Wow, am I exhausted. Today I've played my first game of paintball in more than 6 months. It was kinda a spontaneous thing. Yesturday, my friend told me he was going today to a private speedball field where his friends where going to play, and I was invited.

Well, anyways I got to the field, aired up and met some new friends. Two of them had 05 Electras, two had Ions, a few had mech spyders, and the like. I had the usual before game jitters, but was confident. The first game started, and I had felt a hit and had called myself out, but it was only a bounce. I couldn't see it, so I wasn't too mad at myself. The next game I had a chop, so I cleaned my marker out, and put it back together. When I would air up and put the trigger, it would burp and sputter. I couldn't figure out why though. One player had let me use his Imagine 05. I put my Electra Barrel on it, and went to town. I was set for the rest of the day.

For the next few games, I had bunkered, sneaked, and shot most oponents, and was really dominating. I lit up one player's left arm by accident, becuase the paint wouldn't always break, so I shot a few to make sure his was marked. The same player had hit the front right of my hopper, and I had played on. I couldn't see or feel it, so they understood. I felt terrible for playing on though, I don't want to be considered a cheater.

In one of the last games, I was trading paint with a guy who had an Ion (There was no discrimination against Spyders or Ions), and somehow, I had managed to get a shot in his crotch. He dubbed over in pain. I went over to him apologizing and telling him I never ment to hit him there, he told me I had better start to run. Well, I left the field and packed up my gear. The group of people there told me to stay, saying he was fine. I told them if I could shoot that accurately, I would have hit his mask. He eventually said it was alright, and we had a bit of a laugh about it. There wasn't any bad blood, and a good time was had by all. I'm going back next weekend, hopefully, I have just as much fun.

The refs were strict with the mask and barrel plug rule, and there was no cheating except the playing on I had done, which was of course an accident.
They all played honorably.

Oh yeah, I found out what the problem with my Electra. After cleaning it out, I had put the striker buffer in before the striker. Boy, did I feel dumb. :rolleyes: I'll definatly be using it next weekend after fixing it.

Wow...that story brought back memories of years ago. Its weird to think of shooting someone and feeling bad for shooting them more than once. I can't imagine a day of play without lighting someone up, playing on or shooting someone in the genitals. :(
