With popularity comes the decline of quality, and fields that value making money over player safety and enjoyment.
One such field host here in Toronto, allowed a young player to jab his pistol into players backs and fire multiple times. Nothing was done. Cant make money off people if they are banned after all.
I had a similar feeling as well...
Kids brandishing, having pissing contests, etc. The sport used to be sacred and actually required its participants to be mature and responsible for their actions.
Airsoft has gone the way of paintball...
