The community is genetically wired to weed out jerks.(like those who suggest a PAL for airsoft).
This community calls it like it sees it and some interpret that as criticism, all I can say is grow a thicker skin. I am a NAUI certified Divemaster so when I show operators my C card they make me babysit and you should see some of the a**holes out there who take a weekend course and think they're Mike Nelson. Don't have that problem when I show up to an Airsoft game event.
PS...what Kokanee said too!!!!
No shit. Everything I've spent on airsoft in 4 years is roughly equivalent to what I would spend on just 1 scuba trip. Maybe a tad more but not much.
Then there's my travel habit, restoring an old car, occasionally mountain biking, etc, etc,
If it's worth doing, it'll cost you. If you're whining before even starting, you probably don't belong.
