I threw a pod to my friend, and lets just say it didn't go as far as I planned, needless to say, I had to take apart his Mini, and his Spyder fasta. It took me 2 hours to clean gear that wasn't mine.

Then an old grizzled veteran we nicknamed 'Sarge' came over. He looked at it, shot it once. Pulled the bolt out, rotated it 180 degrees, and put it back in. The gun worked just fine after that. That was the day we learned about bolts in paintball guns.
I put my auto cocker bolt in upside down once after the first time I cleaned it, took everyone at my field 3 hours of tooling around before we figured it out lmfao

We play on a scenario field. I'm with my team at the start point. I tell a few of them that I had no clue what to do. Friendly bunch of guys. They say run to that wall and shoot at anyone coming toward you. Sounds simple of enough. I follow directions to the letter. Guy comes toward me I step out and start pulling the trigger as fast as I can. Guy pauses for a second then keeps coming. What the hell where are my "bullets" going! Guy stops about 15 feet away raise his gun and shoots me 1 time and runs past.
As I walk off the field a referee is waving me over laughing. He tells me "um man, you have to take the barrel cover off for the gun to work!"
When I rented the gun the guy had told me the safety rules. Keep you barrel cover on at all times and mask on at all times while on the field. I guess he assumed that a 38 year old man would know to take the cover off during the game!
Bad news is I embarrassed the hell out of myself!
Good news is everyone knows I'm the new guy so they are all helping me learn the ropes!
