Paintball Roadshow, Kuching, Sarawak

Paintball? I was wondering what paintball is about until I had the chance to witness the game itself. They had this roadshow and demo in Kuching. Got the chance to interview the marketeers.

Me : So, what game is this?
Guy : A shooting game.

Me : Shoot with what?
Guy : With this. A Rubber bullet or a paint bullet.

Me : I see. Are those shirts for paintball? (pointing at shirts hanging on the the canvas)
Guy : Yes, but you can still wear your own shirts, preferably long sleeves and thick.

(Conversation cut short, in case readers will doze off /fall asleep).

The ? to test the paintball game.

To keep bullets.

The guns.

The booth.

Well...no further comment, as I am not an expert in this.

ok..just a little bit 'correction' to some terms about paintball:

1 - the equipment that we used to shoot the paintballs are called 'markers' not guns because once upon a time, long ago, in a land far away... the first paintball marker was made. It was invented for the logging & agricultural industry. They invented a paintball marker to shoot paintballs with real paint at trees to mark the trees they wanted to cut down (or save, I don't know which) or mark their livestock like cows. The "gun" was used to "mark" trees, so it was called a "marker". Guns on the other hand are used to kill things. Paintball markers are intended to mark the people eliminated from the game. A paintball marker is not used to kill anything.

2 - the proper term for 'bullet' is 'pallets' or 'paintballs'. The ones we used in the game was made with a gelatine shell filled with water based food colouring (washable and non toxic if the paint goes into your mouth thru the face mask). Paintballs that scattered on the ground is no longer re-useable because its sensitive when exposed to open air (after a long time), heat, or contact with sand, dirt or water.

3- in general, paintball is a shooting game..that offers more - team building, skills, leadership and more..and we are trying to spread the awareness to the public that paintball is more than just 'a shooting game' but the benefits from it.

4 - The cylinder shaped container thingy that is used to put the pallets in it were called 'pod', and the straps where the pods were placed is called 'harness'.
