Real gun trumps paintball guns.

There are a couple of things that I did as a kid that I'm sure would have gotten me killed in Texas. Once as teenagers my friends and I were pissed drunk and were locked out of my friend's place. His parents were away and he was locked out so we broke in. We carefully removed a back window (breaking it in the process) and were seen by the neighbours. Luckily they called the cops instead of shooting us.

Another time wasn't so innocent. Neighbours were having a party and my friend and I decided to switch licence plates on the cars parked out front. We had screwdrivers and we removed all of the licence plates and switched them around. Funniest thing in the world for a couple of teenagers but thinking back on it I'm sure that we caused a lot of trouble...probably enough to get us shot in Texas, there's probably even a by-law allowing it !+)

Anyways I think that I turned out ok without being disciplined with a .38 :-B

yeah one time in high school we dumped out a bunch of peoples trash...instead of shooting us the cops told us we could either clean it up or get a $500 ticket for littering. it was only like one houses trash, so it wasnt too bad, but thank god they didnt go down the next street where we emptied out literally every can on the street :-b

The paintball kids are idiots and should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. If the person who shot at them thought that the paintball guns were real guns and he was firing back in self defense, then whatever. If he was pissed that his house got paint on it so he decided to try to kill the kids, then he should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law. Since this is Texas, I'm guessing that you get in worse trouble for getting paint on someone's house than for trying to kill someone who got paint on your house.

For days, I resisted opening a thread started by Madison with the word "gun" listed twice in the subject.

I was weak this morning, and now I'm upset with myself for giving in. :-/

Worst thing I think I ever did was to sit under an overpass and toss rocks at oncoming traffic. I quit after I spider-webbed a guy's truck windshield. Good thing I did that in Illinois. I'd have been shot down dead in Texas.

Worst thing I ever did without any ramifications was when I angled a 3-inch nail into a piece of styrofoam and set it in the middle of the road. I doubt it would have actually blown out a tire, but you never know.

Bah, with the title, you knew what the story was or at least had a pretty good idea what it was. As to the responses and how the thread went, no surprise there either. :-b


And yes, a lot of you guys would have been shot here in Texas, or at least severely beaten for your transgressions. :-b
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

This could have been the lone reply to this thread, and it would've been ready for everyone else to just quote and reply with +1.
