It's a sad day for the paintball world. Ok, maybe not. Well, maybe.

EVERYTHING I own that's paintball related is going up for sale this week. I have some bills to pay and I need as much money as I can get and since it's just sitting around, it's going to be sold. This is my official goodbye to actually playing - at least for awhile. Next I play, I'll have to rent or buy something new!

Other than that - yay for Fall Break!

I had the same thing about a year and a half ago.

Sold literally everything. I miss not playing sometimes, but am busy with work and personal life now (nephews/nieces) and g/f is living about an hour away at school so my days off are spent visiting her.

I also have my "own" child.. known as "bubba" .. my 2 yr old english bulldog. Whoever thinks they're lazy can come look after him for a day! Bugger doesn't stop!

Looks like alot of the sites I used to visit have slowed down.. PB on the decline?

Greeney! Long time no see!

Yeah, my wife and I split up, my job got hectic, my oldest is in college, my youngest a sophomore, house repairs, etc., made some financial mistakes and now I have to cover my ass, and since the game is out of the picture it's all got to go.

But I agree, I think PB on the internet is slowing down. Most pb forums I got to I don't even read pb related stuff anymore.

Yea, good to see you guys are still here.

Sorry to hear you split up, I work with some guys who recently split and it seems extremely stressful, so hopefully everything's going alright for you in that regard buddy.

Kids in college too? Jeebus.. No wonder you're selling the gear!

Yeah, it's ok. Going on 3 years now. And not only is she in college, she still lives at home and has a boyfriend. So even MORE expensive, lol!

So I guess I'm not the only one who realizes paintball seems to have declined in a pretty big way. Our forum isn't the only one struggling. Even PBN has declined substantially from where it was 3 years ago.

I miss paintball every so often, but then I remember how outrageously expensive it is and I don't miss it anymore at all.

i still have most of my gear, just cant bring myself to let anything go. god knows i need the money.

so im supposed to fly to florida in december for my gf's graduation ceremony, but im working part time and theres no way i can afford a ticket right now. and i know my parents wont foot the bill even if i pay them back, because they want me out of the house ASAP, so i dont know wtf im going to do.

Talking about paintball, on the brighter side, I'm gonna go to a ref clinic to be a certified PSP ref on the 4th of next month.
