Paintballs: The Mark of Logs and Losers
Learn more about your ammo with Groupon’s look into the history and anatomy of the paintball.
The first paintballs were created by the Nelson Paint Company in the mid-1960s, designed not for play combat, but rather to be used by loggers to mark hard-to-reach trees for felling or forestry projects. The .68-caliber grandfather of all paintballs contained an oil-based paint encased in a glass shell, and when it hit the body, it hurt—and it didn’t help that the earliest paintball armor consisted of a towel.
Modern paintballs have evolved significantly in design and safety since the ‘60s, thanks to the switch to nontoxic, biodegradable, food-grade fill. Instead of sporting welt-raising glass casings, the shells of present-day paintballs are designed to break open on contact. They’re made from gelatin capsules akin to those found in gelcap pills or bath oils. To prevent paintballs from going bad or jamming markers, they should be stored in a cool, dry, watertight place such as a cooler, as any contact with water will spoil the pellets.
