Just curious what you get into if your game-day gets rained out, or it's too windy, etc...

Rain... Rain does not stop PB.

Protect your paint and keep the barrel as dry as you can.

Rain PB can be fun.

slim and shady

we play regardless of weather, we have played in blizzards (this was by far the best paintball experiance ever it was like a whiteout!) pooring rain, extream heat wind you name it. Personaly because im into scenario ball so much I think the weather just adds to the game. This last scenario (Sunday) treanches were full of water and mud there was snow other places nothing stopped people from going where they needed to be. So I guess I dont get stoped by the weather.

I just pick a gat that has an enclosed bolt (usually an Angel), put a solid lid on instead of my speedfeed, and go to town. Wind? Just compensate for it.

I play Paintball? Who cares what the weather is like. Get out and play. Make sure you don't have an open bolt gun and don't let your paint get wet.

lack of people is the only reason we stop. I have gone over during a blizzard -23 crazy wind. The 2 of us hung out on the balcony and shot a bunch of paint anyway. When i left we had to shovel my car out.

Spyders are open bolt, and many of them are electronic and regardless the still shoo the same with a mechanical trigger except the e-trigger can usually cycle the gun faster.

ferret, if 2 people show up, you have enough to play. although 1v1 does get boring after a while.

like i said we were just shooting off his deck and often times we have decided to just go out side and stand there taking shots at each other which is fun for about 10 mins but its kinda just a waste of paint. 2v2 is fun if you have some good people to play with.

Its pretty depressing to find that 10 people that you talked to that said they would play don't show up leaving just 2 of you. We built a potato gun one day in the same spare time or build forts in the woods.
