Well (it's a deep subject), I shot my kid.... Yup I did it. We were in the front yard playing with water balloons and the new slinger we got for them when I shot Noah in the leg. It would have been fine except the balloon failed to pop. It did pop when it plopped into the SHARP grass... So basically I shot my kid with the equivalent to a rotten lemon. He's just fine, didn't cry, but it left a little welt on his thigh. I instinctively fired at his legs not wanting to risk a head/face shot (he's my first born) but that didn't work. So, in short, don't do what I did to your own kid. Do it to your friend, brother, or neighbor, but never try to bust your kid with a launcher fired water balloon. Even if he tells you to "stop being a chicken, dad, and just do it." I knew better... Now you do too.
