Funniest misfire/equipment malfunction
Posted 03 April 2008 - 10:13 AM
Here's mine (presented in two parts for easier reading and better context):
Part A: One day at my local paintball field, I was at the chrono range and when I was removing/reinserting my barrel plug on my Spyder VS1 the park staff member that was with me suggesting putting some lube on the plug's O-rings because they were squeaking a lot.
Part B: Later that day, my friends and I were about to begin a game. As my team goes over to its starting point, I make the mistake of turning the electronics on my Spyder BEFORE removing the barrel plug (don't freak out, everyone was masked). And so as I'm about to reach for the barrel plug my finger accidentally taps the trigger and a loud THOP noise accompanies pink spoo coming out of the barrel porting. I have to call timeout, like, 12 times because the field we were on was a REALLY long village and the other team started clear at the opposite end, and the ref was still a huge distance away despite being in the middle. There's an upside to this---after I was finishing squeegeeing, the O-rings on the plug were properly lubed and didn't squeak anymore.
Your turn for funny stories!

None of my malfunctions are ever funny
Sorta. The game was seconds away from beginning and I start yelling, "WAIT, WAIT, MISFIRE, I NEED A BUNG."

That happened in the spring of last year as I was still working on my Palmerized carbine stock.

I also saw a team mate through a tippy grenade, only to have it not go off (duh) and get picked up by the enemy, who wasted no time throwing it back and this time it went off, taking out the guy who threw it initially. The moral of this story, don't buy tippy 'nades.

I was using my Phantom setup and I was playing some sniper. An opponent walked right past me, I was in the middle of a bush. He stopped about 20 feet in front of me, but I couldn't get a shot at him. So I got up quietly and crept up behind him. About two feet from him, there was an old window with the glass still in it covered by weeds (it was also wet because it rained the previous day). Right when I asked him to surrender, I slipped on the glass and fell into him. We were such a tangled mess of equipment that he got his gun on me and told me to surrender.
I had no choice at that point.
lol it was a pretty good one
