For me the draw to paintball was back as a teenager…just like many players today. We had a two friends of our family that rented Splat Masters at the local hardware store. They then proceeded to chase each other around the woods for the rest of the day…shooting a whole 100 rounds of paint between the two of them! At the tender age of 16 I was enthralled by the detailed accounts from the two of them. I was also amazed by perfect red welt raised by the impact of a paintball. Living in the middle of nowhere Eastern Washington, that was my first and last exposure to the sport until 1998.
