Everyone always thinks they have enough...

Post by Admin on Sat Mar 07, 2015 1:59 pm

But you probably do not.

This training drill:


Led to this video:


2000 round per person for a 5-day training course. Some went through more than 3000.

These skills are perishable, so you need to train occasionally. Expect 2000 per year. If SHTF, all bets are off.

Never enough if you train properly.
There is my problem. Do not get to train enough.

Paintball is a great idea. We use to play every Sunday after work.
Great practice, great exercise, great fun.
Of course that was back when all they had were the green pistols.

yeah they have some pretty cool stuff now in the paint ball field land mines rocket launchers sniper rifles. I think its a great way to train if ever one of your members got a ar style paintball gun you guys could get some great foot work in and not waist real ammo. hell if the world was fair none of us would have to worry about ammo.

OK, so how much is ammo for paintball, what does this kit cost, is the paint water soluble?

I would like to train, even in my ao, but not if the paint doesn't wash off.

If it washes off, will it still do so on the next rain, even if it's a month off? I don't want to see colors all over my woods.

Check out Academy's website and put paintball in the search bar.
The paintballs we used to use were water based.

Great videos, and weirdly reminiscent of the British Army... we used to get in big trouble for leaving magazines around. Easy to do though, when the heat's up. (I remember shamefacedly from decades ago...)
