Yes, it is a game, and all here who see it as "milsim" with thier new X-7's and other "milsim" markers would never really want to know anything other than wearing thier "combat pajamas" and run around "blow up dolls" with thier pretty colored paint hoses and huge hoppers, and pretend they are actually in the military. Or our wanna be snipers, armed with a concept, please do not confuse what they do with any resemblance to the real skill or application.

No, there is absolutly no need for any type of expierience in this game, the wanna-be armed with book and movie references will overcome everytime.

Too bad the applications mentioned actually work, and have a real point of reference, hard for the young to understand.

Speaking of your literary prowess, weren't you writing a book?

I remember back is 2001 at TWC playing along side you, if I remember correctly you had a pretty bad limp that weekend. There are a few of us youngins that have read and done our best to understand what you have posted. It has been read by many of the members of my paintball club Insane Paintball Players. So do not feel that yourds have fallen on deaf ears. It has helped us greatly to come together and work more effectively as a team on the field. Thanks OS.

The "book" was submitted, and rejected by two publishers. Told needed to lighten it up a little. In re-edit now with additional references and airsoft chapters

Right.

A short attention span of the youth only happened with our generation.

Back in the good ol' days, teens read Tolstoy and liked it, gal dangit.
