Paintball is the fastest growing extreme sport in the USA. If you have love a great adrenaline rush, you really need to try paintball. After years of avoiding the game, they finally sucked me into the sport by getting me to shoot some video back in 2002.
When people find out I play paintball it usually generates my favorite question - "does it hurt?". Answer, not bad enough to make me stop playing! Sort of like tattoos, only the marks wash off (and the bruises fade).
We now operate a shop selling paintball markers and gear (also airsoft and tactical goodies, but more on that later) so my playing time has been severely reduced. Of course, the shop provides an opportunity to play with all of that cool gear we only dreamed about when we were just players. In the next few weeks I will be building a photo gallery around paintball, so check back. The first pictures should be up next week - we're visiting the big Paintball Expo West this weekend in Pomona, CA - with some of the cool goodies and cool paintball folks (lots of the pros) we encounter.
