It's in 'peak airsoft season' in the Northern Hemisphere, globally. Kind of to be expected. Check back in January-February.. stocks and availability post Christmas rush, is generally much better at all retailers.

Fine, but have a checkbox on the sites labelled, "Don't show me items you can't possibly sell to me today, m'kay?" to filter all out-of-stock items from browsing and searching.

(WGC Shop has this as an search results order option at least.)

Thats a great point about WGC. Its nice that you can also sort by price, as well as if an item is instock. I would be nice to see actual stock counts, it would save me from calling a place to check if something is in stock.

^^ This

However, even if it's peak season, I'd really hate to have to wait until winter simply to get a mesh mask...

Another pet peeve:

Organizing a small event for friends, and having everyone bail on the last second because they weren't responsible enough to fix their own problems... and having this happen multiple times.

CM16s, CM16s everywhere!

Add a long ass supressor, a few plastic mags, and you have a "custom" G&G CM16 worth 400$... Aparently. You will most likely find these pearls, if you offer a nice gun for a trade.

THIS! Not to mention you gotta have the right porting otherwise you'll end up with a drop in power

How so many airsoft players will be too lazy to buy a halloween costume and will probably go as generic "Soldier/SF guy"

Gotta say I am guilty of this 2 years ago and most likely will do it again this year. Sometimes I just hate myself.

people who insist on ignoring your advice to keep things simple for techwork... even after you tell them their way is the long way and will cost more labor... and then disputing the labor bill.

Long signatures. Especially people that feel the need to list their entire toy gun collection.

Gear whore that think that buying the best stuff will make them better players.

The people that know way too much about real steel guns when they have never fired one or have their firearms license.

Taking this game too seriously. It's supposed to be fun. Quit your bitching
