In airsoft that happens with us...we say lets charge that building while doing this.....then when we get up there and get slaughtered we know not to do that...

For me airsofting, I get a bit of reality of how real war is...NOt that im saying since i airsoft i know what real war is...But after a game or a mach and i was shot i also think "What if this was real life???" and i think i would have been dead....

I am 18 buddy. trust me when I say this I would love nothing more than the honor and privilege to serve my country in the armed forces. But I know that i have another "calling" in life. Until then the best I can get is war games. I don't expect to know what is going through real soldiers minds from playing my games but anything is better than nothing and currently I have nothing.

Short of health/physical issues, this is an excuse. Many people who would love nothing more than to serve their country, and mean it, go out and do it. If you have another calling in life, that's fine .. and in no means are you any less valuable to your country by answering it. But don't use it as an excuse, you only cheapen your "calling" and your desire to serve your country through military service one day. We make choices, sometimes those choices seem to have been made for us .. but ultimately, we make them.

As I said before, going out, getting together with some mates, and shooting the shite out of each other with little plastic balls (always wear eye protection kids) and paint balls can be fun .. but spending hundreds and thousands of dollars to dress up and play war is ridiculous. Even worse than that, are the groups that spend countless dollars and hours putting together "realistic" kit so they can transform themselves into Navy SEALs, SF, Rangers .. those are the ones that truly make me ill.

And Diplomatic, if you think I'm targeting you, you're wrong .. I don't know to what extend you're involvement is with the games, you have stated, and I haven't assumed. My statements were painted with a broad stroke.

No, it isn't a hobby, it is a lifestyle for some of us. Men have bled for those pieces of cloth .. they're quite important to those of us that have earned them.

But, nonetheless, it can't be explained and understood by those that haven't been there. Perhaps one day.

You know, the Brits use lipstick rounds for training (or they used them on the show "SAS: Are You Tough Enough?" ), so you can use your own service rifle to fire paintball-like rounds that are more accurate and have more range (no numbers on this, it is all drawn from observation on the TV show).
Must be a pain in the butt to clean those weapons after running lipstick down the barrell all day.
