I'm going paintballing for the first time this weekend. All gear is supplied. For anyone that has done this before, what do you suggest I wear? Going to be about 80-85* this weekend and I know these little paintballs can leave a mark. Pants and sweatshirt or what? Help the novice please.

I've gone paintballing about 5 or 6 times in my life. Wear pants and long sleeves. Layer your clothing so that you can see what it feels like to get hit, and then start peeling off layers.
Getting hit in the arms/legs isn't a big deal, but if you get shot in the side, inner thigh/groin, or neck, it'll leave a nasty mark.
Skull shots will definitely leave a lump, so minimize the risk by wearing a hat (backwards so that it covers the back of your head).
Good luck... and always aim for their balls.

When people get excited or in a hurry, they shoot high. Aim low.
Wear a cup or put a wool sock down your pants. Not joking
If there's an opportuntiy at all to upgrade to a semi-automatic rifle, do it; otherwise, if you hold the trigger down and use the "pump" as your trigger, you can shoot much faster. Good luck.
Atlas is my new favorite B&G subscriber. It's been a long time since I've gone paintballing, but now I want to get out there after reading this thread. It's an adrenaline rush. I went with a sweatshirt over a T-shirt and got nailed on my forearm at close range. I had a multicolored welt for months. Layering is a good idea.

I'm not quite sure what they do over there at "B&J" but I'm going to stay over here on Blue & Gold. I'm not going to say your my least favorite staff member but I don't think we have a whole lot in common anymore. Good luck over there though.......you too Atlas.
I went once.. It was December.. In Minnesota.. I got hit in the neck.. I have never gone again.

Haha. What? You don't know about our other site? B&J is where the company makes its real money. Geez ... that was a nice typo, eh?
