It's amazing how things have changed! With the old timers I ran with years ago, this would not even be an issue, or a discussion. However... in our defense, I believe we were all alot older and a lot more mature then. Most of us playing/organizing were 18 yrs and older! Looks like this sport has really gone down hill hard!
Well... anyways... you all have fun with these kind of issues now! haha. At least I won't be surprised if in the next while I hear on the news that some young dumb-ass kid carrying a bb gun was shot dead by the police.
I wouldnt say airsoft has gone down hill. For the most part the airsofting communites out there are still comprised of organised, mature, respectful player base. The issues that exist today existed back then as well, I will admit they are alot more common today though than they were back then.
This is just a website after all, I wouldnt judge the entirty of the airsofting community based on the small banters that go around here.
