Guardia Civil checking airsoft guns in the province

CADIZ (Agencies) The Guardia Civil's arms intervention unit (Intervención de Armas) has initiated a round of inspections to check whether shops and facilities selling or using what are known as 'airsoft' guns carry the proper documentation that allows them to do so. These imitation arms are used in a battle game called Airsoft, a recreational activity in which participants shoot round non-metallic pellets launched via replica firearms, which has grown in popularity. The operation comes about after several armed robberies were found to be using these guns, many of which have been traced to illegal supplies principally in Chinese stores.
