I know a couple of guys who participate in a paintball club. They practice seriously military-style tactics, taught to them by a member who is a former Special Forces major. Their training could very definitely be described as "paramilitary" but they have no ranks, the club has no military (or "paramilitary") structure, and their intent is nothing more than to have more realistic paintball battles.
