View Full Version : Funny things you have heard on the field

01-14-2006, 07:23 PM
We had thread like this on the original KUSA. We should start it up again. It was fun to read through and after playing it was fun to post all those interesting comments you hear at the field.

If someone remembers the rules please post them.

I'll post a few after we get the rules set up.

This one kid told me his and his friends guns were better than mine because they were Autocockers (they were Trilogy's from Sports Authority). I was holding this:


I said, "Whatever you say, you're the expert."

bamf, usually when you start a thread like this you have to give a story to get the ball rolling. Whats the deal?

As for rules I think basically it was:

Keep it clean
Don't flame other's stories
Stories have to be paintball related.

OK now we have the rules, so I post... :) Thanks Shunut

We played woodsball a few weeks ago and a guy told my friend, who was using a stock tl-x that he needed a Halo B because nothing else would keep up with his gun.

Same guy said people only buy Spyders because they are "Flashy"

I have to think back, but I have more.

my friend once said "dont shoot, im reloading" as a bunker trap. the ref then aggreed and said "ya, dont shoot" i could have sworn someone actually stopped for a second.

Were you really on the old KUSA, I don't remember you?

One of the noob kids at our local field asked me if I my pump (my friends wgp sniper :up:) had 3 round burst ... i lolled, he wasnt joking, so I told him it has the new ramping board :dodgy:. He believed it...

When asked where his barrel plug is..."Oh, don't have one, I just keep it on safety"

"Where are the holes in the bunkers? I can't shoot at people without them!" (He really said this!)

"Your gun's cool. All it needs is some eyes" (About my DM5) Lol!

Similar story but the kids were toting Tippy 98's and I was holding my X-mag. :confused:

A while ago I was playing and the ref was splitting us into team. So I'm watching as he is telling everyone what side to go on and I see this kid who was all decked out start towards my side. I'm thinking okay, he must play often if he has the uniform on and a pack with like 7 pods full of paint. When he got closer I notice that he's shooting a shocker, so I'm excited because for once I think I might have someone on my team to back me up. So off the break he kind of follows me, I make it to a bunker and hes in one just to the right and behind me. All the sudden I hear him screaming. I was like wow, he's gotta be hurt, so I leave my post to go make sure everything is alright. I got back to him and say "You alright man, whats wrong?" He says "I got hit in the stomach and it didn't break, it hurts really bad." I said "Bud you're playing the wrong sport" and went back out on my own.

Moral of the story, Don't Judge A Book By It's Cover

Yep even used the same name. Here is my sig from the old board to help jar your memory


I was playing walk on and a kid was walking around picking up paint off the floor. I mentioned to him that is was not a great idea that the paint could be dirty or very old. He ignored me and half way through the round one of the enormous balls broke in his hopper. He told the refs the field should pick up all of the old paint so people don't go and pick it up. I didn't see him for the rest of the day, I think he went home.

At our tournament today, a kid came up to the fill station dude and asked, "If I bought my gun at your store, do I still need to chrono it?"

01-15-2006, 07:54 PM
"Yeah. My Xtra is fully tricked out. The regulator is under the bolt, and it runs out the back of the gun to the tank. It's so sweet man. I'm running at 20PSI and no kick at all. I won 3 tournaments last month."

classic ion-shocker.

im standing there cleaning my friends shocker and this kid with an ion comes up next to me and hes like
i was like "yup, ion(pointing at his gun)"
then he goes "o same thing"
and i was like hahahaha "sure bud"
then he walked away and i told my friends and they had a good laugh.

I was chilling with my friends at the field, and someone had brought one of his buds along. I was like "Oh, OK, you can use my spare gun and goggles if you want to play" while pointing at my gear bag. He walked over to my bag, and I turned around and resumed talking to my friends. The guy walked up to me about 2 minutes later saying "Dude....your gun's broke." So I'm like "WTF?!" because I just had it working three minutes before he touched it, and had degassed it becuse I didn't need it. I walk over there, he picks up the gun and tank, and inserts the valve of the CO2 tank into the feedneck saying "See?" I rolled my eyes and showed him how to do it properly....of course after slapping the idiot upside the head for wasting my time.

*As I'm filling my 15 round horizontal feed on my phantom* A kid comes up and is watching me do this then ask's "where's the hopper go?"!

Another day a kid see's me chronoing in my Phantom
Kid- Is that a pump?
Me- yep
Kid- Your either gonna get killed or your pretty good!
Me- yep *walk's away*

Kid came up to ask's to see my phantom so I said sure then he proceed's to look inside the horizontal feed and states "how do you use this scope?"

Yesterday while I standing in our pit watching the gear, because the rest of the team was at the game. The were a few guns on stands so a very young kid behind me came over and said "Thats a good way to get your gun stolen". I was like "...yea :dodgy: "

Kid#1 *points to a chitsy little rope tied to his gun*

Kid#2 "Man, I love customizing stuff!"

At my local field the refs devide the games between beginner and novice play. Usually I play novice, but I was using some prety ****ty paint and i couldnt hit anything all day, so i decided to play beginner. i was waiting in line and this TINY kid goes, "You're not a beginner!" i asked him why he thought i wasnt and he said "You have a fancy shirt(jersey) and canisters(pods)!"

01-16-2006, 08:25 PM
I just think its funny that out of the 4 years ive been playing with an Epic, only 2 people have known what it was. I've had it called pretty much everything, tippmann(i laughed so hard when he told me this), angel, cocker, shocker, ion, mag.

We have a "no blind shooting" rule, and this kid was obviously blindly, crazily shooting at nothing from behind a bunker, so I called him on it. (I ref sometimes for my friend's field)
And he says "No, I was shooting at that tree!" So I asked which one...and he says: "That one" and points a tree about 100yds away.....:dodgy:
