Why this sport gets a bad reputation

Post by cmyonkoski » Tue Nov 01, 2011 8:13 pm

I am a 15 year old who is actually responsible when using airsoft guns. Always use eye protection, play on private property, etc... so when a kid at school said he was going to get wasted and shoot kids with his airsoft gun, I gave him an earful. Then, I came across this video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HRLsV2pX ... re=related

These are the jerks who give this sport and people my age a bad name! We aren't all like this!

Anyone else up for reviving "Douchebag of the Month" threads?

This can be the November Douchebags of the Month, since it is the 1st of November it is perfect timing!

That's phenomenally stupid.

I reported the video for abuse, even though the comments are generally negative, that's just not the kind of shit that needs to be encouraged by anyone.

On behalf of my entire generation, I apologize to the sport of airsoft, and to the world in general. I am especially embarrassed that nobody in my age group knows who Kurt Cobain is!

*Sigh* All of these idiots make me think that in my school district they should replace their Archery unit with gun safety.

... I don't even know what to say. These people are IDIOTS and obviously should not be permitted near anything that fires a projectile. If I were the kid that got shot from the rooftop, I would have started chucking rocks til the shooter fell. Bet he wouldn't think it was very funny then.
