The first time you played paintball

The very first time i played paintball was at age 16. it was at badlandz paintball field in illinois. it was the most fun i have had ever. being about to shoot at other people and them being okay with that sounded like my kinda fun time. after getting hit that first time i was hooked.

Honestly - it was a week or so ago; the nephew was kind enough to invite an old man along for the ride. Managed to hang (mostly) with the guys (+/- 18yrs. of age) and shoot a few in the process.

Now, I'm getting the buzz on here at work about having a "Team Building Exercise Event," with as many from work as I can manage to get at this paintball field, finding out that at least 2 of the other people in the office were avid p-ballers, and actively looking at gear and such so I can not look like a rental dweeb and to have a okay rec-baller's set up for other games too.

Fingers crossed!

I believe I was 13

My best friend had his Bday party and his parents bought him a 98, his dad a 98, and his mom a Spyder Victor.

We played in his backyard with just three of us and had a blast

3 months later I got my own 98 custom for my Bday, which is still my main gun Ten years later Him and I still play whenever we can.

Somewhere around 5 or so years ago, but I didn't really get hooked until recently. Played my first game of competitive speedball just the other day, up until then I was mainly woodsball and scenario.

This spring my buddy invited me on his work outing and we rented 98's. Much fun was had and now I'm in debt, trying to pay off my Geo and weekly shooting...
