Took my son and 5 friends to a woods paintball field today for 4 hours of battle. I had only seen the speedball stuff on tv and it didn't interest me at all, bt this looked fun. Still, being dressed in shorts and a t shirt I don't think I better try it so I just watched and talked with the people there. I'll probably take the plunge and get some equiment to play with my son next time. Problem is I want the expensive stuff! I wish the paint balls were accurate enought to do some sniping, but the physics of a round gelatinous ball being shot out a tube at high velocity just doesn't make for good accuracy. I offer to fly arial survelance for the players next time to spot the other teams and some of the grown ups actually thought it would be a good idea.
