So yesterday I was playing on a field called Pipes made of giant...pipes.. for my first game of the day. There's a makeshift snake and I was in it, and towards the end of the game I was bumping up and I look in and I see a jacket, but I just couldn't see any more than a small snippet of their back. So I put two in his back, and go to bump up again when I hear a scream.. So I look back and it's a 10 year old on the ground.. Fuuuuuuuck. I call myself out and the game is ended and so I go and check on the kid make sure he's alright and whatnot. Turns out it was his first time.. So I'm like great, I've successfully terrified this kid on his first day trying the sport out with his Dad. BUT, thankfully the father was a good sport about it and didn't go psycho Dad mode. In the pits I brought the kid some ice and made conversation and he said "next time I'm wearing padding." I was so damn relieved knowing that he wasn't turned away from paintball.
What's your guys's opinions on the much younger players? I always try to bunker tag or get them out any other way but shooting them and if I have to I always make an effort to aim wherever they're padded.
Feel free to share stories
Also I just realized I've made some long ass posts.. I just don't like leaving out detail but I apologize if it's an inconvenience.
