when I saw that Greylocks had posted here I just had to come in and see...I must agree with him.
anyways, IMO, airsoft is based on realism,if you want to just run around like a fool you might as well just go play paintball,
the Idea that AS gives me is going outside (or indoors) and "pretending" your doing the real thing. doing littles skirmishes must be fun, you don't need your big gear, and you might as well use hi-caps.
but when your doing milsim, and its all been planned for months with buddies, the match and the hot dogs are all prepared then you put a little seriousness in the game, but theres always some sort of immaturity floating around, which isn't bad since it reminds you, ITS JUST A GAME.
