What do people on this board think of airsoft? I have had a pretty fun time with it, all things considered, but I understand how it can be seen as cringe seeing as its infested with operator larping tacticool Timmies who think that shooting plastic pellets at each other makes them Navy Seals or something.>Picrel
Airsoft kids are more based and masculine than the average /k/uck
>>134331I'm so grateful I didn't have social media during my awkward years.
>>134331Based Hellwolves slidin on the ops
>>134331It's fun when you're 16-19 but I grew out of it really quickly. I think it was the fat neverserved guys in their late 20s and mid 30s wearing UCP head to toe and barking orders at me that killed my interest.
>>134335Yea once you're old enough to actually be in the military it's kinda pathetic. I used to fuck some chubby goth chick who's now super into airsoft at 35 years old.
>>134336To be fair, you cant dual wield automatic glocks and wear anime patches in the military.
>>134331Depends on where/how you play.Milsim West has literal SF, MARSOC and Rangers running games.
>>134331It would be fine if people treat it as the game that it is, but unfortunately it attracts way too many try-hards who think being good at airshit makes them a legit operator. It'd be fun if so many people didn't take it so seriously.
>>134331wtf are red aces?
>>134336I don't want it to be like the military, that's the problem. I'm not a grunt. I want to run around and play Max Payne IRL with my niggas without killing each other.
>>134338That doesn't make it less cringy to play. It just means they charge 5X as much for the venue.
>>134336>Yea once you're old enough to actually be in the military it's kinda pathetic.How the fuck is it ''pathetic''? It's just harmless fun.
>tons of fun when I was younger>there was a great outdoor airsoft place nearby that was cheap>go to college and actually join the army>the place I moved to only had indoor ranges and they were too pussy to let me use my 400fps AEG indoors>one of the screws was stripped on the receiver so I couldn’t change the spring inside>stopped going airsofting>it’s been like 6 years nowIt was some of the most fun I’ve ever had, and it was good exercise and good tactical training. Fight me nerds>pic related was my gat
>>134331had fun with it with my niggas but after the jewtube gunfags started the trend of airsoft = training all the larptards started ruing games
>>134343I posted this on /k/ because I wanted to see what people who own actual guns think about it.
>>134342That's because they teach tactics, strategy and teamwork while you play
Its a good thing that teens are interested in military gear, guns, tactics and willing to enact this on an actual FIELD. Even if it is a cringe larp. The ruling class is redlining on all cylinders trying to turn young men into fat, helpless, estrogenized, terminally online consoomers. Gate-keeping faggots only help them accomplish this.
>>134343It's as valid as WH40k and vidya gaemz threads.
>>134347>>134350I just posted it because historically that was /k/'s boilerplate response to any mention of airshit. While it may be a valid topic it's important to keep traditions alive.
>>134331I don't see anything wrong about kids playing around, seems like a fun and cool hobby to have at that age. The gear and guns they use is ovepriced plastic garbage though.
>>134352Airshit can be pretty cheap these days. There are electric guns that do 350fps+ for under $100 if you shop around. 20 years ago all that was available was expensive Japanese stuff or slightly less expensive Taiwanese stuff.
It's fun if you have a good group to go with. People that understand that theyre there to fuck around with BB guns and have a good time are fun to go with. It's the tacticool tards and people taking it super seriously that make airsoft shit.
>>134331absolutely love it, it's my "main hobby" and i've put a lot of time and money into it mostly via driving and night vision. I think the initial cost is quite low but you can really go off the deep end if you can justify it. i focus on having fairly high-end stuff but with redundancies..two is one, one is none etc. i don't like the phrase "milsim" but i try to get to a 24h game once a month, do day games here and there. during the week i lift, do judo, play vidya and of course work a very normie job. its that winning combination of what i like about physical exercise and /out/ stuff and gaming combined. i have found very few things to be as fun as getting all nodded up with your bros in an urban training environment with toy guns. i will openly admit to taking airsoft quite seriously (or at least having fun with airsoft quite seriously) however the important thing is not to take yourself too seriously. looking forward to a 4 day game in the woods later this summer...hiking+camping but pvp.
>>134331Fun if you treat it as a game, gay if you pretend to be le operatoor. Also it seems infested with tryhard 15 year olds and adult men who take it way too seriously because they couldn’t make it in a real sport.

Airsoft is embarrassing shit. Just play paintball like a normal person.
>>134640paintball is for faggots thoughare you a faggot?
>>134331Great fun if you treat it as half LARP and half real-life CODMilsim is gay.
>>134345Drill or easy out that ruined screw and do a spring swap. That rifle/LMG is far more badass then a rifle from my fleet of obscure beaters. (I'm not buff enough to schlep an LMG around).
I basically quit playing because the game is filled with prepubescent child with the latest COD edition rifle and the annoying teenagers thinking they’re the next Norvitch or Kicking mustang, with their “sniper rifle”.
>>134640I really thought paintball was going to have a resurgence after Tippman came out with their mag fed paintball rifle. So yeah, paintball is dead.
just shoot youselves with real weapons>play like real men>die like real men
>>134331Getting a few guns and playing in the woods with your buddies is underrated
>>134724Paintball is superior becuase you can't pretend that you haven't been shot unlike most airsoft faggots
Every fat slob that showed up new to airsoft, and really stuck with it for years instead of dropping it in a month, tend to lose a lot of weight, if not also actually get into great shape, just as a side effect of running around covered in hot gear and carrying sometimes heavy guns. Its a great sport. And I think the big appeal to it is that its not just another a traditional ball sport with super strict rules. You can really play it any way you want that fits your style.
>>134336Meh, that only really applies to people who make it out like they're in the military, you know, the multicum types with the nickname they think sounds badass that they gave themselves. If you just wanna fuck around in the woods and not be a tryhard it's cool
>>134332This. At least they get exercise and use the guns for something other than shooting targets.
>>134331Played airsoft for nearly a decade, been on hiatus for the last 2 years. Was the most fun active sport I've enjoyed. I pulled my kit back out, I'm thinking of getting back into it.
>hello fellow person that enjoys guns>since you love guns so much>have you ever thought about>signing yourself to die for the military? >ayo lmao jk but fr fr no cap sign it.......i want a raise.
>>134332Pretty much this. /k/ is full of trannies and shills who think they can win the war in Ukraine by accusing the other side of being jewish trannies
>>138860Tell me one war that has been won without accusing the other side of being jewish trannies. I'll wait.
>>138860You get the occasional diamond in the rough, but most of them are gun obsessed yet gunless Spic's who think that owning a gun with the largest caliber (muh 'stopping power') is the be all and end all of both personal safety and capacity for violence.Try telling them that one of us with a day of firearms training would make a better operator than most of them, by familiarity with combat stress alone, is a good way to tell who's who.
>>136077Just turn up the power on the airsoft gun my dood.Hard to pretend if the pellet breaks skin at close ranges and leaves welts at longer ones.
