But their're just soaking in ordinary water, ain't they? Was looking for some way that these could used in a type of mini paintball skirmish game.

Ok the clear gels didn't absorb the dye and didn't burst the balloon at 10mtrs so probably no good for the type of events in stoneys original post ....However gel ball skirmish is apparently a fast growing sport with a BIG following in Qld so all that's needed is to incorporate horses and we might have something :lol: :thumbsup: :drinks:
I watched 12 Strong the other day so maybe. .......... ???????

All good Daddybang. They also make gel blaster pistols. My mate has a few. Just trying to find if they make a SAA copy :D :D :D

I was also thinking having an event like in the original video on private property shouldn't pose any legal/licencing problem should it?

Yep the more we play with the m4 the more the missus (and me ) want a couple of pistol style ones :lol: :drinks:
I can't think of anything to prohibit the original event. .maybe have to get range approval :unknown: and insurance would be a bit of an obstacle as well as crowd proximity and barriers etc but if enough people backed it financially maybe it could be done :unknown:
(Any forum lawyers please feel free to chime in!!!! :lol: :lol: :drinks: :drinks: )
I'd like to train one of my nags for it!! :thumbsup: :drinks:

If DB lived closer, I'd give it a crack. Horse mounted archery tag vs gel blaster would be a hoot.....

Umm, those 10 protestors, did they survive in one piece ? ;) maybe any protests about your gel-ball cowboy event could be tied up at the stake by the guys playing the part of the Indians :lol:

Not to put a downer on this, but I can think of at least one reason to prohibit the original event. All pistol events shot in QLD have to be approved events, approved by WLB, and I can't see them approving this, can you?

After looking on google and YouTube, I absolutely agree. Some fine ladies in that sport. Is it too late to learn how to ride a horse at 50 ? ;)

ya could actually involve other aussie historical horse related events as well . everyone has heard of the light horse ( i had a great uncle in the queensland regiment ), not a lot of people remember we also had lancer light cavalry around the boer war/pre WW1 era . they used to practice "tent pegging" where they would spear wooden pegs out of the ground with a lance. i think cavalry sabres may also have been used. i know there are some light horse re-enactor groups around, i think this would be interesting to include as well. a lot of our cultural history is disappearing as the next generations are more absorbed with their mobile phones with each year . would be nice to blow their minds with "real" thrills . just a thought
