    Firstly, airsoft is an extension of expression. Through airsoft and thereby through the impressions, ensembles and gun configurations, each tailored to suit the desires of the person, the team, and the game, one has the ability to exhibit themself in a peculiar and succinct manner, in proprietary relation to one's personal preferences and as well, to the game played. Airsoft is expressionism.

    Secondly, there is certainly a small amount of barbarism within many. Some manifestations include the desire to compete in sports, to fish, to hunt, to camp and live in the wild; foresaking our modern amenities for a rudimentary, albeit temporary presence. On a specific note, airsoft plays on this desire to compete, to hunt, to outsmart an adversary in faux mortal combat hearkening to such ancient forms of battle as gladiator exhibitioning, jousting, and warfare of all levels. Airsoft even holds similarities to notions like what are found in the story "The Most Dangerous Game," that is, to hunt another human; another animal of equal intellect and equal cunning. Now the argument can be made that such primal notions are unbecoming of our civilized culture and that practice of this game breeds more misgivings. Ultimately, airsoft is proof that while one may harbor barbaric notions, one may carry out one's impulses in a game that is challenging, yet safe. In essence, airsoft is yet another method of release from modern monotony. Airsoft is safe barbarism.

    Thirdly, airsoft, like many other actions in life, requires an inherent level of camaraderie and will foster such camaraderie through the mechanization a of the game, similarly to how camaraderie is fostered between those who share experiences of any battle. Airsoft is camaraderie.

    Fourthly and finally, in light of the prevailing three observations: Airsoft is just plain fun.

    This is what airsoft means to me,

    Sorry, it's not blog worthy (doesn't contain answers to the specific blog questions) and it's here, not there, but I figure it may be a nice little discussion starter as to how we really feel about the game.

    Airsoft means doing something you love. It also means camaraderie. It means having fun but being safe. It means this fine group of people getting to play something they actually like.
