You know you've been playing too much airsoft when...

Recommended Posts

When you start thinking about how you would make an armed takeover of your work's building.

 

I've been doing it for years! I also look at the best place to keep hostages, set up arcs of fire and all other slightly disturbing stuff that I am sure my bosses would be pooing themselves if they were to find out about.

 

When you find yourself clutching an imaginary gun whilst wondering round the house..

 

Or

 

When you find yourself clutching a real (airsoft) gun whilst wondering round the house..

 

Guilty!

 

 

You know when you have been playing so much when the sight of 50 heavily armed ladies and gents in a peaceful suburb doesn't shock you and you consider it normal as if people everywhere in the country walk around with assault rifles.

 

I also find I spend more time sorting out outfits for a skirmish than I do a night out. "Does my MP5 look big in this?" I'll often be seen wandering round the house in full setup, scaring my parents to death and frightening anyone who happens to visit us.

Actually I've noticed an interresting phenomina, airsofters (and people who use real guns often it seems) actually mimic holding a gun, like it exist but is invisible, people who don't ever do anything gun related make the gun out of their fingures when they mime a gun. It's actualyl got to the point where I hold different types of imaginary gun, have to consiously not do it in public, it looks and probably is a bit mad...

When you move to your uni's dorms and go through withdrawals during the first few hours causing you to clutch and molest anything remotely related to the feel of your guns (i.e. hair dryer, soldering gun, cold grippable pieces of metal...)

I remember in my GCSE year, (i hadnt started airsoft, but id been in the paramilitary boyscouts for a while) and we had to do a role play in English of Journeys end. And the teacher told us to act as if we had a gun, and obviously most people did the two finger thing, but i shouldered an invisibl rifle, and the teacher was like WTF??!? I lol'd

Comforting to know I'm not the only person who's imaginary firearm changes depending on the enviroment I find myself in. :P

 

And with people making an imaginary firearm out of their fingers, I've hardly ever seen anyone do that, although that's probaly because just about everyone I know has held some sort of firearm/air rifle. :mellow:

When you read a thread like this and list the things that you are not guilty of in your head because the other way is far to cumbersome to contemplate.

 

When you read a thread like this and don't have to count what you aren't guilty of.

haha, this is funny, im guilty of basically everything here.. along with whenever im travelling somewhere im always on the lookout for cool places to skirmish (whether or not id actually be allowed to), i.e. "hrm, that school would be fun", "so would that mall" etc..

 

i walk around my work pretending to hold a gun all the time (a pistol, a rifle might be a little obvious), and when im at home one or more of my guns are always in my hand or lap or near me

x2, dude.

 

 

 

Also, when you have nightmares of not being able to adjust the hopup properly.

I swear, watching that BB god in circles like that, totally defying the laws of physics... I was still spooked when I woke up.

When every room in the house including the bathroom has a gun in it.

 

(Obviously the bathroom doesn't need an assault rifle, that would be overkill. A Sig P266 is fine! )

When you cant sleep without fixing that damaged gun.....the ex loved that...

 

When your flat mate walks into the room as you are preparing for a skirmish and anounces: "There should only be montage music playing in here!"

Every time befor you enter a room you toss an hand grenade sizes stone in to clear it.

Done that at work so many times.

 

Instead of just opening a door and walk right in, I would stand off to one side of the door, ease it open quietly with one hand, peer in, and enter with an invisible carbine in my free hand.

 

This usually happens after a day at the field.

if you have a strong like for wrecked up / abadonned places and your thoughts go "oh here would be nice to play, and there, and here we could set up a position", and you always think to who does this belong, maybe we could do something to make it happen ^^

Noticed something at college today..

 

Can't seem to open any doors or walk through them without covering my blindside..

 

And running down/up stair, an invisible rifle appears (with a foregrip for some reason) and i make sweeping moves with it.

It's realllllllly scary what some of you've said, it's like we all share similar lives and habits......... I was like reading through and going "ZOMG!!!111!!! that's exactly what I do" or "That's happened to me."

 

One thing I've noticed missing.. or I might have just blanked it... is nobody has said "You know you've been playing too much airsoft, when you start posting here." :P
