Getting shot with a paintball is often described as getting flicked with a wet towel. Many players are usually apprehensive about getting shot, but when your adrenaline starts pumping, sometimes you do not even feel a hit. A good course of action is to wear a long sleeved shirt, long pants and some type of gloves. These items, along with the protective mask/goggle system, will increase the barrier to your skin and decrease the effects of a hit.
Try Low Impact Paintball if you are really apprehensive.
