(DL) – This article is the first in a series for beginner paintball players. Here we begin with the true first time paintball experience. We will begin with your first experience. Take what you learn here to your first game of paintball and return to read more when you know you have an interest in learning how to play paintball better.
Before we begin let me warn you. If you have not ever played paintball you are about to have the most memorable day of paintball in your paintball career. No future experience in the sport may ever be as fun as your first time at paintball.PAINTBALL IS NOT AN EXCLUSIVE CLUB
Paintball is not a complicated sport. I've always maintained, it's not the gun - it's the shooter. You are going to find out quick in a hurry, you are not out-gunned on the paintball field. The ability to shoot lies in the hands of anyone.
Tall, short, skinny, fat, young, old, male, female - no one can outrun a paintball. This should tell you that you are not going out on your first day to get trounced.
So many of us are intimidated by what we see before we play. Search Youtube and you'll find high-speed games, and well-equipped players talking in lingo that makes you feel like you could never belong. Don't expect to encounter these players on your first day of paintball. Stay with me as I ease you into a world that you will not only be excited to be a part of, but you will find you do belong.
