Check out this "firearm" Should make everyone quake in their boots.

My oldest turned 8 yesterday and got his own first gun. An AIRSOFT. Bet you were expecting something different from the topic title. LOL. Anyway, I was bored out of my mind today at work so this is my way of wasting time.

My son was quite disappointed when he realized that it isn't a "real gun" and he can't hit what he is aiming at because those little plastic bb's kind of just go where they want. He also was dissapointed when he realized that the sights were basically WORTHLESS. I guess he has been spoiled with my real guns. But anyway it will be a real good test for him to have his own gun and see how he does with the rules, etc. Here is a pic.

Just make sure the tip is painted bright orange - would hate to see someone react poorly to seeing your boy with a gun like that.

UPDATE: OK, the right side of the picture didn't load - maybe I didn't scroll over enough - might want to make it a bit more obvious though :gun1:

The heavier "high density" airsoft BBs shoot a little straighter.

They have the bullet shapped bb's too that shoot pretty well.

Backyard (fenced) and range shooting only and only after asking mom or dad.

The AEG's have a tech called 'Hop Up' which makes things a bit more accurate but inducing back spin on the BB. Between that and I had a replica M4A1 (Longer barrel) makes things a bit more accurate. Then again im sure you dont want to spend $350 on it when you can purchase a real firearm for that price :wink:
