Well, it looks like and H&K 94 or MP5 right? It was taken in the other night from an FTA member, you know Future Turds of America. Some kid was running around shooting up the apartment complex he lives at. Well, it's an airsoft pellet automatic shooter. It was originally clear plastic till he painted it black. What a way to get yourself shot. Just recently here in Houston there was a man who defended himself against 3 pellet pistol carrying TOA members. Well, one died another was shot in the shoulder and the third turd injured by flying glass. The defendant pulled out his trusty .223 Bushmaster and opened up on them. We take in just as many pellet pistol look-a-likes as we do real handguns.

I guess you answered your own question.
Interesting, though. I know there are folks out there that use pellet/airsoft guns to make themselves look cool, tough, and/or mean, but I didn't realize there were that many.
I think I would be more upset if I shot some kid with an airsoft gun.
Stupid is as stupid does, though.

The big problem is making that split millisecond decision to shoot or not to shoot when you are encountered by that. Me If I'm carrying a gun and you pointed that at me you would probably get shot. Unless you show some sense about the matter and drop it instantly so I can call the police and the how you say FTA can go for a car ride. Scary how real you can make those Air soft guns look.

Sadly enough half of the guns I take off of people are fake.
I handled a dope ripoff/robbery last week and the suspect stashed the gun from us. We recovered it and found it was a black plastic pellet shooting gun that resembled a 1911.
No orange or clear anywhere on it.
I would have shot him DRT if he would have pulled it out on me it was VERY realistic.

Lots of felons and wannabe thugs carry plastic guns because they think that when they get arrested they can beat the charge because it is not a "real" gun.
Obviously felons cannot possess a handgun either.

There are a lot of people that rely on the "scare factor" of acting like they have a gun, or brandishing a "fake gun". The reality they don't see that if you pull your "fake gun" on me I will in turn pull my .40 cal real gun on you and we will either A( come to a mutual agreement and you will drop the look a like. Or B( I will get put in front of a judge to explain why I shot the guy with the painted air soft gun. I do not wish to do either one but rather avoid the situation entirely.
PS. DRT= dead right there
fake gun is in quotations because an air soft gun,BB gun or pellet gun is not a fake gun. They fire projectiles and can injure some one, I would not consider using deadly force against a weapon that is obviously an air soft gun but I'm rambling and you get the point.

A retired Oakland (California) cop told me that when they started painting orange tips on toy guns to keep kids from getting shot, crooks simply started painting the tips of their real guns orange...

Coloring the toys doesn't help. Teaching your kids not to be morons does.

That would hep wouldn't it. But if the school doesn't tell them it doesn't need to be said. Right? Morons!

Several years ago I came very close to using deadly force on a gentleman that was reaching for his wallet but from my perspective he was reaching for a handgun that was stuck in the split seat of his pickup truck.

Turned out it was his son's cast metal cap pistol.

I really thought I was going to have to shoot, but he finally complied and put his hands on his head.

The strangest thing about that stop, he thought the whole situation was funny.
