What's the crack with airsoft weapons? The reason I ask is that I want a realistic looking weapon as a prop for my films, but when I went to purchase one, I could only buy a BB gun with blue all over it. The reason being that more realistic weapons could be used for stick ups. Yet Airsoft weapons are almost indistinguishable from the rill dill - so what's the crack? Do you need a permit etc? Cheers.
