    Default any1 likes the idea of re-introducing airsoft to the general public?

    As stated above i find that we lack the outdoor sports like airsoft and paintball facilities in singapore.. and yet they are trying to promote a healthy lifestyle.
    As i understand there was once a time where airsoft guns was introduced but it got banned within like a few months due to over complain in of the kias u and kia si
    parents? The time frame i was referring to was like the 2004? i rmb my primary schl days having a blast and getting active with spring loaded airsofts at the void decks.
    How was this global hobby and sport suddenly iradicated? Now the gov is allowing the sale of NERF guns. personally im a fan but i still think the airsoft idea still has
    some merit. besides just think if u put a heavier tip on the nerf foam darts aint it the same as airsoft guns?
    just my 2cent worth.
    If any1 agrees or have other views pls feel free to comment. thnx!

    yes once upon a time airsoft guns were allowed.

    once upon a time a kuku also use airsoft gun to shoot a bangla in the eye.

    anyway i miss my bb guns, but as always because of a small isolated incident the people up there use it as an excuse to abolish it!

    Actually, airsoft guns are much more powerful than nerf guns. I still like airsoft though. I remember my mp5 was confiscated by customs back in 2003

    well actually it depends.. nowadays alot of ppl are modding nerf guns. some even putting pins on the tip of the dart. if u combine that with stronger springs and other stuff that they do, isnt it the same if not more deadly then the bb guns?
    anw the biggest up side of bb is u dont need to pick up ur bullets after ur done wif it... haha

    I've tried that placed to play paintball with my friends and paying $70+ just to play less than 2 hours is pretty wasted. You don't get control of the game (there gamemasters but their slow) , you can't reload paintballs if you're out (once out, you have to wait for the next round).
    The staff aren't friendly.. Some during the briefing.

    Well that's my experience. I think the one in discovery centre is better, though haven't tried before.
