I'm not bashing you, I just wanted to see your logic on what defines the line of airsoft being a fun/light hearted activity and something childish. Your reasoning seemed to contradict itself.
I personally think this entire thing is just letting our inner child out and being young and stupid again in a controlled manner, it's all about being a kid and having fun.
If people need to wear 100 morale patches and blood type patches and 'oorah' 'yes sir, no sir' to have fun while they're doing it, I'm not going to disagree with what their image of fun is, as long as they don't require me to play along in those aspects :P Most of the guys I played with don't really use the lingo or the ceremony unless of course, they're serving members of military and that's just their habits.
I futz with V2s, V3s and V6s. I could be wrong... but probably, most likely not, as far as I know.
