Airsoft, The game of Gentlemen

Posted by kii (Matt) on May 28, 2012 at 12:45 AM

I've said it before, and I'll say it again, airsoft is a game of gentlemen.  Unlike paintball, where when one is hit, it is apparant to everyone they are hit, airsoft relies on the honesty of those who are playing.  Where other sports require a referee to keep people from breaking the rules, airsoft relies on people knowing the rules, and following them honestly. 


This does not mean that mistakes aren't made in airsoft, not feeling a hit, or the occasional headshot, but what seperates us from every other sport is the way we deal with it.  The other day I had occasion to play a great game with amazing sportsmanship.  Every time someone was hit, they not only called it, but smiled and congratulated the shooter.  This is what keeps me coming back to play with JFFA.  Good sports, who truly know how to behave like gentlemen.

This is a perfect example of why I don't mind driving an hour and a half from SLC to play with JFFA.

I think I am going to start using the explanation that you have used in telling others about the sprobby. It is a gentlemen's game dependent upon ones honor.

I think that is a great way to put it.

basically, airsoft without gentleman = gampelay that just doesn't work because everyone are terminators.

Even happens when you are going out and playing with a group of friends.
