Whats the point? Post your opinions.

What is the point of spending over $200 on an airsoft gun, buying thousands of tiny plastic balls, buying a war looking costume, and driving out as far away from civilization to shoot these plastic balls at each other with these $200+ guns and wearing these costumes? By the time you're done, you've spent nearly $1000 on airsoft crap.

My excuse is it's fast paced, fun, and if done properly, simulates the real world combat. What's your excuse?

I just want to know what you guys think of it. I most definitely am NOT putting down airsofting.

Fun.
And $1000 is just the startup cost. There's people here's who've spent WELL over $10,000

I wouldn't know. I've never used a $200 gun, and the $1000 mark came and went very quickly several years ago, I don't even remember when.

I could snort coke at $1000/day.

I'd rather buy guns 'n' shit.

I don't need an excuse, I like doing it. Why do you like sex? Because it gives you babies? Doubtful.

After almost getting into a fist fight with the father of some little shit that put a rope of paint into the back of my head at less than a foot, I decided I needed a change.
