No, definitely not. Whole point here is about sharing opinions and discussing. And thanks for contributing Whiteknight.
For the folks who had been in real fights, in war for example paintball and airsoft does not have too much similarities with it. After all it is game. Maybe there are some scenarios in airsoft that can bring it to reality little bit closer, I like it much more then paintball, and weapon looks real there anyway.
Simply in real gunfight stakes are much higher, so whole “game” concept is different (you lose game-you die, your opponent lose game-he dies, in front of your eyes probably). It is hard to mimic that.
But yea, some things can be practiced there. Team work for example, call signs, moving, sheltering-hiding etc.
