When guns are for sissies: Paintball in tanks

If you really want to make it in paintball, you're going to need a tank.

Shoot me!

In a controlled environment, shooting things can be kind of fun. After all, I had an awesome time a few weeks ago trying to learn the ropes of Big Buck Hunter Pro. (Emphasis on "trying.") Clay shooting is great, too. And the one time I went paintballing, I enjoyed it quite a bit despite the fact that I was quickly disqualified for accidentally shooting some kid in the ear.

I've got to say, though, that I was pretty surprised to read that British paintballers are adding tanks to the mix. Isn't running around in a vulnerable state part of the thrill of the game? Paintball in a tank would just seem like cheating. Besides, the use of the tanks comes at about $70/hour. If I were paintball-obsessed, I'd rather spend that kind of money on some sweet accessories.
