Don’t expect the NYPD to come knocking on your door with a warrant for your airsoft toys… unless you do something STUPID.
DO NOT play airsoft in New York City
DO NOT displaying your airsoft toys in public view
DO NOT play in a park or public space
DO NOT bring your airsoft guns to school
DO NOT act like a knucklehead
