When you start to forget what what your saying when your..um..doing that..thing..with words and...screw it where's the...uh, thingy that you sit in and lay back when you pull the other whatchamagigit
When them damn kids have no clue what your talking about when you try to reminis about old tv shows
It's ok for something to hurt because that tells you it's still there.

If you have said "I remeber this one time..." more than 5 times during a game, then you are an Old Guy
If camo face paint is still in your gear bag "just in case" then you are an OG.
If you can strip your marker apart blindfolded and reassemble it (your probably shooting a Spyder) your an OG.
If you can identify the manufacturer by the taste of their paint, your defenitly an OG.
If PVC is a "perfectly good magazine extender" you are an OG.
I'm sure we can all come up with several more.

Just playing. I'm 16 and I feel old. Sometimes my back hurts really bad while I'm leaning out form behind bunkers, or my knees will give out in the middle of a sprint.
Actually my knees only gave out once, but that was because of heat exhaustion. I was sprinting from one bunker to another and my left knee gave out which in turn caused all my weight to shift literally onto nothing. So down I wentm face first into the only thing that would obviously be right there in front of my face. Yes that's right, stinging nettles. So down I go, face first into a stinging nettles patch. Keep in mind this was woodsball, not speedball.
Since most everybody on the field saw me flop onto the field, they all decided to open up and try lighting me up. The nettles were about a foot and a half tall, so it covered my head pretty well. I start crawling towards the nearest bunker while a hail of paintballs flies literally inches above my head. One clips the top of my head, but I decide to get to the bunker before checking it out. It turned out to be a bounce, but since I wore half finger gloves, my fingers were full of nettles that did just what their name implies. Sting. Bad.
Finally the game got called because of time, but that game was my last. I spent the rest of the time cleaning my gun, relaxing, and drinking plenty of water to replenish the fluid I had lost.
The moral of the story: Drink plenty of water.
P.S. Water improves your game even if you don't think you need it at the moment. You should always drink some water before and after a game.

and I have used the "derned kids....." routine already but mostly because of their attitudes, cheating and aggression over anything else.
Personally, I don't care if a 15 yr old is sporting a Cobra'd G7 and all the bells and whistles and I'm using a ZAP beetle...it's a game. You can (usually) select who you want to hang around...unlike tourney ball when it's....yeah, you know what I mean...
The group I hang with is very selective on who joins it. The Commander allows us to invite for a day but he decides who joins based upon the following formula:
1. Safety - Adheres to General and basic safety rules
2. Ethics - calls themselves out or calls paintcheck if in doubt
3. Performance - actually gets in the game...not that the rule the field but definately not the guy that hides and doesn't engage.
Most of the time, the invites are asked to return a few more times because it's after the first few days they 'loosen up' and will start to show their true nature (if they are chuckleheads putting on a show)...
"Political correctness is a doctrine, fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end."

Ive seen an old retired cop play at jk paintball fields in Oregon and he basically "sniped" (no ghillie, didnt move, could be seen easily, and... didnt move), and after the game he was walking hunched over, slowly like my grandfather, he looked 60 or someting like that. It was funny, but I couldnt laugh because I was in formation with some Marines.
