For those few short minutes nothing else matters.
Whether you playing in a tournament or as a hobby, paintballing is a very fun sport. It is growing and becoming more popular every year. There are professional paintball teams that play in a forest for an entire day.
Before you shoot your first paintball you need to take into consideration the type of clothing you wear to paintball. A general rule of thumb is the more padding the less bruises. If you are playing in a wooded area, fatigues are an obvious choice, but playing indoors, a couple of shirts and a pair of jeans work very well.

The game was initially developed in May 1981 in New Hampshire by Hayes Noel, a Wall Street stock trader, and Charles Gaines, an outdoorsman and writer. A debate arose between them about whether a city-dweller had the instinct to survive in the woods against a man who had spent his youth hunting, fishing, and building cabins. The two men chanced upon an advertisement for a paint gun in a farm catalogue and were inspired to use it to settle their argument with 10 other men all in individual competition, eventually creating the sport of paintball.
