1. Firearms are illegal where Im at.
2. I swore never to use or own a firearm again when I left the military.
I dont worry about it contrary to popular belief the world isnt going to end anytime soon. I avoid conflict areas or placing myself in dangerous situations. If all else fails.. then Im confident with my skill in martial arts and can/will defend myself as necessary. Funny though havent had to since left stateside.. People in my part of the world busy with actually living life rather than worrying about the end of the world.

the really cheap paintballs still freeze, like the ones that come with the gun in "starter packs" at walmart.
altho you are correct most other balls do not freeze, in which case you buy jaw breakers or jumbo gobstoppers (the individualy wrapped jawbreakers and "atomic bombs" are just a hair bigger than a paintball and require soaking off the first layer of color).
but i assure you the green balls that come with the guns in any of the walmart markers freeze. i believe the brand is "Stryker". dunno if its the same everywhere else.
another round that worked well but takes some time to make is, cut open the paintball and empty the paint, then cut each half of the shell apart with a razor blade, and fill each half with chewing gum. then let the gum get hard, and super glue the 2 halves together.
you can easily mold the gum to the shape of each paintball-half. and it doesnt work as well with the cheaper guns that dont have a velocity adjustment.
if you have money, there's a company that makes paintballs filled with red pepper powder called "Deter-it", similar to the stuff in pepper spray.
