i dont have that problem,at my school people are either like "sweet i wanna play sometime" and ask when i go next. or other people say "where do you play, what gun you got. what barrel you have ect..."
in fact on the first day of school when we did interveiws and asked for hobbies/sports at least 5 kids per class had pball down, which was kinda weird.
its my friends parents that get all worried, "i dont want any guns here", "_____, when you go over to his house NO PAINTBALLING"
Luckily most of my family (besides my grand parents) are all ok withthe idea of gunsso we have the works on guns, and anything gun/marker related is warmly welcomed here!
At first I thought ppl would be somehow offended (You know those damn dirty apes, err, I mean liberals, theyre like the same thing, whos gonna know?) But they had the opposite reaction, the only person that gave me negative input was my grandfather who said I was just wasting my money but he says that whenever I have a hobby.
