It seems to me that anyone who is really into fps type games would get a kick out of paintball. Its the most fun you can have wearing pants.

It sounds fun, but that would require me to get up out of this chair and leave the house. But I've heard others talk about it.

Think of it as paintball with fully automatic weapons=)

6mm BBs don't stain clothing, but they sting. If you're hit, it's a matter of honesty that you 'drop dead'. The best thing is that you don't have to worry about paint of your gear between skirmishes. Allot of paintballers hate airsoft though.

I played a little over the weekend, and got shot in the ass /infopop/emoticons/icon_frown.gif I couldn't sit down for at least 2 days! Believe me, when you get shot there, you STAY down!

I play paintball quite abit actually, I have eight guns. All pistols, 10+1 we bring reloads with us and mostly play assault type games although an occasional CTF is quite fun /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Airsoft hurts a hell of alot more than paintballing, even if you dont' get paint on your clothes, I would not want to take a shot in the balls.

Me and my friends used to run around with those Daisy air rifles and shoot each other, its alot of fun, but painful /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif I shot one guy in the knee once while he was running top speed, it looked just like the movies where the guy dives sideways and shoots people. Damn that was funny, he had a bigass bruise on his knee afterwards. /infopop/emoticons\icon_wink.gif

Have you been shot by an airsoft gun? They are much lighter than paintballs, even though they don't break I'd say they hurt just about the same amount as a paintball, maybe a little less.

6mm BBs sting like crazy. But are probably less dangerous than paintballs. Of course, here we play with out guns limited to a maximum muzzle-v of 130 meters per second. Some crazy assholes play with 230 mps capable guns and metal pellets. Those are likely to put a hole through your testicles.

Daisy air rifles are not considered Airsoft BTW. Airsoft guns use 6mm BBs. Air rifles use 4.5mm ball bearings.

I suppose you could say you feel more pain more in airsoft. Not because individual shots are more painful, but because you usually get hit by a dozen pellets every time you 'die'.

I think I'll stick to my FPS games. They don't hurt at all. /infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

Heh, nope, daisy definitrly do not qualify as airsoft guns, I wouldn't know if they hurt alot, as I have never been shot with a metal BB luckily. Airsoft pellets though, ouch. Maybe it is the relatively small area that is being affected that makes it sting so much? Because I have noticed that paintballs leave bruises, but only sting for a couple of minutes after being shot, whereas airsoft guns just sting alot, and for a pretty long time too.
