This hobby is less of an indication of an overall societal shift, and more an indication that fantasy LARPing, a la NERO or Dagorhir or SCA, has adapted to advances in technology. (airsoft) The biggest LARPs are in Europe.

Everybody’s doing this stuff. It’s fun. Of course we’d do it with guns.

Great article by the way.
