People who assume that since some, maybe even most 12-14 year olds are stupid whiny kids who leech off their parents and skipped all their english classes to shoot themselves in the face with some clearsoft. Well, I guess most people my age are in fact stupid and spoiled, but still, typing most or some takes only 1 more letter then all.

Hopefully, with this explanation, I won't be called a poncing paintball poser.
too add on to this, a real ar-15 has little kick it's ridiculous, not to mention holding the weapon higher on your body puts ease on aligning your iron sights.
also it's a legit thing to do.

He's using his elcan to scope out the enemy. They don't shoot like this.

You didn't even finish the first sentence. And I think it's more of a "I've been there and I wouldn't have let myself play thing". I mean, I discovered airsoft when I was 10, found ASC when I was 13, and I was completely obsessed with it. I started saving then for gear and guns, I just couldn't wait to play. It was a terrible wait, but now that I'm 18, I'm really happy they don't allow kids to play. It would be terrible. Looking back on myself at that age, even though I was a mature kid, I wouldn't have wanted myself to play. That's what paintball's for.

So my advice is to just wait until your 18, it will take a long time and require a lot of patience, but you'll eventually be able to play and trust me, it will all be worth it.

Hate is a powerful word.. but one thing I really hate.. quoting a certain player I heard at a recent game.. "Word, B.. I shot that N***a in Da faze yo!!

No disrespect, but if Tupac knew how to operate an M4 and his bodyguards trained like "Blackwater Mercs" ... he'd still be alive and making records.

Just my 2Cents

I hate when people have more gear then they need, and can't even move when playing... they barely can walk, or breathe and can't shoot worth shit, and are the biggest targets on the field.

Oh and players in FULL black Swat gear in the middle of the hottest day in summer in an open field complaining its hot

And players not calling hits, players shooting people walking off the field with their hands up.

The people who bug me most are the older players who have $1,000 worth of gear and a $500 - $600 all metal rifle and say their better then the younger guy standing next to him who has a clear $100 gun and ~$150 worth of camouflage.

I understand that with playing airsoft, some wish to look the part. But thats as far as it goes, LOOKS. I don't see any reason why their has to be "classes" of airsoft players. Everyone's out to have fun.

Finally, I'm not a big fan of the clear gun bashers. If you happy with your expensive rifle, good for you. I'm happy with my clear/ partially clear rifle, leave me alone.

It has more to do with the fact that people who spend a lot of money on gear do it to immerse themselves in the game as much as for practical reasons. It kindof ruins it when most people look the part and you get someone with a completely clear gun and half-asses dress (like mixing camo types) on the team.

People who intentionally aim for soft-spots (faces, fingers, etc.) just because they know it'll hurt.

The whole 'Cheaper is better' attitude amongst newer/younger individuals. Or the word 'cheap' in general.

Theres nothing wrong with buying low priced clones. Its just really annoying when the individual strives for the cheapest they can get, and expect really high quality stuff. Its contradictory.
