Nothing wrong with the way he plays, id rather get hit by 1 or 2 shots close range from t8s rather than 6 or 7 shots close range from some ramping space dildo.

Agreed, if the field allows it it's fair game. The field I play at has a 20 foot rule, and I expect people to follow it and get pissed when they don't. That said, I probably would have barrel tagged a couple of those guys, but that's me.

Badass video dude. And that field looks awesome! I've never had a chance to play at something like that!

I thought when you play pistol you have a limited number of shots? So why not surrender people? I mean no balling someone is so much more rewarding imo. I mean if you barrel tagged those 2 guys and THEN reloaded in there face would have been emmy worthy.

That's my line of thinking, especially since most of these opponents looked to be new, young players.
The one where he stops to reload is funny, but would have been a perfect time for a barrel tag.
On the other hand, with a really inexperienced player you always run the risk that they won't know what a barrel tag is.
Either way, this video certainly makes for good entertainment, and I think the conversation we're having is healthy.

Depends on field rules. I've been to fields where ANY physical contact (this means barrel tags) was a no no and would get you booted off the field. I can see the reasons for that in honesty. I personally always honor the 10ft rule (except with my bud Tom b/c we both have the unspoken rule of bunkering each other when possible) and will only shoot within 10 ft if the person turns to shoot me instead of taking the walk.

If I say "You're out!" or "You're dead!" or anything to that effect and the person turns on me they're taking a couple to a nice meaty area regardless of experience level.

That said, I like these vids. I really liked the first ones I saw awhile back on the speedball field. That takes some cajones.

Based on personal experience, i'd rather take one or two shots from a guy with a pistol from a few feet rather than get peppered at 20' by somebody toting an electo or even just a nervous newbie.

I've seen some newbies shoot a good 10-20 times at a few feet just because they're nervous. and that's with mech 98C's.

As for unsportsmanlike, no. It's part of the game. If it's a safe velocity (put this in perspective, most fields chrono at 270-280fps and a pistol will have lower velocity after the first clip). Does it hurt to get shot at less than 10' ? it can.

did i see the gent aiming for anything sensitive or more painful? no.

^^Agreed. Obviously not all fields are the same. Some require the "surrender" option, some don't.

OP, were you shooting First Strikes only? Cuz damn some of those shots were incredible!

Awesome video!

Bit off topic, but how many rounds do those extended mags hold? Ten?

Edit: Nevermind, I found it. Now, does anyone still make them?
