Paintball Jungle

Splat! A direct hit. And you're out of the game.

On their first visit to the Paintball Jungle, Steve, Steve, Sean & Russ were given away by their rental equipment and gleefully taken advantage of.

One month and a few thousand bucks later, no one was going to spot them by their rentals. This time around I was the newbie, with the direct hits on my face mask to prove it.

Didja get hit? they would ask after each skirmish, to which I would reply, I don't think so. Made it through the day without a serious sting. But when I went for a shower after I got home, I spotted a golf-ball size black bruise on my side. The adrenaline must have been pumping so hard, that I never even felt the hit.
