Woodsballer Kid

I went out with my buddy today to play some woodsball...it was all good...probably 20 people...and then there was this one kid. he was probably 10 years old...and he was playing and always wanted to be with me...but everrrrryoooonnne else there made fun of him...When he dropped a paintball they'd be like oh look his balls dropped. and then the kid didnt turn his safety on and shot the ground beside some 22 year olds foot...and the guy shoots the kid in the chest with his tib 8. I think these kinds of people ruin paintball for kids cuz the kid went home almost crying. it was ridiculous

maybe the kid should learn to use the safety...if he's good or at least isn't annoying he shouldn't get made fun of but if he's making dumb mistakes i wouldn't feel bad for him i can understand age shouldn't matter..but ten years old is a little young, think about it thats like fourth grade but everyone has to start somewhere and i guess the earlier the better im not sure what kind of feedback/input you're looking to get those are my thoughts

Sounds like a bunch of dumb pricks to me. I would have told them off if I was you, but thats me. I would have also told the head staff in charge. If he didn't do anything, I'd let the kids parents know about it. Not just playing taddle-tail though. This could screw the kids chances of ever playing again. I would explain to them how he was treated, how the staff handled it, and explain the kids age, and needing proper supervision.

Making fun of the kid, and SHOOTING him isn't right, and if you think it is, you need to think again.

The kid should have had proper safety explained to him, and had some tips given here, and there. I guess some people are to busy being badasses, and showing off though...

haha back when my buddy first got an ion he set his gun down after a match and didn't realize the trigger was sensitive and because of him being unaware some guy got shot in the crotch.
but honestly, that kid should know how to use a safety, it's a button in the frame that sticks out. not hard to miss.

But until someone shows him, its just a button. Not everyone is gifted enough to know everything right away. I was annoying as hell when I was ten asking my dad how every-damn-thing in a car works. I learned though, and wired a 9-second Blazer when I was about twelve.


We all start somewhere.

People making fun of a 10 year old..
a little razzing is fine, it's what men do... BUT
who was with him to help him out?
who was with him to explain a barrel condom/plug, engaging a safety, and goggles on/off rules?...

people just dumping on a little kid and not helping them out isn't right, and it's kinda pointing at a bigger problem.

Yea it's people like that who ruin the game for new players. You should have tried to talk to the guy who shot the kid 1 one 1 explain that he is new to the sport and that it was an accident.

Lol I would have broken his gun. How old was he? Doesn't sound much older.

People who don't remember what its like to be a lil kid out for there first time really should just stop playing...

I'd have grabbed the dudes Tib 8 and pistol whipped him with it for his stupidity... but I play my woodsball on a private field, where I'm in charge so shooting a kid in the chest (for an obvious accidental discharge) would get you uninvited.

I'd take the kid out again, and try to teach him the ropes, and make sure he has a good experience of it so he keeps coming out.
