High-Tech Peashooters with laser beams! Answered

In this peashooter competition in the UK, some entrants have modified their basic tubes with some high-tech parts. This one uses a laser sight and a gyroscope to help aim. All of this is fine with the organizers who have allowed laser sights for a decade.

Even so, the winner this year was someone with a regular peashooter so it still is quite a bit about skill.

I saw the name of this and thought "Oh no!" because I thought "Peashooters" said "Preschoolers".

That is scary, but imagine 20 or so 6th graders + 7 7th graders with spears, that was my reality last week...

It sure would be scary. Why were there so many 6th and 7th graders with spears? D:

A merit badge required them to make them. The good thing was that few of them had the skill/patience to actually sharpen them and none of them practiced in the campsite.

The sad thing is, I've instantly given you the advantage with those two sentences.

Because I said something that you could have easily put down if you understood it, but you didn't, so I win!
