I agree to a certain extent. I mean, c'mon. You're going to play paintball, not golf. It'll hurt for a bit, maybe leave a bruise, but you'll heal.

On the other hand, I get pretty pissed off when the Agglets want to paint up the renters like it's target practice.

On that note..

Back in November, one of those Agglets asked me what it meant to "GOG."

I don't think you know what "coddling" means.

Asking people not to shoot a renter 20 times in the back is not coddling which is something you seem to have an issue with for no apparent reason.

i have to agree with the first guy. PAP now has a recball rule where if you come face to face with another player, you have to yell "bang", not actually shoot each other. you can bunker an entire structure by banging on a wall....this is paintball people. if you're afraid to get hit, this isnt the sport for you. i agree that you shouldnt bunker rec players, but in paintball, face to face is always a trade out not "im a *****, plz dont shoot me."

Agreed. Especially since half of all renters don't follow the surrender rule and they just turn around and shoot you.

I personally don't like the surrender rule but when it's in place I expect it to be respected and when someone doesn't surrender and shoots me in turn I give them however many shots I can pump out before the ref gets there

Oh I bunker renters all the time because the last several times I tried to surrender them they would try and spin or do something stupid that usually resulted in them getting shot more than the one ball I would put into them if I bunkered them. As long as you don't overshoot them I don't see a problem with bunkering.

It's when you have *******s putting 5+ shots into the back of a renter's head that I start having problems.

I know perfectly well what 'coddling' means, which is why I typed it.

The other posts since have clarified my feelings on the subject.

Funniest thing- Back when the spyder rocking trigger came out. Kid at the field says "I am getting fast at walking the trigger. I hit 50bps". My son responds with "how do you know you shot that fast"? Kid- "I counted". LOL! We simply said "man you are fast" and walked away.

When I get shot by your gun it hurts worse than when I shoot you. This was from my daughter's boyfriend (he plays football) using another of my markers. I chrono every marker the day before I go to the field and they were within +/- 5 FPS.

facepalm towards your daughters bf and to you my man. chrono your gun at the field the day you are playing, NOT the day before. there are too many conditions that can change that change the velocity (temp, humidity, paint, etc...). so maybe, your gun was shooting harder....

Semi,ramp,full auto, doesn't matter. stop shooting up kids you're better than. Even if they have nice gear, doesn't matter, have some class or your lower than they are on my **** list.

I'm done with these threads.

While the one about the guys shooting the sky after taking off their masks was gold, and the black ops star wars team killer was hilarious, this is how I feel about most of the stuff I'm seeing on here. I'd say it's a safe bet to say when most kids tell you to slow it down they're not planning on shooting faster than you. I'm sure there are those that do, but I'd say the majority do not. What I see more of though are people using egos and mini's against kids sporting rental 98 customs, and after lighting them up feeling accomplished about it. I also like the people who think they're just too good to play people like that, as if you can't handicap yourself in a variety of ways to even things out. Hell you can just shoot around them and give them a chance to take you out, a "skilled" player, perhaps make them feel good and have stories for their friends, whom they might get to come out next time.

Honestly I'd rather play on the side of the kids any day. You might get some stinkers who actually hide behind things and never point their guns or even look around no matter how hard you try to motivate them, but man the suicidal ones are fun to have by your side.

2vs2 after bunkering the last player in under 30 seconds the ref says, "Wow dude, I like your style." Another guy, "Man he just ran like a bat out of hell."
Ref, "Did you film it?"
Me, "What??"
"Did you film it?" pointing to the pneumatics.
"Oh this? This is part of my autococker."

Not really stupid, just ignorant. I am getting too old school. I think playing 6 vs 30 the players on my team that were the six thought I was filming as well, but I didn't understand that they were talking to me.

There was a kid at my field a couple weekends ago that was flipping out and going on and on about how much paintball was like Halo 4. I'm sure I've got better ones, just can't remember them right now.
