    Default Does dh/so paintball

    Dh enjoys playing paitball. He played a bit in highschool and maybe once or twice a year since until about 6 months ago and is playing at least once a month now. He actually got a new gun for Christmas. I thought it was sort of a 'teenager' thing, but he said it is a real mix.
    Do any other dh/so paintball? Just curious.

    I have never played but I think I might attempt it at the CF paintball fundraisers. Does anyone know if getting hit by the "bullets" hurts? I heard it does but I figure if you can go through labour then bring it on haha.

    My DH was actually talking about getting into something like paintball... where is the best place to play?

    Mommy2Cuties, I've play 3 times and I wouldnt' say it really hurts. If they hit you dead on you will have a welt but it will basically feel like someone hit you with a wet towel. Most don't direct though so you don't feel them and you walk away with about 2 welts. I haven't been able to go in a few years as being pregnant is the time for it!

    I play paintball and i love it. i will tell you getting shot hurts like a bugger...but its only lasts a second and your good to go. I have been into playing about 5-6 months and i'm hooked. if anyone is ever up for trying it out let me know. I have a friend that has been playing for 20 years and he got me into it

    as for a place to go there are two PB shops here in london, Flagswipe and Adrenaline. Flagswipe has an indoor speedball field and both places have outdoor fields. The CF charity game will be at the Flagswipe field in Alymer.

    Just remember everyone that plays now was a new player at some time and dont be worried about having silly questions so ask away
