    the scenario market is getting really popular. as the tournament scene struggles the woods/rec/scenario market is growing tremendously.

    i think if ima get back into it i wanna rock a pump gun, it would be like the equivalent of my music stuff. no fancy nothing just pure performance, saves money and makes you a better player just like my line 6 made me a better player by just playing and not sitting around gassing

    I just wish pod harnesses for scenario games weren't just vests or anything over the shoulder. I like them around the waist, but none of them come in a camo pattern called multicam. It's the best camo I have ever used.

    In Soviet Russia, paintball misses YOU!
    Oh wait, paintball misses you in the normal world too.

    Am I really the only one who used to play Speed/Airball matches? :(

    I rocked Dye gear for a while and was saving up for an auto-cocker (Smart Parts Impulse) but then slowly got out of it since it cost us like $120 for a full days worth of playing - and that was before I had a job. It was like $40 to get in, then you had to have a case of paint plus air refills and food.

    I miss it.

    I've been all over ANS Gear! There is a multicam pod pack that is ONLY around the waist? Is any part of it touching the shoulders?
    I've played speedball, hyperball, and some x-ball. I can't stand x-ball/airball because of the inflatable obstacles. Other than that, idk why I hate it. I like the hard cover used in hyperball and speedball.

    I don't have paintballs, I can't fill my air tank.. therefore, I can't shoot anything..

    im a huge airball guy. i just love the woods equally. in the woods i can take a couple of buddies and we feel like we're doing some commando shit. in airball i feel like its a high speed chess game. if there was a good field in my area that did both equally well, or at least ran more airball games in a day, i'd be set

    HOLY NECROBUMP BATMAN!!

    So I've been out of paintball for a while, but I'm starting to get back into it. I'm the heaviest I have ever been right now, but I'm getting that taken care of by running and riding a bike a lot.
    I still haven't been to Oklahoma D-Day, but 2013 is gonna be the year I go.

    Paintball is a fun game but I don’t mind it being called a sport, It needs strength, patience, focus and to be goal oriented. These factors are essential for a sport. I love to play paintball!

    That might be your opinion, but it doesn't make it fact.

    Plus, consider that you need to be able to run around during X/Hyper/Air/Speedball matches (Strength) or if you're playing Woodsball you need to move slowly as to not give yourself away (Patience) and you always need to be focused on what you're doing or else - you're out! (Focus)

    Hmm, looks like it incorporates everything you were asking for.

    I have 3 teenage sons, the oldest two play so I do too. Woodsball mainly, either at a couple places we found or P&L paintball in the town of Bridgewater,MA. My middle boy got a job ther last summer in fact. We play with a group of current and former Marines and Army dudes. As you might imagine we got got pretty good, pretty quick....lol.


    We have some pretty good gear. 3 Tipmann A-5's with full auto/response trigger mods, a Tipmann 98, and my middle boy has an Invert Mini......mean little gun right there.
