Today i went to an airsoft dealer to look at/for a KWA m4 GBB since this one store was an authorized dealer in jersey. As i was looking thru the glass counter a grown male walked in and started ooking at airsoft hand Gns. This particular customer is what i would consider a less then desirable member in either group, air soft or real firearms owner.Now, mind you, i was no more then 6-8 inches away as this conversation went down.
I'll make this short.
This particular gentalman was looking at the airsoft hand Gn and asking about what a good Gn was to shoot glass bottles. The kid working behind the counter instructed him to what a good weight BB to use. Then showed the metal BB's to use and have fun shoot bottle and break them.
i just about fell over when this customer asked what Gn and weighted BB would be good for playing around and driving by his "friends house" and "poppin caps" at them. The kid working behind the counter started showing him co2 driven hand Gns with shells. The customer asked about the orange cap on the barrel. The kid working said and i quote "oh no problem they can be pulled off to keep it looking real" "That way the orange ring wont give it away the Gn is fake"
Now, i know i cant control the world, but this kid who's family owns the store Im guessing, since he kept asking a women behind the counter questions and starting the question with " hey mom".
It seems to me at least from the message board i read, player seem to keep the sanctity of the sport pretty sacred. But this kid, who is selling these airsoft and knowingly continues to try and sell an airsoft Gn to someone who is telling you what they are intending on doing with it, just seems like an idiotic thing to do especially in NJ.
I not new to firearms and shooting but i am new to the airsoft sport. So, im trying to learn how the airsoft community interacts with each other and this sport and this store just blows the whole idea right out of the water.
Sorry its a rant but it struck a nerve with me.
