Smile After a 9 year hiatus I'm back in the game.

Hello, yes I am new.

I haven't played this game in 9 years, and I still have my Spyder Compact from 1998 and it still shoots very good. It is the only gun I have ever owned.

MAN how things have changed!!
I have been doing a lot of reading trying to get caught up on whats new and what things like "HPA" means. The new barrels, paint, and the science that has evolved since I stopped playing is amazing!

You will usually find me on boards such as LS1tech and various other car sites. That is what has taken me away from paintball, but I want to get back in it as a recreational player.

Oh man, welcome back! I still have a Compact in a drawer actually haha. Great little marker.

Despite this site being a little slow, many of us here call it home. Many have left the sport, but still hang around (myself included), and others are still kicking. Most everyone here knows their stuff and is at the very least moderately friendly.

Yes, much has changed but the fundamentals seem to still all be there.

Wait? When did this happen? No, no, no, no, NO! Why wasn't I informed of this? What a load of crap!

Look, if the rules are going to change, I have to be told these things...how else will I know to stock the pill cabinet? Sheesh! It's a serious job here and I need to know. Where are the thong boys at? I need to take this out on someone...




Welcome and make yourself at home (but not in my chair). I'm old and it's got my hemorrhoid cushion on it - and NO ONE touches the cushion...it's pretty gross...

I haven't played in three years, and things have changed A LOT since just then. I need to start back up again. Anyone find any 100 dollar bills laying around? I had 3 or 4 of them in here the other day...

Ah yes.. The cushion.

I haven't played in almost 3 years now, but I put a lot more money into it than it seems you may have, haha. I do, however, still have my TL+/Shutter/Bolt Action laying around somewhere.. As well as my Protege. It's too bad. Oh well, go hit the fields!

Why would you say many has left the sport? Is it dying?

Welcome back to the game!!!

I think what marv meant was that some of the members here don't play anymore. As for the sport dying, in my opinion (unless in AZ), it is not dyng but the sport has changed over the years.

I guess I am old as well. I realized I stopped playing when I was 28. I'm now 39. So I guess it was a 11 year hiatus. lol

I admit I am excited to get back out in the fields!
