Paintball markers evolved from the gas-powered guns used during the 1970s for other purposes, such as those used by forestry groups to mark trees and trails or by farmers to mark cattle. The guns had to be redesigned to regulate the power and speed for the safety of Paintball. The game of Paintball naturally evolved as the users of the marking guns started horsing around and aimed the guns and markers at one another. A milestone in the history of Paintball occurred in 1981 when twelve friends played a version of "Capture the Flag" using the tree-marking guns. The twelve friends decided to buy into a tree-marking gun manufacturer called Nelson and started promoting and selling the guns to the public for use with the new recreational sport. In 1982, the first Paintball field was opened in Rochester, New York.
Basically four friends thought that taking paint markers and using them to play capture the flag would be extremely fun and so the first paintball game was played!
