What is an Airsofter?

Kinnda like paintball masks, with less vision

The internal question has arose, What is an Airsofter?
I need your input here, I think that there are many facets of airsoft, just as there are in the real firearms world.
I know in the beginning in the US, back when I started in the mid 80's airsoft guns were just toys.
Most people thought of them as either low powered airguns that looked somewhat cool or as a 
"look what I got" unit to impress there buddies. 

It has grown so much more from that in the past years.
I will keep updating this post as my thought process matures throughout the week.
Right now all I am thinking about is tomorrow,  the day the Govt strips and rapes my bank account like they do every year.
Stay tuned for updates, rants and general wandering mind thoughts that trickle out thru the week.


Today is a good day to drink, say hello to my little captain!
