If there is a death to paintball or other war games I think it will be the economy that will play the major role. I have never played airsoft but have considered it by the many invitations I have received to do so especially as a tanker. I have not considered playing airsoft because the markers look more realistic. When I am being shot at or shooting at someone I dont think about what a marker looks like when they are shooting at me. If the creator of this post has lost all his friends to airsoft maybe he should consider playing with them on occasion if he values being around them.. If not start over and find more paintball friends like another poster mentioned,

My concern as a tanker is when all fields say you cannot bring your tank here if you dont have insurance. I dont have insurance because I cannot get it in my state for my vehicle because it has the modified capability of shooting projectiles from it. But thats another story on another post. I can see the point of playing airsoft because of being less expensive in many ways plus you stay cleaner. Now this thing of being honorable after getting hit with a BB or busted PB still has it issues with me. You cannot wipe in airsoft. So if your not honorable in paintball my assumption is your trends wont change in airsoft.

Cromagnum Tankerman,

If you haven't looked into Ferg's Fulda Gap AirSoft
event, you really need to. Over 1,000 Airsoft players
plus numerous Nerf firing tanks. Of course he also
runs Fulda Gap for PB, so there's 2-3 events worth
attending. As for AirSoft not hurting, just ask the
idot who didn't wear a full mask, who lost a tooth,
if it hurts. Pellets many not weigh much, but when
you get shot at close range by something going
400+ FPS, it's got to sting.. RTO, depending on
the model, can also be pretty high and mag Cap
is way more than 30 rds in a real M16, plus no
HPA or CO2, just a rechargable battery.

While somewhat off topic, I'd like to share this
clip link with everyone. It's from the Bunker's
owner, Dewayne Covirs. In it he announces a
new contest for this year, designed to bring in
more of the MilSim players. 200 bucks to the
winners, plus several entries to next year's
D-Day. Also want to share Eric's latest work
of art, a realistic 1903 Springfield bolt action
model which he built for a D-Day player...

Eric's new 1903 Springfield Rifle..

Dorsai, I have been asked by the ODX people to come to their airsoft big game. I may sometime in the future. I just havent yet. I never said airsoft hits dont hurt. I basically said was will people be honorable to take themselves out when hit. It was a comparison to those in paintball that wipe.

Like anything it depends on who you happen to
run into. Back in the day, when I ran my own
team, 'dorsai' we were known for the level of
honesty with which we played, even if the other
side didn't. Today the only event I have any
real experience with is D-Day. There you've
got players from around the world, who are
all part of the various military units which
actually fought in WW II. I know, they also
0have groups repersenting some of the same
units at loads of other pb games. Where there's
a difference is that at D-Day those groups are
being reminded of who they represent for an
entire week. By the end of that week of this
indroctrination it's hard to find anyone who
would even think of dishonoring their unit.
Yeah, I know, I make it sound like we're a
bunch of boy scouts and that's anything
but the case. We drink, some too much,
but if we get hit we take the walk. No, not
everyone does, but far fewer than you're
apt to see anywhere else. Heck, two weeks
later these same players might be the ones
you see cheating where you play, although I
doubt it, but by and large they don't do it
out there.

Go figure?

Dorsai, I can remember back in the 90's there was a pro PB team called the All Americans. I dont know if they are still around. But they had a top player that always said he never cheated or wiped from getting hit while playing paintball. Well behold he was seen on a vid someplace wiping while he was hiding behind something during a high level match. Of coarse he had issues after that at many levels I heard. So you see everyone has probably done it one time or another. Heck I may have done it myself years ago but dont really recall now. Its hard for me to wipe as a tanker. I am glad to hear the air soft players are more honest about getting hit then us paintballers.

I'm pretty sure everyone has transgressed once or
twice during a game, but some folks make a habit
of it, or worse they find ways to avoid being caught.

I can still recall one guy who sprayed his outfit with
heavy duty Scotch Guard (Silicone). Pellets that hit
broke when they hit, but the paint just 'bounded off.'
Another trick that I'm sure most know is wearing a
jersey that's at least 2 sizes too large.

As another guy I know, who also happens to be a well
known scenario promoter, always used to tell me, "It
ain't cheating unless you're caught."
