I use the term "marker" for the simple purpose of preventing confusion. If I talk about a "paintball gun", people unfamiliar with the concepts of paintball tend to think I'm talking about a firearm.

Among paintball folk, though, I use the terms pretty much interchangeably.

I *try* use the term marker when I'm around people that don't play. I have guns, I have markers. I don't treat them the same at all.

Me too, though I prefer marker actually. I have many guns and none of them use compressed air!

I would've thought you really were being sarcastic for a second there if you hadn't mispelled "they", "sarcasm", and "too".

EDIT: For those who are confused, he posted, I quoted and replied. While I was typing he deleted his old post because he forgot to quote mine at first.

LOL... Sorry. Couldn't help it.

Yep and not only that but a paintball "marker" is a gun according to any dictionary definition.

I guess we should start calling firearms permanent markers, to satisfy all the PC people.
