The point is I get to shoot at you, you get to shoot at me. No matter how many times we get hit, we can dust ourselves off and do it again and again and again. Then at the end of the day we can all go home...not dead!!
Honestly though, it's more fun shooting at moving targets that can get up and run again. Moving targets become a little short in supply after the first game with real guns and bullets! Those games don't last long and we really hate paying the full field fee for such a short time.
