How do you all feel about military specific weapons then?

Certainly sopmod type weapons mark you as much as a tag would.

really? Certainly you are trolling or are not reading the posts.

Patches and weapons are totally different.

that is like saying,.... well the SF wear Under Armour,.... so can I?

Red dot: I completely agree with your point about Dietz, I really do. However, I wasn't talking about impersonating a specific individual, let alone one that died in combat.

Ricochet: I agree with you as well. But, can't the same be applied to a uniform as well? It has to be earned too. And all the hardships, sacrifices, doesn't the uniform stand for those? Now, do we react when we see someone wearing issued Russian, Chinese, British or US uniform? We only tend to converge on those wearing issue CADPAT. A lot of those who go after the guys wearing patches actually sport issue CADPAT themselves. Is THAT necessary? Wouldn't knock off do? Do we react when someone has US army recon patch on his shoulders? If you're the guy that reacts the same to wearing ANY of the real items, then I can understand you. I may not agree with you, I don't get offended but I understand those who do. If not, then it just goes to what I originally said, which is that we only react when the real items can be misunderstood for impersonating, and it usually means something to do with CF. I've been to many games, and I've seen many times questions raised about CF items, never yet about any foreign military's, and I've seen a lot of foreign patches around, patches that also had to be earned.

If you earn the patches, and earn the rank, and earn the uniform, do you not earn the weapons?

Newguy, I'm with Hollywood on this one, pal. As much as SOF weapon is attributed to SOF, a simple M16 is attributed to reg forces. Take away every weapon, and the airsoft game may as well become a big watergun fight. I think you're going a little too far there.

I think almost everything I've brought up is going too far, but I needed to suss out the community before I dropped money on the wrong kind of fun.

I don't see a problem with anything other than saying "I am/was in the forces" when you weren't.

Buy everyone seems to draw different lines.

Oh, ok, my bad, now it makes sense. Ok, the community tells you that yes, it's ok, go ahead and spend your money on an airsoft sniper rifle and no one will get offended.

Why is this even being debated?

Because of varying degrees of hero worship?

Some people here are okay with flag patches, some aren't, and that's the least offensive idea I put forth.

I don't know exactly why its debated, but it is.

I mean your weapon comments, dude. You are using a spoon, where if you switched to the shovel you'd get to where you're heading a lot faster.

I get what you're saying. But I still got what I wanted out of the thread, so I'm relatively happy.
