A noob who read the FAQ.
I hope your interest in the sport survives the next two years. In the meantime, why don't you volunteer your time at your local airsoft field as a "combat photographer?" If your brother is willing to take you along, you should take advantage of the opportunity to get some sweet footage and it'll get you involved in the "action" without having to worry about the legalities of you holding a gun.
