Hello, new to airsoft here... Where does everyone practice airsoft without getting in trouble due to the airguns looking just like real firearms?

My backyard is maybe 75 feet across, I would like to head out somewhere like a park but not sure that's a good idea?

 

thanks

Please do not display your replicas in a public viewable area... In today's world that will only lead to trouble. It severely limits your usable area, but keeps you off of the news...

You should find venues out of the view of the public.  If you have a 75' back yard.  That is a good start.

 

In this day and age...Do Not Brandish your Airsoft Replica in public.  

 

You may get shot for real...

I rather use a "nightmare" that shoots like a dream over something that looks like a "dream" but shoots like a nightmare.

Don't fear the gun...fear the one that's wielding it!

"Practice" when you play. I like to attend regular weekend games (short 15-30 min games throughout the day) at my local field. It's great because I can test new gear and guns, and make tweaks or notes between games. It also allows me to try a new tactic or such, and since respawn is pretty much instant, if I screw it up the first time, I have several more tries to get it right in that game alone.

So, Here's a big question, what sort of fields do you have to play at nearby? Is it Outdoor? Indoor? Big? Small? Field or CQB? 

 

That will dictate what you need to focus on.

Ok thanks very much for your suggestions. I guess I practice in my basement if I need to familiarize with the weapons, reloading, and so on.
Not sure I can do much on the yard without raising the interest of the neighborhood.
To answer stormy18,.. I am still learning what fields are around me. I have indoor cqb at 2h drive, I have a paintball/airsoft urban field at 35minites, but it's awful weather now in Illinois.
