Back in the 90s, when the Dude was in junior high and high school, I used to play in the woods with all my friends. My first paint ball "gun" was a slingshot. Needless to say, I learned that the slingshot guys were just bullseyes, so I had a little 10 shooter pistol and a Stingray (ooooh yeah, plastic semi-auto which cost me 120 bucks in 1993).
Anyhow, my friends got more and more interested in paintball and I got more and more interested in other things (girls, hanging out at Denny's at 2:00 in the morning, etc.) and I came to realize that I was being outspent and sold all my stuff in about 1995. Haven't played for 10 years, and I don't miss the welts.
