Every sport receives both hot and mild criticism for whatever reasons. Airsoft is no exception to this. There are people who love airsoft, hate airsoft, and don't really care about airsoft.
I have been hearing plenty of criticism from non-softers who dislike the sport. These people are often current or ex-military, couch potato gun enthusiasts, paintballers, and general jerks. Often the argument is that airsofters are nothing more than delusional military wannabes who are too afraid to actually join an army.
My question to you, the airsoft community, is this:
How do you feel about, and how do you deal with, this criticism?
