Bolt shot



This was a first for me..

Yesterday in some pump on pump action:

"This last game turned into a rather memorable one as Eddie single handedly held off my entire team at the bridge head as I went and wrestled w/ Ricky and David in the back - taking out 2 of the 3 cones on my trip up the river.
The third cone proved to be a bit much for me as Ricky put David to work as "designated bait", and as I fell for the trap - hook line and sinker. Here is the clincher : Ricky shoots me in the barrel.... actually down the barrel. The ball breaks ON my bolt face.. and that is a first for me. amazing"

You know... Besides being a really lucky shot, I'm not sure if that counts as "out".

It's been treated as out before in the past, but consider this...

You can shoot yourself to eliminated yourself.

You can break a ball in your barrel but not be eliminated.

Based on those two items, which are pretty much postulate for paintball play, the inside of your barrel isn't a target area.

Lucky shot? Maybe .. I was not even aiming at him when I was hit - I didn't even know where he was until I heard the shot and the hit - and by then it was much too late.

Nah, he's out.

I've had balls hit mid-air when shooting it out with somebody before. That's pretty cool.

That is simply awesome. Closest I have come to that was getting shot in the breach of my SL as I cocked it back.

Thats cool. I've been shot down the barrel once before. At first I thought maybe I had broken paint, then I saw it was a different colour and it was only down one side of the inside of the barrel.

I took the barrel off and it was just the last few inches with a little spray going further.
