FL gun range allows customers to shoot each other

Not satire

It's a place where people can take their gun and shoot at people -- and they shoot back. There are, however, important rules of engagement that the owner says makes his gun range perfectly safe.

The place is called Combat City.

Before you step foot inside the range, customers meet with owner Dave Kaplan.

“First thing, when you get here, everybody's checked. No guns, knives, ammunition on them,” said Kaplan.

He then modifies the customer's weapon, replacing the barrel so a live round will not fire but will still function as a regular weapon, shooting a soft rubber bullet instead.

“A revolver would work the same, semi auto, the action actually cycles. There's full recoil with the weapon. The assault weapon fully cycles,” Kaplan said.

Participants then suit up, protecting their head, neck and private parts.

But make no mistake, anyone who gets shot, feels the pain, which was described as more severe than being shot with a paintball.

1. Seems simpler and more effective to just pull out some finger nails if you need that sort

 

of realistic pain. Driving a nail through your hand also comes to mind. Another wft moment in the good ol' USA.

4. What's the worst that could happen?

If these were guns specifically designed to only shoot soft projectiles, that's one thing, but checking and modifying everyone's personal gun? It takes just one careless mistake.

7. There's a game called "Capture the Flag" that involves people shooting each other with paintball gun

 

It's been around for decades.

But make no mistake, anyone who gets shot, feels the pain, which was described as more severe than being shot with a paintball.

People have been shooting at each other in Airsoft gun games for many years. A hit with an Airsoft pellet can hurt quite a bit as well.

This is a non-story.
