Lost in Translation Question. (Not the whisper)

Spoiler:

Spoiler:
What the hell was going on during the first night when they went out partying and they were forced to flee the bar scene? What was that gun the guy was chasing them with?


I was very confused.

The guns were airsoft/green gas/electric BB guns. they are very popular oversea's. they work off green gas, batteries, etc.

Most likely one of the friends they were with pissed off those guys with the toy guns.

they make them in very realistic looking gun designs. I would highly suggest using them if you are filming something involving guns. they come in handy and have that realistic look to them.

Charlie Brown was starting shit with the bartender. I thought I saw him throw a glass at the floor when the bartender pulled out his bb gun.

But what you link to doesn't look like what was in the movie. In the movie that gun had flashing lights and stuff on it. It looked very Buck Rodgers.

the link was to describe green gas as it was asked about.

http://www.precisionairsoft.com/index.htm
or
http://www.bm-bikershop.com/tokyo_ma...rsoft_guns.htm

Much like cell phones, you can add whatever amount of crappy lights and flashing shit you would like to the airsoft weapon. the link is just one of many different companies who make the toys.

To put it simply and to answer the guys two questions.. As stated above, was causing shit in the bar and the guy was shooting a popular type of BB gun.

Do these airguns shoot real BBs? The kind that will actually break the skin and/or put someone's eye out?!

They are not metal BBs. They are a really hard plastic. The Battery, Gas powered Guns will break the skin & put out eyes. They will go threw a coke can with no problem. I'll post pictures of the 3 i got when i get home. I have an AK-47, 9MM & Sniper Rifle. The 9MM takes 4 AAs & is Semi-Auto. The AK-47 takes 8 AAs and has Semi & Auto Settings. The Sniper Rifle takes Gas & is Semi-Auto. All three guns are very powerful and aren't toys. The Air Pump guns just sting like crazy, they won't break the skin, but you will get a bruse.

A similar thing happened to me while out in the town in Tokyo and I was SO confused. They were after someone else, not me, but still. I was at first scared, then confused, and then the whole thing turned into one big "What the hell?" I laughed my ass off when I saw that in a movie.

I was also at a water park when some guy dressed in some gumby looking thing shot me with a laser gun, but at that point, I was used to it.
