Going It Alone?

    Ok, so recently I have been wanting to go more and more to Airsoft, and my team mates are either off doing what ever or working or just not plain bothered to go, so I decided might as well go by myself, so I have never gone by myself and I was feeling sceptical on the idea of being by myself all day, so can any one tell me what it's like going to airsoft by yourself, is it any different, do you feel some what secluded from your team of people you don't know?

    I have gone to sites alone but have NEVER felt left out. You will have no problems.

    Ive played for 6 years, 99% of that wasnt as part of a team... I love going to different sites, alone or in a group, everyones friendly and nice, and you can just walk upto people and talk to them! they include you, its all grand. Airsoft is awesomely sociable. Dont need to wait for your mates, pop off and visit somewhere new for a new experience :)

    I'm relativly new to airsoft, only been out 4 times and i turned up to my local site on a whim last weekend to do a half day in the afternoon. as soon as i alked in the marshals remembered me (my ugly mug anyway)even though it had been 3 months since i was at his site and two of the regulars whose team I had been on remembered me by name and made a point of aproaching the marshal to ensure i got the same colour arm band as them so i was in a team with folks i knew. couldnt ask for much more than that.

    the way i looked at it I may have been alone on the drive over and the walk to the tables but as soon as the whistle or whatever went i'd be part of a team that was more or less working tgether to reach an objective and have a great day at the same time.

    turns out I'll probably be free thsi weekend again and if the lads arent availible i may just pop up to my local site alone again or else take the dreaded drive to a new site but i wont let the not knowing anyone phase me
