Today, me and my girlfriend went paintballing. I made sure we were on the same team, so I could protect her and be manly. The first time she got shot was by me, I shot her finger. It broke. FML

Well if OP had a speedball gun, it is quite easy to accidentally fire due to a quality speedball gun's extremely light trigger.

I doubt it was a speedball gun, considering it doesn't sound like the do this that much (rentals). Rental guns aren't as fragile because they are used by many people. I do call BS though, a paintball would not break a finger. It probably just bruised it. Anyone who has played paintball would know that

Op did say they were on the same team. That means they were really close together. At close range like two feet it probably would break a finger

Pray tell, how did you manage to pull that one off?

Haha...i've always wanted to go paintballing with my boyfriend, but from this, I'm kind of afraid now.

Damn see this is why i dont do paint ball

See? this is why people wont try paintball is because of stupid ass lies like this. You CANNOT break a bone from a paintball. Unless its like frozen and at point blank. Try it sometime and dont dwell on stupid lies that people like the OP post about paintball.

no, you "dont do paintball" because your a pussy.

Just thought I should add I didn't see the shooting, but I saw the finger afterwards at the hospital. It was dislocated. I heard it though, they kind of surprised each other.

you have to have your FPS cranked up way over field limit to break a finger...

maybe they weren't playing in a field maybe it was a pick up game and they decided to raise the FPS range

Airsoft is way more fun than paintball. YDI for paintballing.

Thats just about the most impossible story I've ever heard. The most she would get is a welt on her finger considering paintballs are basically paint and gelatin and made to break easly; unless you were shooting marbles or something...

To be honest I never heard of such incident before myself. But in term of physic theory it is still possible. Maybe you can try it by putting yr last finger right at the end of the barrel and pull the trigger. Tell me if it possible. :)

unless it's frozen at point blank u can't even break the pinky from a piantball I've been shot at point blank 2feet away with unfrozen paintball in the pinky all it did was welt up

I guess you don't look before you shoot.

#5: so then how come you can get deep bruises on other parts of your body. I think it's quite possible especially if it was point blank.

i've played paintball for years, i dont see how this is possible, you have to have your barrel right next to her finger and then be dumb enough to pull the trigger
