Replica guns are popular in Airsoft sports where players engage in team games, adhering to strict safety guidelines (Case Study). Mark Johnson, an Airsoft enthusiast and safety instructor, asserts that replica guns do not cause significant harm (Expert Opinions).

Compared to real firearms, replica guns require regular maintenance, have limited range, and cannot inflict serious injury. A BB from an airsoft gun leaves a small mark but does not penetrate or cause harm like a bullet would (Comparisons & Real-Life Examples).
