(Reviewer's all-caps; not mine.) Ahem.These pistols are deadly accurate and pierce through zombie targets easily, i highly recommend buying this product. These pistols are the Stinger P311 but a little upgraded with a green barrel and about 50 fps upgraded from the original 325 or 315 fps(these are truly 360 fps.) Any way great pistols and awesome target catcher than conserves ammo. The only cons are target catcher also catches the paper shot off from firing so u have to separate torn paper and bbs(or just throw all bbs and paper away to save time, ur choice.) BUY THIS PRODUCT FOR A FUN AND GREAT TIME. REMEMBER THOUGH IF U MISS TARGETS BY FOOLING AROUND AND IT HITS PLASTIC TARGET HOLDER,THEY DO FLY BACK AT U SO WEAR EYE AND FACE GEAR BECAUSE THEY ARE POWERFUL GUNS. BE SAFE AND BUY THIS....
Thank you, Quazi!

It's horrifying because Trump is blunt instead of making overt implications.
I think these airsoft guns are dangerous when not used with eye protection. Firing willy-nilly around a school bus pick-up point is stupid, at the very least. Dangerous at most. (One boy was running away and got hit...that's enough for me.) If it was my kid, he'd have the gun taken away for a good long time -- until he learned to respect the rules. Because I would most certainly have rules that one never shoots it when there is any chance a kid might be hit who isn't part of the game and who isn't wearing eye protection -- including my kid.
I'd be furious that the school suspended him for using a "firearm". I would do everything in my power to get that amended to "replica firearm" which is, apparently, what these things are.
While it may be over the top for the school to get involved, because it happened in or around a school bus stop, I can't say I'd blame them. That would be the least of my concerns if this was my kid.
He could have blinded someone.
Thank you, Quazi!
As someone else stated, the school should not have been involved unless the incident happened at the bus stop. This was a matter for parents to resolve.
That said airsoft guns can be very powerful. I have one that shoots over 550 fps but has had work done to it and quite expensive. The guns these kids had were rated at 350fps and I have serious doubts they are that powerful. Most come in out of box at around 275 to 300 feet per second. You would have to be real close to someone and I mean real close to do any real damage. 70 feet with that gun is too far away to do more than sting. The higher power guns are another story. I have seen severe eye injuries, teeth knocked out, and skin penetration that required removal of the pellet. The guns they had were typical spring style guns that lose strength over use. They are usually broken quickly as well. The more powerful guns are either gas, electric, or modified spring guns. These can be quite powerful.
Bottom line is these kids should find a place designated for this activity. Some of these guns are very realistic looking and accidental shootings by Police are not unheard of. Shooting around in the front yard is not a good idea as people can walk into the game unknowing a game is in session.
