OK..I was going to say. If you couldn't handle that then your a wimp. You'll be fine playing paintball. It might be a good idea to go out and rent a gun for the day before you go out and buy one. If you want to get use to being hit by paintballs get one of your friends to shoot you over and over again until you get use to it. You'll realize pretty fast that it doesn't hurt that much and you get use to getting hit pretty fast. If you do that rember you and the person shooting you wears goggles.

there are a few factors that affect the pain inflicted by a paintball

1. velocity (the higher the fps the more it hurts. i think in tournies its like 300 fps which is pretty high)
2.how close u get shot. obviously getting bunkered will hurt more than a ball shot from the oppostie side of the feild
3. stale (old) paint. stale paint can really mess u up. my friend got bunkered with stale paint 2 years ago and still has the scar to show for it. the reason it does that is, when it hits, u it doesnt brake and the impact isnt relieved so it just bounces off u. its almost like being shot by a rock. a lot of feilds make u use their paint to make sure no one is out there getting lit up by ppl with stale paint.
4. how many times u get shot. if u get hit 20 times in the neck, it definetely hurts more than it would with one hit.

a paintball feels like a whip with a leather belt with a little push on it. it lasts for about 5 secs if u get shot from the other side of the feild but if u get bunkered (shot from very close up), ull feel it all day.

good luck benmorse,

jake

edit: in response to impyking- i got a pball gun before i ever played and the first day i played i loved it.

The max is 300fps but most fields make you set it to about 280fps. 280fps gives you some room just incase you have a velocity spike.

ive never played a tourny but soon i will. i asked the owner of my local feild what the average fps is in tournies and he said "300fps" and i said "but the feilds a bigger" he said "much bigger... but u'll get shot from the same distance"

Yea I did too but it might not have been a smart idea. What if I went there and hated it. I wasted $225 on something that I'll never end up using again. If he's so unsure whether or not he'll like paintball I think he should rent a gun first. He might end up wasting his money.

Well I guess your field is different. In the tourneys I've played in they made you use what ever speed you were shooting as long as it wasn't over 300fps. Most of use were shooting around 280 and 290fps.

The pain is similar to getting hit with a rubber band (Close range). It stings for a second then goes away. Though there are many factors that determine the overall "Pain" level. Velocity (speed at which the paintball is traveling), Distance (How far you are from the person who is shooting you) and where you are hit. For example- getting hit on the hand it more painful then getting hit on the bottom of you leg. Don't dread it, though all of us did. You can be rest assured that you'll have a great time.

the first time you get hit, it kinda startels you, and it does hurt. but over time, you having so much fun playing that it doesent matter. ive played for a while so im used to the sting. it feels like a cold bee sting, if you know what i mean.

It's not that bad, the people that say they hurt bad are the same kids that tell you it hurts when you get braces on.  They just think it makes them sound cool cause they take alot of pain or sumthin. 

Getting bunkered is about as bad as it gets, and even thats nothin to cry about.

just get your sibling to buy a new gun let them turn the velocity up when it was fine before and let them shoot you 20 feet away thats how i got into it. that hurt like crap but 300fps didnt hurt.

to me it feels like a rubber band snap and im 14 so that tells you something...

but thats me

I kinda like getting shot..

Lol the first day I went out I was scared but I got shot a few times and realized it wasn't that bad, it does sting a bit at first (to me its just like getting snaped with a rubber band) and after that it stung less and less.

Now I just feel the paint touching me, no sting at all, sometimes I have trouble telling if I got shot or not which bugs me lol. This is probebly from playing 2 times a week for 2 months straight lol.

Yeah, its jus you! Not everyone is the same, some will say it really hurts (depending the other fool was shootin hot or was shootin point blank), some will say it wont hurt, cause theyre a sadists (a person who thrives on pain).

Now, if you wanna really avoid the pain, jus wear a long sleeve shirt, or jersey....the shirt/jersey will take most of the impact of the paintball and away from the skin, you might experience a bruise from this but, its no big deal, it will heal and go away after a few days.

On the side note: Remember to always "keep yer mask on at all times on the field", the last thing you dont want is to have yer eyes taken out cus you was feeling hot and sweatin and decided to take the mask off.

Do not steal....the government hates competition!
