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.

Oh well that's good that hardly any of them sharpened theirs.

yay i got first view!!!!

Ahh, you say that now but wait till you're indead. Then you won't be saying that!

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

indead? i still don't get what you mean...

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