In hindsight, these kids got lucky that the airsoft guns did not get confiscated or destroyed. Airsoft guns can easily be confused for the real deal. There are a lot of sites advising on this and promoting education such as http://www.airsplat.com/airsoft-safety.htm. At least this did not escalate unnecessarily, but I would advise for the backyard or at least a local field.
