Lazer Tag for Sr. High guys

Whew! It’s 8:45 PM and I’m getting up at 4:00 AM to fly back to Texas in the morning. I’m gonna head to bed in a minute but wanted to leave a quick update here first.

This Christmas I got my little brother a set of lazer tag guns and we’ve been playing almost constantly since he opened them. They’re so much fun! My Sr. High guys talk a lot about paintball, which is unfortunately kinda expensive, especially since I don’t have any of the equipment. These lazer tag guns, though, seem like the perfect alternative. It’s a one-time expense (cheapest at Toys R Us), there’s no mess involved, and we can play as long as we want within the confines of the church building. At first I was kinda skeptical of the product’s quality, but their performance is half-decent. I don’t think I’m gonna be able to swing the youth budget for any of these, but maybe I can convince my guys to fork over the cash for a couple sets for a night of hide and seek, hunt the prey, own the zone, and other fun lazer tag games.

  • Great idea! We have a bad history of injuries when we play games in the dark at our church (game typically ends with someone tripping over something or running to each other) but this would seem like a relatively safe alternative. I gotta think there would be the mandatory upset parent or elder who views it as “violent behavior” though. Ugh.

    I double-checked with my pastor today and a parent who happened to be standing there and neither of them thought it would be a problem at all. They said to go have fun with it. :cool:
