My mum seems to have a mixed view on it. On the one hand, she thinks it's wrong, and I shouldn't be doing it. She's not happy about having IFs in the house, or the money. On the other hand, I think she's just come to expect it, and realises that there's much worse I could be doing...

PAINTBALL :lol:

Err, I mean comitting crime.

She considers it to be 'eccentric' - my Dad is also military-interested (although he's more into classical, being an armour and sword fan). And, as an eccentric, I like that. I've been called worse.

 

My sister thinks its nuts (cleanest word I could find :lol: ), but then since she's at Uni it doesn't matter.

 

I found two of the girls I know are interested by it. Completely surprised by that, I won't lie, they seemed like the traditional 'girly-girls'. Had a few interesting conversations about it.

haha my dad tried to get my mum to go once but she did't go. My dads reasoning was that if she got into airsoft she would let us buy more guns

I think part of the reasoning behind me being able to have airsofting gear is that I'm also a kendo-practicer (is their actually a collective noun for practicers of Kendo?), and have shown that I'm perfectly capable of handling large wooden, and metal swords, without causing harm to others.

Or the house :lol:

Should ask Nutster about what happened to his mother when one of the other members of the mod team 'accidentally' shot her :lol:

Oh that was F(&^*** so funny :) It was our first skrimish

 

Basically we were set up outside the site and we had about 6 people there we needed our parents as we weren't old enough to drive at the time, so were all having a chat when I point out Andy was aiming the end of his barrel towards Nutsters mum's Leg when he says

 

"Dont worry its on safe, see?" *Pulls the trigger* and gun goes off "The safety switch had been flipped off while being held in a sling against his Vest, was an old TM m4 so this is quite common for a VERY VERY light plastic switch*

 

Shoots Nutster mum in the leg and shes hopping up and down for ages screaming Ow!

 

Then he says "Whats its only like 280FPS" :P

 

Everyone proceeds to laugh at Nutsters mum overreaction. (Although I think she was in a bit of pain, bless)

 

anyway if you were there was 100X funnier :P
