Paint ball...

Well I have been wanting to get into this for along time, and one my new good buddys is into it... So I got me a good gun, i think its like a excellerator 6.0 or something like that... Anyhow, wondering if anyone else is doing it on here and if they got any tips? Oh I was thinking of getting a camo outfit...

Re: Paint ball...

I have a Tipman 98, and like it a lot. The only camo I wear is pants, other than that just a regular t-shirt and tennis shoes.
Paintball is a good time, but can be dangerous, so ALWAYS wear proper face and eye protection.

Re: Paint ball...

Ya I do see alot of risk, espesicialy ***DOWN STAIRS***... If I get hit in the nutz, ohhhhh god I cannot begin to imagine how that would hurt being hit 300-400FPS...
I already have a camo shirt, guess I'll just get me some pants... I was thinking since this gun is so damn chromey and anadized shiney blue, I am going to get rubberbands and put mossy oak from the tree's all over it... Good idea I think lol

Re: Paint ball...

i got nipped in the tip once and it was PAINFUL!! numerous "groin area" shots that made me think twice about what i was doing [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img] my friend got nailed in the wanker once...I knew it was bad becasue he was just down on the ground, still getting shot and he was just laying there, not yelling hit or anything...so I stopped play and we all laughed at him [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Paint ball...

I have a Spyder TL, we mostly just go out and have our own battles amost friends etc. I wear a Realtree Tshirt I have and a Camo Hat on Backwards under my mask. Youd be surprised how much it has kept paint out of my hair...and they call it friendly fire... [img]images/graemlins/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: Paint ball...

I play tournament paintball and have played on a sponsored team and stuff.... i really suggest that you wear a cup when you play! I never play without it i've seen too many people get hit in the junk! I wear proper paintball pants and jersey... but for what u guys are doing just go down to your local army surplus store and get a pair of used camo pants and maybe a camo shirt... head bands bandanas and hats are also popular to wear under masks as it keeps paint off ure head nad sweat away from your eyes.
