TL Plus is ready for game day. All it cost me was buying a $7.50 ASA for my little brothers Victor. Tear down, lube, o rings replaced and rebuild took twenty minutes. All this was done at Splatter Paintball Supply in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. Great people there.

So I took the Plus out back with my Smart Parts 14 inch and fed some paintballs through it. Shot some warning shots at the kids playing football out in the back acre. As they ran behind a small trailer about fifty yards away and ten feet lower in elevation, one kids feet poked out from under, maybe a five-six inch opening to shoot at (again this is 50 yards away). I rattle off to rounds, thinking i wold miss him by a few feet, and nail his toes and his ankle with both shots. I am very satisfied now and cant wait to put some pods through the hopper at the Big Game!!!

Splatter does have great people. I've played with the owner a few times and he's pretty cool! It's not in the most convenient location, though, so I don't go there much myself.

One thing you're going to find out about us here, though. We don't care for this kind of tomfoolery. These kids, I assume, had no paintball masks on, and were not prepared for this. Correct? If that was the case, then this is the kind of crap that gives our sport a bad name. What if you had hit one of those "kids" in an eye? Then we'd have to endure ANOTHER negative news article about how paintball is dangerous. As I said in a previous post, paintball has a bad rep in Oklahoma as it's been going downhill for several years now. Please don't contribute to that by shooting recklessly towards people not expecting it and not prepared.

na it was not in bad taste at all. they all play paintball with my little bro and i. i meant no harm and no harm was done. i know what things can happen if people are irresponsible. honestly the shots i fired were at one of those tall bird houses that sit 15 feet above ground. the one that hit the kids feet were the only paintballs that contacted anybody. i only fired at him knowing i would only hit his feet. i dont want to be looked at as a bad name in this sport. i would never want to hurt anybody. please accept my apology for making it seem as if im an ass, because im not. im a 24 year old (25 on tuesday) father of two and married and dont consider myself a selfish punk like some people can be. now, cant we all just get along? please.

Sure - no problem! Just figured that I'd say something to you before the rest of these yahoos here get to you. Fortunately for you and me, no one reads these Oklahoma forums, haha!

I understand completely, and I'm not THAT big of a hardass! 24 is about the average age in this forum, and I guess I'm running towards the older end (MUCH older than that, sadly). I, too, have two kids and am married, so you're in good company!

Hahaha! It's ok - I call you guys Yahoos to your face so it's not like I'm hiding anything.

But, seriously? EVERY thread? I'm a mod and I don't even do that!
