    Miggy: pump, aim, pssssssssfft!
    Friend: OUCH!!!! Why did you do that?
    Miggy: You wanted to know.

    You are not alone in the world of youthful stupidity
    Yeah I think I once fit into that youthful stupidity group too...My friends and I had wargames with BB guns instead of paintball markers (didn't even know what they were back then). Although, at least we had rules and we all followed them - No headshots or groin shots. No more than 3 pumps if by rifle, unlimited pumps by pistol. All shots had to be made at greater than 15yrds.

    Yeah we had wars too. Sometimes we mixed in fireworks too. I had an impressive bottlerocket gun, until my dad found it.

    Haha... I would use the greatest weapons of them all.

    I would use.....


    MY CAT!....








    The offender would be so touched by his absolute cuteness that he would be entirely disarmed, and as long as I didn't look into that adorable fuzzy face and fall prey to his charm myself, then I could draw and strike my opponent dead... Then I would cuddle and pet the kitty!

    Reminds me of a famous duel in Slidell, just outside of New Orleans. A very famous, and rather notorious, duelist from NO had a disagreement over money with a blacksmith in Slidell. Reverting to his usual bullying tactics he challenged the smith to a duel to settle matters. Rules of the day said that the one challenged had choice of weapons and location. Normally pistols or swords in a field.

    The Blacksmith was a little over 6' and the notorious duelist was just over 5'. The blacksmith figured he was in big trouble not having the weapons skill of the duelist. He came up with a novel idea. He announced he accepted the challenge and the duel would take place in Lake Ponchartrain, in 6' of water with sledge hammers.

    The New Orleans duelist withdrew his challenge and settled with the blacksmith!

    we did it with bottle rockets...

    but I would probably just remind you that the only reason that God allowed dueling was due to "the hardness of your hearts" (or was that divorce?

    I always prefer to call in tac-air

    nuthin' quite like a good air strike to settle an old feud

    If two individuals agree to it, I don't see how it can be wrong on any level.

    Paintball guns. That way both get stung bad, and whatever has gotten a burr under the saddle is answered.


    On another note, those that are caught for vandalism should be dressed up in their best clothes and shot repeadly with paintball guns, after they get done painting over their tagging.
