I am in no way alone in this group. I can think of more than a dozen members who have been called “elitists” for the same reasons.
First time someone calls you a horse you punch him on the nose.
The Second time someone calls you a horse you call him a jerk.
The third time someone calls you a horse...well, then perhaps it's time to go shopping for a saddle.
lol, just kidding, I love that quote though. You're not elitist Kalnaren. I never found that and I'm new.
I ask that you new guys consider that, and the other things I've written here, next time you think we're being elitist pricks for telling you that you need to invest more then $200 to get into airsoft.
There are some elitist people, but that's got nothing to do with airsoft. In every group there's always at least one asshole, and if you can't find him then it's probably you! It' just how group dynamics work. You have all sorts of personalities no matter where you go; learning how to handle yourself and those personalities around you is really all a person can do.
Water off a duck's back is what I say. Nobody can hate me as much as myself, lol.
