i like to go out and be serious about airsoft, and play a serious game, but i think of it as somewhat akin to pubbing on Counter-strike. There are those people that take it way to serious for my liking (or wallet), and those who don't take it serious at all. Though i think everybody hates the people who don't act with some integrity and play the game the way it should be played (ie: noobs who dont call their hits), i can deal with those people who have $2000 loadouts and play every second day. If spending that much money and time on this sport makes them happy, then more power to them.
just don't say i'm not a proper airsoft player cause i don't play milsim.
