hostile how so?
someone corrects you and you take offense, perhaps you shouldn't get involved in a game where people fire projectiles at each other, as it seems you may need some thicker skin.
My original post was made to remind people that we do not encourage random minors to own or play airsoft. Look up the topic, it's been discussed to death on these boards.
Even your bit about "future of the sport" is BS, it's an adult sport, if people want to be mature they can do the mature thing and wait until their time comes, like everyone else.
Minors that flaunt their airsoft collections and continue to ask advice on guns and how/where to get them are spitting on the rules and shoving it in the face of all who have waited and who continue to wait.
