I only saw this topic as I was about to start a new one for After Action Reports
I guess this one will do
We had about forty shooters for five shooting stages, as well as the force on force and Morne's "shoot the hand cannon if you dare" stage
I worked the force on force with Jake, and had a great time and hopefully gave everyone something to think about on the way home
The scenario was a restaurant or cafe setting, with the participants being seated at their table while I played patty cake and other baby games with a life sized baby doll at another table. Jake would come in and start quarreling with me and about domestic matters (it became apparent we were gay lovers with a child) and the situation escalated from there. Sometimes he would grab my phone and look to see who I had been calling, sometime he would pick up my e cig and accuse my of smoking in front of the baby, sometimes he would just try to take the baby and leave. Sometimes he would smack me right out of the chair onto the floor, baby and all. In almost all of them we would end of wrasling for the baby and then the guns would come out.
People got shot in the front, back, and with their own gun even. The baby died, I died, Jake died. The only people who didn't die was 1) the last man standing, or 2) those who just got up and left as soon as the things got ugly.
My personal notes:
People seemed to think the scenarios were realistic and yet surprised at how quickly things escalated
Jake's best move:
One guy tried to manhandle Jake from the front as he was holding the baby and I had Jake by rear trying to keep him from taking the baby. Jake reached out and took the guys gun from his holster and shot him holding the gun upside down and using his little finger on the trigger
Chuck's best move:
One guy was trying to break us up in a similar situation but this time after thirty or forty seconds of shoving/pulling, I let Jake go out of the way and stood there with my arms at my sides, elbows in and hands out sideways, showing him my empty palms, and he shot me at less than three feet! I asked him "Why did you shoot me?" and he thought for a minute and said "I don't know. I shouldn't have done that."
Contestant's best violent move:
Mustang Gal's husband grabbed Jake's arm and used him for cover while he reached over top of him to shoot me. Range, five to six feet, three in the chest and belly.
Contestant's best defensive move:
First couple of the day, husband and wife, are sitting there and Jake knocks me out of the chair. I draw my gun from the ground and before I finish their table is on its side, they're behind it and both have guns pointing at us. We surrendered or it would have been a blood bath. What a way for us to start the day!
Contestant's best avoidance move:
At the first sign of a loud, domestic situation, someone said "We should go" and they both got up and walked out without a word. This happened two and a half times, with our beloved president walking out all alone, dialing 911 once he hit the exit door. He left his dinner partner there to be slaughtered.
Best advice for the day:
Avoidance, avoidance, avoidance! And keep your head on a swivel
Unanswered question of the day:
EVERY single guy that Jake seated with his back to the room moved his chair to the other side of the table BEFORE LUNCH.
NO ONE moved their chair to the other side of the table AFTER LUNCH, although a couple did move so that they could see the room a little bit better.
Is there some psychological reason for this?
Today my chest and stomach have so many red spots it looks like chicken pox
I'll wear a vest next year
