Having done both, paintball and shooting are as different as basketball and soccer are from each other - you still put a ball in the net, but gameplay is quite different. Besides the similarity of the paintball gun to a real gun, paintball has more in common with either of those ball sports than shooting on a practice range.  

Getting the person "out" and capturing a goal in the play field (almost like dodgeball) is not the same as a skill contest to get a bullseye (with a lethal weapon).


Also, paintball takes place in a field where people are supposed to be during play - and the opponents are targets - whereas at a shooting range... Targets are hay bales or cardboard, and people on the range face death by entering. 

Keeping paintball and shooting separate is a very very good idea.
