      The Colorful Invention Of Paintball

      The Colorful Invention Of Paintball

      Did You Know That The First Paintball Match Was Inspired By A Bet?

      Paintball was invented in the good ol’ US of A by two men who wanted to settle an argument about whether a city man could outshoot an outdoorsman and hunter.

      A Match To Settle A Bet

      In 1981, a countryman and a city guy had an argument about whether the city man would survive in the woods against someone who had been hunting and fishing his entire life. They saw a paint gun in a catalogue and decided to settle their argument with a good old-fashioned duel – by shooting paint at each other! Ten other men joined in the first free-for-all paintball game.

      It Caught On As A Sport

      After the match (which was won by a forester) was reported in the media, it caught on as a sport that’s now played professionally and recreationally all around the world. Originally created to mark trees for logging, it makes sense that a forester would be most familiar with the paintball gun. It’s now gone on to become an internationally used piece of equipment!

      Paintball pellets can be painful, and the oil-based paint is tough to get out of clothes. That’s why most players use protective clothing, like Kolossus overalls, to play in.

      Attention, Sharp Shooters: 3 Paintball Facts You Won’t Believe

      Paintball is a game of a different breed. It’s rough, it’s fast, and it’s the most colorful way to shoot your friends in the chest. Here are some facts you might not have known about your favorite game:

      No Time to Dye

      Paintball dye not only leaves bright evidence of a day well spent, but it also might stain your lighter clothes for much longer than you’d like. Instead of spending your Saturday at the laundromat, protect your clothes with coveralls.

      Older Than You’d Think

      Did you know that the game of paintball was invented in the ‘70s by Daisy and Crosma – making it more than 50 years old? Although, back then it was a little different. Check out the next tip to see why.

      Get Down, Ya Filthy Animals

      Paintball guns were originally used by foresters to mark trees and animals from a distance thanks to their visibility and accuracy over longer distances.
