You mentioned serious gaming; but for all but the most informal skirmishes, many (if not most) places won't even let you play in civvies (unless its some scenario and there are civvies -- terrorists, robbers, zombies, etc).
IPSC style shooting also has civilian attire.
But otherwise I'm not sure where you're going with this. What do you plan on doing, running around in flip flops, bermuda shorts and a hawaiian shirt with a couple of mags in your pockets? Do you plan on just shooting at targets? (if so, airsoft is a really poor choice -- you'll find yourself frustrated with the accuracy in no time).
I think you need to expand your original question a bit to clarify what it is you want to know.
Alright, fair enough. I guess my question has more to do with reservations with wearing gear than the use of gear itself in airsoft. I've never worn anything camo, and the whole "army stuff" has never interested me. I guess I would feel like a ... "poser" when wearing all the gear when I am well aware I could never "hack it" in the army.
I guess I'm just going to have to pick up some gear, try it out, and see how I feel. I am interested in airsoft to compete, and play against others. It has been a long time since i've competed in anything; I guess if I want to play the game, I should have to wear the uniform.
