If an impressionist wants to portray a certain look then that patch can be the difference between a generic infantry soldier and an advanced SF member, thus negating any attempt to portray the appreciation for portraying the SF instead of a generic soldier.
Personally, I'd be flattered if someone who is part of a milsim group (like airsoft) thinks so highly of that group that he would go the extra mile to locate spare patches of certain SF units as an homage. Imitation is the biggest form of flattery. Until someone who has actually served in an SF unit has a problem with someone kitting up (patches and all) then its a non-issue.
Please get familiar with the stickies at MP.NET: http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums...soft-Paintball
You should really read the stickies about
Using military speciality names for airsoft teams: http://www.militaryphotos.net/forums...-airsoft-teams
All hell breaks loose if someone is spotted with un-earned patches over there. Wonder why?
So that you'll know- the rules aren't made by airsofters. Are you a poser??
My pet peeve: Pictures of airsofters with all those blacked out faces etc is utterly stupid and lame. And i truly hate posers
