Saw this over at MCB...I'd never heard of it before, but it turns out paintball might be a bit older than we though...

But there's no paint... So it's just wax ball. Or fat ball. Ooh, I like that second one. "Let's go outside and play some
fatball!" Catchy. B) :P

IT IS ALL FAKE....you can't just go rewriting the history of paintball...that would be stupid.

Though those guns look wicked. I need to mod out that little Gremlin 1-shot marker to look like that awesome dueling pistol...

well I was thinking the Gremlin, since it's a breach loader. I don't have the heart to mod my 007, but if I can buy another one (the "bolt action" one before they made the pump for it would be preferred), then I guess there's nothing stopping me from only loading one ball....

It was designed by a Frenchman, which means it can be dropped really easily.
