    They are waste of money and if life has taught me anything it is that people love spending money on shit they don't need or provides no obvious use.

    for the same reason most people go to movies, because they can't shoot people with a real mp5

    and for that matter it's for the same reason that all the mall ninjas around here buy ar-15s. Your not likely to ever shoot someone using your tactical light, but it's fun to play with none the less.

    Cheap, viable alternative to purchasing a real gun for throwdown use.

    honestly I have airsoft guns, but mostly for games and such. Theyre much cheaper than paintball and less messy too.

    BTW they aren't replacements for real guns, that would be stupid

    only intelligent use for Airsoft is CQC FOF scenarios. I wish they made a Steyr pistol in airsoft, I'd use it for practice presentation drills. I might pick up a Glock airsoft for that.

    I bought a $25 airsoft pistol this weekend and I've already got my money's worth out of it. I let my fiance play with it and an hour later when I asked her if she wanted to try a real gun next she was all for it :bigthumb:. A week ago she swore up and down that she'd never allow a gun in the house. Now I'm picking one up with my next paycheck. I'd say that it was worth the $25 :big grin:.

    They can be fun:
    Full auto airsoft + neighbor's cat = :bigthumb:
    Full auto airsoft + sleeping roomate = :bigthumb: :bigthumb: :bigthumb:

    Real gun + either of the above = :nickos:

    I see shit like this and go wtf...
    Why you would spend that much on an airsoft is beyond me.

    I did have a 20 dollar p99 look-a-like airsoft gun that I shot my friends with. That was worth every penny. :cool:
