Now I am no big fan of airsoft, if it floats your boat sorry to hurt your feelings. To me, they clog YouTube with vids spouting names of real firearms and sucker you in just to see some 14 year old kid show off how he put Magpul MOE grips on his $149.00 toy. But I respect a persons right to go out and dress up all Rambo and roll through the bush shooting plastic BB’s at one another….
I don’t know how Kelvin Crenshaw got his job with the BATFE, but it was obviously not due to his extensive knowledge of firearms. I agree the toys should of had orange tips, but to say an airsoft replica could be turned into a functioning “machine gun”……sorry, just pee’d in my pants a bit because I was laughing so hard…….oh brother, tax dollars hard at work here….
Mr. Crenshaw, I realize you probably are not a front line agent and are some administrative or public relations type, but for God’s sake you have to know something about firearms just to work there right? I hope the other guys at work ride you unmercifully for this one…
OK, there is starting to be a lot of buzz about this on gun boards across the county. According to some sources the lower receivers of some of these foreign produced toys may be both made of metal and somehow able to accept an AR upper. Very little mention of how any of the other lower receiver parts would come into play, but just want to play devil’s advocate for a second and give the benefit of the possible doubt to the government here for a second…..I am not an anti-government type by any means…..
