Philip Dressel (author) from Syracuse, NY on January 21, 2015:

The guns are not real, they are for target practice, war simulation, and some training for the military and police force. The ammo used are small 6mm plastic bbs that go at high speeds but won't actually kill anyone but having a face mask to at least protect your eyes is necessary. These guns are also not really toys. Most states you have to be 18 years old to buy one. A child can use it though under adult supervision.
