Airsoft is considered to be a modern shooting sport.[1] Airsoft guns themselves are legal in many parts of the world, although some countries, states, and cities have specific restrictions against the items. For example, California State Law states that peoples of all age can use these items, classing them as both tools, and toys. Safety regulations in many areas require bright markings on the items (such as an orange tip). They are officially classed as "soft air devices" or "air compressed toys," depending on the location.
