Default Re: Man...I ever see this on a PB field...

firing a .177 cal BB...steel or copper...is going to have SERIOUS affects on the target.

If it were just a matter of target shooting (like those full auto models at carnivals) and shooting out the "star" on a paper target...then it's a great thing. Taking out annoying pests like squirrels, bats and the occasional stray dog...fine.

The problem is that < 20% of any given society are sociopaths (learned that in college) and in the mind of that sociopath, this is funny. Take my complaints on the Normandy game...and now tripple the threat....

4300 players
10% sociopaths
= 430 sociopaths

4300 players
%20% sociopaths
= 860 sociopaths

It's been confirmed that at least 2 people were arrested for shooting foreign objects/reballs/marbles at Skirmish's '07 Normandy. As far as I'm aware, one lost an eye. MANY were taken off the field, chrono'd at 350+ fps and several were removed for shooting 450+............

Now add THIS thing......
