not sure which forum this should go in. Is it a sport? I have just been asked to join a paintball team. my Brother's Employers team. they are all really keen and seem to think that as a Soldier I will be good to have on the team. Will my military skills transfer to the paintball fields or am I in for some surprises? I have already been informed that head shots don't count as kills but if you get shot on the finger end you are dead - didn't get it but that's the rule. Something about safety apparantly. I'm pretty confident that I will be in better shape than the rest of the team fitness wise. I recently played squash with one of them and he had to leave the court to be sick halfway through. What should I expect. Will it be a laugh? These guys seem to take it pretty seriously. I must admit one of the reasons I am doing it is because the company pays fr a SAS smock for all the team members and i've wanted one for twelve years but been too tight to part with my pennies. I don't think these lads are walts before you all start. They all work for a printing company and see this as a sport. They don't think they are Special forces or anything but are quite competitive. We will be playing against a packaging manufacturing company.
