Ultimate Paintball

I was checking out a friend’s Multiply site and was very intrigued with the photos she uploaded of her and her husband clad in complete paintball regalia.  I have never played paintball before, but after seeing those photos, I thought it would be a lot of fun.  It’s an activity that is definitely way out of my comfort zone!  I casually mentioned to hubby that maybe we ought to give it a try with some of our friends sometime.  While we haven’t decided on an exact date yet, I thought I’d read up on it a little.  I ended up at the Ultimate Paintball site.  And wow, I didn’t realize the game was so, well, serious. :)

The equipment all sounded so alien to me: barrels, hoppers, tactical vests, etc.  For the certified paintball enthusiasts there are different gun packages to choose from.  I believe the most popular are the Tippmann A-5, Tippmann 98 Custom, Smart Parts Ion and Spyder Pilot ACS.  I’m kinda liking the spyder paintball  guns though, because they’re the most affordable, not that I’m planning on buying my own gun.  What I wouldn’t mind buying though are the casual apparel.  I just think it’s a little icky to be renting those.  Don’t you think so too?

Anyway, I’m looking forward to finally playing Paintball with hubby and our friends. I feel I’m gonna be good at it. Hee hee. ;)

    Paintball is an updated version of live chess, tag, hide-and-go-seek, and capture the flag made into a fun recreational and competitive sport. Paintball is a very safe sport to play as well :) I strongly recommend it!
