Are you also seriously bitching about how long it takes for you to adjust your hop up? Really? It should take no more than a minute if you're SLOW. If you had a Viper Tech, I'd understand the pain. If you have an AEG, quit your complaining. Even then, why does it matter? The rules are there for a reason. I've seen people cheat the chrono at games/fields I've been at. Do the staff at Siege think 10 FPS makes a huge difference? Probably not. Does their insurance company think it makes a difference? Yes. If you knew half a thing about how airsoft guns work, you'd know that you can drop 100 FPS by over cranking your hop up.

As for taking a long time to rechrono... That's a shitty situation. If nobody was shooting hot, blame the kid that was complaining. If somebody was shooting hot, would you still have complained? I got lit up yesterday and I had bleeders, I didn't complain. Taking time to rechrono isn't because the staff wants to waste people's time. It's because getting airsofters to actually do shit is like herding a bunch of cats. I chronographed YOU and everyone else at the past two of LTs indoor events. It takes time because people come in and have absolutely no idea what their guns are shooting. They come with guns shooting 390 when the limit is 375, and complain TO ME that their gun is hot.
+1 +1 +1 to you good sir

This is it exactly.

Also I never set up my guns to shoot near the FPS limits. Heck my GBBR I often use .28 or .30s and I'm at the same FPS as I used for .25s (and .20s) more or less. Guess which one hurts more? The .30 cause its still shooting ballpark my .20 FPS cause joule creep. Plus lets be honest the difference between 350-380 FPS is largely negligible. FPS giving a decisive advantage is to a fair extent a myth, the average player would be better off working at their gun handling, movement etc.
