My mom always told me that guns and shooting are dangerous all my life. I never shot a gun in my life until the twentieth of May in the year of 2017 at Golden Eagle Battlefield. It was not a real gun that could kill someone, but it was an airsoft gun. Airsoft guns are duplicates of actual guns, but instead of shooting bullets they fired tiny round pellets which are painful when you’re hit by one. These guns are used in competitive team games where shooting each other to win is the objective, and that is exactly what I participated in that day. Everyone only lives once so I might as well take risks in the one life I live, and this was one of those risks.

Eventually, the day came, and I started to feel nervous and scared because I was thinking of what my other friends were saying.

The ride to Sugarloaf Mall where Golden Eagle Battlefield is located was nice and relaxing until my dad missed the exit he was supposed to enter. Luckily, we had a GPS that rerouted us. I made it there early, surprisingly. Once I got there, I had to fill out a couple of forms. We had to wait on many other kids to come which took about twenty minutes.
