So I'm going paintballing soon and my main concern is my 'nads and how to protect them.


Any help or general paintballing tips are appreciated.

cup
/thread

Is it common practice in paintball to use a cup? Also, what clothing to do advise I wear, at least for protective reasons.

LOL you have a bigger chance of your mask becoming defective and a paintball going through it then you do of being shot in the ball sack. ive been paintballing for a long time and iven never gotten shot there ever.

a cup will make it worse btw, when it gets shot, it absorbest he impact and the cup will dig in around your balls, it will hurt more. again, its very unlikely you will get shot there.

Take it like a man!
The trousers provided are pretty baggy so that should protect.

Ive been paintballing quite a few times and have never worn a cup. Ive only met one kid who ever wore a cup, but he wasnt exactly normal.

As far as clothing, i always wore a green tshirt with some baggy pants and some fingerless gloves. Unless you guys are playing with frozen balls you really dont need any protection. Just make sure you dont care about ruining your clothes with paint stains and dirt.

Kick the person's ass of shoots at the waste down lol. Usually you get hit in the head, neck, chest and hands the most. I've only played a few times, but never got hit lower than my stomach.

Ive been paintballing twice. On the first time, I had a close call when I was shot in the groin muscle at 10 or so feet.

Second time, Straight at the nuts. From behind.
Do NOT look behind you.

you can use a cup, i havent in all my times paintballing, if anything wear compression shorts to at least minimize teh target zone

and wear pants and a long sleeve shirt (or shorts and a tee if its fairly nice and you arent a pvssy)


unless you really have an intolerance for pain i dont think any protective equipment cept a mask and maybe gloves are needed.

I'd rather not spend money on a cup if its not needed, which is why I was asking in the first place, <random-uncalled-for-insult>.

I'd recommend employing some small furry vermin to help you.

go naked or go home! take one in the sack like a man!!! AARRRRGGGHH!!!!!

No, actually I've never seen anyone take one there, and I never did the dozen or so times I've gone. I wouldn't worry about it....but if you are...maybe wear jeans. That and the coveralls should do the job, along with making you sweat a tonne.
#21
i agree with guy who said compression shorts, thats if your goin to be playing a lot. i do not recommend wearing boxers however. stick to briefs or boxer briefs

I used to play paintball a lot and I never saw a guy get shot in the balls. Though, it could happen and would be rather funny. If you're that worried about it, go to a sporting goods store and buy a cup.

Yeah

Used to be, I just remember this stuff, and it wasn't the rocks that won, it was the surprise of being attacked by one of their own.

on some guns like tippmanns they have iron sights like normal guns. other than that and other tactical guns you just kind of aim down the barrel and adjust as you shoot.

ok, so maybe it wasn't totally the rocks (although i do remember some rock based pwnage) but essentially either way you look at it, the might of the empire got trashed in those woods by the friends of mark hamill society and some bears .... not quite the evil empire everyone expected.

First of all

Speeds ball > Woods ball


imo

But anyways, what do you mean "What should I wear?".....its Paintball...not the armed forces . Only time I ever wished I wore protection was when I got shot in the ass with an automatic high velocity Angel by a pro my poor ass.

Yeah, sights are pretty pointless on paintball guns, their not to accurate.
#35
your pants will usually keep any direct impact from happening. There's pretty much a net of fabric protecting your genitals, unless you're wearing skin-tight shorts. I'd advise you to get some gloves, as your hands will usually get cold and greasy. Also get some dark or camouflaged clothing to better blend in.
#36
Dude, you're most likely not going to get hit there, and even if you do, it doesn't hurt too bad, believe me.

As for general tips:

-work with your team. If you go "commando" you're gonna end up going "noob who got killed in 2 seconds"

-try to find good cover

-always communicate with those around you

-constantly check to see the enemy's position

don't be afraid to risk yourself for your team's ultimate goal...it's a TEAM sport and getting hit does not hurt as bad as people say...plus you always feel badass charging up the field with 5 other guys killing everyone in sight But again, ONLY do it if it is in your team's best interest.

-talk with your team before the game. If you guys have even somewhat of a plan, you'll do loads better than if you mindlessly charge out there.

-always try to gain more ground...if you get caught retreating you're probably going to end up taking one in the back.

-when organizing a plan, take into account the equipment everyone has. If you need a guy to provide cover-fire the whole game, you're going to want the guy with a double-triggered gun and 5 pods instead of the 12 year-old kid with a rental gun.


That's all I can think of for now...Paintball is an incredibly fun game, I hope you enjoy yourself, if you've got any more questions just pm me.
