No, that's not it at all. What I'm saying is: What is the point of airsoft? To mimic realistic military combat. Pain isn't necessary. I may be fine with having painful shots, but it's not a necessary part of the game, so to accommodate others who prefere not to have it, why do we need high FPS ratings in close quarters?
Am I ok with high fps? Yeah. Is it necessary when you don't have to worry about range or punching through bushes? No.
Your first post, which I replied to, seemed to imply that airsoft has
to be a sport where shots hurt. I was merely saying there are a lot of other reasons to play it, and still have fun.
It's not just about not wanting to get hit, it's that some people don't want to have BB's in bedded in there neck because someone was blind firing, or just couldn't control where they shot.
