we understand your gripe and your view.
you just can't get around it, it's not safe to carry that around on you like that. Some kids in my neighborhood were playing around with paintball guns just shooting houses... turns out they were caught and they had 3 6mm handguns on them with a total of 75 6mm bullets. who knows what they had planned? the guns also turned out to be stolen and the kids were only 17.
you dont know what people are thinking or doing now a days, and paintballers are no exception. We shouldn't fight this fact, we should adapt to it and change our ways to keep the sport in a good light with the public.
