    I've never heard marker, only gun.

    Paintball marker is a term that is usually only known by those who avidly play paintball, but it is technically the "politically correct" way to refer to the gun.

    Interesting! I guess which one you use depends on your audience then ...

    I agree with Aidan. "Marker" is a technical term for "gun", in the specific context of paintball. You should use "paintball gun", unless your readers are familiar with the jargon of the sport; then you can use "marker".

    Yeah! That's right... you can specify "paintball marker" if you're not familiarized with the topic. But if you check for references on wikipedia or other paintball specialized pages, you'll find the word "marker" alone because it is just obvious...

    Thanks for the comments! :)
