Testosterone City: TBK Paintball REVIEW

Okay, I was nervous going in. I was a little taken back when I got hit (paintball to flesh!) for the first time, but as God as my witness, that was major fun!

And I am sad to see you sorry asses for leaving early. I didn't even get to shoot you! They ran out of balls but they got a new shipment when you guys left. So :p

It is 1 am and I just got home. And I am ready to conk out a happy man. I never knew sneaking around abandoned cars, running up against slimy walls and comparing wounds could be so much fun.

And the rest of you *cough Allie cough* better show up next time. Or else I'm coming to your house with my paintball gun and ambushing you leaving for work. Right Shawn?


Did any of you hate it? I thought I saw some disgruntled, sweaty faces. Or was it your war faces?

Note: I do not advocate violence... vicious, sublime, wonderful violence... hehe...

I had a great time but I was disappointed when they ran out of painballs. Especially because I weas so excited my first round that I used all 100 before the round had ended.
I only had two confirmed kills but I think that one of them might have been on my team (I was on the caution tape team). I also was so excited I had trouble adhearing to the one shot rule. My brother and I shot one kid about 6-8 times combined in the space of 2 seconds. I know he wasn't TBK because he was very small.
anyway, if anybody is going back I'd love to go again so please drop me an e-mail.

i think one of those disgruntled, sweaty faces was mine. my pissed expression came following my being shot twice by my teammate at point blank range after i had surrendered and stated that we were on the same team. OUCH! yes, i was pissed...can't help it...violence/competition brings out the "grrrrrrr" in me.

it was fun, though....shooting a gun is very empowering! i liked the first couple games we played much more than the attack/defend game. my only complaint is the face masks - they fogged up so easily!

so now i have two war wounds...one lovely welt on my back and another on my arm.

i might play again... maybe....

i do feel that i have something to prove as i don't think i made a single kill! yup, i sucked...as expected

I wonder how Headwinds would do??? I am so curious to see that.

Point blank? Ouch. Who shot you? Do you know them?

I killed 3-4 people. It was... magical.

Paintball: next two weeks maybe? The Monday after the one coming up possibly?

coward, moi? I went back the very next day right after work and played for a few hours (yesterday). It was empty except for one really nice commando hardcore father and his 13 year old kids. My friend and I played a bunch of games with them. We even got the whole place to ourselves to play a 1 on 1. My friend cheated and won. We had never allowed going upstairs but he went up during our 1 on 1. He shot me in the top of the head
. I now have a big welt on the top of my head.
so in summary, I am impatient but not a coward. I also love paintball!!.
Air-bag, you may have spawned a monster by organizing this trip

PS if any Tribers want to go drop me an e-mail, I'm going back next Tuesday with my brother. It was sooo empty on Tuesday.

i had a good time but i'd rather go on another night and pay the full price to not have to wait 2 hrs and have deal with 40+ pro-snipers/jackasses and whiney/cheating kids....like, i just shot you, i saw those 3 paintballs explode when they hit you in the gut...that means you're dead and you leave, not 'it's time to start shooting wildly and run back to cover'.

maybe we could go on another and get a group rate discount for real instead of the monday discount....or maybe we could go to paintball city which i liked better last time i was there because the field, while smaller, is layed out in a more exciting way. (i.e. you can move around without totally exposing yourself to the world)

but either way, i had a ton of fun and thanks for orgnaizing it alex!

i'm sure brandon would be a great killer! although, now that i think about it....i can't even picture him with a gun! he's too peaceful...


i don't think it was a tribe person that shot me...one of those other people. ah well.......

and congrats on your kills, sunny! for some reason i knew you'd take to paintball...it's so unlike your character that it fits. does that make sense?

I loved paintballing, but I wasn't prepared to wait after the bullets ran out for the next shipment.

And I also must voice my concern about the fogginess. I couldn't even see throughout the second half of that third round.

I got capped in the arm, leg, wrist and on the top of my head by Alex or one of his friends. A wicked time!!


Definitely something I'd like to do again.

Here's a coupon you can print from their site:
http://www.sgtsplatters.com/home/coupon.html

It entitles you and a guest to a "free" paintball session. I used it for me and my friend on Tuesday. We still had to pay for balls and some smaller fee.
Tuesday right after work was so much better, it was empty. As I said above, my friend and I got the whole field for just the two of us for one round. Usually there were 5-7 people total in there. You could move around and strategize.
I agree with Rosey, cheap night isn't worth it. I'm all over another day if anybody wants to go.
FYI - Wednesday's are the hardcore nights there. I want to avoid that at all costs. I don't need to be the only person with a rented gun in there.

word! I had this problem as well. If you plan on going paintballing a few times you might want to consider buying a face mask. For about $80 you can buy a double plated thermal mask that won't fog up on you.

actually...i think he'd be quite ready and willing to play if we got a few drinks into him first - a LOT of drinks, that is....alcohol gets the testosterone flowing nicely, eh brandon?

well i found some info on paintball city:

<font face="Verdana, Arial" size="2">
Admission into Paintball City is $30 per person, which gets you three hours of playtime, 100 paintballs, and protective gear. You have to be at least 10 years old to get in, and the recommended dress is long pants and a long-sleeved shirt; bring a change of clothes. The 20,000-square-foot playing field includes a two-storey building, catwalks, an abandoned car, a gravel floor and tire bunkers. Rounds of 100 paintballs cost $15. Check out Food Bank Weekdays, when a canned good pays for your admission and only the paintballs have to be paid for. Call ahead to reserve. </font>
my memory of it is that it was better illuminated inside, thus making the fogged visor issue less of a prob...but this was like 3 years ago. i'm not particularly for or against either place, i'd just like to go when there are fewer people crowding us out. i'll call to look into group discounts and stuff later in the day.

oh, and for all your paintballing questions check out this paintball message board i found (not related to the paintball city in tdot as far as i can see) www.paintballcity.com
