It was at a birthday party, about seven years ago, that Austin Flaherty discovered paintball.

"I was scared, to be honest," said the 21-year-old about his experience. "Like every new player, I was scared about getting hit."

The Halifax resident didn't last long. He was killed about five minutes into his first game. It literally happened with a bang.
