The paintball protective gear would probably work with wax and you could use your own guns.  There are special cartridge cases that take a shotgun primer.  Handloading requires only components and hands. I'd fool around with distances and damage before I cared to take a hit.  Paintballs at close range are unpleasant.

 

Edit: I gave a rancher friend a box of wax 45 Colt that he occasionally uses to discourage rambunctious Bulls.  They are not insignificant.
