Hey I bet alot of us are college students. I don't mean to flame, but this is an expensive hobby. If you want to play, you should be willing to front the cash.

So because someone has the money to make their loadout THEIR OWN and personalize it, you feel the need to be a douchecock? That's very immature and high school. If you say you're in college maybe it's time to start acting like a man?

Again, who the fuck are you to criticize what someone wears to an airsoft scrim or milsim? If someone wants to dress up and "play soldier", welcome to airsoft, that's what we do. We emulate soldiers (by no means do those of us who aren't serving, for the most part, think that it's just like this in RL) and getting kitted out is part of that experience. Also, if someone isn't calling their hits, light them up. If they still aren't, get over it or mention it to an admin. Don't be a bitch. It's no question that gear sometimes prevents feeling a hit, but if that's the case, the person in question probably isn't doing it on purpose. In fact, fuck you. If you don't like it then buy some gear and then you can have an excuse too. Because I see people all the time, even in CQB settings who aren't kitted out who don't call their hits. Sometimes it's the gear, sometimes it's the person.

I see nothing wrong with overdoing it if you're with a group who does that, but when you wear body armor with people who are in camo t-shirts and safety glasses.. You gotta expect that you aren't going to fit in quite that well.


Heck, I use baggy duck hunting camo as my load out and it's so far performed better than any ghillie suit I've seen on the field..
I'd say as far as majorities go, you're on the wrong side. When I play at my local Indoor Facility, I get kitted out. There are obviously people there who don't, for whatever reason. But I don't flame them and they don't flame me. It's a matter of preference. If it was a game with 25 people in street clothes against me, I'd still get kitted out. Because that's a part of the experience for ME. If you disagree with that, do all of us who get involved in the experience a favor and plink in your basement. None of us are in this sport to put up with your whiny kiddy baby bullshit.
