Any chump with a few hundred bucks can buy a paintball gun and shoot at stuff. By that same token, any chump could go out an buy skis for a few hundred bucks and ski, but theres a difference; it takes years of intense practice and training to become an Olympic level athlete, where as a few lucky shots with a paintball gun and you win a medal? I don't think it would work out. Its just not at the caliber of sports that the Olympics include...
