    okay so i am getting told that i HAVE to tomorrow .__.
    and i was like , it's gonna hurt [from what i've been told].

    and i'm weak + scrawny . i don't work out, and am just bleh .
    i said i wasn't gonna go paintballing, but they said i HAD to go .
    if not then everyone can't play -.-

    so now im wondering does it hurt ?
    i checked the site of the place we're going to .
    all we get is a helmet, face mask + goggles, 100 paintballs, semi-auto gun, and unlimited CO2 ?

    apparently, you can get a jumpsuit upgrade for $4 :3
    anyway, i don't even know what im gonna wear if i do go >.<
    what am i suppose to wear anyway?
    i can understand the jumpsuit is for preventing the paint stains on your clothing but like, all i know is that you HAVE to wear layers of sweaters but iunno how much layers of pants you have to wear. like all i got are jeans and some joggers in my closet >.

    I would say put on like 2 pairs of pants if you're that worried about getting hurt. Also, for that kind of thing it doesn't really matter if you don't work out. If you're dexterous, it could be an advantage that you aren't huge, because you'll get hit less.

    It's not THAT bad, but it does hurt if you constantly get shot. Probably some bruises for a few days afterwards. You'll have an advantage being smaller though, much harder to shoot than a big guy. Just try to enjoy it and you'll have fun. Oh, and stay low, it helps you aim better, and don't waste all your bullets. Take time with your shots, and you'll score more hits on them than a random sprayer. (Unless it's point blank of course).

    the pain alone should be incentive enough not to get shot.

    Disregard pain, acquire testicles.

    I went paintballing over the summer and had a blast. I wore a pair of jeans an a shirt with a hoodie over it. That's it. It stings for a tiny bit, but it goes away after a minute or so. You won't feel it with all the adrenaline rushing through you. Even if you're just stationary, you feel pumped and anxious.

    Trust me, you'll enjoy it. I was nervous at first about getting shot, but then I got shot, and it didn't hurt. I even got shot in the back of the neck (My dumbass friend thought it wasn't against the rules)...

    Paintballing is awesome. Sure at first you might think about getting hurt, but that adds to the adrenaline rush. So put your war paint on and go kick some ass! [​IMG]

    Paintball is for wusses, Airsoft is the real mans sport. I run an airsoft store as my current business. I sell sniper rifles that hit you with a .8 gram solid plastic 6mm BB at 650 fps. Trust me that will take out a front tooth if hit there. A paint pall is 2.9 grams and at 120 fps max so chill. The worst will happen is you take one on bare skin and it feels like a sweet bee sting for a few seconds and its over. I have scars from airsoft so don't come saying your scared of pussyball.

    A word on tactics:
    Dogs and humans almost never look up unless they feel a need to.
    Snipe from the trees if you can climb.....and yanno....if there are any trees.

    Most times paintball paint does not permanently stain clothing.

    Paintballing is awesome! it can hurt but thats half the fun of it and then you have battle scars to prove you went paintballing [​IMG]
    And if you are still worried about getting hurt, just be stealthy, like a ninja [​IMG]

    I went with a big group of friends this Friday, and it does sting for about a minute, but then the adrenaline takes away the pain! Go and enjoy yourself, it's great fun! But if you're only buying 100 balls, they'll only last about 10 minutes! [​IMG]

    I really hope that's not as suggestive as I think it is.

    Some kid in my team kept trying to grab my balls, it was really annoying.

    well they give you 100 paintballs since it's part of the price you pay .
    if you want more paintballs, it costs $10 for 100 and $240 for 2000 .

    oh and i think it's a private game .
    so just friends and they're like 15+ of us ?
    meh >.<

    all i know is that i gotta bring a sweater, pants and yeah xD.
    there were jumpsuits for $4 and i've always wanted to try one , so i might get it so my clothes don't get ... painted.
