    Isn't life funny? The FedEx guy that delivered my CPU noticed all of the Sci-Fi stuff in my house and thought I may be interested in his little laser tag group. Apparently this guy and his buddies make all of their own guns and armor, then go up to a college in Georgia about once a month and they get free rein of the campus from dark to midnight. His brother lives right over in my apt. complex and goes to Riddle too. It sounds really cool, and if anyone else is interested I think it would make for a great Beachtrooper event! I'm thinking if these guys do their own guns/gear, why can't we do the same but with a Trooper twist? Maybe some of that Jedi Special Forces that I talked about a while back ;)

    For more info PM me for the guy's e-mail address.

    believe it of not i've actually looked into this before, even going so far as to contact laser tag equipment suppliers for prices. What I've found out is, you can't really buy just the "vest" and guns you see at commercial lasertag places so that's out. What the modifiers do is take the toy guns from Kaybee and such and rework the lens systems to increase range and acuracy. Some groups even play in costume so it is a possibility.

    Well I know the guy I talked to make a gun as long as my dining room table out of a modified super soaker. Sounds like a fun summer project.
