The community is genetically wired to weed out jerks.(like those who suggest a PAL for airsoft).

This community calls it like it sees it and some interpret that as criticism, all I can say is grow a thicker skin. I am a NAUI certified Divemaster so when I show operators my C card they make me babysit and you should see some of the a**holes out there who take a weekend course and think they're Mike Nelson. Don't have that problem when I show up to an Airsoft game event.

PS...what Kokanee said too!!!!

No shit. Everything I've spent on airsoft in 4 years is roughly equivalent to what I would spend on just 1 scuba trip. Maybe a tad more but not much.
Then there's my travel habit, restoring an old car, occasionally mountain biking, etc, etc,
If it's worth doing, it'll cost you. If you're whining before even starting, you probably don't belong.

well, you COULD become a member of parliament and try to change some laws about replicas, or put up some sort of bill to make airsoft more legal. Then we'd have cheaper guns in 5-6 years when the bill passes

Yes there are a few things that you can do to help make things better. First and foremost be responsoble with your toys. Any gains that have been made can quickly be reversed due to poor judgement and stupidity.

Airsoft is only as expensive as you want it to be. There are quite a number of players around that have invested ~$600 on gear, supplies and guns to skirmish. Which is a drop in the bucket compared to pedestrian hobbies / sports such as golf and hockey for example.l

Yiour bio shows you work at Costco. Ask them to import and sell airsoft guns. That'd be a one stop shop. You could buy a gbbr and a 10kg tub of margarine while you get your tires rotated and digital prints made.

I know it's a bit late, but in response to the whole idea of fixing airsoft laws and starting a petition:

Maybe the airsoft laws aren't perfect. Maybe.

But maybe it's also the filter line that keeps airsoft available to those who play it as a sport, while at the same time preventing underage "gangsta" imbeciles from running around with a replica robbing people and shooting someone's eye out.

Airsoft teeters on the brink of legal destruction at all times. It's better to just be happy with what is, make due with what you have, self regulate our community and keep our collective heads down lest the angry soccer mom public sink their predatory claws into us.

Does that even make any sense?
