Everybody gets 'em from a busted finger to a busted lip, to some poor son of a gun falling down an elavator shaft at a rescent event (from what I've heard he's good) to the most BA most proud moments you've had, what are they? Share the most painful and memorable (or both) moments you've had.

As for injury, nothing serious (yet)
as for memorable, all of Lion Claws at Red Storm East, especially when we held that Iinclined hallway from Tan the second day.

Injury: I was playing on some private property with a whole bunch of friends (30-40). There was this little shed/house thing with two rooms. The floor was cement and the walls/ceiling were/was plywood. The large room was about 8x12, the small room was about 8x6 and had two windows opposite the door. We were trying to hold the house for a certain amount of time when we got pushed into the small room. One guy came around the side of the house so we couldn't see him and decided it would be a good idea to stick his barrel in the window and empty his hicap on full auto. My face looked like it was hit by a shotgun. I was bleeding all over the place.

Proud moment(s): 1) I was playing on some different private property with a similar group of friends. I was behind this barn, facing their bog. I sprinted, slid behind a trash can that was laying down, took three shots and got three hits. Then I started getting shot from the side so I slammed myself backwards where I was covered by a crest. I peeked up, took a couple shots, and got the hit.

2) Gamepod Combat Zone. Final match. Everyone took off down the middle, and I took off around the outside. I went through the motel and made my way over towards the sports bar. I saw a muzzle peeking out so I pulled out my sidearm and got him out. Then I made my way along the adjacent hallway. I hid behind the door heard footsteps, so I waited. The same guy walked past the door and looked around the corner without peeking in. Got him out. Sprinted across and made my way behind the jail where I took a breather. I popped out and took out at least 8 guys before I got hit while sprinting across the street by someone that just respawned.

Injury:
I was playing a back yard match with around 20 guys in the woods behind my friends house.  His woods is basically a very big rocky slope.  I was running down it to cover behind us as they were coming around the bottom of the hill, and I lost my footing on a loose rock.  Next thing I knew, I slammed chest first into a fallen tree probably a foot wide.  I completely had the wind knocked out of me.  I ended up with a pretty good gash in my knee and a couple bruises on my chest.  Without my plate carrier I probably would've broken a rib or two though.

Moment:
I'm not so much proud as this as I thought it was just hilarious.  It was at the same friends house with the rocky woods.  It was just a regular elimination game and it was down to two people vs. me.  I was lying at the bottom of the hill flat, behind a tree with one guy pinned behind a rock.  He kept calling for the other guy to come down, and even though i was in clear view, the other guy just couldn't see me.  He decided it would be a good idea to just come running down the hill.  When he as about 50 feet away I whirled around and just held down the trigger.  One BB made it's way through the back of his vest and is still stuck there to this day lol.  I ended up taking out the other guy without much trouble.

One day at a local outdoor wooded field my friends and I were using a mostly dry creek bed to flank the enemy. This creek bed is not super well known on the field, and it is about 15 feet below the standard field level, so sneaking around the enemy is generally a very easy task. The only real challenge to this path is keeping quiet so that they do not hear you approaching, and then the task of climbing out of the creek bed can be challenging since it is a mostly dirt/mud cliff. The first guy climbs up with little issue, but he ripped out the one good branch in the process (he's a pretty big fella), so when it was the next turn my other friend climbs up without issues until the last couple vertical feet of climbing. I proceeded to grab a new branch which was fairly suitable... And then came tumbling down. At first I thought he just fell, and all I could hear was the muffled screams coming from his gas mask, but he quickly stood up and ran straight past me screaming "BEES!" so it was pretty obvious what was happening at that point. I got the hell away from the spot as wasps chased us all the way back through the creek bed. He was stung many times, but luckily they didn't seem to think I was appetizing.

The point of the story is that airsofters vs. wasps is a really unfair fight.

A friend of mine accidentally shot a very large nest with a grenade launcher once.  Being summer and 99 degrees, we were all in short sleeves... my friend went charging through the middle of the field yelling "guys I just shot a wasps nest runnnnn!" and it was clear in under a minute lol.
