Angry CO2 hurts

Well there i was just sittin on my floor. i was putting my TL+ together due to the fact that some punks were walkin around my apartment complex lookin for trouble. i thought, since i dont have a REAL gun, id light them up with paint if the got near my cars (there is a history of slashed tires around here). i knew my tank had a dent in the threads but did not worry about it. i screwed it in and the darn o ring ripped. CO2 came spewing out of the bottom vent hole of my ASA and right at my face. i reacted by placing my hand over the hole to block my face while i unscrewed my tank. well now i have a dime sized bruise/ burn on my left hand. and it hurts!!!!! Lesson learned, i bought a new 24oz tank from walmart. now to fill it up!!!

I remember something like that happened to me at Skirmish. It was a few years back. While defending the castle, I decided it'd be smart to go up to the main tower and shoot from there. . . well, turns out I lost my footing at the last step due to all the paint that was on the floor, and well, my Shutter slammed into the floor and slid in front of me. My SS line broke open at the fittings and CO2 came shooting out straight at me. A ref saw it and tried to unscrew the tank. . . no dice. It was pretty stuck. So, I half froze my face, the ref almost froze his hands off, and everyone playing the Castle was wondering why there was a huge cloud coming out of the tower. From what I heard afterwards, not a single shot rung out when the cloud started getting big. xD

I had a CO2 valve stick open when I was upstairs in my room, and grabbed the *** and ran down the stairs and out in the back yard to the patio. By that time, my hand was fused to the tank much like a tongue stuck to a frozen light pole.

Noone mentioned the fact that paintball guns should never be shot in the direction of people not willingly playing paintball or wearing a mask?

Using markers in this sense is how paintball keeps its black eye.
"If society is tranquil, it is not because it is conscious of its strength and its well-being, but because it fears its weakness and its infirmities; a single effort may cost it its life. Everyone feels the evil, but no one has courage or energy enough to seek the cure."
