Malice Army, make your point without throwing accusations of Nazism around.
And Brian is right. This kid is making an initial investment in load bearing gear for airsoft. There's no reason for him to go out of his way to get paintball gear, when he could invest in more appropriate gear for airsoft.
There is a certain aesthetic expectation associated with airsoft, some paintball gear fit in, some do not. All else being equal, there is no reason to get into airsoft by buying new gear that does not fit with the general realistic look of airsoft. It's not a rule, but people should ask themselves why they feel the need to spend money to intentionally look like a lost paintballer.
