I wonder if the drama queens actually realize the damage they are doing to fields they play at.

barrel bag would be fine in this day and age, i don't know how much trust i would put in giving a bunch of people on a public field one more tool to wipe with...

as far as the drama queens go, paintball is a thing that sometimes catches the attention of people with messed up aggression issues. So, even if they DO know, they obviously don't care.

can't say personally, last time i was on a pay to play field was oct of 2000.

actually skipped out on some outlaw games recently as well. could've been my first games in 12 years, but these kids lacked all common sense.

I'm just going to wait till i get settled in ohio then start stalking Free Enterprise. he'll be pretty close, and judging by his videos, they run my kind of game.

If he calls himself out, he should be walking off the field. If he stays where he is, he is in play and open to being shot. Especially if he's trying to cheat by playing meat shield for his buddies.

I'm not a fan of bonus balling, overshooting, etc. This is one of those instances though where it appears to be warranted.

Agree 100%, I hate being in situations where you feel bad about shooting someone. If you are out, get off the field. He had options...run or lay down flat...If I was shot out and other players were using me as a shield, I would probably just shoot them!

I dont think you were at the wrong in this situation. He woulidnt move and you were being fired at from his position. You have your right to fire back not have yourself put at the disadvantage because of his stupidity.
IMO, its a general rule in paintball that when u call out, you stay out of the way, otherwise you're just asking to get shot.

My friend took up a position just to the side of me and we opened fire at about the same time just as we started to get some clear shots at them. We took out the first player and he stands up...as he is standing there with his hands in the air and his gun pointed up he friends start using him for cover. One guy was shooting through his legs and another was shooting from behind him. I did not fire back for fear of hitting him again and thinking that he would move. This continued to go on with these players shooting at us while we held our fire, until my friend who was with me started to yell for him to move but the player did not move an inch. My friend started to shoot again and hit the guy who was standing up, and he finally decided to move out of the way. His friends who were using him for the cover took back off down the hill, the player who was standing up moved down the hill to where I was swearing and yelling. I kept telling him that I was not firing and that his friends were using him for cover, but it didn't really matter at that point..He was already super pissed I think. This was a group of older guys/kids with all their own gear and equipment...so it wasn't like it was their first time playing. I wasn't really sure what I should of done...do I wait for them to hit me? Do I keep shooting? Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated!!!
Thanks

I missed this on the first read, but thumper is right. I say so as a player who has admittedly let his temper get the better of hm before when hot-shot/bonus-balled--it doesn't help one's dignity.
