Outdoor Paintball

I wouldn't say that I'm an avid paintballer but I've got to say that it's fun to do once in a while. So once in a blue moon, sometimes once every few years I end up going paintballing. Over the past year I've gone a whole three times including yesterday. But yesterdays was probably the most entertaing and enjoyable from the times that I've gone. Mostly because it was outside and I've never been paintballing outdoors before. Let me tell you it's a totally different experience than in the dark slimy indoor places.

The place that I went to was called Flag Raiders and the damned thing started off at 8:30 in the morning. Our group was supposed to be there by then and I was the only one that was there on time (and I was hung over with the McD's threatening to rip me in two). But the place was packed and the people there were creeping me out; all sorts of people in camo gear with guns. The really scarry stuff was the guys that came totally decked out as if they were going to war. Thankfully they weren't playing with us (I asked).

Anyhow the day was fun, though the BBQ they served sucked ass since it was a bunch of hotdogs that you had to wait in line for, but other than that it was a lot of fun and it definitely gave some perspective on the whole war thing (especially in the forest game).

Wow I think this is the first time I've posted on a weekend in a long time (it's a novelty)
