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.

A Sport.

A Lifestyle.

There is nothing like it in the world. The comradery, the teamwork, the family, the energy. It's absolutely amazing. You get on the field, butterflies in your stomach, ready to shoot some people in the face. You look at your opponents who are ready to do what they do. You glance at your teammates, with fire in their eyes. This is what you live for. Nothing matters but this. Right now. With your family. Working together to achieve a goal. This is paintball.

Love it, for it is what you live for.
Paintball is life.

Airsoft is death.

When a group of males masturbate and attempt to ejaculate on each other while avoiding the semen of other players. Can be played as a team sport or free-for-all.
Person 1: I was about to splatter you when Johnny vaulted the couch and shot his load right in my face!

Person 2: Johnny is a beast at paintball

Johnny: I fucking love paintball!

One of the worlds fastest growing extreme sports. The game consists of using markers to propel a animal fat/food colouring filled ball at opposing players. Basically, laser tag, but with ammunition. Paintball can be played in many formats, the two most popular being speedball (professional paintball, played on a field of balloon-type bunkers) and woodsball (played in the bush). Contrary to popular opinion, paintball is one of the safest mainstream sports, safer than baseball or even bowling. Almost all paintball injuries are caused by morons, whether they are stupid enough to remove thier mask during a game, or forgetting to put a safety plug in their gun between games.
I went and played a couple hours of paintball today. I've got a few good welts, but nothing major.

A game in which opposing teams use CO2 operated guns to propel a ball filled with paint at one another. When you are hit with the "paintball" you are considered "out of the game". This continues until the requiered objective is complete(usually capturing a flag or eliminating the entire opposing team).Special games of "Speedball" are often played where the players are in close proximity to each other, often using inflatable "bunkers" as thier only cover. The guns or "markers" as they are often referred to as, use CO2 or Nitro as a propellant for the shperical shaped projectile or "paintball". When fired at a high velocity, they are known to bruise or even break bare skin. This is why there is a common limit to how hard they can shoot usually around 300fps.
Now stop acting like little bitches arguing over whos better and SHUT THE FUCK UP!!

any sexual interaction that involves massive amounts of visible hickeys, as if the 2 (or more) had played paintball and were sporting the welts.
they disappeared into the bathroom for about a half hour and when they came out and everyone saw their necks we knew they played some paintball

A massive turd that hits the back of the bowl with such force that it takes several flushes to break it down.
HOLY GOD! That turd is plastered against the back wall of the toilet like a paintball!

Must have been the Mus 2nd Hole.
