What gun brand do you prefer?

Tippman. Solid reliable marker.
Forest or inflateable course?

Woods. Only.
Armor?

Poosies. ;)

I used to play backing the 90's. Loved it. I've been thinking about picking it back up. Great way to stay in shape, if you like to play hard.

I prefer airsoft to paint ball, but love both.

I played a couple times back in the day but I couldn't keep it going. I don't like hobbies/sports that are mostly about $; I don't have the money to blow $100 just for a BARREL. And the woods suck if you ask me. The movies might make it look cool, like you can jump out of a tree and surprise them or something, but what really happens is that the only way you can conceal yourself is to camp. Whoever is moving is at the disadvantage, which doesn't make for a good game.

I'd rather play in an arena with hallways and places to duck, escape, etc. And instead of just spraying the place up, I'd rather just play with pistols where your shots mean more so that strategy replaces who can spend the most on more powerful or accurate weapons.

If its a non objective game then yeah, camp. But I do a lot of CTF and its great. Storming a base under fire is an experience only war and paintball can give.

Armor?

just googles, sometimes face mask.

We got the chance to play in an old aluminum factory once. That was pretty intense. There was a large office wing like you mentioned. Along with large machinery, catwalks and an extensive basement.

We were able to use the site for about a year, some of the best games we ever had.

How can you compare airsoft to nerf?
I play with people who have 350 to 400 fps machine guns. Trust me, it hurts. Last time I played I got shot by a 400fps gas pistol and my arm was bleeding for a while.

I would play paint ball more if I had a gun and knew more people who preferred it to airsoft.

I prefer it to airsoft because it is much clearer if someone has been shot.

It depends what type of game you're playing. I personally don't like games where it's one shot and you're dead or something like that. That way I'll admit paintball is better. But I like just playing two teams no rules except if you surrender you join the other team, or are out of the game. Or free for all surrender.

Yeah, I like the raid stuff (not sure what it is actually called).

But one team is in a large barn (I typically do this at a vineyard), defending that location, and another starts outside in a field, and they try to get in and grab a flag or something (sometimes we use a file folder or briefcase).

They are fun because there is always 1 or 2 snipers (or wannabe snipers, lol) on the roof.

Another main difference is with bullet movement. The sniper in my photos shoots 350-400 fps and the bullet arcs up at long ranges. Its BS. While paintballs arc down at long ranges, making it so you can arc your shot at long distances. You can't arc your shot down...

Forts make the game awesome. There is a fort where I go with a guard tower, and all the "snipers" sit up there and pick people off. It's great.

I just noticed an indoor paintball facility in town. I'm inclined to try it, especially after this thread, but I have no time and no money. hmm.

Love paintball, I play with a Classic Automag 68, I prefer outdoor woods fields with some bunkers. Preferably scenario games. Armor, nope... just a mask camo pants and t-shirt or Jersey.

Jimmerson to visit Eagles camping Wednesday, stop holdout

DeSean Jackson's holdout does seem ending.NFL System stated which Jimmerson found its way to Philadelphia within On the overnight. That two-time Expert Sink wideout is predicted to help you report to Silver eagles camp Saturday, the entire Philadelphia Inquirer claimed Tuesday, quoting a resource close to the expert.
