Airsoft Guns

Since guns are illegal in Hong Kong, Rick (Leslie Cheung) converts his pistols into airsoft pistols. Hong Kong law states airsoft guns may not be fired with a muzzle energy above two joules of kinetic energy.

Note: It is widely believed and preached by anti-airsoft and anti-gun advocates that Airsoft guns can be readily and easily converted to fire live rounds. That idea itself is both very expensive and impractical. The same can be reverse. Although it is not impossible, it is not feasible.
