If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?

Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
I guess I have a tough time calling an airsoft range a 'shooting range', much like I'd have trouble calling a paintball course one. Although some of the images have shooting lanes just like any traditional range over here. I'd guess they have range rules for safety since both airsoft and paintball markers can cause injury if misused. Plus neither airsoft nor paintball fall under the legal definition of a firearm over here.
If you're curious about what I call areas where you would go to use a bow and arrows... those are archery ranges.
In the past, I played airsoft and still own a Tokyo Marui G17 Gen3 which uses Green Gas (propane + lubricant + scent). Yes airsoft uses springs or compressed gas. Yes some have quite impressive range and accuracy for a 6mm plastic sphere. Yes they hurt something fierce if you hit bare skin from too close. Yes they could put an eye out, but when I hear the phrase 'shooting range' I envision using something a bit heavier than a toy.
TL;DR Looks like you can pick from other options like Trump or Thatcher which I'm sure no one has complained about one bit.

Indeed. It is too long ago now that I got to practice with this[^], this [^] or this [^] every month. Once in a while we even got some hand grenades or to shoot with this[^]. The bigger calibers[^] would have been sent into the air at another sort of shooting range. But leading an entire squad of heroes through the forest with airsoft guns would also have been fun.

His last invention was an evil Lasagna. It didn't kill anyone, and it actually tasted pretty good.
I have noticed an alarming amount of Spam coming my way. I can only think of two possible things I bought a driver to get my scanner working with 10 from a company in Florida and opened a dodgy looking email on my phone by accident. That's all, nothing more... Can all this spam due to that? I am usually careful but this silly...
