It happens on a random Monday, coming back from an event. Or late on a Sunday night, right before you get on the plane and you're about to be frisked for the third time. You're driving, you're flying, you're sitting in an airport seat with boys from the team. You're drinking stale coffee, trying to stay awake. You're explaining the fat welt on the side of your neck to a confused stranger or a best friend, or running through the sidewalks of LAX, trying to catch a plane. You're coming back to the other life... the one without paintball, where no one understands why you do it. You're tired, you're working off little sleep, the question creeps up and you try to ignore it. Why do I do this? Why the travel, why the losses, the missed work, the missed school, hours of practice, and the complaining girlfriend? Because the lure of living a paintball life is just too potent. And the products of the road, the travel, are memories forever, and trips, and strange lands with stranger people, At tournaments it feels like, for once, you actually get to live as loud as you want. It's worth the sacrifices, it's worth all the bullshit. Because if you work hard enough, a Sunday will roll around, and you'll be in the huddle, screaming, with your hand in, one among ten, playing for the world title, and suddenly all those clichés you ever heard make sense. And you are defined. You say it to yourself and it means everything. I am a paintball player. And this moment right here, is my life.

Paintball is a way of life.
by Larry Chan June 06, 2005
a sport originated by the wood industry, a large "marker" was used to fire paint projectiles at trees to show which ones to cut down. 1980, paintball became a sport, not well known to many ppl.Now, paintball has evolved into one of the best sports ever combining strategy and teamwork, paintbakll is a good motivator. Guns have evolved to fire at insane rates like 20 bps.

A sport in which two teams compete for two main objetives, the hanging of the flag or the elimination of the opposing team.
Airsoft and Paintball are just fine, dont get pissed off just because some guy said that pball / airsfot is gay, who cares anyway.

And for the army people, some of the people are not old enough to join in the military, but when age reaches they will have too. It is mandatory, and if they dont, they will be recognized as pussies so it does not matter anyway.
Paintball and Airsoft are cool.
An amazing kickass source of adrenaline that will take a week to come down from. Why spend sunday going to church when you could be shooting little kids with rental guns. What do you think Jesus would?
Dude. I spent all of sunday playing paintball. And guess who showed up?
