    I know they are not all like that though.
    The only time I participated in paintball was when I took a house clearing class.

    If your weapon is IWB and concealed, whats the problem? If you have a problem staying concealed during this activity thats a whole different discussion. As a carpenter I have carried often while bending and stretching around those who would be offended by a gun. How is this any different?

    Nope. Not usually. When we take our kids to the trampoline park I donít want it bouncing out and something happening. Thatís about all I do now.

    Agree. I would have to say I’d avoid carry in those recreational games.

    My kids played paintball with others in the neighborhood. Those little freaks would put the paint balls in the freezer before their "battles". In fact, it was rare you didn't see a container of paint balls in the freezer.

    Seeing that, reminded me of times when we got on our go carts together and had pine comb fights. If you were really sneaky, you'd get a green pine comb. They hurt like hell. Its amazing we didn't kill each other.

    Ah, to be young again.

    We had BB gun wars. Wear goggles, long sleeve shirts, and a hat. BB guns had pretty strong springs back in those days.
