On the Ultimate Soldier Challenge on History Channel, teams were up against each other using simunition (simulated ammunition). They were wearing Save Phace masks and wearing Dye soft goods (slider shorts, forearm pads, etc.). Just thought it was pretty cool seeing paintball gear on mainstream TV.

Remember when history channel actually showed history?
And while I agree save phace masks aren't the greatest for paintball, they don't breathe well and are terrible for bounces, but when you have simunition flying, hard plastic is better than a pair of flexes, probably would rip through the rubber in those. It's my understanding If you get hit it the head with simunition it may or may not knock you out.

Protip. Buy a shovel. Dig and Pile REPEAT until desired effect is achieved. Builds upper body and character. Bitches love upper body and character.

While shit, they have stopped me from jamming my jaw into walls and piercing my lip.

I have been shot with simunition and I wore a save phace mask. Some of the guys were wearing Grillz and they did just as fine.


BTW simunition hurts 2 times as much as a paintball.

Simunition is nothing to fuck with. They had us wearing kevlars and face shield when we used them in Basic. Holy fuck knuckles did that hurt...
