    Post The girls of AO...

    How many girls are registered AO members? I was just curious because my girlfriend wants to start playing and I have not played with many girls before.

    I'm a swedish bikini model.

    Don't quite fit into the "female" category though.

    At my last count...2

    Lizza and Sarah are the only *true* female AO members, but a bunch of guys had all their wives and girlfriends register to give them a better chance in that drawing a few weeks back.

    My reasoning? Most girls have no interest in actually playing the sport as a hobby. You always see a couple at the rec fields who want to try it out, but for the most part they don't get into it like guys. They're afraid to shoot, they run away, they are terrified of getting hit. I'm not trying to look like a jerk here, it's simply what I've observed over my past few years in paintball.

    My guess is, out of everyone who tries paintball, 15% of those people is female. About 10% of the females that try paintball actually gets into it, so about 1.5% of all paintball players are female -- leaving 98.5% to be male. It's a complete estimate, but it sounds accurate to me.

    I've seen 10% females in the sport on numerous websites, but experience doesn't quite back that up. I'd go for 5%, though.

    Then again, there are a few female regulars at the field I go to, including those from Fallen Angels, so hey...

    On average, I see one or two women every time I play a pickup game.

    I have yet to see a really good offense female player (then again, IMHO only about 1 in 10 male players play good offense), but it has been my experience that women players, even beginners, are tenacious defense players. They find the best defensive positions and they are fearless. Often the only way to get them out is to bunker them (I try to avoid that at all costs) or get a difficult shot on their hopper or barrel.

    More power to you ladies.

    HeyHey.. I play offence. I'm really short.. (well, almost 14 and about 5'3", short to everyone else out on the team) and real quick so I'm usually up front getting pulls or hangs.
    But, I am known at firelds for being able to play where ever someone puts me.

    Hmm let me take a shot in the dark. Flamebo and automagkid are real ladiesmen. I somehow think they don't have girlfriends and won't for a LONG LONG LONG LONG LONG LONG LONG LONG LONG time.

    My Girl plays and she loves it. And trust me she has never run away in a game. She is an MP in the army, she is good in a fight too. Her second time playing we were at this place that had a 10 ft rule and some guy kid shot her from about your screen to you..... she ran after him and hit him with her tank(it is a steel on not a carbon fiber)! She is awesome!

    Hehe, I just read Lizza's article. I guess next time I see a girl on the field, I'll have to bunker her real good to prove that I'm all for equal opportunity.

    Add Miscue to my list. He's a true ladiesman So now its


    Miscue
    Automagkid
    Flamebo


    Ladies if you see any of these men on the street beware of cheesy pick up lines. Best way to get rid of them is with a swift kick and a slap. I'm just joking

    Hi,

    I got my girlfriend in Paintball. She likes it. Uses a 98 and my Blazer and now my mag every so often. As for I3 Ug sorry nick he is not your known swede biniki model. He is more like the agent or stalker. You make the call. However nick is a nice guy though.

    Later,
    Alan

    Paintball cannot be that big. No one has really been able to sponsor a stock car or a race yet. (local people do not count in this case )

    nice article lizza. one note though i would think that a girl as yourself you say you are short would have an advantage over guys like me and others who are 6+ feet. but their is only one girl that is a regular at my field she is ok, not real good but she is their all the time so i'll give her credit.

    Never, ever count someone out because they're a girl. For example, the second last time I was at Sgt. Splatter's in Toronto, there were a collection of newbies and associated girlfriend's, when we got to the attack and defend scenario (Splatters rotates through scenario's when playing) there is only one reliable way to take the building, it's a 2 story L-shaped building on the back wall, the way to take it is to charge up the stairway to the second floor on the short end of the 'L', the only entrance that has a decent amount of cover, before you hit the stairs, this is easy to see, and the first couple of guys in get pasted usually, I go in about 1 minute into the game, get all the way up and in before getting pasted, but only take out a couple of the half-dozen people defending that door, so as I'm walking off, I see one of the only 2 g/f's who bothered to play go charging up there with a M98, and clear the entrance, getting almost to the corner of the 'L' before getting taken out. She was the only renter/newbie who even tried to get into the building in 2 games (one each side)

    I see a lot of guys posting that their ladies like to play. Now this is just a suggestion but why not get them posting on this thread and giving their two cents on women/girls and paintball? I think it would be interesting to hear their viewpoint on the game.

    I've seen more and more girls playing in just the last 3 or 4 months. There is a girl that plays at Hollow Buzzard in Tn that is real good. She will go toe to toe with the best of them!

    I got my girlfriend into it. She is gun ho now. She grabs my Alley Cat and goes off killing cockers and spyders like candy. I am scared to go against her for fear she will eliminate me. She has improved almost 150% since the first time she played and now she is psycho. It's all good though. No one expects her to jump out like rambo firing string of paint like it's free. So it is all good.
