    In French, you never say "moi" before the other persons you are talking about.

    -> Mes amis et moi allons peut-être faire de l'escalade ou du paintball.

    no. it's more polite to say : mes amis et moi allons faire de l'escalade et jouer au paintball.

    or : avec mes amis, nous ... (your friends+you):)

    or you can also say : Je vais jouer au paintball avec mes amis.

    There is one you did not mention, and I would like to know if it is considered good usage: mes amis et moi, nous allons ... [I ask, because that is what I think I would say -- but I am far from error-free in French!]
