Paintball

Postby Omaha Red Sox » Sun Nov 26, 2006 6:31 pm

Anyone here paintball? I used to, but that was a long time ago and I believe my gear is probably outdated.

I'd like to get back into it, but I'm curious to know what brands to look for and what to avoid. Any paintball experts out there with some pointers and advice?

I used to play paintball many moons ago (oh, six years ago), but lost interest as quickly as I got into it.

Surprisingly, I've never gone. One of my friends, his coach owns a paint balling place near us. It looks pretty painful, and I'm not very good at that kind of stuff. I think I'll stick with hockey. ;-D

P.S. I suggest you don't try to get back into it, you don't want to pull your groin or anything.. :-b j/k

It won't really matter, it's probably old and rusty just like you.

Haha, you made it too easy. :-b Just kidding around.

At the rate we ridicule Omaha, the faster he's going to take up paintball and before you know it, you'll know why he puts the Angry in 12 Angry Men. :-b

Seems like an expensive hobby for one that I know I wouldn't stick with. Some guys at work want to go, but I think i'm going to pass. It looks like fun though I guess.

i've played a decent number of times and i love it. haven't played in about 5 years, but i definitely want to again. one thing is that i only like playing outdoors. played indoors once and it was possibly the dumbest thing ever. woods and urban courses are far superioir IMO b/c for me its all about the environment. i hate watching the ESPN crap where there's just a bunch of inflatable barriers. everyone having semi-autos also makes it much more fun.

We own quite a few acres of woodland so that is where we'll be paintballing. I've talked to people who have gone to the 'courses' and you've echoed their sentiment. I much prefer the outdoors anyway. ;-D
