Its been said before but shaping behavior can only be done practically and through willingness to learn. Trying to hammer in these idea's over the internets is next to impossible.

But that's also why there's so many games going private now.

People get fed up and figure "fine, you don't wanna learn then I don't wanna play with you." And while that may work in the short them, it also leaves large pools of new players with hicaps, clear guns and little guidance that will eventually water down airsoft to the state of paintball (which simultaneously drives away those new players who come to airsoft for something more realistic).

Hicaps have always been frowned upon. Cheap guns and [repro] gear, combined with the strong dollar, make for some of the lowest entry costs into airsoft EVER. Are mags really that expensive? [rhetorical question]
