Well, it can't be said enough. Have fun and play honest. Don't worry about it hurting, by the time you engage the other team, you're going to be ramped up on adrenaline and may not even notice when you get hit. Some other suggestions are as follows:
Watch the extremities - having an elbow or a foot exposed may provide just enough of a target for the opposing player to eliminate you. By the same token, watch for those who expose theirs.
Beware of hopper hits - keep in mind the height of your hopper, it does no good to snuggle up to the bunker only to be shot out because your hopper was showing.
Don't get mad, or yell, or throw things or anything like that. Speaking as someone who has significant anger management issues, I play paintball to relax, none of that stuff has a place on or off the field.
Learn from your mistakes - Don't worry, you will get shot out. While you're walking, turn and look back downfield (if you can, don't interrupt the game) see how the opposing player eliminated you. Also, while waiting for the next game, think about how you were eliminated the last game, then make changes based on that.
Take food, or money for food, but eat lightly, no sense weighing yourself down with 6 slices of pizza and still trying to haul your ass around the field.

I like to compare the more painful shots to being snapped with a rubber band. They sting, but nothing to really cry about - IF you actually feel them.

Where are you guys playing? I notice you're from OKC....

The first time i was shot i got hit in the face, and saw the ball shoot me.

that didnt hurt, at all. make sure u wear your goggles. The hard part was walking back to the staging area so I could get the paint off and see where i was going!

I guess got shot in the bicept this weekend. I didn't feel it at the time and I don't think it even broke because I don't remember any paint there but wow did it turn purple. Way more than I usually bruise.

It's no biggie. Every one gets shot at some point. Just play fair and with honor. It's a much better way to roll.

got shot in the throat a few games after i got a bounce off this guy's crotch! karma? but honestly, after the first few times you play, you get used to it. the adrenaline kicks in, and half the time you dont even feel it! i've been out of the game for about 3 years, so the first time i got hit again, it hurt!
