Paintball? Why the heck are we discussing paintball on a gaming blog? Aren’t gamers under or over weight asthmatics who cannot do anything remotely considered exercise like walking up/down stairs?
Those are the usual questions I receive when I told people I wanted to discuss paintball on this blog. That gamer stereotype, while often true in the people I see, is a negative pigeonholing of people and isn’t always true. Many gamers that I know love paintball and FPS like Halo or Counter Strike. Think of paintball as life imitating art.
Several of my friends and I are gearing up for our first paintball outing. I dug out my paintball gear, cleaned it up, and made a shopping list. My paintball marker is a Kingman Spyder Sport semi-automatic (click below pic for closer look).
If you’re starting paintball as a casual player, like myself, I suggest reading the Atomic Paintball Reviews “Finding the Perfect Marker for Beginners” article.
