BTW Elvis, I looked at your profile and your job description. Are you active military? If so, thank you for what you do. Would explain your general respectful attitude towards others that a lot of our younger member lack and need.

I meant it towards the "You havent prooved me wrong" statements that you have made in this thread and the like. Just as your general statements that you have made that anything outside of Tournament Paintball to be a "Waste of Money". And now how you changed your demeanor of the conversation towards a 'why are you MILSIMers' And it's been explained already it's just personal preference. The only kind of wrong paintball is the kind where idiots light up Private Property and people not playing.

I have read through this particular topic with interest. I agree with thejudge, its all down to personal preference. I don't understand where all the animosity comes from between the styles of play, as im led to believe that paintball started in the woods to allow the weekend warriors to dress up as commandos and shoot their mates, correct me if im wrong!

I personally prefer milsim, maybe it's because im ex military, and enjoy the tactical, realism of conflict and dressing up like a commando side of things. Here in the UK, we have a growing interest in this side of paintball, have a look at milsimcombat.com, these people have access to ex SAS, who instruct them in hostage rescue, fieldcraft and have markers which do LOOK like the real thing.

So can we all agree to disagree, and stop berating each other over which style is best

So when the French play milsim, do they all drop their markers and throw their hands up at the first sign of the enemy?

Thanks nicked... that is my feel on it and yes paintball did originate in the woods and has moved to different areas since then.  Pesonally I have played with people that use speedball, pumps, milsim, etc.  I like them all and think everyone has their own say in what they buy.

Stay low, run fast, and hope that paintball doesn't hit your...

When you think about it, A5T-whatever is kind of right.  Mil-sim is a waste of money.  But, the same could be said about paintball in general; it really serves no useful purpose.  We could all better spend our money getting additional education, clothing the poor, or feeding the hungry.  However, I find paintball to be a fun endeavor; and, since it is my money I'm spending, I will continue to waste it on paintball.  Not only that, I will waste it on the kind of paintball I like to play no matter what opinion some random whiner on the internet may hold.  I recommend that you all do the same . . . and have fun while you're at it.

Quite! very well put. It can't be all that bad being into the milsim side of things as the paintball market caters very well for us, with shrouds etc. I also think that snake6 needs to have a look at urban warfare center website to see that the military do use paintball for training sometimes, these people have also done a presentation to our own armed forces here in the UK, no offence snake, but i played against your lot when i was based at RAF St Mawgan, and we whupped ass big styleee, i think your lost every game, and we were lowly military policemen.
