To H or not to H?

Im pretty sure everyone knows about people throwing up the H sign either at tournaments or practice representing HK army. It seems to me paintballers are either all for it or completely against it. I was just curious as to what everyone on nation thought about people throwing up the H sign when playing.

It just represents kind of a party lifestyle. There will always be people who dislike a certain clique. But throwing the H is just something that's kind of fun to do on videos and such

Do it if you want to be a poser.

Don't do it if you want to look like you have a brain...

Eh, I don't think HK gives the best image of tournament paintball for younger kid's parents. However, since I'm of age and like to party... HHH.

the whole hk thing seems just.... idk too 80s for me. the style itself, not hk.
but if the dudes like it, sure why not.

I just am annoyed by the followers that take it overboard,

Mark Kressin is 50 years old wearing 15 year old's clothing. How is that not weird?

When I see someone throwing up "that" sign, I just want to choke a goat. I think it's pretty damn retarded. They can't just make cool videos, no, they have to distract players to look cool, too.

Don't do it when people are around you. People will think you have down syndrome.

besides the pbfashion videos, i will never like HK. i respect the group for what it is, but i don't support what they represent. it's neither a step in the right or wrong direction for this sport, so i don't hate HK by any means.

throw the H if you wanna look like a d-bag. if not, keep it to yourself, for the sake of all our sanities.

What the devil is this "H" sign? I've done and seen a lot of strange things on the field, everything from flipping off a buddy on the other team right before a break to posing like Captain Morgan, but I'm in the dark on "H". Maybe I'm just too much an individual, a one-of-a-kind, rather than a follower of what someone else tells me to be doing. *shrug*

Scott kressin with HK Army. Thumbs make the bridge and index fingers straight uprights of the H. Watch any of his pbfashion vids and you will see it for sure. Would link a vid but on my phone and I'm not that technologically advanced. Represents the brand and also been adopted into the lifestyle of playing and then partying.

Idk. I am a big kressin fan and HK fan but prob wouldn't do it unless in like a vid with team mates or just completely messing around.

I don't feel the need to "flash" any "sign" at people on the field. I am my own person, and I let my playing do the talking. Not a big fan of HK, either. Even less of a fan of HK posers...

If one is a poser of a group of posers, wouldn't that make one legit? So, if you pose as an HK agglet, you would in fact be the most legit person on the field.
Plus, wanting to be rewarded for your actions is human nature.

So, it could be argued that the people flashing the H are in fact the people most in touch with reality and their nature.

The posers IMO are the people who are so aloof they believe flashing an H in celebration of an accomplishment is beneath them and so they look down on people who seem to be having a better time with smaller accomplishments than they are.

I really don't care either way.

HK needs to call Joy Division though, the OG party crew.
