You Know your too old for airsoft when......


I saw a post about this on the Team AARP forum,
I then remembered we had one a year or so ago on the NCAO Forum
So, being totally unimaginative, I thought I should do one myself.
I will start it and add as time goes on, 
But feel free to add all you like in the comments section.
I am sure you guys will come up with better ones than I can.


Let's start,
You Know Your Too Old For Airsoft,



1. YKYTOFA when you local field requires full face mask for teens,,,and a oxygen mask for you.

2. YKYTOFA when your at the drug store looking for Depends in Muilti Cam for your next game.

3. YKYTOFA when you have given up on explaining that it's 
"Mil-sim"or "Tactical training"                       
  and just tell you wife when your leaving the house, 
" I am going to play war with the other kids"

4.YKYTOFA when you step out from behind cover to take a hit just so you can head to respawn and get a chance to sit down.

5. YKYTOFA when you take the sniper role, so you can nap a few times in the afternoon.

6. YKYTOFA when your guns have had more birthdays then your teammates.

7. YKYTOFA when you have custom mollie pouches built to hold your toilet paper and prep H.

8. YKYTOFA when the local field has a special waiver for you, that requires you to have your own EMT unit on standby.

9. YKYTOFA when you watch those hoverround commercials and wonder, how would that look in Woodland camo

10. YKYTOFA when your teammates bring energy drinks and powerbars, 
while you carry Ensure and Fiber 1

11. YKYTOFA when you build a custom handle on your stock so your rifle can double as a cane.

12. YKYTOFA When you're wearing both woodland and multicam because 
your eyes can't tell the difference.
