    :coold:

    I figured my performance would be awesome.

    Yah. :rofl: There were about 16 of us out there, mostly with rented equipment but a few people had these kickass setups, guns with rails, etc. :o

    Game 1: 4-on-4

    GO!
    Me: "Hm. I guess I should go for those barrels over there, they look like they'd be good cover..."WHAP. Hit in thigh. :o

    Shots fired: Maybe 5.


    =========================================

    Game 2: 4-on-4

    GO!

    I haul ass to the barrels this time.

    I lean around the barrels a little to fire.

    "Hey, this is cool!" WHAP "OW SUNOVABITCH!!!" Hit in hand. :eek4: OK that stings a bit.

    Shots fired: Maybe 15


    =========================================

    Game 3: 8-on-8 CTF

    GO!

    I take cover behind an old truck. I fire over the hood and around the front of the truck. Balls are splattering all around me. I am awesome. WHAP Hit in hand again. :mad:

    Shots fired: 45 or so.




    =========================================

    Game 4: 8-on-8 CTF

    GO!

    I decide to head for the cover of a shed after 15 seconds behind the truck. The shed looked good last game. WHAP Double-tap in the kidneys. (Didn't hurt, thick sweatshirt on.)

    Shots fired: 45 or so.

    The funniest part of this game was when one of my SrA ran up and shot the group CC in the ass from about 6 feet. :rofl: That's ballsy. :rofl:

    =========================================

    Game 5: 6-on-6 speedball

    Go!

    I head for different barrels in the corner of the play area. Dunno if I ever hit anyone, but I kept one dood pinned down. Every time he popped up I sent about 10 balls whizzing past him. :rofl:
    Finally I was the last guy left on my team, so it was like, 5-on-1. I ran out of paint and took one in the shoulder. Didn't realize I was out of paint until I was like "WTF :madfawk: I SHOT THAT GUY LIKE 5 TIMES WTF WTF" WHAP Oh. Hm. No paint? :rofl:


    Anyway. Pretty fun. :big grin:

    It's all about shoot and move, you have to be aggressive.

    I always did well when i used to play and it was because I wasn't afraid to get shot and always ran up on people. Man that was fun :o

    I only played once. I had a shitty attitude going into it but ended up having an absolute blast. If I had a group of guys to play with I'd go all the time.

    I've only played paintball once, and for the most part had fun.

    Attack and Defend, Spools, and Speedball or whatever it's called.

    I didn't like speedball, I like the slow tactical approach of what attack and defend was.

    I'm thinking of giving airsoft a shot.

    I used to paintball, but it wasn't worth the hassle, since there were no ranges within an hour of me, so I dropped it :dunno:

    I went commando on a team one time.

    5 on 5 to start. There was a creek right to the left of my teams starting position. Whistle blows and I jump in the creek.I keep cover for a while and wait for others to start popping up. Well, as I am hunkered down, my entire team gets shot and only one of the other team is shot. great......

    The other team had no idea where i was. One guy starts approaching our starting point and I am to his left at the end of the creek. Fired three shots. All hits. I notice people looking in my direction. I drop down and get to the other side of the creek. I see a barrel coming through the brush about 15 yards out. He stands out. I fired three shots, all hits. Again, i move back to my old position.

    My sisters boyfriend at the time thinks i am still at the far end of the creek. he literally walks past me while I was 10 feet away. Let him walk abit more and fire three. Three hits in the fucking neck :eek4:

    At this time, the last one on their team spots me and pins me down. As he is approaching and shooting for cover, his gun jams :eek5: So I stick my head up and find where he is. While he is servicing his gun, i lay in the creek and shimmy away. He gets his gun cleared and comes at my previous position. I take one shot at him. Right in the back of the head :coold:


    Best round I have ever had. My sisters boyfriend had a welt the size of a fucking golfball on his neck :rofl:

    I sold my Tippmann x7 two days ago. I used to enjoy the sport, but it seems it's dominated by fucktards the last few years. I stopped playing in public games because I hate the cheating and bullshit.

    I am mega-addicted to paintball. Possibly as addicted to it as I am real guns. Too bad some of you guys don't live in the Atlanta, Georgia area.....

    I think I'd have to do it a lot more often to justify spending firearm-like amounts of money on equipment, but I did have a good time.

    I don't think they'd stand a chance... they can't shoot the same way they can in paintball. Paintball guns have zero recoil (from what I can see in those videos and will find out tomorrow). They can peak out around corners and will only get dirty... if they do that in a gunfight, they'll lose their face.


    Edit: :doh: I thought you were talking about the kids in the video...:o

    Yah. Not so awesome. 'Course if they were real bullets flying I'd be on the frackin' deck at the first pop and low-crawl my ass to cover instead of jogging. Also. Shit. I wouldn't get myself into a 4-on-4 close-range engagement with real weapons. :ugh:










    Sniping from a distance FTW

    yes, paintball is really NOT realistic. I'll be very gung-ho in a paintball match... but in a real-steel scenario, I would not.

    Silly liberals always thinking they can pick and choose what situation the bad guy is going to put you in.

    Point taken. But not being a LEO or a ground-pounder in IZ, it seems unlikely. ;)
