I am part of the ww2 guys, and you would be hard pressed to find paintballers who take any ww2 impression half seriously, let alone respecting others who would. Also consider that airsofters call their own hits, and this is not usually a problem, while most of the times I have been paintballing I have watched people wiping it off, which is just the tip of the iceberg.

You would be amazed who doesn't call their hits.

Gotta agree. There's one person in our province who seems to think that since he is obese, he can take extra shots without dieing. Or so I'd assume. Nailed the bugger in the chest, in the gun and ACCIDENTALLY hit him in the goggles... he just kept playing.

(And for those of you local boys reading this: it's NOT Kip or Jody)

LOL I play paintball all the time still (under 18) and I’ve never had trouble with people not calling their shots. I just shoot them until they do because the club I play at sells paint at 60$ a case instead of the usual 80-120$. The reason I’ve had a better experience is the fact that I play at a club that is non profit and my friend and I help out whenever we can. Not to mention the average age there is 25-30 not 12-18

Well that extra fat probably make him not feel the hits...

Worst experience with paintballers I've had would be after a mil-sim, myself and two friends were just chillin' relaxin' all cool in the parking lot when some dickmouth from a paintball game that was the next day decided it'd be fun to throw a smoke grenade at us and scream, "WELCOME TO REAL GUNS."

Real paintball guns.

However we were talking to others who were attending that same game who seemed to be very interested in the stuff we had. I agree, paintballers on the whole don't exactly project an image of maturity, though thank god those guys are still a marginal demographic... I hope.

But yeah, they're two different games, and no one's better than the other. Though Airsoft is really my cup of tea.

Lol, ya no shit! At least we have a couple high school students around here on co-op with the AMEs who had the pleasure of cleaning out the plane. Unless you have a younger brother to clean your gear and clothes after paintball.............. you are S.O.L!

Rather reminds me of something I read in one of those kids dinosaur books years ago regarding the Bronosaurus, it had a small brain and because of it's size, it woud take a while for it to feel the pain of being bit in the tail due to distance the signal woudl take to reach the brain, so evolution developed a brain at the base of it's tail to ensure survival.................... maybe the obese guy's skin is so far away from his brain that he doesn't feel the hits? Maybe more brains need to develope in his body so they are close to the skin. Lol, I can't see evolution considering calling airsoft hits as 'survival'. Hahaha

And finally............Kip is obese? I thought he was just "big boned". Lol

http://www.cozmopaintball.com/store/...nn-a5-side.jpg

this is my A5, as I play milsim paintball:






so you see, its not all flashy jerseys and equipment, the milsim community is a growing one. its really pointless to sit on a computer and bash another way to play army, just do your thing.

this is my first post here by the way, and I chose this thread to introduce myself because I play milsim paintball.

The biggest thing I've noticed between the airsoft and paintball community in my area is the attitude... I find there's much less arrogance with airsoft. A good example of this is I was playing paintball with a couple of my friends at a local place, and out the blue some random jackoff walked up to me and told me; "My grandma could shoot faster than that."

I don't understand what the obsession with getting out as many shots as possible is...

please take more "glamor" shots as it looks when being used, with bug bull testicle hovering overtop and a chunky CO2 tank sticking out the end. Then tell me how cool paintball is.

Damn, there goes my first guess. BAH! ON WITH THE OWL HUNT!

You know one of the other big differences? Airsofters make "Airsoft vs Paintball" threads almost like clockwork!

After switching to airsoft, I went for a day of paintball over the summer. Once you're used to an AEG, the lack of accuracy in a marker is maddening. I couldn't even hit people crouching at a distance where quarters would have been at risk with my M16.

You need pure rate of fire just to hit anything it seems.
