I first started playing airsoft around 2006 - a co-worker got me into it. i borrowed googles and guns from him, wore white pants+ hoodies, and bright ass red mechanic gloves. we played day skirmishes. it was fun. didn't really care much of the "seriousness".
a couple years ago a bunch of us spent a good chunk of change to borrow a helicopter at a 24hr game.
and yes I wore a helmet & looked the shit
so watch out, you may one day try selling your kidneys for a tank or a bag of bbs or something.....

As I dig deeper into the sport I am starting to realize that some people take this pretty serious. From what kind of gear to wear (is this what a specific force would wear), to running drills with their teams. Since I have not had a chance to really play or be involved with the sport for long I really could not tell you what kind of player I will end up being. My gut tells me that it will be more of a fun thing to just get out and blow some steam.
I am curious to hear from you guys how you play and how serious you take it.
