You guys make me sick… The school shootings should not be marketing gag used by narrow minded dolts like you self.. You guys give paint ball a bad rep and for seriuos players like my self you guys are a huge reason that PB will have a hard time going into the pro sports arena!

You bite…

We have never seen “seriuos” players, we would like to see what they are like. As for Paint Ball going to the professional sports arena, I guess Columbine Paintball has made it! Columbine Paintball is a pro sports arena! We actually make a living off of paint ball. We’re pro.

So if this is real its pretty sick… if its a joke its also pretty sick. But I suppose it was inevitable for americans to do this. You really dont have a clue do you? No didnt think so.

“Experience what the innocent students and teachers lived while running for their lives, hunted and without weapons to defend themselves, not knowing when the Trench Coat Mafia will hit.” – harsh..

Im a fan of paintball but the blatent disrespect you show is amazing to me .. you should be closed down ( and given a good beating to boot)

SICKOS SICKOS SICKOS SICKOS SICKOS SICKOS SICKOS SICKOS SICKOS SICKOS SICKOS

Come give us a beating and close us down. We’ll be waiting with our paintball equipment to kick your ass!

what a waste you are .. to society.. .. if you actually had a link saying disclaimer then i could appreciate you giving people stick. Having a hidden one is hardly impressive, being that its hidden it would not count in a legal eye so youd probably be looking at some time in the county jail.. where hopefully youd be pummelled into small pieces.

What exactly are you chuffed about? What is funny about your site? or indeed your replies to peoples emails? I know americans are less intelligent than most.. but come on guys.

I praise you for your wonderful service, but I wonder if my praise e-mail will ever see the light of day, as I seem to have spelled every word right up to this point and my grammar is at least intelligible.

God bless this wonderful example of all that is great in America. I just wish Wyoming had anything else to offer to make me go there (Yellowstone doesn’t count), and I also wish you would open a similar facility in Virginia.

Now personally being a Canadian, and a rather evil canadian at that I think this site is MUCHAS FUCKING HILLARIOUS! For the first minute i saw this i was like YES! Where is this place, can i be the mafia? how many innocents can i shoot? Then i real ized it was a political parody and loved it even more.
Now i own a paintball store and as such i must say that i do not condone such random acts of violence, and sites like this that put down the sport of paintball. Unofficially however i think you guys did a great job.
People worry too much about the past, its better to focus on the present, so what some kids died, take the shooters out back & off them, clean up a bit and get back to your dull little insignificant lives. And 9/11 boo fucking hoo. Why did nt some engineer in Texas figure out that maybe a plane might one day lose control and crash into a building, how come they didnt plan for this sorta thing. Im sure it crossed their mind but when they thought of putting it down on paper something else c ame up, like anal raping a sheep & drinking watered down beer.
Im glad your giving the Americans the wake up call they need to understand that theyre the worlds little bully, and even bullies get picked on by the little guys once and awhile, a little pain is a small price to pay for the hell theyve created for the rest of the world.
Props to Columbine Paintball, and boo to the Nazi regime that is the USA!!!
Columbine and 9/11 are both cover ups and the media plainly lies to the people to control their mind to do the government’s bidding. The towers were in fact built to withstand an impact from a plane. That is why they used explosives to take down those towers and building 7. No building has ever crumbled from fire. The USA tax payers give their tax money to terrorists that kill their own US citizens.

Does this place truly exist? Obviously columbinepaintball has found a different side of paintball. This is identical to the scenario tournament type of paintball. I have played paintball for 6 years now, I tuly feel what columbinepaintball is doing for the sport of paintball is hurting it. Everyday players seeking to play professional paintball, like myself explain to the rest of the world how paintball is not like war, is not dangerous and truly is not about violence. This place you have created hurts OUR side of the sport. There is nothing wrong with what you have created in this sport. Down in Texas we hold scenario tournaments ( paintball events held by acting out specific events in our history such as WW 2 and Vietnam) For everyone out there that is clueless of paintball . Do some research before slamming Columbine  Paintball, check out www.paintballusa.com or www.tankspaintball.com these are two  very well respected paintball field in Houston, TX. paintball usa represents one side of paintball, the scenario side. Tanks paintball represents the fast paced tournament level side of paintball.
But to handle these peoples email by acting childish in response to their immaturity level, I dont feel is the best way to handle it. Obviously when this paintball field was created the thoughts of people responces must have been thought out. The only thing I see wrong in this is the way the owner , or person replying to the thoughts of others is the way they are responsding
We disagree, we have more and more paint ball players everyday and business is growing. We are helping the sport of paintball. That is our “responce”.

wow, you just dont fucking get it… i am a canadian and ashamed to be in any way assosiated with you. People suffered in the shooting and u sturn it into a fucking game. Whats the difference beetween this and ww2 or pearl harbor. I dont know mabey it could be the fact that these were fucking kids going to school and geting shot up. Those people died for their country and somewhat new teh risks of being part of the army. But in no way did these kids and teachers do anything to derserve this. Also the colombine shootings were not 50+ years back.
We “sturned” it into a business, not a game. We feel that people should move on and get over things and be able to honor such events, just like we do at Columbine Paintball.

You know what this makes me think of? That joke of a “game” in the desert where the guys go hunt naked pornstars. Who the hell makes a feild in Wyoming? Thats how people know this is a joke. Canadians aren’t stupid enough to start a paintball scenario like this in Wyoming, they’d be smart and put it somewhere that would attract more buisness, like California, or somewhere like that. But the entire idea of the recreation of Columbine would be the ultimate fetish for some demented scenario players (which scenario players are demented in their own way) and its also a clue to how demented and fucked up you people are. Quit giving paintball a bad name. It recieves enough hatred as it is… maybe ya’ll could have used airsoft guns or SOMETHING…
We have many group bookings of such scenario players that you mention.

I was reasearching the Columbine incident and I came across your site and found it to be totally horrific. I know you constantly respond to other e-mails with your “Well, people like it, so there!” Well, hey, some people like to murder, steal, rape, and whatnot. Does that make it right? Simply because people like doing it? Now, it’s not my place to criticize your business. You wanna make money off of a tragedy, hey, go ahead, Be inhumane. You’ll suffer the consequences eventually. However, I would never want to be involved in any project like this and for the 87% of Americans you claim to have (that’s over 10 million people, by the way), they also will suffer the consequences.
I’m sorry for you and go ahead, respond to this e-mail. Mention how wrong I am, make your sarcastic comments justifying what you do. Guess you can’t take criticism very well, huh?
We feel that you should begin to learn how to read and develop English comprehension. We said that 87% of our customers were American. We have no clue where you got your number of 10 million, but we guess that you did not do enough “reasearch”.

My question is. Well, my dear friend insists the site is fake. Which would make sense, but then again you’re not breaking any laws in the leas and the idea sounds sort of f un in a strange but relatively harmless manner. So my question is, is the whole thing bullshit, or do you really have a facility to host these things? If so, well hell if you’re still open in a few years think I migt want to check it out. The idea is ju st, interesting. Paintball in a classroom, not to mention I thought everyone got a bit too uppity about the whole thing. Life isn’t always pleasant, sometimes, nasty shit happens. Everyone acts like death (the one certain aspect of life, you will die) i s the most horrible thing. God forbid a person does the natural thing of dying, even if their old and it’s their time it’s still a tragedy for many, let alone if they go young or it’s sort of unpleasant. Funny, that reminds me of my friends cancer, I ho pe she ge


A shame its probably fake. It does sound like it’d be rather fun. Besides, it’s not like you’re recreating POW camps, or setting up firing squads so people can know what it was like to be a jewish statistic. Or one of the n azi’s that creating said statistics.

We are trying to make a fun paint ball arena. We are sorry, but paint ball does not show anyone how to blow up anybody or kill innocent people. You should play paint ball before belching out such idiotic statements. But I guess it’s O.K. though to invade Iraq and blow up and kill innocent people for no good reason other than to harvest oil that the U.S.A. doesn’t need. We are very pleasant people, otherwise we would not be in business.

I realize that your business is fake and the only reason I’m commenting on this is because you people are an assholes and you do not do anything except make fun of people. When you are being a smart-ass you should make sure you know what you are talking about before you state something personal and offensive. 
When you were commenting on Cindy’s comments you are historically inaccurate in associating Joseph Stalin’s “Holocaust” in Russia during the The Great Purge and the impact of Collectivization as being apart of World War II. Joseph Stalin and his destruction of his so called “traitors” and “political opponents” was in not in any way associated with World War II. The murder of millions of Russians and Ukrainians was in the time frame of 1932-1938. World War II did not start until 1939, with the invasion of Poland. You should do a little research before saying something stupid. The only argument that you give regarding World War II and Russia is the mistreatment of the soldiers in the Russian army during, and after the battle of Stalingrad in 1942, as well as the suicide squads that were used in killing off more of Stalin’s “political opponents”.
Also when you comment on [email protected]’s forum you ask with a great supercilious tone of writing “Who is nppl?” this shows only arrogance, because as a representative of the competitive paintball community, anyone who would either know anything about the sport of paintball or play the sport for a long period of time would know what the NPPL was, especially someone who would open a paintball field would know what the NPPL was.
It is for the reasons of your nonsensical attitude towards life, and the ability to offend others is nothing more than trifling and subnormal.

on the other hand, I think its atrocious that one of your teams is the innocent students, because some of those “innocent students” were modern-day martyrs (they died for their faith). But I guess it is a necessary step for educating people. So just think about it, overall, I approve of your course (not that you need my approval, or anyone’s for that matter).

Recently, I visited Ground Zero in Manhattan.  As I attempted to come to grips with the destruction, I was sickened by the people who swarmed around the site and attempted to sell merchandise; pictures, books, and other memorabilia that cashed in on the death and destruction caused by ruthless terorists.
Your business is just as wrong, if not worse.  I’m saddened knowing that people like you exist, with no morals, ethics, or values that allow you to see that some things are sacred.  You may think you are merely providing a service.  But that is just an excuse so that you can make money from the deaths of innocent children and adults.
In three weeks, I join the United States Air Force so that I can provide a true service for anyone in need.  I am disgusted that on your site you even mention our troops and their sacrifice.  Shame on you.

Subject: what the HELL is wrong with you


Not one person on this earth needs to relive an experience that involves the senseless killing of dozens of loved and dearly-missed children. To exploit such a tragic scene that temporarily paralyzed the American soul is not only unpatriotic, but downright offensive. I do not wish on anyone the pain that those families went through, and I am utterly appalled that anyone could be so heartless as to use this pain in order to turn a profit. I understand that you
are free to do so under your own rights, but this entire idea has no sense for what the American people struggled to overcome.
Oh yeah, “support our troops overseas”? “we love you USA”?
Shut the fuck up! You have no right to even attempt to use these phrases.
For one, if you “loved” the U.S., you would have enough decency and heart not to turn one of the most tragic and heart-numbing scenes in recent U.S. history into a cheap profit. You don’t love or respect the U.S. or it’s people, and saying that you do is the definition of hypocrisy.
Anyone who makes a cent off of this idea should be duct-taped to the goalpoasts of a hockey net and simultaneously tasered while both Jeremy Roenick and Scott Stevens repeatedly fire pucks over 95 mph at their craniums.

P.S.–> when I say eat a dick, I mean both “shame on you” and “go fuck

Subject: the business


Ok, I’m sure after opening up a business like this you have had numerous emails and comments in general of every shape and form. It would not surprise me at all that you found many Americans that would enjoy such a “fantasy setting”. I try desperately not to judge. With that being said, please understand my reason for writing this email. I just don’t understand why? I mean I know the practical reasons….I’m sure its a good money maker, but there are a lot of means to take you to that end. Some of them are legal, some are illegal. I applaud you on one end by choosing a means that is legal, but then you still should be faced with is it moral? I mean running a porno shop is legal too but it carries with it a stigma of sorts.

I think that may be the problem with your type of business. Yes, it’s legal..but it touches upon an issue that 1) Is very hurtful to many people around the world not to mention Americans. and 2) Almost glorifies the situation or at the very least sends a message that the situation isn’t all that serious. It saddens me to think that some kids are coming to your business and actually finding pleasure in being chased by “killers” or would want to “kill” someone themselves in a setting like this.

Now please understand that I do not view paintall as necesssarily bad. I also know that this isn’t much different from a bunch of guys playing in the woods shooting at one another. After all they are doing the same thing that was done in places like Vietnam and the likes. the killing was just as real and tragic there as in Columbine. The difference I feel though is that wars and the like are fought by grown men (at least in our country) for the most part. They have choices to make…some chose to dodge the draft, some chose to fight, some don’t voluntarily sign up anymore, some do it out of love for country. Again I am not saying which (if any) of these choices are right but what I am saying is they involved a moral decision to be made from someone that was able to make a moral decision.

The situation as it appears now is that you are telling kids that the whole thing is a game. That they can “experience” the whole horror of the situation. To that end perhaps you feel you are educating them? But I would ask then are they truly feeling the horror or the desperation of the situation? Should they even want to? Shouldn’t they realize that doing something like this doesn’t make the pain go away, and it doesn’t put them on equal grounds with the families in Columbine? I mean what’s the point?

Are thy going to go out to Columbine and put there arms around someone whose kid was shot and say “I understand…I was killed too”? The kids and adults that lost their lives had real guns pointed at them with real life and death situations thrust at them. Should we really cheapen that by making a buck?

Obviously these are just my opinions. If you wish to respond to them or delete them is for you to decide. I am not trying to stand on a soap box and belittle your choices, nor even imply that I make all the right decisions (God knows I have not). But on your homepage you mention something about supporting the troops and praying for them. Again that is a situation that has come about because people have chosen not to think before they acted. I’m not talking about the U.S.A necessarily. I fully support our efforts over there. The horror that some of them people face everyday is just like the horror that some highschool kids in Columbine faced for a few hours in one day. But then why are we trying to stop it over there and then trying to relive it over here? Playing paintball does help one prepare for real life situations like war, it can help in hiding, strategizing, recon, etc. But again we don’t have a draft anymore, so the people who are choosing to fight for our countries freedom, are choosing to do this based on an educated moral decision. The kids and adults that come to your business for the most part are doing so because of the fascination we all had while it was being broadcast on TV. They aren’t doing it because they are trying to bring some right in the world, or because they want to help out the victims in Columbine.

I didn’t write this email either with the thought that it would change your mind. Nor did I write it to talk down to you. When you mention “pray”, it tells me that you acknowledge a higher power. I would only hope that you pray a litle more about the message that you are sending to some people and then listen to what the Spirit tells you. After all we can read in the book of Romans, where Paul is addressing someone that has made an argument that because of free will and particular freedoms that everything is permissable.he starts off by saying “Everything is permissable…but not everything is beneficial….”. Your business is certainly permittable, but not necessarily beneficial.

Perhaps I’ve missed something?
I’m just one person in America who wants what I’m sure you want and that is to live happy and not hurt anybody. Like you I acknowledge God and I am told not to judge, but I am also instructed that when I see something that may not be honoring Him, I should bring it to the light. I hope you understand that my comments are made with no malice at all…just concern.

I thank you if you’ve made it all the way to here. And for letting me
express some concerns.

Sincerely,
J. B.

We are sorry to say that you should get ready, the draft is coming back, and this time will target people skilled in computers and languages. We do not acknowledge God, when we say “pray for our troops” it does not mean anything to us. What does mean something to us is that there are weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, no more dictatorship unless you consider American presence there, and yet American soldiers keep on dying when the job is done and when they should come back home.
