StreetWars Answered

Trigger happy gamers have organized, broken through the digital/analog divide, and have begun to play "real" games!

Contestants in the StreetWars tournament dart through New York's alleyways with water guns in their hands. They're on a three week long, 24/7 assassination mission where the winner gets $500, the title of top squirter in town, and if all goes to plan, stays dry.

Harry Callahan: I know what you're thinking. "Did he fire six shots or only five?" Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you've got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, punk?

that was on CSI or something, where one person got mad because the person tricked him with a fake acting audition and he shot them with a real gun.

Actually, I think he shot him with a cap gun but the guy died from the fumes.

it was probably blanks. They still release the mas amounts of gas when discharged. If you put the end of the gun against your head the hot expanding gases from the discharge can seriously hurt you.

Apparently the people who play this are not real New Yorkers, we are paranoid enough without being stalked. I would not be surprised to find real casualties.
