    Because there be scammers on this here internet, so we have a few rules in place to try to stop them. One of the new rules is that we ask for 20 constructive posts from each user before they are allowed classifieds access.

    Also, I tidied up your posts. If you have anything further to add to a post, you can just edit the one you created and add what you need. Rather than make 3 posts with one line in each.

    No sir, you are more than welcome here. Just chat to me a little on this thread, and you'll get your 20 in no time mate.

    Have you played paintball yourself?

    You are so kind and no I've not played myself it's my son that plays and I don't think he would take kindly to his mum playing it with him I don't know if I would dare he has come home with bruises all over from it ha. Do you think I should give it a try if I dare that is

    Go for it - however you'll have to decide for yourself if your realy up for it

    For your son it could go either way:
    embarrassment (but that's a parents job)
    Coolest mother in town - and he has a willing playing partner ready to travel

    Try paintball and you get the experience and find out what he gets from it, you may find yourself a regular or you find it's not for you
    You wont be the first female paintballer

    I blackmailed a friend into finally trying paintball with her son at a site open day (.50 calibre junior play)
    I knew it wouldn't be for her, but she can now say she tried

    It's not compulsory to get covered in bruises:
    Don't be the person who runs straight at everyone
    Wear loose fitting clothing to reduce impact
    Ask the site about padded body armour if your concerned

    If you are scared and hide at the back it will hurt
    If you get the adrenaline going and get involved, it will still hurt! But you realise its not much pain and it's only the impact that hurts, and it goes away
