Playing Paintball

I decided to go playing paint ball with some friends yesterday (Sunday). It was my first time playing paint ball. We rented semi-automatic guns, and played about 5 games (15 minutes each). It was mostly capture the flag missions. I did terribly. I got shot all but one of those games, and I don't think I shot anyone. Well, I might've. I randomly shot a bunch of lobbing long range shots into "enemy territory", don't know if I got anyone or not. I don't think I even saw where the shots came from that hit me.

I was really surprised at how seriously some people take it. They have their own $300+ guns, and someone even came dressed in a net with fake leaves. I'm guessing those are the guys that play every weekend and stuff.

From all the hiding in bunkers and running down the field getting to the next bunker trying not to get shot, my body's all sore today, but it was worth it. I'm glad went.

I resent that. I usually get about one kill for every 3 times I die in Halo.

Evan: That looks like a great gun, but it wouldn't help me out. I wouldn't see anyone, I'll still just blindly fire over enemy teritory and hope I hit someone, but at a much higher rate.

Brent: I don't know what kind of "paintball" you grew up with, but I think whoever led you to play "paintball" gave you the wrong idea.
