A friend got me into paintball a few months ago, and although I've only gone a couple of times so far and don't even have my own equipment yet I'm totally addicted. We got a local place to open up for us next wednesday for a private game for about 30 of us on all their fields for his bachelar party - can't wait :cool: :cool: :cool:

I also received a belated birthday present from my ex girlfriend today - an introductory flying lession certificate (dependant upon passing a physical of course, which will be no prob). I'v always loved flying, but never bother looking into a pilot's liscenes because of the incorrect assumption of the costs and time required, but a couple thousand dollars is totally doable to learn to fly. I'm totally stoked for my first lesson!!

Who else is into it??

I was heavily into paintball for several years but all of my buddies who I played with moved away and I hadn't played in a year or so. I ended up selling all of my gear for $1000(I put about $3000 into it).
If youa re serious about getting into it, I'd start off with a Spyder. Easy to modify, fix and maintain and teaches a lot of basics. If you still like it after that you can consider upgrading.

I have never tried paintball. I really should get around to it one day. But, then I have lived in Utah all my life, and never been skiing either. Time to try a few things, I guess.

My dream is to have a glider or autogyro with automatic paintball guns mounted under the wings :D

This vehicle is pretty bad-ass, the ground version of what Doc was talking about.

P.S: I was a victim of a drive by paintballing. Luckily no one was painted.

In the words of Bugs Bunny:


You know ofcourse that THIS means war!


Would probably be what I would think after a drive by paintballing :p

Paintball is great fun, but it gets expensive once your hooked. I stopped because I just couldn't put the money into it when I bought my car. :(
