One of the reasons that I first got into airsoft was the togetherness of the community. Of course, I enjoyed the actual activity of the hobby as well - we grow up as kids playing friendly shooting games, so being able to continue those games as an adult is a bonus for everyone. Everyone can use an escape.
We’re experiencing history in the making. For the first time in our lives, a worldwide pandemic threatens billions of lives around the globe. In an effort to curb the record-breaking spread of the disease, strict sanctions have been issued in many countries worldwide; banning any gathering of people, effectively making it impossible for airsoft fields to operate, and shutting down any and all planned airsoft events for the foreseeable future.
