Getting my son into paintball.

I love the fact that with 50 cal low impact the age limit comes down to six. Once a month the local field has a low impact for kids. We're going for the first time this month! Hopefully he loves it....

50 cal is a huge difference from 68. It really makes the games more enjoyable. You have to play closer because they don't have the mass to fly as far and the pain is very easy to deal with.

One of the first things we noticed when we started offeing 50 cal was how the younge kids got close to the action right away where normally many of them hid behind the back bunkers afraid to move forward. True for many of our new female players as well. When they are in the action actually playing rather than cowering in the back, they have more fun as well.

He wasn't a huge fan of getting shot, but he's still young, we'll try again later on!

My 7 yr old first played with the 68s and got shot twice in the head. Was funny too he dropped his ion and grabbed his head and was like I'm hit did it break?!?! Said no and picked up the gun and kept playing!

Was super proud cuz he's kind of a nerdy kid but thought he would quit right then. Can't wait to get him in 50 cal hell have a blast!

He's just six, so we've got plenty of time to try again.
