Default X Box 360 or Used gun?

So, the other day I got paid for reffing 27 hockey games last month. I was thinking about getting a X Box 360 Elite, X Box Live, and Gears of War, but then I was on a friends myspace and watched the paintball video he had on it and it made me really want to get back into the sport. I need you guys opinions about this.

Edit- Also I can drive in 2 months so I will be able to get to the field w/o having to have my parents drive me.

Well this is basically what you're asking.

1. Stay inside for hours on end and sit on your ass
2. Have fun and play paintball.



I'd go with #2.

I voted paintball... But honestly... it's up to you. What do you see yourself doing? What do you see yourself doing more then the other? One is exercise, the other is an excuse to gain weight and become unhealthy.

Or to look at it another way, one lets you relax at home, spend time alone (wich everyone needs every once in a while), not have to spend more money every time you play, the other you deal with some bad attitudes at times, have a high possibility of being overshot/bunkered, and spending more money on upgrading once you get the gun (I know I do that anyway... I can't stand anything stock), having to pay more $$$ for paint, air and entry. Both have downsides, but both are fun. It's where you want to invest your monies.

Being a gamer and a paintballer... I could honestly say that I can go either way. But... Why not just try one. If you get out of either of them, just sell the item and get into the other one.

Enjoy life and the great outdoors, would you rather feel good about jacking somebody up in a video game or in person...I prefer the latter.
