    I use to play all the time, then I went to Marine Corps boot camp and when I got back no body wanted to play with me any more.

    SEMPER FI Scott!!!!We use a form of it all the time here at MCBC Lejeune during urban combat training.I have found that paintballs and a sling shot is a great form of entertainment and works well on recalcitrant grand children.Having grown up with a slingshot I am a deadly shot and tiny grand children rear ends pose no problems.Strangely enough they get a great kick out of it AFTER they stop crying and proudly report to their mothers they have been "shotted' by grandpa.Their mothers arent fond of it as a means of discipline but after being 'Shotted" themselves are way to smart to say anything.The kids of course have demanded their own slingshots and paintballs which I gleefully provide when they are on their way home.Nailed a big gator the other day in the river behind the house and there is nothing funnier than an orange spotted gator.You have to be careful and not squeeze down to hard when shooting but other than that it is great funand Biodegradable.At least I hope so for the gators sake.:big_smile::lol:

    ive played before, it was intense. a really fun game to play but its too expensive, dangerous too if u dont have the safety gear. airsoft is better, cheaper, and much less dangerous

    I used to play alot. i still have my markers but none of my other gear anymore. I loved playing against military personel. If Im going to lose it's going to be a learning experience and not to a putz. No guts No glory!
