European meeting

Unread postAuthor: Brian the brain » Wed Jul 02, 2008 2:06 pm

Who would be interested in a Euromeet??

I would like to meet you guys personally and have some fun.
I think Holland is a good location.
Central between UK, France, Germany and Scandinavia.

If anyone knows a better location, where we could shoot some stuff without getting in trouble, that would be better, please say so


Anyway, leave a comment if you are truely interested.I'd travel a few hours for it, how about you?

The trouble is the location.If we want this to be legal, we need a privately owned piece of land.
Then still, age might be a problem.I believe you would have to be 18.

Spectators would not have to be...and nothing is illegal untill you get caught.And I can´t afford to get caught doing something illegal..

So..the location is the biggest problem.Anybody know somebody that works at a paintball field, maybe?
Junkyard...maybe an uncle with a farm?

We need to plan this carefully..not just go out there and do a shootout, get our stuff confiscated and ourselves in trouble..

I was pinged about a meet in Cornwall (southwest England) which I believe would be at Cornishtigers (owns UKSGC) farm in a few months.

The meet has been put off for over a year due to insufficient commitments but I feel like going if it's fixed to be on this time.

Being legally safe at these things in Europe would be all based on everyone taking appropriate precautions in bringing and then using any cannons without attracting public or official attention.

Transporting the actual cannons would seem to be the biggest issue. It would be cool to have a "workshop week" where all spudders would have to do was bring their tools and ingenuity, then build their spudguns on site, and the weekend could be dedicated to pulverising stuff. You could also make coop projects, say 4 people working on a big 3" piston pneumatic, as opposed to having 3 separate 1" pneumatics.

Lovely idea on paper, but as to practice, I doubt it can ever happen in a big way on an international as opposed to national level.

That would be cool but like you said getting everyone to the same place plus all the tools and cannon parts would be an issue and you would also need to have it in a large workshop of some sort

I thought that crossing the border is easy becasue most countries are in the UE..?

besides.. you can always disemble a gun... several fittings and a piece of pipe does not look suspiciuous
