Crossfire Paintball is an opportunity to shoot your friends, enemies, even people you don’t know, without the risk of injury or death. Crossfire allows you to join already established paintball games, or hold private games with your own party.

“I love to be able to run out there with friends, shoot people I don’t know, [and] shoot people I do know,” Daniel Jarvis said.

According to their website, Crossfire Paintball is an organization that hosts games of outdoor paintball in “beautiful forest arenas in South East Idaho.”  If needs be, they allow you to rent your own paintball equipment which includes the paintball gun, paintball loader, 100 paintball rounds, as well as paintball attire.

“We run games for people, organize the games, dress them up in army clothes and let them shoot each other,”  Gary Taylor, the owner of Crossfire Paintball said.

Crossfire is well known apart from other paintball companies. It has been around since 1995. They give everyone who plays with them all of the right protection to ensure that their are no injuries. They also have a genuine enjoyment for the game, many of the employees have been playing for years and plan to continue playing for many years to come.

“We really enjoy the game, we play it as well as work here, so it means a lot to us, and we just try to keep it safe and make sure everyone has fun,”  Taylor said.

Paintball is a very exciting activity. It requires you to outsmart the enemy, you have to be able to outrun, and sometimes it’s also fun to just shoot someone. It requires you to be very involved. You need to know what’s going on, or your team will lose.

“It’s like a game of chess with a bunch of other humans. You have to outthink ‘em. Video games are great, but sometimes it’s fun to hear your own heartbeat in your ears,”  Taylor said.
