I really don't like not knowing real names.

Maybe it's from a bygone era but people seem to have a problem with "L337speak" and have problems saying my name (Anyone wondering it's Latency, kind of like Fatal1ty). Most people just call me Jeremy though.

Hmm... Guess I should make up a more creative callsign than Brockavich then, seeing as my real name is simply that minus "avich". I lack creativity though. D:

I remember getting a call from someone who asks my wife "MAAM SORRY TO DISTURB YOU MAAM BUT MAY I SPEAK TO THE COLONEL MAAM"

Fucking awkward.

Anyway, on topic there are probably two dozen people in this community that know my name, and half of 'em learned it accidentally.

I use Tex on nametaps and basically everything I need to label even outside airsoft. People have been calling me Tex since I was kid so it no big deal if no one uses my real name.

Hmmm... Would be unheard of to put both real name and callsign on the uniform, just to be damn sure? As in, two piece of nametape on top or side by side?

It's always good to have your nickname on things like mags. I always find mags on the ground and have no idea who it belongs to.

I think in this context, real name is pretty irrelevant.

As previously mentioned, most people don't know my name and of those who do most still call me Drake. My ex (those of you know knew Steph) even started calling me Drake just from everyone around me calling me it.

You get to pick your own callsign. If you don't like people calling you by that name you shoulda probably picked a better one.
