Paintball is excellent fun. How stoked was I when they decided to build a skirmish paintball center about 10 minutes down the highway from me when I was at school! It can be dangerous though...I once knocked a girl out and gave her concussion.
Rifle whip!!! No, not really.
I was running as fast as I could with paintballs ****zing around my shoulders from two guys who were chasing me. Good thing they were running too or they would have got me for sure. I saw this little log fence thing that was about waist height and dived over it. As I sailed through the air over the log wall I realised that it had been hollowed out on the other side to a depth of about 5 and a half feet. I landed shoulder first (attempted aikido style roll...ukemi I think it's called) on the head of a girl who had been crouching at the bottom of the wall, facing the other way.
My 98 kilos hitting her by surprise square on the back of the head knocked her clean out. I managed to knock the wind out of myself and somehow get a mouthful of dirt, even through the mask. And to add insult to injury, she was on my team. We stopped the game and sent her off to the hospital where they told her that she had concussion.
But paintball still rocks. Lesson for today:
Look before you leap. Literally.
In combat you sink to the level of your training. You do not rise to the occasion
