Do you think Airsoft is on the decline in our country?

Recently I heard and seen people and videos talking about airsoft becoming less popular in the country. I want to hear what your opinions are about this current airsoft topic in our South Carolina Airsoft community.

I don't think its getting less popular, but I think there is a centralization of the market in Cali, coupled with bad press and a focus on getting new players rather than keeping old ones that is driving the market down.

I haven't seen an overall drop in attendance year over year. Some fields are up and some are down. Overall very modest growth in SC. I have seen less of a willingness to travel to play. More people only play the nearest field or two.
