Born on May 10, 1989.

 

I am currently unemployed, but have over 1 million in trust funds and bank accounts left to me by my grandparents when they passed away. I can not touch them until I have graduated with a bachelors degree or have reached the ago of 35. Hopefully the degree comes first.

 

Along with the money, I was given over 250 acres of land which will soon be a hardcore airsoft field/course?

 

I am 18, but have more business, stock market, and other areas of knowledge than most of my elders. I have my Cisco CCNA and CCNP certifications, and am Microsoft and Juniper Networks certified. They are useless.

 

I have thousands invested into the stock market, and most of conversations I have consists of ticker symbols and total equity. Last week I saw a total return of 48.9%

 

I currently have 3 web servers that I host websites on, this is more of a hobby, although there is money to be made, you will never see it. So if you plan on going into the webhosting biz, may the force be with you. I also recommend a lot of credit cards.

 

I am a conservative that can only be matched when compared to someone who thinks they are. I have made "so called" democrats and liberals look like idiots on something they have studied and written papers on. On a lighter note, I have read 8 versions on Karl Marx's Communist Manifesto, and have found myself to realize that communist and socialism will never work.

 

Hunting in the area I live is kind of ridiculous. You can take off a day of school to go hunting. As many people would think from what I previously said, that I would be a hunter, but I am not. Its not because the animals are living, its just because I have better things to do then shoot a defenseless deer. Now if the deer had a shotgun and was shooting at me, maybe.

 

On the subject of airsoft. Once upon a time, I played paintball. I spent thousands on paintball guns, and other supplies. I soon found that paintball was a sport that sucked, in the least amount of worlds. Over the course of a few years (2), all in the town at which I live no longer would play paintball as much as they once did.

 

The end until I think of more. I am going to play Battlefield 2.

I'm 15 (16 tomorrow). I live in a suburb out of Worchestor, MA. When I was in 5th grade I joined boy scouts and soon after got the rifle merit badge in which we learned gun safety and how to shoot a rifle. Though I cannot vote I am independent leaning more towards the democrat side. I love to play airsoft with my friends, and sadly I'm currently unemployed. I usually get good grades in school and play soccer for my school. I don;t support hunting unless you are in dire need of food because I believe its pointless to take an innocent animals life to make it a "wall hanger". Finally I love firearms and hope to have some kind of collection some day however id never use them to kill in any way. Sorry if I wasted your time if you read this

Well I'll be specific for the fun of it.

 

Born June 8th 1992 in Silver Springs, Florida.

 

Went to pre-school, reading just fine by the age of 4, speaking some spanish by 5. Did well throughout my younger years, I was always the "special" kid (not saying I was retarted just that my teachers always found me "exceptional"). Moved to Richmond, Indiana in 1999, started going to a Quaker private school from 2nd grade until 8th. About half way through there I found religion to be a hoax (let's just leave it at that...don't want a religious war here) so I became atheist independently (as if apart from my family). Later I converted my parents to atheism (my dad being a quaker my mom being chatholic) and my siblings followed in suit. Makes me insane? I don't think so.

 

Been in love once, note I was never "with" the girl, we were just friends the whole time. So that might be weird for someone, especially my age. As far as relationships go I've yet to drudge down that road. So that's my personal life. Does that make me insane?

 

I'm not insane, atleast that's what they tell me. I'm not violent in any way shape or form. I do have anger issues, I can tend to explode at people, but it's only verbal, I never get physical. I play airsoft because I want to be SWAT when I grow up so I can save lives and help put criminals behing bars where they can't hurt anybody (aside from the occassional prison yard shanking), that sound insane to your mom?

 

I have an undying love for animals. I help them where ever I see them or hear them if the situation arises. I've endured 3 pet deaths within the first 4 months of this year, but kept going even with that burden. Does that make me sound insane?

 

So yeah, I hope this helps with your battle for making it obvious airsofters are normal people.

Never really explained myself so hear it goes.

 

I was born in Greenwich Connecticut in 1992, I lived with my mom, dad, and brother of 3 years older in Norwalk, only a short trip away from the bigger city of Greenwich. My Dad works in the Computer field and worked for a large corporation back east. At the age of three my dad got a job in a small town of Hood River, Oregon and we moved. I go to my 9th grade classes and get good grades trying to build a future for myself. Neither of my parents remotely like airsoft but I really enjoy it. I have a liberal point of view however it is not important. I know happily enjoy my life and hope to get into airsoft more when I get older. I enjoy playing Golf, Tennis. I like Multimedia and I am kind of geeky. I have no idea what the future holds for me, I just know that I will want to take my time being a kid.

Go ahead. My mom IS insane.

As for the redneck question, I am not but most of my friends think that I am. Im about to turn 16, ive got a 99 lifted silverado, I love NASCAR (going to Talladega next week, cant wait), I listen to coutry muisic but its mostly older stuff, love Skinnard, I hunt and own a 50+ year old(not sure. It was a uncles who I unfortunitly didnt know) double barrel shotgun and a .22. However, I grew up in the suburbs and I know real rednecks and I can easily say that im not one of them although theyre fun to party with. Im a straight A sophmore and don't mind saying that im ranked 17 out of 490 at my school and im taking all honors classes except keyboarding. My best friend, however, is failing some of his classes, plays football at his school, is nuts about hunting, owns a ton of guns, and loves airsoft as much as I do. Hows that for your paper?

 

btw- sratch that I just relized that was april of last year. oops.

I wonder how many other 13, 14, or 15 year olds on here make at least 5000 a year? I'm so glad my mom owns a Maggie Moo's...

I was born on March 3rd, 1994 - in Oklahoma!

When I was 3 my parents moved to Minnesota in a small apartment.

When I was about 4 or 5 (can't remember anymore) my parents moved to Indiana (currently living in Indiana).

I started swimming when I was 5 or 6 (don't remember anymore, I got really bored of it really fast). However, I don't want to quit due to the friends I've made so far.

As for school, I'm only in 8th grade, but I do get good grades - otherwise my parents will take away all my airsofting stuff! (Have any of you guys ever seen a redneck Asian?)

It's too bad I can't buy anything without my parent's consent, and they strongly disagree with me "wasting" my money on airsoft. I agree I tend to spend a little too much, especially since I'm 14, but I do save a lot of my money as well. I hope when I get my debt card this summer that online sites will take it...

I was born and I'm still living in new york. So I'm not a redneck. My father is irish, and my mom is italian. I'm not bullied at all and most people like me. I was starting B team safety and backup cornerback on the football team this year. I play video games sometimes but I'm addicted to airsoft and all my friends know that. When any of my friends have a question about airsoft, they come to me. I'll probably join the military when I grow up. I'm 13.

 

I don't think I'm insane at all.

dude my mom says airsoft is redneck too, and I think honestly I'd say more nerdy than redneck (I hate both but...)

I mean not to be rude or a jerk, walk into any airsoft store and look behind the counter at least one of the guys is wearing a video game t shirt, haha, not like I care I still love the sport with all my heart so haha. , and theres always a couple kids playing that think there good cause they can get 3rd in a match on Call of duty 4.... but really I never see a redneck in digital camo playing with a deer rifle. If they wear camo its that crap that looks like it has tree branches and leaves on it not real mil sim camo.

When me and my friends have our gear on my mom says we look like rednecks, I'm like okay first off, I have a hydration pack on and digital camo, secondly he has all authentic army BDU's on from JROTC and a tac vest..... so NO! we don't haha

I was born august 22 of 93 in valporaiso indiana.

 

I'm not a redneck, and I have no political party affiliations simply because I haven't read in to any.

 

I made about 300 this year from doing yard work.

 

I don't mind hunting, but I think it would make it more fair to the hunted if we only used bow and arrows.

 

I am atheist because I believe religion was created by humans searching for an answer, but I respect the morals an ethics they teach.

 

and as for airsoft I'm slowly transitioning from backyard to field airsoft, I have my first airsoft game at an actual field on the 28th of this month :a-salute:

 

I'm not insane, but I have a deep hatred for a few things.

>12 means greater than 12...all of those choices but 12 are greater than 12. Also, you should make your intervals even, if there is a 19-30, the the one before it should be 7-18. It gives skewed results the way you have it set up.

New airsoft player here, seeing at this poll has been necrod may as well post.

 

22 year old. born in Toledo, OH. Always lived in the city, downtown not suburbs.... I'm a registered nurse, would love to join military but simply not willing to go fight for something I do not believe in. Republican, die hard constitutionlist; hate neocons, daily news, govt propaganda, brainwashed American sheep.

 

I hunt usually twice a year with my family, more when I was younger, great experience. I love all outdoor activity's, and anything that includes physical activity. I'm also a avid runner, plan to do my first marathon next year.

The following ground rule concerning this poll MUST be followed for this poll to remain open.

 

There will be absolutely NO discussion relating to politics in this thread... period. Make your poll choices and leave it at that.

 

Carry On.

 

***************

 

I've decided my parents were slowly taking the media's outlook on Airsoft, and I've decided to write a paper. Please don't argue over anything, especially politics. I know some of the stuff here is against forum rules, but it should be okay if we don't argue.

 

And I know a few of these are covered in other polls, but I want this to be combined so I can right the paper more quickly and have the latest data, plus a neat poll to link to. I'll post the paper up later.

 

I'm Conservative

which do you thinks fits into the environment more, realtree (brand) camo, or the digital crap that only fits in on a floral couch (look it up).

I hunt regularly, I shoot RS and airsoft, I work outside everyday, I work in a machine shop almost everyday, I take care of 30 animals, and I also live far outside of town. I think your definition of redneck is incorrect, I would be insulted if I were to be called a redneck. not sure if this is everywhere, but rednecks here don't lace their boots, talk in fake accents, shoot animals illegally, get in trouble, drink and have noisy parties, start fights, and also occasionally damage property. Just because somebody hunts, lives in a rural area, and shoots guns, does not mean they are redneck. In fact, I would consider rednecks as a lower form of human beings. Just my opinion, and I'm sure not all rednecks are like the ones here. And about the Realtree, it fits very well when your standing beside a tree "which is why most hunters prefer it over other camouflages" but does not work particularly well anywhere else. Marpat and digital camo work well in almost any environment with the same color.

I'm 25,

 

make a few bucks over 30k a year, a third less though after the government takes its 'cut'

 

I would be a redneck if I was born to the right race... asians can't be redneck, right? only white people?

 

I don't hunt at the moment but have my hunter's education certificate and want to get into it this year or next- I just need a friend to go with who knows how ot hunt (I got the shooting part down, but what after?)

 

and currently my political affiliation is... I don't know. I support some democrat things and some republican things, but there's stuff on both sides I'm strongly against. and there's stuff I support/against with other parties. I am more libertarian than anything. I wish they're a bigger, mainstream party.

College student here

 

Studying to earn a dual concentration bachelor's degree in Mechanical and Industrial Engineering, my specialty is product design.

 

I've got an off and on internship with Bosch Und Siemens Hausgeräte, A German home appliances company with a couple of factories here in the United States. They tend to make highly expensive appliances (that are, as with most examples of German engineering, worth every single penny) Use the job to pay the bills and gain practical experience. I've impressed them well enough that they're already offering me a permanent position, in spite of my graduation being 2 years away. I may take them up on that, or find a position somewhere else. Frankly, I've got bigger plans than designing dishwashers for the rest of my life.

 

Either way, after about 3-4 years of working, paying off college loans, and gaining additional experience, I hope to return to school for a Master's degree in aerospace. My ultimate pipe dream, the one I don't actually expect to ever be able to achieve, involves helping to build the first ground to geosynchronous orbit elevator. It is much closer to being doable than most people suspect, and quite possibly could be the single most advantageous thing our generation could possibly do.

 

I've never raised a fist against another person in my entire life, and would never dream of harming an innocent individual. I've never been drunk, and despise the taste of beer, much preferring a glass of wine or two every once in a while. I also happen to enjoy reading books while listening to classical music.

 

Another hobby of mine happens to involve running through the woods in a competitive and intense, but ultimately harmless, sport. It is excellent exercise and helps me blow off steam after sitting in front of a computer for days at a time.

 

All in all, I'm almost as far from being a redneck as you can possibly get. I will freely admit to being somewhat crazy by normal standards, but that has much more to do with dreaming ridiculously big and having a few odd mannerisms than the sport we all enjoy.

 

EDIT: damn, yet another necro thread that somehow popped up on my new posts list.
