    Posted: 28 February 2007 at 7:43pm
What is the deal with milsim guns?

From the standpoint of either a woodsball or speedball player they are completely impractical. The scopes and sights have little to no utility and many are clumsy to hold.

So what is the draw towards milsim? and why has milsim become synonymous with woods ball?

What is the milsim demographic? Many of the players I have encountered are middle-aged men with no military service record. What do you think?

Should we (as players) be concerned with these people who go to great lengths to replicate armed combat in what is nothing more than a game?

What are your opinions?

Sorry. This post doesn't fit there.

T&O is not for paintball. This post does belong in New Players.

you could at least be nice to the new people who dont know yet not to post this stuff here.  He does technically have it in the correct place, just he dosent yet understand that our twisted minds have made T&O something complely different.

Your post imparticular bothers me because you do post in the other parts of the forum, unlike most of the others who have said something along the same lines.

We were trying to help you.

A lot of the people who post in Thoughts and Opinions section do not play paintball any more.

Most of the posts in this topic have not been intended to help. But thanks Tae.

Doesn't mean I can't attempt to start an intelligent discussion about paintball in the proper section of a paintball forum.

This forum just needs an Off-Topic or General Discussion area.. the proper divisions and explanations of the already existing forums are in place
