Its unfortunate to hear stories like this really frustrating to know that people continue to mess with airsoft guns without taking safety issues into consideration. i know that before i started to play with airsoft guns i always tried to educate myself on the public's perception http://www.airsplat.com/documents.asp?Link=airsoft-safety and overall its just a sport i enjoy playing, just wish others would have the same respect towards it.
