Fun time my first time out

This story took place about a year ago, my very first experience with paintball. Like I think most new players, I was pretty timid, not wanting to get shot, and since I don't generally play with any type of gun on a normal basis. The outing was hosted by the company I work for, so all of us were pretty much noobs.

The first game was the one with blow-up bunkers (sorry I don't know the game names yet). I was timid, but damned if the rest of my team was too! No one would move. So I was the only one to move up. I'd typically make it to about 1/2 way, then get shot ... SOMETIMES BY MY OWN TEAM!

2nd field was (I guess it's called) woodsball. Out in the woods. Had houses where we played castle and CTF. I found that I'm a pretty big feller for this game at 6'3, 220lb. Most of the trees were 6" or less, so finding good hiding places was difficult. However, I did get my "moment to shine". Field rules were such that we couldn't shoot within 10', but we could "tap out" our enemies bunkers, so anyone there was considered out. I put myself on the ground and butt-walked to each bunker. I managed to tap out 4 players that game. I was quite proud of myself.

The last game was another field with tires. Most of the game was frantic shooting. After a while, it was down to me, and 2 on the other team. I got cornered on both sides. One of them was my boss, a fun loving, and good guy. Also, a lot smaller and faster than me. Anyway, I watched and saw him get prone behind a stack of tires. So when I saw my chance, I ran as quickly as I could to another bunker that happened to be near, but sort of behind his. No shots ensued as I ran, so I figured I hadn't been seen. After a minute or so, I decided to "end this silly game" and charged his bunker. He was still prone, facing my older bunker, so it was obvious he didn't know I wasn't there any more. I put about 3 shots at about 10' to his ass! Oh yeah! How many people can say they've shot their boss in the ass? I can! Well, the other guy saw me at this point (I'd all but forgotten about him), and took me out about as quickly.

All-in-all, win or lose, I had a great 1st day.

Good to hear you had fun! Hopefully you get out more to the point where you get your own gear!

Cheers!

Slowly working on that. Going cheap with 98 Customs for the kid and I. For now, and for the foreseeable future, probably mostly yard and woods play, so no need to load up on $500 markers. Probably will get better masks for protection, and a couple cheap barrels.

great idea on the masks. nothing wrong with the 98 but you can go cheaper if you are looking to save money

Everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, that makes a firearm better makes a paintball marker worse. They are 2 very different worlds with nothing except a trigger in common
