Yes, we can all agree that war is bad. But wouldn't you rather have all this primal aggression released in a controlled environment, with humans hit with splatters of gelatinous paint rather than real bullets? Of course you would. And if you're ready to suit up and enjoy America's favorite and most intense fake-war simulation game, head on down to Time 2 Paintball in Artesia, where knowledgeable owner Tony will do his best to match you up with paintball equipment that best suits your level, ambitions and warrior spirit, be that an EGO 11, a Dye DM8 or an X7 Phenom. Tony gives a lifetime guarantee on certain products, which is great because parts do break if used extensively. He also repairs and rebuilds gear, sells his products at a low price and never steers newbies toward stuff they don't need. If you've ever secretly fantasized about shooting someone, paintball is the safe, harmless and legal way to do it — and this shop is where you suit up. 12236 South St., Artesia. (562) 809-2212.
