I have at least two or three friends who are really into the paintball game. I have tried it once albeit a lame one hahahaha. We were supplied with water pump guns only. It was a large area catered for their so called war games at a beach resort located at Rompin/Lanjut beach area.
That was my only exposure to it. The closest I have ever been near it is witnessing the people playing the game itself near my place of stay.
Gathered from my friends that this game is really expensive and you could spend a minimum of RM100 per game which also depends on how long you intend to play.
I would say that the game is still new in Malaysia and that it's too expensive to reach the mass.
For Germans, they better play the game fast as they may not be able to get their hands on those high adrenalin pressured guns in time to come. The German government is proposing that the paintball be banned in Germany.
Why? Reason - simulate killing on the grounds that they trivialise and encourage violence.
Recent shootings in Germany caused many innocents to be killed. The ease of obtaining guns / weapons has prompted such call for a ban that may even include paintball.
