m...

Why do you spend so much money on glorified bikes?

It's a hobby.

A couple of friends of mine got arrested for playing on a school roof with their airsoft guns. The cops got a call and brought the S.W.A.T Team. They were later relesed when they found out the guns were fake, but still keeped them for further investagtion.

It really freaks out SWAT if you point the air softs at them. Try it some time.

Do you have a problem with people who have more then one hobby?

There is a club set up in my town, we have games in a propper arena every other sunday, i'm well aware of the police not liking them.
