Boy Successfully Defends Home from Burglars with Airsoft

Gungho Cowboy

Now for something that we always talk about among airsoft players, can airsoft help defend our property? In some cases, yes, but we do not recommend you actually doing it since there might be burglars who are dangerously armed.
