What Exactly Is The Game Of Paintball?

Jan 7, 2008
Paintballs are ball like capsules of gelatin containing polyethylene glycol and water soluble, non-toxic substances and dye. These basically are used in a game, paintball, in which participants out do the opposition by shooting with these paintballs from a powdered marker of compressed gas. These are commonly referred to as the paintball guns.

Paintballs are the brainchild of the Nelson Paint Company. It indeed was an invention that arose from the need to mark trees in the forests. Besides, these were also used for marking cows by cattlemen. Later, when a couple of friends used these paintballs as a survival game, it indeed turned to be the sport that we know as paintball today.

Since paintball uses paintball guns, certain safety precautions are an absolute must. However, when the rules are followed stringently, the probability of an accident is as low as 0.2 out of perhaps a thousand exposures.

The very first rule to be strictly observed is to wear the paintball helmet religiously, which is called the protective Google system. This is because, though according to the safety rules, the velocity of the balls should not be any greater than 300 feet every second, playing near beginners might cause fatal injuries. Besides this, the barrel stopping device is a must use. This ensures that even if the gun is accidentally fired, the stopping device checks paintball from getting fired. Players get eliminate when the paintball fired by the opponent break due to an impact and leave a mark of paint on them. A player can also ask for the opponent to surrender when he is within ten to fifteen feet distance before the player fires the paintball at him.

Paintball like every other game has its own set of unique accessories that set the game apart and add a new charm to it. The spyder paintball guns by Kingman Paintball are a brand name that needs no introduction to connoisseurs of the accessories and the players who are actively in to the game. As for that matter, they are nothing new to anyone who follows the game closely.

Spyder paintball guns are available in various models to suit both your requirement and your pocket. They not only are a must have accessory for the top and the want to be players because of the recoil capacity or the speed that they impart or the fact that it is tough to miss a target with them, but also because they look real cool as gadgets and are sure to turn heads and win you applause. And perhaps that very applause can give you the confidence that you require to win each game.

So, if you really are interested in paintball, then get geared up to get the coolest of accessories and turn the game really interested for you and the rest of the people- the players and the spectators. And perhaps the most interesting of the options is a spyder paintball gun which will set you apart from the rest on the field. Enjoy!
