All my friends and I play paintball because paintball lets us hunt each other in the woods with guns that don't kill us... Which is why we play 'any hit counts' as well, because we don't care about the "paintball" non "gun" culture, that says you have to get a break to have a "kill", but instead we enjoy the military aspect of paintball, you get hit, you are out. And gun hits count too. Sure we use hoppers, but, I've never heard a single person at my field refer to their gun as a "marker"...

First time I ever saw paintball it was in a national park in NC back in the early 80's when I was a kid. My friend and I were deep in the woods when we accidentally entered a part of the park that the military uses for training. We didn't realize it, until we were surrounded by military members pointing their paintball guns at us... We about pooped our pants...

One of them shot a tree near us to show us what they were doing, and I thought it was one of the coolest things I had ever seen. Fast forward 25 years and I was in my woods and remembered that, and thought... I want to play war with my friends... And Trails of Doom was born.

I use keywords all the time with my youtube videos, and it is one of the reasons I have so many views for just a little backyard field... or my content is good... bah, it must be the keywords!
