    I remember that. We kids shot thousands of BB`s and pellets. And our eyes were good enough to track them out of the bbl. shooting arial targets.
    I can`t see a .308 bullet. But I know where it is going still.

    I didn't get any pictures!! Dag nabbit! :D

    It was pretty cool & I'd do it again. I've got this zit-looking blemish on my cheek from getting hit. It didn't hurt and never thought it'd leave a mark. :eek:

    We shoot with a PA group... They only play at legal sanctioned fields (Paintball fields). Your guns have to be chrono'd and must be below 400FPS with .020 BB's. Depending on your FPS of your gun - you have minimum engagement distances to comply with. You're not allowed to shoot someone close up -as that can hurt.

    I was doing pretty good....making shots, crawling around in the dirt...
    The one scenario - I got shot in the leg. Which - according to their rules, your leg is un-usable. So - I crawled on my elbows. :eek:

    Boy...my legs are surely hurtin' today!!

    This small town I live in has this place that I bought my AEG from. They are really into events and upgrades. It's pretty cool!

    I guess there is a pretty serious community that these folks are fostering. They are more into paintball, but the airsoft community is catching up.

    I've never done paintball myself but from what I hear (and have seen on the skin of friends) that is hurts like hell and leaves HUGE welts.

    Airsoft doesn't hurt - it stings slightly if you get hit pretty close-up. It can leave welts, but they're little and don't swell up. I'm old...and can't handle the pain. :D

    The group I shoot with has strict rules of different fps & footage. You can't shoot an automatic gun any hotter than 400fps and engagement distance is 25 feet I believe.

    It hurts if you're just standing there and your buddy pops you unexpectedly..but when you're out on the field and the adrenaline is going you don't notice it too much. I usually play with dickies pants and a t-shirt, and a face mask of course

    don't get into Airsoft.... airsoft is for posers, get a paintball gun or get a real gun.

    Too late - already doing it! And I have a few real guns.

    Like I said, I'm old and don't like the pain.....so paintball is out.

    Venting frustrations and shooting at people is actually fun. Can't do that with real guns. :D
