Heres two, that I thought of off the top of my head, not 100% facts, kind of my opinion too:
Edit: Oops should these say what the "myth" (actually more of an airsoft "stereotype) is, because I have the "busted myth" as the statement.
*Airsoft is not a dangerous sport for the most part*
We've all seen or heard of this before: kids running around with mainly LPEG's in the streets shooting at each other with out masks. Just acting foolish with there airsoft guns. Then some of them say things like, "Well we don't aim for the face/head, and we can't aim with goggles on anyway". Well, you can't aim without your eyes either. But because of stupid things like this, it leads new players to believe airsoft is a very dangerous sport. Now don't get me wrong, airsoft guns can be dangerous, but if they are used responsibly, just a few mild welts are probably would be the "worst injury". And sure you could be running through the woods and trip and get hurt. But for the most part, if we all play smart and responsible airsoft isnt very dangerous. Plus, I think because of un-safe actions people just think airsoft is for punks, or parents don't want their children to play.
*Airsoft and paintball are two DIFFERENT sports*
It seems there is always a lot of argument about which is "better", airsoft or paintball. Now I don't want to start an argument now, but this is kind of my opinion. First off, is seems people who just play paintball think airsoft is "stupid" and paintball is way better. And people who just play airsoft think paintball is really "dumb" and airsoft "owns" paintball. Well, these two sports can't really be compared since they are very different. And sure, some of you may have tried paintball, before and just don't like it, and visa-versa. But, by no means, just because you don't like one or the other, should you bash on one of these sports. I personally like both, because I play both. But they are very different. I am not even going to get into what the differences are, but in my opinion they are both great sports, and there shouldn't be an argument about it. If you like one more than the other, it's your opinion. And this is my opinion.
Ok theres two I just thought of. Like I said not 100% facts.
Now please, feel free to agree or disagree with me on these, but don't be like "Yeah I like airsoft way better, I tried paintball once and it was boring....blah blah blah"
