Did you know? How Semi-Automatic Paintball Guns Work!

This post sponsored by: Mayhem

Check out this cool infographic about how paintball guns work:how-semi-automatic-paintball-guns-work

Storytime: My husband and I and a few cousins went ‘paintballing’ (is this a real term?) years ago when we were all young parents – Here are the highlights from what I recall; We arrived, dressed in full-on camo, at their house to carpool – and a cousin, obviously ready to start a war, attacked us by launching a diaper bomb (luckily only ‘#1’) at us.

At the paintball site – we played a few rounds of ‘Capture the Flag’ – we were divided into two teams and the object was for your team to capture the other team’s flag. I honestly, never saw either flag, however I was the last one alive on my team – I consider this a win on my part!

Lucky for me, my husband, on the other team, was nice about ‘killing’ me. He snuck up behind me and decided to place his shot on the softest part of my body – my rear-end.

We had a great time! Have you ever been paintballing? Tell us your story in the comments below.
