    i posted this in the main forum...didn't get one serious reply. i figured i'd post it in here, since i miss you ngas back when i used to get broly. i'm still waiting for a good deal on a bench on craigslist :x:


    so i've been playing paintball for...years. i notice that i always get hit on the same spot on my neck and hands. the neck shots usually bleed a little and bruise up, and then the hand shots bruise up. this happens to me at least once a week, and has been for the past couple of years.

    my question is...is this detrimental to my health in any way? making the capillaries that break any weaker?

    I played for years and my skin just adjusted and healed faster

    Now when I get shot the welt barely stays for 2 days unless I got bunkered directly on skin or my head

    i have gloves, but no neck protector. i usually don't wear my gloves though...kind of a pain to keep taking them off and putting them on. i only really wear them for tournaments or scrims when guys are pretty serious.

    pull your shoulders up so your neck isn't sticking out man.. That is how I have been playing for 2 years at least and haven't got my neck shot since.
    My hands have little white circle scars all over them from getting stabbed. Getting crushed in the side under your arm is the fucking worst
