Don't know what a Atlatl is? Look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Atlatl

I was fitting the hose for the Q-loader onto my A-5 and I was playing with the hose and paintballs to make sure I cut the right length.

So I had a hose designed for paintballs to move high speed through, and it was about 2' long. I put 4 paintballs in it and then flung the hose, and much to my excitment THEY TOOK OFF! I was flinging paintballs across the backyard into the fence and they hit hard enough to break.
If cavemen played paintball, this is how they would have done it!

I have a couple of these hoses. I think a game would be up close, very brutal and aggressive.

Iv launched golf balls out of a short peice of PVC with a blocked end. I could easily fling it 50yards+ Tried it with paint but they were too light for the size of the pipe. Good idea though. Find out how fast you can get them.
