    So if 15 people are there, 14 people are shooting paintball guns, and one person is holding a handgun but hasn't shot it yet, that gun doesn't exist?

    Not hearing a gun doesn't mean a gun isn't present.

    Glad you aren't responsible for defending my wife and kids. I'm not sure how close to the police you live, but for me I'm looking at a 10-15 minute response time minimum. That's plenty of time for something bad to happen that could be preventable with the proper application of a firearm.

    I'll keep my guns, thanks.

    This is exactly what I thought, while I never heard an Actual gun beeing fired. A Paintball gun usually makes little noise compared to the mild "Plop" when the Paintballs hit something. And I would never actually associate any of these sounds with Gunfire.

    Something that goes up and then down, is much less dangerous than shooting straight ahead.
    May the lore be great and the stories interesting. A game without a story, is a game without a soul. Value the lore and it will reward you with fun!

    Don't let yourself be satisfied with what you expect and what you seem as obvious. Ask for something good, surprising and better. Your own standards ends up being other peoples standard.

    Can someone decode this for me?

    Its sad that you would assume that kids running around shooting Paintball guns, also have a real guns, and would shoot you with them.

    Real guns sound nothing like paintball guns, on account of vastly different muzzle velocities.

    I don't think shooting and killing someone because they might have a firearm on them, and not using it, would hold up in court.

    What paintball guns do you own? Nothing I've heard from 5+ years of arena visits has ever sounded loud whatsoever. The impact is always louder but if you ever shot in the open distance, not much. If there is a paintball rifle designed to be deafening loud, I question the purpose of that.
    1. Not all guns are deafening loud.
    2. Arena guns are finely tuned for rapid fire and accuracy, which causes them to be more quiet than normal paintballs guns.
    3. Woodball or open field guns blow their loads faster to push the balls further. Reduced accuracy and much louder noise.

    My experience with all of this? 5 years in the Marines, 30+ years hunting ducks/deer and 25+ years playing paintball.

    A simple youtube search will show just how loud (or quiet) paintball guns and real guns can be.

    So, you are saying, after your Experience that you cannot hear a clear Difference between a Paintball gun, and a real gun?

    The entire idea, that you are meet with a "kill or be killed" situation often enough, that you have to think about if shooting to scare will increase your chance of winning a gun-fight, is just insane. If you live in a place, where that is mind state is needed, you should proberly move.
    First off shooting into the air is extremely illegal. What goes up must come down and innocent people have died because of it. Police don't even shoot into the air. But I don't expect any of the experts on here to do any research before stating their flimsy opinions.

    If I'm not 100% sure someone is doing something to harm myself or family why would I even pull a weapon out? To elevate the situation?

    And how do you know if people shooting at your house aren't trying to harm people in the house... other than being sane and assuming they are not inviting you over to a pool party. Do you step outside and yell timeout, hope the person stops firing the weapon so you can confront them and ask what their intensions are. There must be a high lead content in the drinking water where are from.

    That is 100% what I am saying. I have heard many different guns and paintball guns firing in different environments through my lifetime and they all make different sounds.

    There is not "a gun sound". There is not "a paintball sound". You watch too many action movies where they use the same stock "gun sound" for every gun they shoot and think "Hey, that must be what guns sound like".

    And lets completely ignore the fact that people have different levels of hearing effectiveness. The ear drum in my right ear is complete trash due to shooting AT4s in Iraq. Everyone is different with different life experiences.

    Moral of the story, don't shoot at people houses and expect no repercussions.

    Well he is dumb then because muzzles have no velocities when shooting a gun unless the muzzle somehow shoots off.

    And real guns sound nothing like other real guns.

    playing paintball in a regular street is pretty dumb.

    but if they werent trespassing and no stray paint blobs hit the dudes house, i can see this turning out bad for him.

    also who in their right mind goes outside to talk to the shooter to ask whats up when they believe their house is being shot at. wtf?

    still comes down fast enough to kill some random person a couple blocks away.
