    6. The feeling after a skirmish.

    2- New gun smell
    3- Shotgunning people with 8mm goodness :p
    4- blending in with other gun nuts :p
    5- modifying and customising my guns
    6- Running low on ammo in an intense game and being ''forced'' to use my pistols ;)
    7- Pistol kills
    8- cqb Kill rampages using up to 3 or 4 different guns in an insane minute.
    9-The feeling when ya see the postman coming to the door with a parcel

    1. The fact that people in work leave me alone because I'm that "guy that looks at guns on the internet all day"
    2. Flanking a group of players defending a base, and taking them all out with bang kills.
    3. Chats with Mel & Paul in HRTA.
    4. You get to be part of a team with a cool name/logo.
    5. Taking part in special evens (T4BB, Salute!)
    6. Shooting the marshals when they aren't looking....erm, maybe I shouldn't have said that here.
    7. This forum gives me something to do at 4am in the morning when I can't sleep.
    8. I get more excercise in 1 hour of skirmishing that I do in the rest of the week combined.
    9. Shooting that 1 inch of exposed body part when someone is trying to hide behind a pallet/wall etc.
    10. Finding that perfect hiding spot in a game of Sniper Hunt.
    11. Muddy clothes are a benefit in airsoft. Can't say the same about your normal clothing.
    12. The next burglar that breaks into my house is gonna be very surprised/scared.

    1. The guns
    2. The gear I get to wear without any strange looks(which is also better gear than I got in the RDF)
    3. The possibility of owning a M16
    4. My iminent purchase of an SR-25
    5. Running around, jumping in ditches/trenches/agaisnt pallets
    6. Every so often having my primary shot, and 'having' to use my beretta
    7. Making people cowar behind cover
    8. A nicely executed flanking manouver, resulting in many hits to the enemy
    9. Meeting new friends...........and shooting them!
    10. Looking foward to every second weekend

    Lets try to get this thread going again, as the other thread is up to 20 pages at this stage and I'm sure, we can all think of at least 10 things we really like or even love about Airsoft :)

    No better feeling than being behind the enemy and letting them walk by you and waiting for the perfect clear shot to line up.
