I have found that I usually hear a hit or actually see a BB bounce off than actually feel it.
I should add that one of the guys who I clearly blasted yelled at me for hitting him in the face. But yeah, these guys were geared to the nines, so I understand that can hinder the shot being felt. I called myself out when I felt the tiniest "Plink" anywhere on my body or gun, trying to be honest. Oh well.
I was just speaking my friend who invited me and he said "I asked around and this group is known for cheating". He won't be playing with them again which is a plus. Next event I will go out again with a different group and see how it plays out.
