    How many of you have ever been paintballing? What did you think? My husband and I are going this weekend and I really don't know what to expect. And just how painful is it going to be? :eek:

    So if you have any information on this and would like to share it with me, it would be much appreciated! :D Thanks!!!

    P.S.
    Also any rules or certain games that you play while doing this would give me an idea too.

    Edited for another question.

    What also is the best thing to wear? I know old clothes, but what kind? Someone told me to wear lose fitting not tight, is that true?

    Mwhahha. I can tell you first hand that as a woman you will definitely want to wear some THICK upper protection. My relatives play this game including my husband when we can afford the paintballs. They come in with some of the ugliest bruises you'll see. We're in the country so they play in the woods. They all love it, but I personally will NOT play the game because I've seen those paintballs almost break the skin. If it brings em joy and relaxation though, I say go for it. Have fun and keep your mask on at ALLLL times lol.

    Wear a couple of layers, preferably something somewhat thick on the outside layer.

    Remember that it's all in fun, and watch out for the geeks that take it too seriously.

    My pastor's grandsons and my friend Codey have played that together before on Sunday's after church....scary to see their bruses on Sunday nights afterwards! I REFUSE to play something that will leave bruises on me! When I was real little, me and the neighborhood kids {all ten of us!} would fill up buckets of crab apples and sling em at each other....that was painful enough! The bigger them things were, the worse the sting! Hehe, there's NO WAY I'd play with a paint ball gun! OUCH, that just SOUNDS painful! :eek: [​IMG]
