Cleaning after paintball

I love playing paintball but the one thing I despise is cleaning the day after. Cleaning the guns, lubing them and checking all the o-rings is usually a several hour process for me as I’ll tear the gun completely down. The other thing I guess I would despise if I had to do it was the clothes, luckily the wife takes care of that for me so it’s one less thing to deal with. At the end of the day I know the object is not to get hit and you should come home with no paint on you. In a perfect world that may happen, but usually not in mine as I’ll come home with some sort of paint on me. This outing’s color that I came home with was pink, yes you heard me I said pink. While I don’t mind the pink fill it’s usually in the middle grade paint which is usually a thicker fill and sometime tends to stain, but it’s easy to see who is hit. So as you’re setting back enjoying your Sunday, think of me as I’ve got my entire dining room table covered in paintball guns torn apart and getting ready for my next day of play.

Do you have any hobbies that require maintenance after the fact? How long does it normally take to complete and get ready for your next outing?
