What the hell is paintball?

AirApache, I can only give a short explanation since I don't feel like sitting here and typing for an hour. Paintball is a game/sport played with guns called"markers" that are powered by a tank of CO2 or compressed air. On top of the markers there is a loader, sometimes called a hopper or a feeder that holds and feeds the paintballs. Some are electric. Gravity pulls the gellatin shelled "paintballs" with a water based mixture inside down. When you pull the trigger, a burst of expanding gas launches the paintball out of the gun at about 300 fps(feet per second). Some of the older markers, and there are some new, are pump action. Some pump guns only have 10 or 15 round loader(look at the top of Piney's photo) . Most guns use a 200 rd. Paintball is played in the woods, and on fields with man-made plywood, metal, or inflatable bunkers. There is also scenario play. I suggest you search on google and on google images, and go to this site.

If you have any more questions about this awesome game/sport(whatever you want to call it), PM me or Talio, because he looks like he knows a lot about the game/sport.Action Persuit Games

With Nerf, you can only get so much for your money (as far as stock weapons go). There is a point where investing more money into the weapons themselves will just get you more weapons, not more powerful and faster ones. That is the main reason why I am using Nerf for my Live Roleplaying game. You know exactly what each gun can do before you bring it onto the feild, so you dont get the unpleasant suprise of someone being able to fire 10+ darts at once, or 3 darts per second. It makes the game more dependant on skill.

Well, playing modded, that isn't intirely true. Someone's modding skills may contribute to their performance of firing 10 rounds at once. Just saying. However, in Nerf, even if someone's blaster overpowers yours, you can still win.

Thanks CTA, but there was quite a large amount of sarcasm there... (I was referring to the fact that this was Nerf forum and hopefully not getting a crapload of "THIS IS AN OFF TOPIC THREAD" replies.)
