Or that the weapons look way to new; ie, not scratched or dented, etc
Uniforms look to clean/new.
Not wearing a uniform correctly
Most troops when deployed have clean BDUs, and most of the time new rifles (matters who you are). Almost all of my gear is USGI and in used condition (except my molle crap). For my Desert outfit, I have yet to do any hardcore airsofting with my DCU's, but they are used. My altamas are beat to hell, along with my alice gear and helmet cover (looks like the guy who had this cover was in some serious ****). My rifle is pretty much new-but it does have its share of scratches on the metal body, and scuffs on the handguards & stock. Hell even my MARPAT Helmet Cover, USMC Belleville's, and my PASGT are used. The reason for buying used gear? to make the impression more realistc, easier for me to get (local army navy) & the best part about used gear is that its always 10times cheaper then if it was new! I'm also planning on buying a full set of official MARPAT BDU's (Used of course) to replace the **** Tru-Spec Digi's I have. But I try my best in airsoft to look as none-civi as possible. My uniforms inside and out are always as accurate as possible, but you can never be 100%.
Alright, yea I know about when you get a new uniform it looks all clean, etc, you don't have to tell me this stuff, I know it. But Unless you guys want to look like some guys who just arrived incountry, yea having clean/new uniforms are great, but after some time in, it'll start to fade, maybe get a few tears, etc. As for weapons, yea if you get one of the new M16A4s that no one else has been issued before, than yea, but after using it for awhile in training an in deployments it'll start to get scratched up, my rifle at work is scratched to hell in certain parts of it, like around the mag housing, the take down pins, etc.
