    Default Olympics goes Wussy...

    What a shame, caving into the PC crowd.

    Complete with simulated co2 cartridge, but no ballistics. Anybody who has ever shot will tell you temperature, wind, and humidity and recoil have a BIG impact on shooting skills.
    Would have been better to go to airsoft etc.

    Whats next, Dance, Dance Revolution? Pie Eating?

    I'm rapidly loosing respect for the Olympics in general. The change in Scoring systems in Skating and Gymnastics a few years ago, are a prime example.
