Talking played paintball for the first time in 5-6 years last week and have a story already

Alright, when I played paintball I stopped when I was 17 or 18, now im 23. Every time I played with my father and his friends I remember them always looking for the younger players and tried to keep a eye on them. If it came down to 1 on 1 or anything my father would always lose intentionally. I planned to follow in his lead since it always made me feel amazing when i was 15 owning my dad so much(i know why now and plus its only rec ball). ANYWAY, on to the story.

So its the 3rd game in, Im doing alright for my first day out. After a good 6-10 min the teams have seriously narrowed down in speed ball. This one player kept picking my teammates off, bunkered one of them. I had the oppertunity to bunker him and I took it. 1 shot to the shoulder from 7-10 feet away. I felt like I was being nice since he bunkered my friend from 2 feet, if that. I nailed him and kept running. He had full jersey, pro pants, a Ego 11, Dye I4 mask, the works... must be a decent player who takes this sport seriously. By the time I get to the next bunker I hear someone yelling. I turn around and this man is comming strait for me with a mask on, ends up being his dad... Gets right in my face calling me a peice of **** and why would I shoot a 15 year old like that and hes crying and never wants to play again. Needless to say I did feel bad cause when I was 15 I hated getting shot let alone bunkered but if you're going to get this kid geared like a pro, expect him to be shot like a pro I ended up telling the father off as he was thrown off the field and I bought the kid a snickers as a I'm sorry gift.

Sorry for the long post but I felt like i had to share... boy did my first bunker feel good though

I've seen the exact same thing in soccer, football, baseball, etc - the prima donna player protected by his/her overprotective parent... be patient and understanding - that kid will be out of the sport in no time once he/she sees that there isn't much tolerance for that kind of crap...

He started it, his father's argument is invalid.

You did the right thing. The snickers was a good touch.

OK if he has an ego and hes eliminating your teammates what are you supposed to do stand there and get lit up? paintballs a battle of the fittest, if he cant take getting shot he shouldn't be playing competitively against other people, if you cant handle someone else s firepower you sure as hell shouldn't have it. simple as that. And hes 15 and started crying? LOL im 15 and you should play with our fields paint it doesn't break and we get bunkered all the time, i know all too well, ive been shot in the hand at point blank and i don't think its that bad lol. Is this really what we want for the future of paintball? people who bonus ball the **** out of people yet cant take a hit themselves. BTW i pay for all my gear, Paint and air, and my parents don't pay for any of it,I'm proud to say so too!

It speaks to this current pathetic generation of humans in North America, who have been babied and over protected by mommy & daddy.

"Oh my little angel is in pain? OH NOES! I must swoop in like a mother pterodactyl and protect my brood! What's that honey? You need a new paintball gun? Well let mommy & daddy give you $1000 for it, because we wouldn't want you to feel unloved my little darling!"

Burn them all. Make them work for a living and experience pain like a real person, then maybe they'll turn out to be more independant when they grow up.

You did nothing wrong.

Sounds like the kid is a pansy *** for "crying and complaining about not wanting to play again." So it's okay for him to bunker somebody but when he does he plays the age card? F him. It's people like that, that the sport of paintball DOESN'T need. It's like playing baseball and *****ing when you get tagged out running to a bag.

Now, I will be fair and admit that if it had been his first time, and all that then yes, give the kid a break, but if he's got top of the line gear and he's playing competitively (within the rec ball group) then its fair game to bunker.

I remember bringing my 14 year old nephew out for his first time. I let him use all my tournament gear to give him the confidence boost. He did fine, got some eliminations, and got eliminated a lot. His second time out he got bunkered...flat out bunkered, 4-6 shots at point blank range....he never complained ONCE. The kid just loves to play paintball.

*sorry for posting a story in your thread, I was just trying to make a point*

At age 15 you should be able to take a hit. I'm 14 and I get shot from short distances all the time. The Dad needs to chill out and realize that if he babies his son that he will never grow up.

I agree with you completely. This is when the participation trophy bites you in the ***. I am 14 and I buy all my gear and pay for all my play. Glad to see someone else that doesn't expect free handouts.

If he said he didn't ever want to play again, you should have offered to buy the gear off him!

Kid 1 bunkers one of your friends from less then 2 feet away.
You go and bunker kid 1 from about 7-10 feet away?
Kid 1's dad gets pissy after you bunker kid but wasn't mad when kid 1 bunkered someone else?

Is that correct? Cuz thats some stupid **** right there. Dad got in my face he might have got his jaw rocked
