Hmm, I played paintball a few times... Spendy sport, that... Can't afford it, really.
But it was a lot of fun.
There was a rule that if you yelled "SURRENDER!" the other person could surrender without actually getting shot... Well I get juiced up on adrenalin so bad, last time I played, a Red snuck up behind me, about 6 feet away and yelled "SURRENDER!" and I turned, saw a Red, and opened fire. We "killed" each other, and both of us came away with several nice welts. Luckily he was a good sport about it and we both had a good laugh after the game.
I had almost the same experince, except that the term "surrender" wasn't included in the game!
The game took place at an abandoned farm, and while sneaking around and old wagon parked in the yard, I suddenly came face to face with my opponent at a 4 yard distance! We were both caught by surprise and fired one shot instinctively. I was shot in the neck, making me gasp for breath while I hit him at the side of his ear, drawing blood. We were both out of the game, but had much fun of the incident.
The funniest incident I remember was in a game of "capture the flag". Or flaghill was under attack, but both we and the attackers had pinned each other down where neither part could make a move. This went on for a while when I suddenly ran out of ammunition. "Hell to that I thought", threw my gun to my teammate and started running...in the opposite direction of the battle! Actually I made a full circle, avoiding the entire battlefield and managed to find the opponents flag left unprotected. I grapped the flag and ran for my homebase but made a small error in navigation and landed in the middle of the battlefield! I was discovered immediately, and instead of turning back unarmed, I went into full throttle, running through the field towards our hill! I swear I head bullets zipping like mosquitos all around me as every oponent came out of hiding to get a clear shot at poor me! At the same time my teammembers emerged from the hidingspots to bodily protect me while the gunned down the enemy! I actually entered the flagzone flying, with the enemy flag, unscathered and totally out of breath!
I tried the same stunt a few hours later in another game, but was shot about 50 yards before I one again was in my own zone with their flag...
