I often play pantsless...
I had this happen to me at a scenario game. I had sneaked up to a pretty decent position too and could have hosed a whole line of players that didn't know I was there but the girl on the end stood up and just kinda sat there for a few solid seconds. I tried to give her some time to get out of the way but when the guy behind her turned on me I had to shoot and ended up hitting her in the hand.
First time I've got in a full fledged argument walking off the field and had to have a ref come between us. She kept arguing that there was nobody behind her.
So I guess I'm of the opinion that if they don't move make them move. You did the nice thing and gave them a chance to move just like I did, if they don't do so in a timely manner there is a fair chance you're gonna get hit again. I've been in the opposite situation before where I've inadvertently got in someones firing lane, it hurts to take one on a raised hand or under the arm but it was my dumbass that got in the way, can't blame the shooter.

I've done this. And been the guy who takes advantage of an out player whose just standing there. I have also bumped up when a ref crosses my field of fire for a paint check. It's shady but not breaking the rules. And both sides come with their fair share of risks. You risk getting your head bit off because some poor sap got unwittingly stuck being a bunker for a few precious moments. The bunker risks getting bonus balled and the dude using him as a shield risks it not working out in his favor and you nailing him all the same. It's all part of the game really just keep your cool and do the rise to other peoples temper

It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat. - Theodore Roosevelt

1. The guys should have known better/did know better. He didn't move and if a guy is shooting btwn your legs you know that he is using you as a bunker.
2. You gave him fair warning. The nice thing to do, good job.
3. I would shoot him or at least not worry about hitting him while shooting for his teammates.
4. He got angry, cheaters often do when called on it(think how many arrests of guys caught red handed go out while cussing the cops?). How many people have been yelled at for shooting a rope into a guy who wiped off the few clean hits earlier in the game or day. He's cheating or is known to be a cheater and so gets hit more times because of it. His fault. Not saying you have to be dirty about it and go for the neck or groin on purpose.

In a tournament I am firing at my target. If a "dead" player refuses to get out of the way he is likely to take extras until he decides to move.

I'm going to chime in with the chorus. My goal is not to overshoot anyone, but I pull the trigger until a hand goes up or I hear, "out, out!"
Thankfully I haven't had many human bunker situations, but in the one you describe I think you did the right thing. Give 'em a good faith chance to exit and when it's clear they aren't doing that, go for their teammates regardless.
The point is just that sometimes bonus balls happen. Don't do it on purpose, and don't fret when it occurs.
*Obviously the three 12-year olds with rental Tippmanns crouched behind the same bunker in the back row get some extra leeway, but we aren't talking about them.

edit: i've never used someone like this, but i have been in a walk on game where i was a dead man and the opposition actually used me as a shield. i was unaware until my own teammates screamed at me to move out the way, which i did, and they thanked me.

If I were that player I'd be pissed with my team-mates for getting me bonus balled. I might just come back from the dead to shoot them myself...
