I hate it when people use Paintball Markers to do horrible acts. It just makes the sport look bad and the players look like delinquents. A lot of sites like http://www.airsplat.com/airsoft-info.htm give education pages and advise AGAINST ANYTHING LIKE THIS! But people like this make it so difficult to take away any misconception on the sport. Brave of the employee to flag down the police anyway he could not knowing if the rifle was real or not. Super brave.
