then don't go to get AV'd and leave. spend some time there and get to know people. as much of an asshole people are on the internet, they are quite open and friendly in person. once you're av'd at the game, you can talk to people about gear and guns. I always recommend going to games because there will always be someone there who will let you molest and handle their guns. if you're nice, they will even let you try it out on the field and fire a mag or two.
taking the time and effort to get av'd shows a bit of credibility on your part. if people know you're lazy and can't be bothered, well you can guess where this will go.
