Re: My first time paint-balling today...

Awsome.
Hope you have a good time.

I went paintballing and sucked at it haha, thought i would PWN cause I played a lot of CS:S at the time. I failed miserably.

I think the only person I actually managed to hit was the field marshall...several times in the gonads haha.

Also...it doesn't as much as some people make it out to..

Re: My first time paint-balling today...

If your new, I advise to stay back and snipe until you get the feel for the game and how the others play. After that you can play on the front lines picking them off and dodging. Be careful sometimes if you hit the ground to hard the tank will get bumped around and eventually loosen the valve. I always blow a few O-rings during games so keep backup, and for the kids that forget their gear, dont let them borrow.

Re: My first time paint-balling today...

Just make sure no one is playing with any fully automatic guns, those aren't fun to play against.

Re: My first time paint-balling today...

I tried it once years ago, and as was already mentioned I stayed back and took the sniper approach. I was actually able to hit a couple people before being spotted and taken out myself. Have fun!

It didn't hurt nearly as much as I thought it would.

Infact, I've only got one bruise.

Going again in a couple of weeks time!

Re: My first time paint-balling today...

Paint balling can be alot of fun, but it can get real expensive when you start burning through the ammo. After a couple of goes, I came to the conclusion that I was wasting money better spent on guitars, so I gave it the flick.

I've never met a Sylvia Paint, but I did know a young lady named Sylvia a couple of years ago, and she helped me paint her tonsils a few times.

Rock on!
