Paintball OR Painball

Paintball……a mixture of two words…PAIN and BALL…but please believe me when I say that the "T" in paintball is only there to mask the pain..oouch!

Paintball is a sport in which participants eliminate opponents from play by hitting them with paintballs (spherical gelatin capsules containing primarily of polyethylene glycol, other non-toxic and water-soluble substances, and vegetable dye) shot from a compressed gas powered gun/rifle normally termed as a "marker".

The game can be played indoor or outdoor but it is generally played at the later area here in BolehLand. Paintball was originally created in the 1950s for marking trees and also COWS…yes, cows ( feel any stupid"er"? ) but has since evolved into an international sport.

As in many sports, paintball is a game that emphasizes on “safety first” rule. Mandatory safety equipment are a must and all participants must undergo a safety briefing session and a signed injury waiver prior to play ( irrespective seasoned or non seasoned campaigner ).

Standard calibration for paintball markers will be in the region of around 280 feet per second OR 85.4 m/s OR 307 km/h OR 191 mph utilizing CO2 or compressed air as a medium of propellant....therefore a typical direct hit will result in leaving a splendid mark for about two weeks...its like a bluish outer circle with an inner black circle...ooouuch again nabeh! Can you imagine the pain if one has to take a hit between the legs? aiyooooyooyoo....aamaaaaa....

Paintball courses are aplenty in BolehLand...dunno why...why ar? Sadists or just love BDSM?

A game of Paintball will set one back about RM200 plus buckos as illustrated by the list below:
Marker Rental = RM35 to RM50 ( depending where you play )
Chest pad = RM15
Coverall = RM10
Paintball = about RM0.30 per pellet ( 100 pellets no rasa me )

So Painball anyone? I am always game for a game..kekekeke

2 every1 his/her OWN.......
