guns are fun... really...really fun and so are bows and cross bows.
we use bows with fishing reels on them to spear flounder.
Barking regulations here bans Airsoft, paintball, and BB guns. The only legit thing here is nerf. Oh well, in a country as small as mine, it's safer to just ban these sorts of thing, lest a riot breaks out. (My country is only 64km from tip to tip XD)
The only legit guns that inflict pain are heavily modified air compression nerf guns, deals similar damage as paintball, except you pump the air yourself, instead of having compressed air tanks like in airsoft or paintball...
