What do you think of paintball?

I am doing a informative speech over paintball, and I need some help.

If you guys could post what you love/like about playing paintball, what benifits and troubles it has gave you. (only if applicable). thanks guys!

When I give speeches for class about paintball I mention that while it's fun, there's also a level of stress involved that you don't get elsewhere in life. So when I go back to the real world I'm calm about a lot of things that upset people. Hope that makes sense.

Is this speech for competition, or just a grade in a class? How much time do you have? I would start with some history of paintball and how it developed into the sport it is today, then go on to do some explanation of the different playing styles/game formats, and finish with the kind of "paintball as told by the players" idea that you're trying to develop here. Good luck with the speech.

I should have clarified; how long is the speech supposed to be? My recommendation remains the same: a little time talking about the history of the game, and the different ways that it's played, either mixing in the "game according to the players" quotes, or save them for the end.

There's nothing like being shot at. No that I play minly woods an scenario ball, its the feeling of stalking your "prey" The adrenaline high is amazing, like hunting wild animals only better.

Any der hunter knw what "buck fever" is an aintball is like that. Heart pounding, blood boiling fun.

That's exactly what I did last year when I wrote a 2,100 word paper on paintball, because we could choose anything we wanted to ,write about, as long as it was atleast 1,500 words, so I figured why not write about something I love.
