ok, so first off, im usually against this sort of thing, but its not like i can save the money. i went to coinstar with all my change from the last 10 years of my life or so, and instead of getting the money cash, and having 9 percent of all my money taken out, i decided to have the money put on a gift card for amazon.com. i had alot more change than i thought, and i ended up getting $257.58 in amazon credit. normally if i had it in cash it would go strait in the bank, but i kinda have to spend it, so i need ideas. i already spent 60 bucks on a new tank cover, some 10 round tubes, and an empire hat, now i need some more ideas of what to splurge on.

any suggestions?

hmm. spending other peoples money....lets see. dvd's? How about seasons of tv shows that you like? An ipod. A nice pair of headphones. You could buy a nice stereo receiver for that much. Then you would have to spend more money on speakers but you could make a nice system for your home if you so please. I cant think of anything else. what are you into other than paintball?

hmm, well i dont watch too much TV, and when i do, its off the DVR, so i have most of the TV shows i like on there. i already have an ipod, but i just have the stock headphones, so that might be a possability. i have a decent stereo already too.

im thinking about getting a cheap-o digital video camera so i can film paintball tourneys since i dont really play them anymore. i also play the guitar so i might get a new amp or some pedals or something. maybe a flat screen monitor too since im on the computer alot, and an LCD is much better on the eyes than a CRT.

Well if you have an older ipod, you could get some nice wireless headphones...

it says you have to have the stereo minijack, I think its that hole that looks like a really small USB port next to where the headphones plug in. I'm pretty sure it has to be an older ipod or an ipod mini, because my video doesn't have the minijack.

LCD monitor would be a great idea in my opinion. Flat screen, won't take up so much desk space. And, like you said, nice on the eyes.

yeah, i have a video too, so thats a no go. plus, my friend bought those for his iipod and it broke within like 2 weeks.


moe: the only reason im reluctant is ill be getting a laptop for college this summer (maybe sooner) so i wouldnt get too much use out of it.

If you want headphones for your Ipod get Shure (http://www.amazon.com/Shure-E2c-Sound-Isolating-Earphones/dp/B0000CE1UO/sr=8-1/qid=1160159462/ref=pd_bbs_1/104-1154406-5672764?ie=UTF8&s=electronics). These are their cheapies.

Get a helmate cam system. You have to buy the camera and this little extendocam thingy that you can put on your paintball mask. Its really cool. You can check out how you play, correct yoru mistakes. You can videotape other people playing as well.

Its a sweet investment. I was actually planning on doing something like that in the future.

Rob "Tyger" Rubin at www.webdogradio.us uses one to tape all the events and things he goes too. I think he listed which cam he has on there.

oh claus, you have to pay attention. i got the 200 bucks from cashing in 20,000 pennies! :D

ace - thats not a bad idea. i guy at my local field used to do the helmet cam thing, and taped all his tourneys and scenarios etc. it was pretty aggro.

if you cant think of anything to spend it on you dont need anything. a vote of top choices would be a good idea, but clearly you dont have those top choices yet. i said pennies cuz then you could put them in a blow up pool and roll in them.

personally i would get a super agg mask (i have one now, but you know... if i didnt)

or some underarmour cleats from amazon (they have good colors there)




OR

you could bank the green and get a 360 (if you dont have one) if you do:
splintercell
gears of war.



edit:edit:edit. ok i actually read past the title.... yea.... the amazon shoe thing works out, but the 360 is really convient. save an extra couple bucks and the 360 comes with gears as long as you pay in october (360 ships first then gears ships in nov. on the 12th)

Ok well...

I have noticed a violence in your posting, it may not be twords other members but posts such as this one and "Hitting people in the nuts is the best part of paintball" (yes I took the person above yours quote as well) are not helpfull to the thread and are considered crude, dumb, and useless. I would suggest that you take er easy with the public shows of violence because we are all mature adults here :rolleyes: and do not find that kind of thing funny. No you may not actually do it, yes you will probably say "it was just a joke why are you so serious about this" but honestly if you want to stay on these boards I suggest making sure a post will help the thread move along rather than jumping in and saying stupid things like that, that tend to make the thread go off topic when people start telling you that it is stupid.

On the threadstarters topic... A nice dartboard and some good quality darts wouldnt be a bad idea, when you go to college darts are very popular and if you have a nice set and a nice board you will easily make friends ;) or at least that is how it was when I was in school 20020304 years ago.

I just saved coins for a year and got $184, In ten years I would have saved probably like $1000 lol. Also for nextime, buy a coinsorter for like $20 so everytime you save coins you can put them in rolls and take them to the bank and have the exact total amount of what you saved up.

coin star gives amazon gift cards for the exact amount, thats what he did.
