My sons came in from playing around the neighborhood last night (they are 11 and 8), and reported that some friends of theirs had airsoft guns, and they'd been playing "war games" with them. I didn't think too much of it until my younger ds showed me the pellets they used - 6mm hard plastic pellets. I was immediately concerned about the safety of these, and got online this morning to find out more. It turns out airsoft guns are real guns, not toys, and are actually banned in some states. I now have an 11yo who is very upset with me because he thinks I'm overreacting . I'm just wondering what other parents have experience with these - do you let your kids play with them? If so, what are the rules (if any)?
