How to deal with poor sportsmanship.

I don't mind the cheats, I can handle rude marshals, but poor sportsmanship has no place in anything. The answer, as always, is smile and ignore it. However, if you catch it on camera - share it with the world.

Well the ethical thing to do is to use a mounted cam and show it to the refs later. What most of us do anyway is to simply where it hurts, like any bare skin or knuckles. I don't have the money for a gopro so it isn't an option for me.

I remember Cheese Man saying that he is authorized to use steel ball bearings (.88g bbs) in his rifle, and set it to high power when he sees people not calling hits.
If the person just doesn't feel it, they will have a completely different reaction compared to someone who did and didn't call it when you tell a ref. It's hard to put reactions into words, you just sort of learn over time. If I think they didn't feel it, I'll say I believe them and I'm sorry I accused them. It havens VERY seldom though.
