It's Not About The Paintball Jersey!
Before I start I want everyone reading this to know that I'm a newbie at paintball. This story is actually about the first time I've ever played on a real paintball field (one that you pay to get in). I've shot a paintball marker before but only in the woods and just messing around. OK!
It was on a Sunday in sunny California some buddies of mine wanted to try paintballing. So we all head out to the local paintball field. We didn't have much experience in paintballing, but what the hell! Were all grown men and how much can a paintball hurt anyway. Well we finally got there and all you see are fully cloth (jersey from head to toe) paintball player. I mean they make us look like hillbillies that just came out from the woods from a 30 year hibernation. We were wearing only our street clothes like jeans and tees. The first impression of the other players make me wonder if these guys are as good as they dress. Well that whole day we played about 8 speedball game and 2 rackball, and yes I'm very proud to say we never lost a game. Yes we got shot from time to time and yes some does sting a little bit, but the point is we were just as good and maybe even better then most of the players that day. So the real moral of the story is don't let the poser fool you with their egos and angels. Our best gun was a DM4 and the worst was a tippman A-5.
