well they just showed paintball on discovery channels 'monster garage' or whatever. they were shooting at this big toaster thing. they were using some spyder thigns and NOT WEARING ANY MASKS and it was even pointed at people nobody arounf them wore masks.

it makes me sick to see this on tv becuase people see this and think paintball is dangerous and try and ban it.

so i am boycotting discovery chanel and i hope all of you do to becuase stuff like this just makes a bad name for paintball and gets it banned.

...Umm, nice try. We aren't some cult that boycotts things just because of stupid people. Paintball is growing at an incredible rate. Something very terrible would have to happen for it to die...

Elect Kerry. See where that takes us...

Yep Seawolf, it says right there on his website that his third act as president will be to ban paintball. Thats right after he disbands the military and eats all the babies and old people.....

You'll get used to it man....it's not that we don't care....it's that we know it wont influence a ban on the sport....think back when CO2 tank valves were coming off and striking people dead...did they ban paintball? NO.....they just set up safety advisories for it......the most drastic thing you would ever see from this is CAUTION: Dont shoot toasters.....stupid people will always be around to do stupid things.....just remember that they're put on this earth for our entertainment and weren't meant to be taken seriously.....
