Paintball "guns" are very inaccurate due to there lenght of barrel. you have to target practice at a shooting range because the shape of the "marker" has a close resemblance to the m249 light machine gun. It is illegal to shoot this "marker" in ur backyard. The maximum distance a paintball can travel before hitting the ground is exactly 30ft.
The paintball field acts as the players canvas. it is often filled with colorful balloons that players use to hide behind. the dimension of the field is 15ft X 25ft because paintball markers are not able to shoot past 32ft. The "marker" is loaded with balls from the top. A "Ballsack" or "hopper" is used to hold the balls and is glued to the top of the "marker"so that when the "players" run or melee with there "markers" the balls wont go flying everywhere.
Paintballs are usually not biodegradable or wash off easily unlike the crayola markers. Some biodegradable paintballs are available but cost twice as much as non biodegradable ones because instead of toxic paint it is filled with fresh deer blood.
Colorful clothing/jumpsuit is required to play this "sports". also a full face mask is needed to protect ur face from getting paint/blood on it.
This sports is favored by, rich men, homosexuals, and people who love to show there dime sized bruses to there friends.

It is a requirement for all organized paintballing that all players (or "ballers" as they call themselves, which also has a gay connotation) be of the white breed of human. Participants are routinely checked during a game to make sure they are of white descent. In an attempt to "cover their asses," most "ballers" insist that it can be played by people of all races. Indeed, this is completely untrue.
This game takes on an eerie and all together too close for this author's comfort resemblance to small unit tactics that this author practised when this author was in his country's armed forces...
The players of this "game" are usually wealthy overgrown adolescents that have yet to grow up; Also, one finds the washouts and unsuitables that can't make it into their own country's armed forces...
The ones that think that this is a great game should try carrying a Rifle, a Full and HEAVY Rucksack, Tactical load bearing webbing, and a STEEL HELMET THAT WEIGHS MORE FOR EVERY SECOND YOU WEAR THE FUCKING THING!!!
The Rich and Powerful like Presidents, Prime Ministers, Kings, and Princes should do this themselves, and get their family members in on the fun. It won't go on for long...Paintball! What a ridiculous excuse for reality!!!"
Someone quoted this about paintball and i would just like to let them know that paintball isn't just for "wealthy overgrown adolesents." most real players of this sport aren't even that rich! In fact, hardly any hardcore paintball player has a high income. It's just that we love this fantastic sport and we prefer to spend our money on paintball than our car, girlfriend, etc. And another thing, some of the people I play with, including myself, are/were in the military, so we know what it feels like to have all that weight on us. So you can go kiss my ass if you don't like this sport, which by the way is ranked the third most extreme sport.
