The DMW is a low tactic and IMO shows you cant eliminate me any other way. At my field its technicly legal as long as there hands stay down and they dont have a BBD.
When I ref if they throw there hands up I call them out. So if someone tries the DMW like that I its not allowed.

When it's okay: Major scenarios that have a "total war" mentality. Some scenarios are more "friendly" or set in stone than others. An example of a total war scenario are BlackCat's games: if you come up with a great idea for how to do something that wasn't originally in the script or a possibility they didn't consider, there's a VERY good chance they'll write up rules to make it playable on the spot. It's a situation where player innovation and non-standard tactics are encouraged. There is no honor lost because it's part of the game. You are expected to do anything you can within the rules to win.
When it's not okay: Just about anywhere else. Rec games, or scenarios with a more friendly and fixed atmosphere. It's not a good thing to do, to prey on peoples' trust in a game that so firmly depends on it.
lets put it this way, youll probley get the first DMW on me, but after that if i see you in the woods with no bag on your barrel im asumming your doing it again and your gonna get LIT UP!!

personally I think it should be banned because it takes advantage of a players, 1)inexperience, 2)observance of general safety rules, and 3)fairplay.
it also can grey the lines of who is dead and who isn't which can and does result in overshooting, or shooting someone who is actually is dead and isnt paying attention. Results in hotheads.
had an experince in the last Fledgling game at agate I went to where I guy that wasn't shot but the rest of his team was, walked by with the rest of his team, marker in the air, and then returned on our six firing. when we confronted him, his reasoning was he hadn't put his barrel bag on even though his gun was in the air. Ridiculous & talentless. Play straight up, or dont play!!!
