Right now, I often describe our water warfare as "paintball with water guns."
Dear Ben, I have already agreed with you that homemade water guns are a great way to promote water warfare. However, suggesting that current manufactured water guns do not count as "real water guns" and just "kids' stuff" since they have pictures of kids on them is rather insulting and defeating the goal to promote water warfare as a whole. Besides, in even Assassin-type games, many players can be quite successful using merely good ol' dimestore water guns, forget about even small water blasters.
You have found success and showing off your homemades and that's great. That said, I have also found success showing off nothing but stock soakers with no problems, either. If you can draw in loads of people into water warfare by pushing homemades, by all means please do so! However, please don't insult (intentionally or not) those who prefer or use stock blasters as this just divides an already small community further.
