Great story bro, and some good info too. Although I do have to take exception to the comment about airsoft being paintballs little brother. Sorry to say, airsoft has passed paintball up, and left it far behind. Mil-sim is what we call it, not airsoft. From a training standpoint, mil-sim is far superior to paintball as far as real world training goes. Our group is loaded with current or former military and LEOs, and they use mil-sim to stay sharp and choose it over paintball, and that says something. Then again, it is still a far cry from "real". Engagement distances of less than 100 feet is not very realistic, but it sure is fun!

That sounds like it's fun AND useful. Do you rent a portapotty or do you dig latrines for realism?

You get 5 lives too?
Why not practice on the range with real ammo and guns, with a real recoil?
Why not try to stay out of sight...out of mind? Even have the refs try to find your location and you continue to bug out to BOL?
Then set up at BOL and do security patrols and posts for security. As you see the refs getting to you, then you call them on radio to say, hey you behind the oak tree I see you, and you don't see us. Your in the open, your out.
It could be fun, but to be realistic, you should avoid others at almost all cost...if your thinking the wild west is what its going to be like.
