That’s kind of what I was thinking. I know that (as I said in the post) it is after all, only a game, and that people behave differently for obvious reasons. I truly have no delusions that it will feel the same, trust me on that one. The takeaway for me here was that the teamwork I learned and a couple of other skills might be applicable… that’s what I was hoping for.
And trust me I know my G4 paintball gun doesn’t shoot like my 5.56mm mini 14. I am working hard to get better at real shooting with it.
Guys you’ve been a huge help, thank you for the responses!
