Honestly I can't see the appeal of Airsoft. If you want to Military experience join the military. I just would not be able to take an airsoft game seriously considering i've run into ACTUAL gunfire before. Not knocking you for wanting to give it a shot or even as another (expensive) hobby. Just not seeing the appeal of siming it when you can have the real thing. Guessing too many people thinks its like Live Action Call of Duty. Call of Duty LARPING ? you know what thats called? Field Exercises.

But seriously what is the appeal? can anyone care to explain?

I can't join the army because I have asthma.

As for the cod thing I guess it really depends on the age group you play with. You get the kids who just run around like nutters thinking it's like cod, similarly you get the milsim guys and gals who want to do as you said a field exercise.

For me the appeal is adrenaline and working as a team to complete a certain objective; hostage takeover, attrition warfare, etc.

The group I have played with are in the 17-30 age group and are pretty solid people.

I've never had an asthma attack but since I'm on a prescription for inhalers i highly doubt I'll pass PULHHEEMS which sucks because I know I could pass the physical fitness parts with my arms tied behind my back.

I have asthma on my medical file, and suffered with it as a (primary school) child. But the MO had no issue with that when I went for my medical as it hasn't affected me since I was about eight.

Give it a shot. You never know!

If I don't get into university lol.

The army is also a backup as I can get into medicine or dental through it.

I'm currently serving in the military, and have also served in Afghanistan.
But my impression is that you're not meant to take airsoft seriously, it's a game, like playing 40k. Obviously some guys do take it a bit seriously, but then some 40k guys have a tendency to disappear up their own @rse too.
My friends enjoy themselves immensely. They're playing a game not Walting. One of them is a Met police officer who has had his face caved in three times on duty and looks like he's french kissed a blender. He just likes to blow off some steam, and the way he prefers to do it is by shooting thousands of pellets at someone's face whilst charging around a home counties woodland.
Nothing wrong with that.

Speaking of walts lol.

On my very first game I met one that was this morbidly obese guy bragging about marine training.

42 commando and everything. It was a rather interesting experience.
