so I went paintballing for the first time yesterday and it was really fun. I want to get into it but the paint hurt more thanvi thought it would. So what I'm asking is can you buy gear to make it not hurt?
its not that bad, just dont be a pussy about it. Back in the day when i played id be looking down a 05 ego with a boomstick, Halo B rip drive rockin a virtue board. You walk into a burnin lane and you got 5-10 breaks on you, and no ones even thinkin about callin bonus balls.
Oh and we used to just play woodsball and every now and then do a senario so I got one of those special ops tac vests that hold a fuck ton of stuff. I didn't buy it for this reason but it might sort of protect you a little, especially if you get hit in the pockets. When I played I just wear that and a t shirt and I guess that was sort of like protection.
yup its been said...baggy clothing and just grow a pair...and the best part about paintball is making someone else feel the surprise pop of getting hit...its such an adrenaline rush when you start getting fired on.
oh and also just man up. i paintballed in 6 or 7th grade and was in shorts and a sweatshirt. if you get all armored up it takes the fun out of it and the adrenaline wont come to you and youll play shitty.
To be honest it doesn't hurt that much, just get some sort of pain tolerance to it over time. Oh and try not to get shot in the neck. If you think anything else hurts you will change your mind after that.
First time I went speed balling I was behind this log-like object shooting at people, this guy ran up to it when I was shooting in a different direction, jumped over it and shot me in the leg 4 or 5 times, hurt like a mother fucking bitch. Had a two inch welt on my thigh for 2 and a half weeks.
the only paintball i play is in the woods at my cottage with cousins, friends and my brother. its basically 2 on 2 or a free for all with some super hack old beater guns. sure it hurts to get hit, but thats half the fun. its also not as bad when youre drunk lol
paintball is soooo expensive. and if you wear shorts try not to get shot from close up cuz the stupid wound doesnt heal for like 3 weeks...dumb. and yo dude, come on, get a grip and dont be a puss... it doesnt hurt that bad.... unless you get shwacked in the nuts like that dude way up there ^^ shittty.
