Any chance I can leave my address for a paintball attack....I would like one coat of primer, followed by two coats of semi-gloss latex.....the color is seagrass.

lol Frank, paintballs feel almost like real bullets if the gun is calibrated incorrectly.

I hate it when people use paintball markers to do horrible acts. It just makes the sport look bad and the players look like delinquents. A lot of sites like http://www.airsplat.com/airsoft-info.htm give education pages and advise AGAINST ANYTHING LIKE THIS! But people like this make it so difficult to take away any misconception on the sport.

Yeah, you're right.......'almost' feels like except for the skin ,flesh and organ tearing part.
