I used to play paintball, and got into airsoft toward the end of this year. I have a lot of fun plinking with my airsofts and chatting with the knowledgeable folk here on ASC about tweaks and tips for getting the most out of them. I personally don't feel obligated to field my airsoft rifle to justify its purchase. I'm currently quite content to take it apart, put it back together and shoot holes in everything in my apartment with it. Chairsoft Pride!
