I had just recieved my brand new CA870 Charger. Brought it home, something was funny with it. The outer barrel seemed bent downwards too far, I thought it might have just been an optical illusion from the tapered barrel. It wasn't shooting straight at all, so I took the outer barrel off to have a look. The inner barrel was bent where it entered the reciever (I figure shipping damage, box looked like it was stepped on)

Of course, before claiming insurance from purolator, I went ahead and tried to bend it back hoping I wouldnt have to go through the trouble with purolator, snapping it right off.

I didnt have the gun for even 30 minutes before I voided the warrenty, and the insurance.

Oh, when taking the old barrel out, I saw this little piece of plastic fall out. Looked at it, said "Whats this plastic doing covering this little hole? Why would there be a hole that's just covered up?" and threw it out. Turns out I threw out the hopup.

1)sgt Lynch making fun of his team about being a wus for not crossing a stream, only to find himself waist deep in it, laughing my ass off and giving away my perfect ambush point and being hunted down by the whole STAT team .

2)shooting myself in the face from a recoil off a barrier(trying to suprise a squad attacking)

3)jumping off the second floor off paintball city suprising the crap of the opponent ( i will never do that again especially at my old age conditions)

4) playing airsoft HK style with tanktops and shorts

Firing with my M4, wondering why the bb's weren't coming out. Then realizing my barrel plug was still on. Man did I ever feel stupid...

I have a few.

-I opened my gearbox ang the spring guide sprung out and It almost missed the face of my wife for about 2inch.
-Swallowed 2 BB's. It was mixed in my cereal. I wondered how the heck a bb ended in my cereal but soon I realized I was plinking inside the living room and there's a entry hole on the side of the cereal box. Good thing it is "biodegradeble" BB's.
-got pissed on my enemies on the game because they dont call hit. I didnt wind up my Hi-cap.
-But what really is stupid is going to the game and when its about to start and your freaking battery just run out of juice and didnt bring any extra or back up aeg and tell yourself "What a day"

I must say the most embarrassing thing I've ever seen wasn't me, but one of the guys we play with. He managed to shoot himself in the face with his AK, from 100ft.

He fires at a car (rusted out caddy at the end of the range) at 50ft. The bb hits. Bounces directly back at him. 50 more feet. Hits him in face.

Self-pwn.

We were out hunting at the LZ and were rounding a bend in an ATV trail. Someone laying down in the grass let off a bust and to avoide being hit in the head, I dropped to the ground. Well the foregrip of my SR16 landed against my knee and my body fell on the gun. Took the metal butt-plate right in the chin. Felt like I knocked myself out. Ooooo, I was sore.

+40 temp. New Tm Hi-capa 5.1 fired at our target. the force blew the slide back more then its susposta and it sprayed silicon and propane in my face. That sucked.

Oh, and last game last season. The LZ's killhouse is on a lower section of the property that was cut out of the rock when it was owned by the quarry. So what you get is super smooth and flat rock about 50m wide and prolly 800m long. Well, after lots of rain there was that green slime everywhere. Our team had been stuck inside the killhouse for close to an hour with the enemy team surrounding us trying to get our VIP. We finnaly decided to kick down the barricade and rush out the door and into the bush to extract. Well, I was covering the rear so I was out last. I run out the door at full speed, spin to cover the flank...but I dont spin, I loose my footing and slam down, knee first into the rock.
I scrambled and got up and kept running, but got shot in the ass afterwards.
Needless to say, it didnt bother me till a few hours later. Fractured knee cap. boo

Target shooting with a cardboard box in my room while bored.

Wasn't thinking and weighted the box down with arrows.

Noticed arrows were splintered when I was practicing my archery with my gf (and she got a few splinters). Sad :[

Glad to hear I'm not the only one that found out what kind of damage bb's do to drywall...

Also, my room was an absolute mess, you couldn't see the floor. There were all sorts of treats hiding under the mass of clothes and whatnot, incl. some sharp objects. My foot found one of these objects and I fell onto my m16 that was lying on my bed...broke both plastic upper receiver tabs. I have yet to permanently fix them.

Also, a stalk sig 552 is powerful enough to break a lightbulb...
