I remember rock fights, the goal was to hit each other but not try to get hurt....4 stitches later in my forehead my dad asked me, "So, any more rock fights in the future?"
As I got older and learned to respect any kind of firearm and /or weapon, I found the antics of my youth really stupid. But hey, I was a very stupid kid always up for a challenge and danger, damn the consequences. I would have beat my daughter senseless if I ever caught her doing some of the crap I pulled.Sometimes games like this can come to a tragic end - I knew a kid who played 'wargames' with his friends using .22 rimfires (I dunno whether they messed with the loads or what) .. end result was that one kid got hit in the wrong spot and the 'little' round perforated his heart - game over. It might be construed as extreme but I get really pissed off whenever I see anyone pointing even toy guns or replicas at anyone else in jest ...
