    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Our new guns.

    Behold, our new MP5 and an M4.




    Ok, so they're airsoft guns, but they're still cool. Full auto, battery powered and surprisingly accurate at reasonable ranges (I was pegging a pizza box reasonably consistently from circa 200 feet away with the MP5)

    I consider them our new "sparring guns".

    While I dont have an MP5 varient (yet) The m4 feels very realistic, being made primarily of metal. The mp5 also feels more or less like the real deal which I've played with in the past. They have the same sight picture as their real counterparts so I think they're potentially useful training tools if one wanted to train to shoot people for whatever reason... Next on the list is a beretta 92 varient so I can practice my pistoling ;)

    But yeh they're cheap to shoot and I can shoot people with them. We went out to a field yesterday and creeped around in the bushes shooting at people (who were of course, shooting back). It was pretty cool.

    Anyways, here's a video of me doing some indoor target practice. The BBs tear the **** out of cardboard from about 20 feet away. Going through both sides of the box (I'm using a towel as a backdrop because they also make sizeable dents in the drywall) Don't forget to note what an awesome shot I am.

    which brand did you get?

    For a pistol, look into western arms. I have there m92fs perfect edition berreta which is quite nice.

    inerestingly enough it is signifigantly heavier than my real P99.

    The tatical light on the mp5 is nice as when you turn it on it is much easier to see where the BBs are going.

    Airsoft... I was actually a little excited until I read "bb's."

    They're both Classic Army. the WA beretta is actually what I was looking at since all the safety mechanisms function the same as the real deal, though the fact that it uses the weaker type of gas is a little disappointing.

    So how safe are these for kids? I want my daughter to start learning about firearm safety and how to pop targets and an M-16/M-4 clone would be great for this.

    ...you are joking, right? I would say that the best way to teach kids firearm safety would be to keep them the **** away from firearms. But thats just me... I am not going all hippy on you, that would be hypocritical of me since I like guns myself. But how is teaching a child to use a murder weapon going to do any good? Ridiculous.

    Nice TOYS BTW Anna, these are not guns.

    Airsoft is to firearms what LARPing is to Martial Arts.

    How old is your daughter? Depending on her age and your goals here are a few options:

    1) The Eddie Eagle program from the NRA is good start in terms of “gun proofing” kids. It’s non-political and basically teaches that “if you see a gun, don’t touch it and go tell and adult”. See the NRA web site for details.

    2) If you want teach your kids about firearms safety, use firearms and not toys. Start with a 22 and teach her to handle and shoot it. I believe the NRA also has programs for kids.

    Simply put, Airsoft guns are toys; they feel like toys, and they handle like toys. They can have a place in Force-on-Force training, but they are NOT GOOD for teaching safety and manipulation.
