Only a few things in airsoft that really bug me:
-People who use gamedays as a social event. They either waste time talking between or before games/scenarios. I'm here to play so stop wasting my trigger time! There's time for socializing afterwards!
-People who claim airsoft is restricted to Milsim (or realism style play) and if people don't want to play that way they should go play paintball. First off, the game we play was based around the tools (ie. the guns)...not the otherway around! They were developed for gun hobbyists in Japan because firearms were illegal for the average person to own. They were NOT developped for military simulation or training but were the adopted tool for such things. I cannot recall one (out of the few I've seen) youtube video I've seen of an airsoft game (in Asia where it originated!) where practically everyone is using hi-caps and doing the 'spray 'n pray' style of game. So to claim that airsoft must be played in such a structured and narrow minded way just seems ignorant to me.
One of my teamates (ex CF of 10 years many moons ago) said it best, in my opinion.... paraphrasing "There's no such thing as a Milsim in airsoft. We take the fun and exciting parts out of it and condense it into a short time span. You want a Milsim, give me 3 days minimum and I'll run one and garenteed everyone will be bored as hell".
Opinions are like assholes and belly buttons...everyone's got one and thinks their's is nicest! So, to each there own and leave it at that instead of bitching.
And for the record, I prefer the "Milsim" style of play over skirmishes. I'll take a 'bad' day of airsofting over any good day at work/school anyday!
