That nelspot never needs lube, shoots 2,000 ball per second, never needs reloaded, doesn't require an air source and when the paintball hits somebody the result is the same as if Chuck Norris round house kicked them.
He nick named the gun Reggie.

I apologize. I know that my declaration comes off slightly arrogant, which is bound to get me some extra scrutiny. I didn't mean for it to sound arrogant. I am not the best player on the field by any means. I simply mean its not hard to be aware of your surroundings and that I've managed to watch mine for a long time. I've been shot out PLENTY of times, just not by being bunkered.

I see why you would think that I am contradicting myself. In answer to your question, yes, I've been caught in the cross fire walking too close to a bunker. The few times I've been blasted less than 10 feet that I feel were warranted, I was the aggressing player attempting a bunker tap. I got tore up on the way there. Its an accepted risk that I chose to make. For the unwarranted times, they were odd circumstances where the other player probably could have (or should have IMO) surrendered me. The most recent that comes to mind was a spy player at a scenario game. Completely uncalled for, but I'm sure he thought he was the man for shooting me so closely.

Everyone at Wayne's saw what happened when "Rambo" tried to bunker the two of us. I'm guessing he didn't realize we switched from pump to our 'cockers between games...

Or, he was a spy and he knew that the instant he yelled for your surrender other people would have known there was someone from the other team amongst them. Rather than just hearing a shot and seeing someone get out.

Which he could have just as easily accomplished from a few feet further away.

As someone who's missed someone from 20 feet away when they had them deads to rights from getting a corkscrew ball. I can see why he may have felt the need to get closer to ensure the elimination.

We'll just have to agree to disagree then man. A win is nice, but I am not willing to sacrifice my personal level of sportsmanship to get a one. I'll take the shot from 20 feet and if I miss, I miss and it will play out from there. I don't find it necessary to shoot someone that close just to ensure that I come out on top.

I've never played at a field that does this. I think it's a terrible rule, and at most fields I've been to, it'd be too easy to exploit:

Team pin folks in by laning the windows/doors.
One runner to run and tap the wall.

This is easier than shooting them out or even dropping a grenade in there.

At which point it should become obvious to the defending players they are about to get run up on, and a few of them should take the risk to eliminate the charging player in order to prevent the entire group from being eliminated. In order for a player to advance on the position, there is obviously an angle that is not receiving incoming fire. Moreover, if they hadn't all gaggled into one bunker, they wouldn't even be in position to get group eliminated in the first place.

Well, I've personally been thanked at least twice while bunkering somebody at literally point blank range, for the manner in which I accopmplished it. So I really don't see bunkering as sacrificing my personal level of sportsmanship.
