Is Paintball Dangerous?

As someone who has been organising paintballing trips for the last 15 years I was interested to read this article on the BBC:

Going paintballing has certainly never made me want to take part in a real gun battle.  After all:
(a) You realise just how easy is to get shot.
(b) If getting hit by a couple of paintballs hurts that much then what is a real bullet going to feel like!

Still, I was impressed with Spaced analogy and it’s nice to hear that Jim from Campaign Paintball is still doing it, even if his site did go really downhill once it got more popular.
