    I took one in the left shoulder during the first 2 hours of the game at Alpha. At first I thought it was an 8mm bb, but when the pain hadn't subsided after I got home (around 11:30) and I could see broken skin, I couldn't help but think that someone was using metal bbs. I didn't want to believe it, but after everything that's been said, it looks that way.

    I am 100% positive I was engaged in some fighting against Tan with this guy. We had a make shift fire-team attacking Rex from the Alpha wood-line. He did have a MP5K-PDW as a secondary. There was another guy with us. He was darker skinned with a backwards NY Yankees ball cap. He had some facial hair an M4 with an ACOG and suppressor. I don't know if they ran together or what.

    Not to be a dick, but everyone that says that they must have been metal BBs because they hurt more than usual or "sounded" harder than usual are wrong. Your skin and ears are not proof or even indication of the material the BB was made of or the speed at which it is traveling. Your skin is pretty soft compared to even plastic, so expect a bloody welt from any type of BB. A piece of metal roofing will even make a rain drop sound like a metal BB :/ My brother got his tooth shot out at VP, and the first reaction from everyone was "Was it a metal BB?" or "How close was he?". It was from a plastic BB at well beyond the MED, so don't be surprised when you get a bloody welt from a plastic BB from 20+ft. Please, I don't want anyone being wrongfully accused or rumors going around that the only way you can get a bad welt is from a metal BB, and the only thing that can make a loud sound is a metal BB.

    Onto the real issue, was it a 6mm metal coated BB, a 6mm graphite BB, or a .177 copper BB?

    Beret/goatee with mp5k was on tan side during push on alpha. The only time I ever saw him he was playing on tan (and I saw him towards endgame too). All the footage I have of the game and the photographs I have only show him holding that mp5. So if you saw him with a rifle that was the only time all game he woulda held one. And like I said he was on tan everytime i saw him.

    My best recommendation for finding the kid is going through all the photos people post first. Take crossman's catalogue and hold it side by side with all the photos.

    I definitely understand and agree with Umbra about the welts, but no disrepesct or offense intended I know what I heard. The last time I heard a noise even comparable to it was when I shoot my Gamo breech loader .177 against the Gamo metal target box I have. These couple shots made the piece of tin absolutely "Sing" like a gong. What really distinguished these impacts from the others was the amount of time the tin reverbarated. Much longer than any of the other impacts. This would denote a much higher transfer of force than you would typically expect from a non metal projectile. And yeah as someone who has spent alot of time around outbuildings with tin roofs I was quite aware of their sound amplification. I've been around long enough to have heard every weight of BB traveling at all sorts of velocities striking all manner of materials. We have a good bit of cover at Valhalla field that is metal so I know when a high powered rifle is hitting metal with heavy plastic BBs traveling at high velocity. And when I said he must have been with the "blob" I didnt mean he was associated with any of the honorable upstanding members of the greenside from this weekend.

    To my understanding, metal bbs were found.

    When you say "metal bbs were found", are you saying 6mm metal coated BB, a 6mm graphite BB, or a .177 copper BB?

    Umbra....I've seen that question asked 3 times now and no one answers it.

    I dont know of any .177 rifles that look like airsoft guns.....I would think it would stand out a bit.

    Walther (Umaerx) makes their hand guns and I know a shotgun in both 177 cal and 6mm. The shotgun they make is such that you cant tell them apart. I don't think they have and AEG styles in 177,,,yet
