Worst Injury Out In The Field What happened to you.

We now have changed how deep we go in the woods, so if we need to evac a injuried guy we can do so. We also make sure that when we play there is a LZ (landing Zone) to get a medivac chopper in if need be.

I had been playing for about a year. One of the guys had talked a female friend of his into playing and she agreed.
We had all arrived at the field around 8:30 am (this was in Middle Sackville NS, or was it Upper Sackville?) and thankfully it was looking to be a really nice day. The field owner and refs ran us through the safety briefing, pointing out the need for masks, how the mechanical safety on the BE nightmares worked and the garbage can where you discharged your marker before turning the safety on and leavening the field.
The morning went great. We broke for lunch and swapped stories and listened to what the only female player had to say. Up to that point she was having a blast. We finished eating, remade the teams and hit the field again after a reminder of goggle safety, and field boundaries.
We were into our second game of the afternoon. it was limited to 30 minutes but the horn went off after 15. We all returned to the safe zone, most of us thinking the game was won. We were wrong.
It seems she had been under fire and dove for cover. Somehow she landed on her right wrist. It wasn't swollen and she said it didn't hurt. There was no bruising. Between her and the refs they had decided that it was a sprain. When asked if she wanted to go to the hospital, she said no and just wanted to sit out for a bit and hope that she'd be ok to play another game later.
We finished playing around 5pm and headed home. The next day I called my friend to see how his friend was doing. That's when I learned she had broken it.
Thankfully she accepted it as part of the game. The following year she returned to play again.
That is not dead which can eternal lie,And with strange aeons even death may die.

im sorry but i got to crack on u for this,did u see the tree? lol
Im very sneaky. I could be behind you right now and you turn around. Im not there. Why? Because i zapped infront of you,and you dont know it. Then you turn back and im right behind you again. I keep zapping so much you think your crazy. Then i tell you, i just saved a bunch of money on my car insurance to get the sneakyness i bought. Then were playing paintball and I WAS in front of you shooting you till i zapped in back of you to shoot you.

Speaking of which I was at Skirmish USA one time. It was the last game of the day and to use up the last of your paint, we were playing you weren't out until you couldn't take the pain any more. Our team was in the castle (not the Tippmann Castle, one of the smaller ones, the Dye Castle maybe?). Somebody threw a smoke grenade and this guy charged us, he got lit up, but kept running with his head down. He was at a dead sprint when he ran right into a tree. Everybody stopped shooting him, and we yelled down to him, hey you ok. He just kinda moans then says "Yea, I'm ok. I can't move my arms or legs, but I'll be ok." He got up after a couple minutes, but not one of the brighter moves I've ever seen.

You gas up the marker, put on the gloves, strap on the mask, and walk onto the field.. it doesn't matter that you failed a test, that your girlfriend broke up with you last night, or that you got a ticket on the way there...your world is right for the next couple hours, this is your heaven on earth... live it... love it..
How the hell could you stop me? Why in the world would you try? I go hard forever that's just how I'm designed, that's just how I was built.
