Halo got stolen

I was at a 3 man tournament today and we were doing ok, not the best but ok. After our fourth game i accidently left my halo and tank on a table next to the air tanks, i was gone for about a minute or two before i realized what i had forgotten, when i got back my halo was gone and my mask was still there. I asked all the refs and just about everyone there if they had seen my halo. No luck. I gave them my phone number and described my hopper and they will call me if it shows up.

Time for the second part of my story.

This caused a huge problem for my team, because we could get another hopper for me to use. My feedneck requires a collar to keep the hopper in (very tightly i might add). So the first game without it we tried to duct tape an egg to my feedneck, it fell off and got shot so i was out (hopper counts as gear even if its off) We lost that game. The next game we played against a very generous team, who offered to play a man down if we did, we agreed and ended up winning that game.

For the last game i was walking out without a hopper or paint (i was intending to charge while my team mates held em down. The refs said that if i wanted i could quickly go get a pod of paint. I ran to the sidelines and was asking my mom to quickly get me a pod, but none were full. A guy from another team runs up and slips me his pod under the netting. That game i took 50 off break, but was taken out about a minute later by a guy in the dorrito that posted on me.

Yes, im very pissed off that someone stole my hopper, but im also glad that there are other players that are very nice, generous, and sportsmanlike.

that is true nick...but i think that we could have beat that 6th team we played EVEN if they had their 3rd man...

yeah...today wasn't the best day...my rat imp's valve o-rings got fubar'd and so i had to use a stock 04 cocker....oh yea....big difference. Nick (roadkill) tried to duct tape that egg but it fell off right off the break on the 5th game (which roadkill and silentkill didn't hear the break call of...and i was the only one who ran!!!!!!)...

do you have the serial number for your halo? it could be tracked down alot faster if you had that, and not only that but if they find one reported stolen you can prove that its actually yours.

yeah.. Halo's don't have any real, visible serial numbers....


That's sad to hear man, i hate those pricks that steal stuff. They should go work for their stuff like everyone else in the world. Even the Pro guys that are sponsored still have to work for all of their gear. nothing in the world is free.

Ballers are generally good people, i run into a bunch of nice guys all the time that will give me a pod or something on the field. Remember.. Pay It Forward..

Your Actions will come back to you. Good OR Bad.

What really sucks is that it takes me a while to get enough money together for parts, so we will probably need to put in our reserve guys that just got all their gear together.

Thats why you never leave anything behind or unattended. Why did you have the halo off in the first place? Also, this is why you always have backup guns insace one goes down.

Sorry to hear it man. Someone stole my empty pod yesterday (no big deal) but I took their pod full of paint. The horrible thing is that not many stolen thingsare found or replaced.
