i was pretty big into paintball like a year ago.
Wasnt really sponsored but i had like a local team and all. I had a WGP vertical feed auto ****er with an halo tsa loader. I also had this sick barrel but i forgot what it was called. I had nitro too. The stuff isnt cheap but now i have no time any more to play so i let my brother borrow it while i am away at boarding school

i havent been able to play that much anymore either. this whole full-time job right out of high school thing sucks. this is my first saturday/sunday off in about 6 months. my first tournament in like 10. first time ive had to pay for all of it myself. figured id get a couple of times in before it got to cold and they close all of the fields down

I played a couple of years ago... We had a four vs four tournament around here that I participated in with a few friends... We did pretty well actually...

All I got is an old Spyder Victor with standard feeder and barrell but that cheap thing served me well for a long time... Paint was a pain in the ass to buy and I haven't played in over a year now...

Yeah, it's fun but with anything competitively that I have done... Gaming, fishing, paintball, white water racing... Unless you are the best of the best at that particular event... You almost never make a profit... it's a lot like gambling... But hey if you like to do it enough than for some people the money is worth it.

when u get hit 5 or 6 times getting bunkered it doesnt feel worth it but when u get that check and the free prizes OMG it makes me want to do it forever.

walmart doesnt pay much so this is a nice way to pick up a few bucks. but if we finish out of the money i dont see myself doing another tournament till next summer

Oh, I love paintball. Is my second favorite thing after getting hit in a good game of football( i'm no masochist btw, I just like doing this stuff through pain lol). I would love to play more but equipment is kinda pricy, but when I do play I enjoy every second of it

omg. that tournament had to have been the toughest ive ever had to do. i had never done a 2 vs 2 tournament. so much more teamwork you would think with jus one other person. we ended up in third place which was a lot better than i thought we would do. if i wasnt so rusty (we got off to a slow start had to play from the losers bracket), i think we could of won

Played at Joliet a couple of years ago (took my son and his friends)...on the first game they split us up into two teams. One side (mine) ended up with a bunch of army vets and the other side was all the quick youngsters with all the "cool" gear.
I kid you not..I never got a shot off...the whole game lasted about 3 minutes...we all stood around thinking there HAD to be some of their players left!!! The kids were good-natured about it and started asking questions about strategy and maneuvering ....AND they made sure that the teams were even-split the rest of the day.
I go about twice a year with my son and his friends...great exercise and alot of fun.

i remember one time my dad came with me to the field i usually play on, he brought all of his old marine buddys with him and i had my team with me. the week before we played out in the woods and got a little ****y because he was doing so well (some reason i do horrible in the woods). well he said he could handle me and my team (i believe his exact words were "anyplace i could spit the paintballs at you and still win"). he had never seen me on a X-Ball field. so we played his team 5 on 5 first to 7. 15 minutes later all 5 of these marine mocho man are sitting on a bench all welted up while we are off in another corner laughing to death. i think only one of us got hit all match.

I actually have had dinner with & played indoor soccer with the owners of smart parts. They are in western PA. Great guys. Amazing products & manufacturing facility. I also scrimmaged with some of the All-Americans, the team they were on. They were world champs several times. You can't go wrong with a Smart Parts product.

My kid and his friends would smoke us at speedball...but they dont have a prayer in the woods...I think that is because we have been trained to "not take chances"...and speedball is all about "controlled" aggressivness

I love big games in the woods. I played at Skirmish USA in the Poconos(Jim Thorpe, PA). It was the Battle of Stalingrad with my team, the Russians, outnumbered 2-1 by the German team. It was GREAT. There must have been over 1200 people in total. It was mainly mission/objective based, but there's non-stop action too. One example would be holding down a fuel depot as our first mission. We got there and had to secure it for 15 minutes to get the points. After about five minutes, we came under attack but held on for the points. If you wanted fast action you just went to the Tippmann Castle since it was constantly being fought over. Fun times, fun times.
