    Well I paintball. I have been doing it for 2 years now.
    I used to play woods ball....but thanks to sD-Dark...I am starting to play speedball.

    Also...thanks to dark for hooking me up with those great prices.

    Anways...do you paintball?
    If you do...what kind of gun do you have.

    I own a:
    -Tippmann A-5
    (lots of add-ons)

    I am selling it for a speed ball gun....the base impulse.

    thats the gun...the blue one.

    Im getting some add ons as I get some more money...becuase im buying some dye gear.

    Once again big thanks to dark.

    Anyways...post your stuff here.

    Also...are any of you that play...sponsored?

    Well...just start of with something simple...not to pricey like a speedball gun...or an expensive woodsball gun...to much to start of with.

    My first gun was a bonedaddy. It was a good gun...all though I dont reccomend Gameface products, very unreliable.

    Just basically...get something like a 70-130 dollar gun...you can get a good begginer kit with that. I will list the things that you need to start off with:

    -Gun (see price range above)
    -Paintballs (not necassary right away)
    -C02 tank (atleast a 9oz)
    -Mask and Goggles (they come together...put together)

    Thats basically all you need to start off. Then here are some optional things:

    -Gloves
    -Jersey
    -Pants
    -Cleats

    Theres a whole list of extras and add0ons for your gun and yourself. Just have to look around...try http://www.dyeprecision.com
    Dont buy a gun off there just yet. They are expensive...but they have some pretty cool gear...for your future paintballing.


    I guess it all depends on weather you are going to get into woodsball or speedball. Speedball requires alot more gear and such, rather than woods ball wiht just the gun and your basic camoflauge.

    Hope that helps.:)

    I think everyone in the world should get into it.

    Upsides:

    -Its fun
    -Something to do on your spare time
    -Keeps you healthy and fit
    -Can get sponsored
    -You can only get better

    Downsides:

    -Pricey
    -You can only do it like 10 times a year depending on what seasons you play in...like winter and such
    -Can be harmful, just play with commonsense and its harmless
    -Gun may break
    -Buying the right gear and such (pricey^^)
