Beebee gun fight

Fighting with beebee guns and boddy armor

My idea is to have a suit that fully protects the user from beebees and sensors through out the suite that detects impact from beebees and each beebee would have a special microchip in it so then you can tell who's beebee hit who. This would be better than paintball because it would be more realistic to gun fighting. I believe the problems with paintball are range, accuracy, and realism. First of all in real life a bullet can travel near a mile in distance but a paintball only travels around a few hundred yards if you have a good gun, and then the accuracy on most guns is terrible. I would love to see a suite that could be worn and be relativly light and safe enough to play a game with beebee guns, possibly fully automatic beebee guns. I would have loads of fun with this. Another problem with paintball is the cost of paintballs, propellant "Co2, nitrogen". I believe after the initial cost of the suite this sport would be cheaper to play with pump guns but once you go to fully automatic guns with gas propelant it may cost more.

       Body armor...pffft. We had BB gun fights without any body armor when I was a kid. Our built in sensor network told us when we were hit. The red mark made by a hit prevented lying about it. It was all good fun with the "Red Ryder" guns. After the first war involving my new Crossman BB gun, the fights were deemed to no longer be good harmless fun.   

       We had to resort to dirt clod and olive fights after that. Boy, the things the city kids missed out on.

       dirt clods and olive fights? sounds like you grew up in my neighborhood....and a ripe olive leaves a juicy purple evidence of a hit.....great for tracking in to the house and on to the carpet, also....

       BB gun armor= Tee Shirt!

       These "beebee" guns...are they similar to waspwasp guns?
silverstormer, Nov 09 2003
  

       Yeah, [norm], Mom was never pleased with the ripe olive residue though I think she would have been more tolerant had she known of the BB gun alternative. :-)

       Orange fights here. Much to our credit, we'd have most of these orange fights while carrying .22 rifles, pistols and the occasional shotgun (hunting rabbits). Never was a gun raised in anger, mock or otherwise. At least while I was *lookin'* at Scott and Jack. hmmmmmmm

       Congrats. you've invented Airsoft. Baked. (Except airsoft hurts like a bastard.)

       I think i'll stick to the old apple grenades (firecrackers pushed into apples). Besides, I think it's more fun taking out a whole croud of friends in one go.

       boddy armor? isn't boddy the guy who get's killed on Clue?   

       Wouldn't it get real hot in your "boddy" armor?   

       Still neutral.

       Oranges? Apples? Olives? Lucky sods. All we has were coconuts. Jimmy is still on a liquid diet 20 years later. Michael has learned to write with his left foot. Myself? I hold out hope that testicular transplants are around the corner.

       still "boddy" armor....
DesertFox, Jun 28 2004
  

       Just use airsoft guns and ditch the body armor. (link)

       isnt a plastic airsoft BB much less dangerous comapred to a metal bb

       They can still blind and/or deafen you, but they lack the satisfying thwack of a paintball.   

       And I think you have to do a little better than, "fight with BB guns." Really, a three-year-old could come up with that.

       We used to load them with Strike'A' matches, which made direct fire a bit boring.

       Maybe the CO2 emissions could be compensated for by a machine that cools air down until the CO2 liquefies, bottles it and sells it to whoever needs it? That way, you'd only have the emissions from the machine.

       Minus the hi-tech sensor suits, this is already baked. It's called "airsoft," a paintball-like pseudo-sport employing realistic-looking guns, using a variety of different propelling methods, that fire 6mm spherical pellets made of a fairly hard but light plastic. The muzzle velocity and short-range ballistics are more realistic than those of paintball guns, and as long as you wear eye protection, it's perfectly safe, no armored suit required. I've been hit in the cheek at close range; it stung like hell, but did not leave a lasting mark or bruise.

       Of course, only now do I realize that other annotators beat me to the punch. That's what I get for skimming annos instead of paying attention.

       It's winter here, and I'd love to get in an airsoft fight. Warms you up, gets the blood flowing.
