Something about sneaking around, ambushing, or just a flat out rush attacking opponents really gets the adrenaline pumping for some serious testosterone fun.
Best strategic moment - rushing closest opponent, demanding surrender rather than him taking a point blank shot, when out of ammo myself.
Thinking about getting my own gun. Any other fans here?

Paintball is fantastic fun - good for work days out (teambuilding etc, etc).
There´s nothing better than setting paint pellets at your co-workers to release some stress!
A cheaper alternative is to play with low power BB guns. Not quite the same effect as splattering someone with paint but it can be fun as well.
We have water balloon launchers which you mount on your boat and then fill balloons with water to launch at other boats. Big problem with that though as sea turtles think the dead balloons are jelly fish and they eat them. Not good at all! :(
There must be a way to do paintball down here but not have to wear all that stuff (passing out from heat prostration) or killing unsuspecting sea turtles. Give it some thought, maybe there's a new business venture in it for you. Think of a way to do it with a tropical theme! ;)
No kidding. 7 of us went through $120 of paintballs (2 cases) in 4 hours. I think I shot 1/3 of them though, I'm rather trigger-happy. heh
Overall, it wasn't too bad. $15 for gun rental and course/ref usage for however long you stay. The paintballs were $60 per case, and I heard you can get them online for $45 per case. But since the guys aren't making much, I'd rather support the local courses/group than have a hassle of ordering/S&H for minor savings.
Any suggestions on a good gun for a couple hundred bucks?
I use an Adrenalin Angels frame with custom sights, barrel, stock, 6 stage expansion chamber, harness and dual electonic trigger set. The 10 lbs CO2 tank and detachable 200 rounds mags can help a bit.

Hmm..... Need to think this one through a bit. The payload needs to withstand the launch but must explode on impact such that it sprays paintballs in a circle. The paintballs would need a soft exterior to explode on impact with whatever was within that circle. Or the payload is a collection of 12 paintballs shot like a mortar with high trajectory. Now we're talkin'.... ;)
It's about as much fun as you can have fully clothed though.
Two words of advice :
1) Operate in pairs and CHECK YOUR BACK. I've lost count of the "kills" I've made by hiding up, waiting for a lone tango to pass me, then creep out and bust a cap into his unsuspecting rear end :)
2) Carry about 2 or 3 times as much ammo as you think you need. When you run out, borrow some more off a dead man
