I also read that I should get to know airsoft and the people on here while I wait, so I made this thread. If I posted it in the wrong forum, feel free to move it.
I'm not, unlike many people of my age, immature and stupid. I consider myself smarter than the people I go to school with (Heck, nobody speaks english as good as I do. Not even the real english speakers). Upon reading the last few lines, you may think I like to praise myself and stuff. It's true, I do, but I just say the truth. I'm not perfect (far from it, actually).
I've never seen or touched an actual airsoft weapon (Exept for some crappy clearsoft in Canadian Tire) but I know much about it. Anyway, hi.
I tip my hat to you good sir. As said by yourself most events are 18+ so it would be a good idea to get yourself familiar with the sport. When people say stick to paintball it is jsut cause it is somewhat similar to Airsoft.
You have already taken a step infront of most new commers with this introduction and hopefully if you keep up your maturity. Flaming will occur to most people so don't let it out you down.
Glad to have you.
