We were out at our regular field when a 10 year old boy and his grandfather showed up. The kid had a blade. Grandpa just wanted to take the kid out for a day of fun. Well the little guy was watching everyone else, and noticed really quickly that he was not going to be able to play with his blade. So, my team felt really bad for the guys, and asked them to go and play a few games. I had an old phantom pump stock class that I went out with against little guy and his blade. Well, I got tired of standing 65 feet away and not even being threatened by the litte dude, and I figured I had to shoot him to end this torment. I thought the only good place to hit him was in the gun. It wouldn't hurt the kid, and I would feel a little better about it if I did it nicely. So, I took aim, squeezed the trigger and WHAM!!! Watched as the little dude was showered in paint and blue plastic shards! The damn thing blew up in his hand! I hit the thing right by the 12 gram, and I guess it just put too much stress on it, and it exploded. Everyone who was watching was laughing so hard, they almost pee'd in their pants. I ran to the kid to see if he was ok. He was in shock, and was going to cry. After getting him off the field, the guys on my team all coughed up $20 each, and went to the "shack" and got the kid a spyder compact. He was happy, and the Grandfather was very thankful that we showed concern.
Hell, I would have loved to have it on video tape! It was the funniest God damned thing that has ever happend to me! It was worth the $20 I gave the kid.
I give it a 10 due to it being the funniest event of my paintball life! thanks Brass Seagul for a once in a lifetime event!!!
That must be the funniest thing I've heard all month. I'd hate to be holding that cheap piece of crap when it blew up. Nice to know you guys felt bad about that poor kid's gun exploding, and at least it ended well. Props to you, man. And good aim, too.
The other day I was telling my friends about this at lunch in school and I was cracking up so hard I coulnt even tell the story. Finaly i was able to and we where laughing so hard. We all had red faces. This is the funniest thing ive ever heard.
lol thats pretty good! poor kid i'll bet he felt pretty sh*tty when he gets out there with a little crap gun and everyone out there are using pro guns. that was kewl of you to play him one on one so he could have some fun. it wasn't kewl of you to break his gun but hey what are you gonna do? lol but i liked that ya'll bought him a nice spyder. pretty good story.
