don't worry Grace you're only as old as you think, feel and act
let the body do its own thing..... :D

oh forgot!...we used jump off the roof onto the front lawn from our
single family home.


OH LOL Deni you just reminded me we used to do the same thing! Only we jumped off my grandmother's front porch (high) into the picky hedges below. What the hell were we thinking? We'd get all scratched up but just keep jumping. Ah to be a kid again. We used to play king of the hill on the huge snow piles too. Then there was sleigh riding down Slaba's hill in our neighborhood. I remember when dusk fell, how the snow seemed to glow blue and it got so much colder. My sister & I would finally go home with numb toes and fingers. Peeling the snow crusted mittens off & throwing them over the radiator to steam. Hot cocoa all around. sigh.

My husband still has his sling shot from days gone by. He worships that thing...but doesn't use it thank God.


They didn't make a sling shot that would last long enough for me. I'd put big rocks in mine and launch them a long ways. It didn't take long to wear one out like that, and I'd have a nice welp on my arm to prove it.

We used to jump off the roof into the pool. :shock: We used to get tans up on the roof too.. until the pervert neighbor started working on his deck, which looked right onto our roof, when we were out there.

No kidding. If they did, I wouldn't have such a hard time getting a shoot together.

You could probably get one heck of a shoot going from the people on here.. just arm all the AR and Grace types and tell them you shot a cat with paintballs. :D

Doesn't sound like fun. I refuse to grow up or grow old.

Yeah, that would do it, but after the game would be another story.

I had an electronic Tippmann before I made the switch over to Spyder...the Tip was in the repair shop every other week for faulty cellonoid..that kinda turned me against them. I loved the way the Tipps shoot,but I was hooked on E-guns and the Tipps were just junk in that department....Besides I already spent that money on a gun for my oldest son :D

Have you tried the A-5? I put the E-grip on it, and I've had no problems, and it flat shoots some paint!
