Then if you got ahold of some pea gravel, well that was like a shotgun.

Yeah, and Roman candles, BB guns, slingshots, and one time that escalated unopened cans of pop.

Dirt clods. Sometimes with rocks inside. I was hit in the eye once, and that was when I wized-the-hell-up.

Yup!

I have a scar to prove it.

Millennial here. I had older cousins who had lots of friends. Myself and a younger cousin were constantly in rock fights for our lives. Oh, we also got hunted with BB Guns and used as wrestling props.


We had Cow patty fights a lot too.
Tons of fun

Yes, winging fist sized rocks at each other for real. I still have a scar on my head from one.  My dad couldn’t believe how fucking stupid we were.

We had about ten acres of school yard in my elementary schools.  Nice big areas and too few playground aids.  Rock fights were the norm, especially by the kickball diamond.

Sheeit!!  We found a pile of old asbestos flooring tiles once.  We sailed those things at each other for a good 15 minutes until my friend caught one across the forehead and split his melon open

We threw anything we could find at eachother. Fireworks were a plus but rare.

Yes, broke a kids arm and the ricochet off his arm broke a window.

Rock fights, and also a game where you'd stand at like 20 paces and take turns lobbing rocks at each other's heads. If you moved, you lost.

That how I learned head wounds bleed a lot.

[Last Edit: ManiacRat] [#24]
Slingshots actually. But yeah. A whole lot of motivation to be good and stealthy when the penalty is road gravel hitting you at 200fps.

Reminds me of another thing we did. The place we had our rock wars had a big oak tree. We use to climb a big ass painters ladder and jump off of it via rope swing.

Some kid stole a toy of mine once, leading to a rock fight. I managed to precisely hit my toy and break it.

Yup. I shot my cousin out of a tree with a bottle rocket once. As it turns out a bottle rocket and a 3’ piece of 1/2” copper pipe with one end smashed shut with grandpa’s hammer makes a serviceable bazooka.

Fucker was in tree trying to snipe me with his BB gun during a pretty epic recreation of WW2. Gotcha sucka.

We used to fill the backside of frisbees with sand and gravel and hurl it at each other.

I had an ER visit trying to get shit out of my eyes.

Today I encourage my kids to sword fight with sticks and shit.

Shit we even did it in Iraq. I was on post and whipped one back at one of my buddies, split his eye open.

Sorry Jeremy

rocks, dirt clods, bb guns, lawn darts, bottle rockets, roman candles....

roman candles and bottle rockets/any other relevant firework you could afford at the baseball fields using the dugouts as bunkers was by far the most fun

Throwing rocks at each other, bb gun fights, jumping ramps on our bikes, and drinking out of a garden hose.  Damn those were good days.

You learned to never get in a fight on the playground because that's the first thing that would happen.. and there was no way to not get hit by it. Fucking pea gravel chuckers

BB guns, paint balls, marbles, rocks, dirt clods, bow and arrow (plastic), sword fights with broom sticks, florescent lights and the like.  It was all there

And Roman Candles


I have a gnarly scar on my lip from taking half a brick to the face during a rock fight.
My mother almost passed out when her 7 yr old came home with blood running down his face. Lol.

Yes, but they were sorta kinda supposed to be for fun, not to the death.  

There was a group of kids down the block called “The dirtbags” who used to challenge us.  I accidentally hit one right in the head with gravel one time, while just laying down grazing fire down the road.  Was scared, and it led to a truce.

Another time, I accidentally hit a friend in the head with a chunk of asphalt.  I was chucking Mortars and Grenades while he hid in the bushes and shrubbery like the VC.   Felt pretty bad about that one, and still do, but he didn’t rat me out.  Luckily, it was just a minor flesh would.

One night our Boy Scout troop camped out at one of the kid’s dad’s hunt club property. We split into two teams and played capture the flag down the power lines. It evolved into us hurling rocks and dirt clods at the other teams when we knew they were hunkered in certain spots. At one point my dad came out to check on us and he got hit in the side of the head with a dried dirt clod and split his ear open. Thank god it wasn’t one of the rocks.

Edit to add this woulda prolly been 1995-1996ish

Millennial and definitely gotten into a few rock fights near the train tracks as kids. Some kid hit me with a train track rock from the top of the hill and got me right in the head and split my head open. I specifically say train track rocks because if you know what I'm talking about they are big and jagged. I sprinted up that hill and caught up with him a ways down the tracks and when I got finished with him he was bleeding worse than I was.

When I was 7 my apartment complex and the neighboring one would get into it sometimes. They had the high ground and I wasn't strong enough to hit anything up the hill, so I ran back and forth collecting ammo for the older kids. Took a baseball-sized one to the forehead, swelled up about the size of an egg. I didn't get in trouble because technically I wasn't throwing rocks.
