The world of toy guns is an imaginative world of brightly colored water pistols and oddly shaped laser weapons. Yet it is also a world of eerily realistic guns that can easily be mistaken for the real deal. These toys are so well designed that they could scare you to death, or, at least, look like nothing to play with.
