Nope.

11 years of paintball experience and I've never got shot in the nuts, or at
least never got shot close up enough to actually feel it. Personally, I think
its bad luck to wear a cup. I saw a friend of mine play with a cup on one
day and he got shot in the crotch twice that day.

Never wore one when I played. I actually shot my friend in that region though. Good times.

How can a cup save your life?   I can see it saving the lives of my unborn
children... but mine?

I dont but my empire pants take care of me there so Im alright but I once felt bad cause there was this noob it the corner pill of my field and we were going one on one cause his friend payed him 100 balls to play me and so I was like I give his friend the moneys worth and I hit his nuts three times from the oppsite corner with my Flatline.  I just hear this yelp and he walks off the field and his friend was laughing like crazy.

I suppose you guys go off and shoot terrorists in some WOODLAND area with your Camos.

Just because you wear camos doesnt make everyone else who doesnt Rich.

to tell you the truth i'd buy some dye pants or w/e if i had the money. i mean a paintball marker is more exoensive than those pants. And thas not being rich if you have a job. How much did those pants cost? 80-120? at 6 bucks an hour thas up to 20 hours of work which is half a week if you work AMAP. thas if they cost 120 and i've seen some for 60 so is not that much. if i had a job i;d be decked out in dye jerseys and stuff becuz they breathe really well and provdie nice padding.

um. actually i dont wear a cup. i dont like them their irritating.. i had to wear one when i played rugby as a team. didnt like it. plus i dont even own one but i usually just wear jeans . their comfy . um this one time though i was playing 2v1 .. and my friend sam shot me right between the legs. and this, is why i like jeans. since i was wearing my tight pair and i was on one leg the middle was stretched. so it didnt even hurt my pals =). it did break tho so i was out.. but i was so releived it didnt nail them.. woulda hurt like nothin else

Yes I wear a cup, though I have never bene hit there. My best friend does not, even though he gets hit there at least once a year (and one year he got hit twice in the same day by his brother ). Yes, it slows me down quite a bit, but I'm not taking over my friend's bad luck!

Edit, however, I do not use the normal jockstrap holder. I found a pair of what are essentially underwear with the cup holder in them and it feels much more comfortable than the old jock.

Not always. A bunkering move can result in bruised jewels.

I wouldn't even wear clothes if it wasn't for the fact that there are other people there.
