Paintballing while active?

So how is paintballing while stationed? Do bases usually have paintball fields around? I just wanna know what itl be like once I join the Air force after tech school. I feel like with my luck ill be stationed at the one base with no field around

Paintball is illegal in the Air Force as it fosters a culture of violent extremism.

Dang, I hear they want to make food illegal in the Air Force too because it encourages obesity

I quit because of where I was stationed

Depends on the paintball community around the base

There's a field but I can't afford it and its really small

Nicest field I've been to as far as shop and stuff just small and pricey

i paintball'd competitively one season between deployments, just local D4-D3 tournaments and nppl las vegas 2012, other than that i just went out when i could if i had the urge to play, during season i played every weekend, sometimes twice a weekend traveling 2.5 hours each way for practice/tournaments, its a ***** if your stationed somewhere not near paintball fields. If i did it again id only play if i was stationed closer, was such a waste of money.

It all depends on where you get stationed. Anywhere in so cal and you can play all the time. There's even support from the branches.
Of course it also depends on your command and optempo

I played for an all Marine speedball team on active duty. Even got TAD orders to play in tournaments. And every base I went to (Marine base that is) had a field. I didn't see one when I went to Kadena AFB in Japan. But I'm sure some have one. . Semper Fidelis

Kadena AB has the largest AF paintball community in Asia (and a field)...

Anyways. There's lots of fields in Texas, you won't see them due to tech school. Not every airbase has a field (or a good field), not ever airbase is near one either. So it just depends.

Seems like Marines are closest to the paintball scene, but it's possible to stay active in the AF. I have.

for some it is hard for some it is easier. I am currently in the submarine community and we never truly know our schedule so it is hard to do major events unless you want to plan a little last minute. just like everyone else here said it also depends on how close a field is to you. I play local tournaments and benefit tournaments such as autism. I have been trying to get an all military members d3 team together in my area since I am in Washington and you have lewis-mcchord as well as a plethora of naval bases. but it is always hard because of each individual schedule you have to work around as well as duty days. I say in the end if you have time to play go play regardless of how serious you are. good luck
