SPRINGFIELD, Ore. — A new Springfield business is filling an interesting niche, offering Airsoft guns to the Eugene-Springfield area.
Three friends decided to open the business and say it’s a sport that’s grown for several years. They say many people get these guns in order to safely learn how to operate a real a gun.
The Airsoft guns cost a lot less to operate because you aren’t purchasing ammo.
“It is still considered a gun, so it’s not one you want to go out and brandish in public at all,” said Brandon Lockwood, Owner of Tactical Assault Airsoft Supply. “Keep it in a gun bag and keep it in a safe and unloaded. I mean, treat it as a real firearm.”
People who bring in three cans of nonperishable food will receive a 2-percent discount. The cans will be donated to Food for Lane County.
The business is located at 3831 Main Street #204. It’s holding a grand opening on Saturday, April 6.
