I normally get scars from paintball hits, though where I play its 250fps in a small indoor arena.

I still have a deep brown mark from when I went over a month ago.

I've got a scar (kind of purplish) on the right side of my stomach because of a really close hit.  The guy was right on me when my gun broke.  He snuck around behind my guys and I backed out because my gun wasn't working (stupid spyders ) and he didn't see me and visa versa until we were really close.  I bled like crazy, but the chicks loved it.

were u play is also a way to decide what "armor" you should wear.Front players need to have protection but not to much to interfere with running and sliding.if your a back player that tries to shoot long range you dont need nothin but a tee shirt.It really depends on how much of a man you are.         &n bsp;         One of my friends wears 2 jakets when he plays and he just sits in the back and waists paint shootin with his eyes closed.

i wear a really thin knock off jerzey and a long sleeve shirt, or short sleeve, depending on what the weather is,

Then i wear reversable shorts(thicker) and camo pants, which are pretty thin

and if its colder out, i might wear high socks, from baseball

I just wear a jersey and some normal pants.

It's too hot for anything else on most occasions.

I would advise a nice pair of gloves(paintball ones)and something to cover the top of ur head(ie hat, skull cap, etc) .For the woods like someone else said a set of BDU's but its all on ur preferance.... Like with me i will wear my Speedball jersey into the woods some times because it is a bright color and people kind of focus on me. While other times i break out the camo. If u play speed ball i would say buy a jersey some have a lil extra pading on them but get it a size too big and wear a tshirt under them. Also a Pair of sliding shorts and like a pair of loose pants. Nothing that is gonna restrict your movement. BTW i wear a cup first time i ever got shot was right to the marble sack........ u just have to get used to wearing them i dont too much anymore because i am normally behind a nice lil inflated bunker.....

Well thats all for now if i think of anyhting else i will add later

Shot in the finger from four feet away. Lasted 2 weeks. I wear a long
sleeved sweater, jeans, and gloves usually and can't forget the cup. I got hit
there three months ago and don't ever want to again.

Edit- If you don't want to hurt at all wear a life jacket. I have seen many
people wear them at the field.
