Sweet. Around here theres a place you can get unlimited lasertag on Monday and Tuesday from 6 to 11:00 for $15! Its normally around $7 for 15 minutes (one game). So I get a bunch of buddies together every once in a while and we all go shoot each other up. I mean, fragging your friends in some online FPS is one thing, but watching the horrified look on their face as you run past for the upteenth time, and they cant hit you, and then they're dead... again... is just priceless.

Paintball is good too. When it hurts there's more incentive to not get hit. It weeds out the wusses.

LOL :p

I've heard of people using airpowered BBs. I've actually heard of it several times. Adding new meaning behind an old utterance; "Careful or you'll shoot your eye out." A friend of a friend did almost that as the BB when into his forhead and slid up under the skin against his skull several inches. ... Apparently it hurt... I guess it sucks to be stupid.

I used to play Laser Tag a lot, too - we had the same sort of deal that l@d is seeing.... That all ended when we got in a big fistfight with the people working there and their moron friends (apparently the moron friends thought it wasn't fair that we could still shoot them out when they did neat stuff like taking off their vests, turning them around, or putting their coats over them...)

I hope you're kidding! :eek: That's insane.

Actually, I've neither done paintball or laser. They sound like a blast though.

And Gov' I'm afraid I can't invite you to my first game. :D
