Be honest with them, don't stretch the truth or bend it in a way that sets you up for your faulty info to come around and bite you in the arse.
Like Aquabat said, invite them to come.
Show them some pictures, movies, etc - or arrange to have them call someone else's parents that are letting their kids go. Parents are a little easier to handle when they talk to another adult about the matter.
If all else fails, physically sit down and TALK to them. I had to do this to my parents, although I know going to a local nerf war is not really the same as a 7 hour flight across the country...you get my point.

Ah, er, yeah the cost part is true but thats where the truth ends.
Compare it to paintball as a lower cost and much safer alternative...
As an avid paintballer, I have had to go through the convincing of parents and while duing research on paintball saftey I found that more people get hurt playing golf then they do playing paintball. And when people do get hurt it is because of neglegence, improper use of the marker, or not following the rules of the field or style of play; and if you want the link then I'll try to dig it up.
I just find it slightly offensive when while building one sports popularity you have to make another sport seem less attractive to people who might be interested in it. I'm not trying to knock you down in any way, just correcting and incorrect fact.

On an unrelated note, my mother told today me she remembered that "Online Nerf" (NO) site as the site AOL put under an adult rating.
No, but I have a big [BLEEP] gun. That's good enough for me!
If anyone was wondering, I'm RoboNerfer from NO. And I'm U.n.c.u.T.! on NerfHQ.

2) is very much like a real gun
3)aims the same way
4)in another 5 years mine will be legal
5)hurts alot(I would know, I got my tooth shot out by it)
See, Airsoft has only good points to it.
But really, airsoft is pretty cool, but it gets boring after the first 2 weeks.

GAHHHHHHHHH!!!! How can you say that?!?!
I do agree that airsoft is useless though.
Just so you know, I'm not yelling at you, but you've probably never played airsoft, or played it with any good guns (AEG, gas, etc.). It's not useless, because it's a blast to play. Compared to paintball, I personally think it's better, cause it's just more my style. Actually, it's probably more fun than Nerf. I'm not saying Nerf isn't fun, cause it definitely is. I'm just saying the airsoft is more fun, to me. Anyway, my very short rant has now come to an end.
