Played my first game at maybe...7-8ish? But I never touched another paintball gun until last year, when I was 14. Not as scary as it was, but I wish I could have kept playing, such a fun sport.

I was quite the late coming compared to most people. I first played when I was 18. It was my first year in college and my best friend (and current roommate)'s brothers (16 or 17 at the time) were going with some of their high school friends and teachers so I decided to tag along and try. It was such a blast, in one game one of the teachers shot me in the chest close to point blank and it bounced, lol. I had a mark on my chest for the next year.

Around 10 or so at a friend's birthday party. Then my parents bought me my own gear so that I wouldn't have to pay rental prices, and I played a few more times. Stopped playing for a few years then picked it up again around 16, but only just recently became obsessed.

10 or 11, played at least once a month. At 14 I played a handful of beginner tourneys with my older cousins, closest field closed down, my cousins friends changed life directions/moved/jail /kids.

Started playing again 2 years ago at 19. For 3 friends into. Life interrupted before we did any serious play. People joined military/kids/etc. now I'm 21 and I go every other weekend alone or with a few kids I met on here actually.

I was twelve when I first started playing. Before paintball, I played laser tag every weekend religiously. Then, when I discovered paintball, it was all over.

I'm twenty-four now and I still manage to play every weekend, sometimes I miss a week here and there.

23 years ago in 1989 when I was 12 years old. Played a pump game with some guys from my dads work. This was back when shop safety goggles were acceptable eye protection!! Good times, but I remember being scared to death.
