My entry for my Journalism class!

Recently the airsoft community in Canada has sky rocketed in popularity! Now some people may see a child’s game or some silly hobby but airsoft is more than that to some people, to some people this is a hobby or sport that requires strategy and endurance. Often when players are serious about airsoft they are usually playing the “Milsim” version Milsim stands for Military simulation and people dress up as military operatives and try to be the most spot on to the real thing as possible, usually players have specific objectives like hostage situations or bomb squad or anything that would require military intervention. This brings up the subject of is it a sport or a hobby? The defintion of a sport is "An activity involving physical exertion and skill in which an individual or team competes against another or other teams" which is what happens at airsoft games but the defintion of a hobby is "An activity done regularly in one's leisure time for pleasure" and usually this is an interesting point of conversation and usually ends with a huge debate. Is it a sport or a hobby?

If you guys have any suggestions or any advice let me know! Thanks
