Can I ask you a serious question? How much sand can you fit in your vagina?

It's only popular amongst those who want their camouflage to work well/properly.

My loadout options are "90s War Movie About Jungles" or "A Fanboy Fad/ Realtree for Nerds".

Thinking I need something new. What's the most obnoxiously obscure costume I can wear to Fakewar without breaking the bank?

(Sorry for hijacking OP, go play when/ where you want. 99.9% of people are just happy to have a new person out and playing, the other 0.01% of people who would actually give you shit should be aggressively ignored until they get banned.
Plus, what feels better than proving a person like that wrong by kicking their ass in their own game? Not much.
Give'r hell, bud!)

Just go for it man. Maybe make a post in the event section when you plan to go try it out and see if anyone from the board will be there for support if it makes you feel more comfortable. The first game I ever played was at Siege and I had a friend with me who is disabled. He only has one full arm, his other arm never fully formed properly. He had a tough time trying to use a full rifle, but he loved it when we gave him a pistol to use. Nobody said shit to him all day. I don't really have any friends that are into this so pretty much every time I go I'm out by myself but I haven't found it too difficult to meet some cool people to talk or chill with at games. It can seem a bit intimidating at first, but if you're even a little outgoing and have a positive attitude it goes a long way.

I attended a few games where one guy was deaf and the other had severe visual impairment, they use to roll out together as the deaf guy could see great and the legally blind guy could hear fantastic. THey were an awesome team. Nobody laughed at them.

Remember that as guys get to know you there will be the good natured camaraderie with the typical verbal shots, but that will be a sign that guys like you!

Be open and honest, don't take everything too serious and have fun.

Cool kids can wear whatever they want if they have the skill to back it up.

Honestly.

Woodland is gold.
Tri Desert is gold.
DPM is gold.

All are dirt cheap.

Mix and match for fun.

$99 "Ghillie" tops from cabelas work ridiculously well and look pro.

Look at that sexy mother fucker on the far left.



EDIT: Irony isn't lost on me, MC bottoms ftw.

I worked with two other guys in a similar setup, and we had a legit hard time keeping track of each other bounding from tree to tree. You stop and you disappear.

One of my teammates has mobility issues. I actually think that the ATV that Hectic posted may be his... or at least looks pretty damned close to it.

I'm a little late to the party but my advice is go for it and damn the naysayers! Anyone who laughs at someone with a physical disability has a mental deficiency/inferiority complex.

Most important thing is to not take it to heart. You have friends who will laugh with you if you fall or fumble. And you have "friends" who laugh AT you when you mess up. Know between the two because that could make or break your night because not everyone who laughs with you is your friend.

You know your limits. So I don't know how comfortable you are with joking around about it, but being able to have a sense of humor makes night and day in getting to know people especially if they never met someone with a disability before. They might be tense/uncomfortable to interact with you.
