I hate it when people use airsoft guns to do horrible acts. It just makes the sport look bad and the players look like delinquents. A lot of sites like http://www.airsplat.com/airsoft-info.htm give education pages and advise AGAINST ANYTHING LIKE THIS! But people like this make it so difficult to take away any misconception on the sport.
