Vocabulary for noobs

Well I'm a newbie, just recently know how to play airsoft. I've been looking on the forum and then some of the word I did not understand. For example: Skirmish, milsim. If there are any other words that you know, could you post it so other like me could understand it better? Thank you.

Skirmish is like a game. you do it for fun, not taking it seriously.

MILSIM- is using military protocol and tactics, and using teams to achieve goals.

rather then just running around and shooting things

I'd fine tune that a bit. While they're certainly setup for fun, skirmishes can be quite serious...essentially "mini" battles. Complete with tactics/coordination and teamwork. No hard and fast rules or organization though...very much like video games where there's a 20-30min battle...then a bit of a break...then another 20-30 battle.

How "serious"/"organized" a game is, be it a skirmish or milsim, is entirely up to the host and the players attending.

Location: my field mostly. seems that way at least.
please refrain from using t"TXT talk" or "LOL cats" speak. it is annoying and will get you flamed outside the newbie tank. fair warning.

It doesn't get stickied because you should read EVERYTHING in the FAQ.

And like Jayne Finch said, square away your writing if you don't want to become a special project.
