Nothing I hate more than hicaps.

GO PLAY PAINTBALL IF YOU WANT TO FUCKING RATTLE AROUND AND HOLD A "GUN" KNOBBISHLY!

Like, nothing more hypocrytical than...."hey, look at my bad ass gear and untra realistic gun, not only does it sound like a sewing machine when it goes into action, but listen to me rattle and wind as I manuvour like a bad ass...."

What about my case?
Kind of an exception?

I get locaps when i can afford them. (Having just switched from an M4, with which I had 10 locaps to an AK, I currently only could afford a highcap.)
couple of reasons:

1)No rattling
2)Ammo concious, i worry more about making my shots count, and know when it's time to fall back and reload.
3)Realism.
4) If i need to, I can get a couple shots off lying down (my gun is sideways), doesn't always work with high caps
5) Reliability - they don't randomely unwind on me, and are more consistent.

I personally don't have anything against them, if someone wants to use them, then good for you but I like realism of amo control and ripping a mag out in a gun battle. I almost laugh sometimes when I hear someone shoot at me with a highcap, and you usually can tell (with the group I play with anyways) cause the person with the hicap will usually pull the trigger and keep holder until they need to wind again, where as someone with a mid/low cap they will usally only give a burst since they know too much trigger time and your changing that mag again which could leave you in a bad spot specially if the person who is getting shot at hears that obvious empty sound (PTW's aside since they just stop shooting but thats another topic)

I got lazy using low and mid caps and sold them all but realized I need them. I am using my rattling hi-caps. I will switch back to low/mid.

Hicaps are a matter of personal preference, budget, and (sometimes) field/game rules.
If you like them, use them, but do not use them as an excuse to become a BB-hose. If you're on a budget, you only need one. They do rattle. If the games you attend are mostly milsims... dont buy one? Just check with the local groups and decide after.

(EDIT: This was before the availability of affordable low-caps. Now you can get 10 or more lowcaps for under very little money)

I dislike them for 3 reasons:

1) You sound like a marocca running around with them
2) I like the realism of running out of ammo
3) A lot of noobs with hi-caps just like to hose -you can't do that with a 50 round mag.

I'll regurgitate what's already been said. I hate 'em because not only does the realism of having to reload go right out the window, but it also changes the tactics. And by that, I mean they just disappear. Nobody aims anymore, nobody has to take their ammo count into consideration...Airsoft basically becomes Paintball with nicer looking gear.

I don't "hate them" hate them...I'm the only guy in our group who doesn't use them, so it'd be one hell of a lonely game if I refused to play with those who do use high-caps. I just won't use them myself.

I also don't like them because of the noise. It's hard to sneak around when you have a maraca on the bottom of your gun.

Tally up how much you've spent on ammo during the season compared to them. I bet when they learn you spent $150 less and had just as much fun they'll see your point of view

As a few other people have said before this. I like to make the experience realistic, part of that is reloading. Lo caps are not expensive so the cost issue is total BS IMHO, what I have seen people do is buy those cheap MAG midcaps and just fill them with locap capacity, which as far as I am concerned makes them a locap.

On another note as kind of a balance to make up for the fact they do not need to reload if you use a hicap you can only use one; whereas if you use locaps you can use as many as you can carry.

I prefer locaps over realcaps, and I don't use hicaps except in a support weapon role. I like the idea of my AS gun performing like a real weapon; however, 7.62X54 rounds are not deflected by leaves or plastic sheeting in the real world. So for me, Locaps are about as real as it gets - 2 or maybe 3 bb's for every real-life bullet is a fair tradeoff when you are trying to punch through dense foliage or elephant grass to hit your target.
