Wow! Bad mouthing a cop and shooting someone's car? What happened to common sense? Seriously. I hate it when people misuse Paintball Markers. It makes the players and the sport look horrible. A lot of sites promote education and safety in order to prevent this misconception like http://www.airsplat.com/airsoft-safety.htm.
