Really? REALLY? That would be a godsend. There's way too many players who want to enter the sport on a limited budget of less than $300. I mean I see your point but the bigger problem is people cheaping out. Maybe not a $1000 gun but something that's at least a decent performer like a $600-800 gun.

Agreed. If someone wants to drop the dough on a good gun right away, I have zero issue with it.

I should rephrase that. I do not like it when some new player walks in thinking hes the best players there BECUASE of his 1000$+ rifle.

OK That makes more sense now. It's like just because you have a newer/better bike than me doesn't mean that you can pedal any faster.

People who have nothing else to contribute to the topic other than to their own post count... Hmmm.

Really getting tired of these 'Baby noobs' that seem to be flooding the site lately.

I call them baby noobs simply because, much like an infant, you have to feed them the information spoon by spoon and be careful about it. And they leave you a nice little mess in that thread they left smeared on this forum like a soiled daiper.

Best to toss it in the trash.

This!

Of course, I did that with my first gun, but still, in retrospect, it was really not a smart call

Now THAT is a metaphor.

When your gun was fine the night before, then stops working in the first game of the day.

I hear ya. I see this all the time and its usually because people have a hard time justifying spending real money on real gear (or at least the quality copies) for a game revolving around toy guns and pretend scenarios.

I make the least money out of all the people on my team yet I have the highest percentage of "real" or quality gear. Go figure. Though, I can't blame people for making wise purchases, it's not like they're going to be trusting their life to their airsofting equipment (I have yet to meet anyone in airsoft who genuinely plays airsoft as a supplement to their real world training).

What pisses me off about airsoft lately, or perhaps it has always been this way, is that every game that claims to be "MILSIM" never actually is. In fact, "MILSIM" seems to be the new AMPTGARD (or however its spelt) with guns, run by dungeon masters who feel the need to micromanage nearly every aspect of the game to cater the entire experience to their own vision of how it should play out. Now, don't get me wrong, these scenarios are almost always hilarious and usually fun, but sometimes they kill what would otherwise would have been a fantastic game had they just let it go with the flow.

It gets progressively more difficult to motivate people who are new to the sport to stick with it when the majority of the games we attend in a season turn out to be this way.

I've been to two enjoyable games this year.
