If you're in Alberta you already have access to some of the best airsoft in Canada. The issue you'll mostly run into is what I'd call "specialty groups". 80% of airsoft seems to be one variant or another of "modern warfare style". So here's the issue; most people consider that demographic to be the "except everyone" group. So if you're a part of a specialty group like Vietnam interest/reinactors, etc then that's great and all, as long as you have some numbers. If I went to a WWII game wearing a Halo outfit, Vietnam garb, or whatever I'd kind of feel like a goof. For some reason though people don't feel that way showing up to a modern warfare event dressed like Lara Croft or like they're about to invade Poland. I went to an event once that was about 150 strong. Everyone was dressed up for a modern warfare style event except one guy, whom was carrying a 4-5 foot broadsword. Really!? If you're are a part of a group that is that off the chain then you likely won't find enough like-minded players to play with. So you outsource to the mainstream stuff (modern warfare style), and invade their games. You wouldn't dream of dropping into a WWII game dressed like the Master Chief, so why is it okay to do it to a modern warfare game? So when these events start having gear requirements or kit restrictions they are called elitist assholes.
ďREALITY IS LIKE A STONE. TO MANY ITíS HARD AND COLD, THEY CANíT HUG IT OR EAT IT, IT ONLY FRUSTERATES THEM AND DOESNíT DO THEM MUCH GOOD. TO OTHERS ITíS STRONG AND DEPENDABLE, YOU CAN BUILD WITH IT, BUILD UPON IT, OR WORK WITH IT, ALSO USE IT TO SMASH PEOPLE IN THE FACE.Ē
