Fun!!!

this saturday, after work theres gonna be a ref prty...and where gonna play paintball at SC village all night long (for u who dont kno, SC doesnt ever do night games....so they dont have lights) anyways, theres gonna be games in the arenas (speedball) and in the jungle/desert scernario feilds

SOOOOOOOOOOOO, as kickass as this sounds, its gonna be hard, cause its gonna be pitch black, and i have tinted lenses, so im gonna use my teamates goggles. However, its gonna be dark, so im gonna need a flashlight, luckily, i have a pelican (best flashlights ever) but i dont wanna hold it, so i was thinking i could tape it to my gun or hopper...any suggestions.

ok at wal-mart there is a head strap flashlight thign and it would probably slip right over the visor on your mask that way all u have to do is look a certain way and it will light up that place, that way u don't have to add extra weight to your gun. my 2 cents

sounds fun

You can buy flashlight mounts to mount it on the barrel, or just duct tape it. I'd put it on you're marker though, instead of your head.

is everyone else going to use flashlights? if not then only your position would seen, i mean you would be easily spotted.

Here is what you do. It's awesome and looks sweet. No joke. Tape your flashlight to the bottom of your barrel so the flashlight is right under it. Do it with ductape. Make sure the on button for the light is pushable

use the necklaces for the players and put a glowstick in front and back of each bunker. that way you can see the bunkers and also other players/

you can put it on your barrel, just tape it with blue or purple painters tape, it will leave no residue.

use both... a cheap headlamp and a light on your gun... the glowsticks wouldn't be half bad either... if you need to see something (especially on your gun) its gonna be hard without a headlamp or atleast an extra light... also remember not only will the light help you see but it will also be a magnet for your oponents... get somethin thats easy to turn on and off.

You can buy a spotlight and strap it on your back. Then run extension cords everywhere.

Just kidding


The strap on flash light sounds like a good idea though.

Flashlights will give off your position. Ninja yourself up.

if they had a rule where everybody had to keep their flashlite on it would go ok. But a game w/ no flashlights lasts forever at night.

ok heres what u do go out there with your light on and then find a spot shut it off and wait for smeone else with a light on to get close enough then either shoot him with your light off or if he is in front of you turn it on blind him and shoot. yeah i know bad sportsmanship but it would be funny (only do it once if they don't see you they can't blame you.)

Don't use a flashlight. Eventually your eyes will adjust and you'll be able to see fine.
