I've thought about it, but i decided not to. Just like everyone else said, it would be uncomfortable and probably get in the way.

i got JT slider shorts and tested the foam "man-pad" in my backyard from about 5 feet away. it worked. but i couldnt move, so i took it out. sadly two days later i went and played and got bunkered and was shot in the, you guessed it, the nuts. worst pain ever, other than a throat shot of comparable distance.
working on a shego, need a star frame and board, i can trade a pm6.
also looking for pumps.

ive played games with and without, a lot easier to move without. And more bounces without.

while everyone's telling there ball shots...

i took my dad and older bro out to a local feild once a while back, we played rec ball for a warm up game cuz it was there first time ever. first game, off the break, we all got shot in the balls. my dad got three direct hits and was laying down behind some tires. my bro only got one but he still hates paintball. all our shots bounced though.

I really would like to but it restricts movement too much...I just always make sure I keep a trampoline set up so I have my pants stretched over my area, therefore a paintball hits the trampoline and bounces or breaks on it, and doesn't crush my boys...But I also have to be careful to not expose the lower portion of that area because there is no way to protect whats hanging really so I just basically always make sure my nuts are not exposed to being shot lol...

I wear a cup, cuz for some reason every time i play i get shot in the nutz, and ussually its by one of my friends bunkering me so, its more than one "pop". BTW, if you get the slider shorts from baseball companies they come with a pocket for the cup makin it easier to run.

I don't wear one but then again I've never taken a shot to the nuts. If I felt like I really needed to wear one I would probably just get a soft cup because it adds good enough protection to absorb the shot and probably make it bounce anyways. I don't think it will do much damage between my pants and a soft cup, easier to run with too.

Nope, I dont.
I've been lucky enough to not get shot there yet.
Maybe cause I play snake, so that area is fairly covered most of the time

Same story here. It's not an issue of whether your a man or not. just how much you value the idea of starting a family.

lol, You might think I am crazy but I hated wearing a cup so much I couldnt even wear one in baseball let alone paintball. It is madly uncomfitable and my groin muscles just get in the way and rub. it just hurts and kills mobility.
