People clicking "YDI" clearly have never been mercilessly assaulted by a barrage of paintballs. For some reason, when it happens, your brain neglects to tell your legs to run, and all you can do is helplessly crouch and throw your hands defensively in front of your face while you scream, "STAAAAAAAAAHP!!!!!"

47- This is true. The very first time I played, I wasn't wearing enough protection, and REALLY regretted it. When I played a few years later with my guy friends, I had on all the protective gear, and felt fearless. Needless to say, the 2nd time around I was much more successful.

They really only hurt if it's your first time playing (which I suspect may be the case for OP). I typically have a lowish pain tolerance, but whenever I play, I usually am just wearing the mask, a t-shirt, and my paintball pants (which are a bit thicker for sliding purposes). I've been bunkered/shot point blank on the top of the head/my sides/chest/etc. and it doesn't really hurt that bad. But I've been at it for a few years, so my whole story might very well be invalid in this case.

47 - I once made the mistake of "killing" two instructors playing OpFor (bad guys) during a paintball training exercise. The remaining three unleashed fully automatic paint hell upon me. I can safely say, even in military grade body armor and a Kevlar helmet, it still fucking hurts. FYL.

After playing for so long, I stopped caring about it. Being shot so many times for so many years, you gain leather skin.

Running away doesn't seem any manlier, though. Best to just take it like a man and have her take care of your wounds when you get home. ;)

Running away helps, it also helps to shoot back. And if it she shot at a defenseless you, you can still shoot back after she runs out of ammo. All's fair in love and paintball war.

Being hit with paintballs point-blank like that hurts like a bitch. I don't blame you for screaming - I would've too.

Definitely, people are forgetting it leaves welts on your skin thru direct contact. >_< Got shot by one on the arm one night because some douches didn't want me to interlock arms with my boyfriend.

63- with regards to the welts, I met this one guy who was big into tourny paintball, and his left side of his chest was all scarred from being shot. Often times it can break the skin at close range.

It also helps us do things we don't like/want doing-fix the garbage disposal, change the oil in our car, parallel parking, etc.

I use to play in tournaments. I was the only girl on the team. Often they'd pick off my team mates thinking I would be an easy out. We won quite a few rounds that way.

It blows my mind that people can't parallel park! I made my boyfriend try it and he ended up with his front wheel over the curb. Needless to say, I'm the desginated parallel parker in our relationship.

Hey guys don't want to shoot there girls so he was just being nice and just so you know most guys dot by that I don't know why I'm doing stuff

Bs. My husband shot me plenty. Ever get hit in the nipple with a flat line barrel? Talk about pain. As far as paintball, never run and never surrender. Be ready to unload on whoever comes near you.

10- Agreed! My guy friends love girls who can hold their own in games like Paintball (once they get over getting their asses kicked, that is).
