I hate it when people misuse pellet and other replica guns. It makes the sport and players look like thugs and delinquents. People need to educate themselves. I found a lot of info here: http://www.airsplat.com/airsoft-info.htm

Is it illegal to fire a bb gun? I can see if he was firing it at someone, but to fire it into water?
