I hate how people judge paintball, paintball player, paintball techniques, etc., when they know nothing about it!!! My brother and I had an argument about paintball a minute ago and he thinks that all paintball player spray and pray, paintball players have no skill, paintball is a waste of time, and its stupid. He has never played paintball and probably never will because he is a bandwagon type of person and believes what everyone else does. So basically a lot of people hate paintball so he believes them too. One of the things that really ticks me off is the fact that he thinks paintball players shoot next to or on either side of bunkers for no reason because there is no one popping out of it at the time. Well I told him that is because that's what a back player does, shoot next to bunkers so they stay in the bunker while the front players move up. He said that is different and its called suppressive fire and he says that because he used to play airsoft and thought he was all tactical and commando. Then I asked him, then what is spraying and praying? He said its where you shoot at a bunker for no reason which I just explained to him that there is a reason for it. Then he says paintball players shoot at the tiniest sliver of person they see stick out of a bunker. Well wouldn't you shoot at someone if you saw even just a small part of them? I would. Its people like my brother who make paintball look bad. The truth is, most things people do in paintball have a reason behind them and people just don't want to hear it! My brother also make fun of me for practicing snake dives. I tell him "Well maybe if you put time into something you really cared about then you would practice for it too". He says paintball is a waste of time, not a sport, and there is no reason to practice for it! I just hate it!! People don't know the truth about paintball and don't want to hear the truth either!!!!
I feel better now . Have a great day.
