Still, will err on the side of caution and keep any gear hidden. At least until I hit up a game. :P
She got mad just because she found a list? That's nothing to be pissed about. What are you not allowed to at least have a wishlist? Come on... thats just retarded ( no offense). I'm assuming you haven't bought anything yet?

Funniest thing is when you explain what it is you do and they reply with "you 'shoot' at your friends?" :P

Not yet, no. She mainly seemed annoyed that I was "shopping around" while still looking for work. Which is understandable.
I'm definitely not about to go shelling out $300 - 400 for an AEG/gear right away.

She thinks I'm silly for wanting toy guns.

I never mind my boyfriend playing airsoft, as long as he likes then it's fine for me. I prefer him stuck at home fixing all those toys than going out hanging around with his friend at the club.

I met mine at airsoft, so I'd say she holds a fairly high opinion of the game.:P

I dont see how its debatable. $1000CAD for a TM M4 6 years ago versus $500 for a TM M4 now. Its not debatable, its fact. Its like saying the existence of the sun is debatable, its not because we all know its there. Just like we all know that airsoft prices have gotten significantly better over the recent years. If you wish to debate we can debate the existence of big foot.
So awesome. I need to play with this group. All my group does is sweat, whine, and fight. LOL.

The wife hates every single thing about airsoft. She LOVES horses. Solution: I found some sweet farmland to airsoft in, with horses in the neighboring field. Owners said she could ride whenever she wants.
She now let's me Airsoft whenever, cause it means she gets to ride horses while I'm playing.
I win.... for now...
