Default Any X paintballers out there?

sadly i think i will have to get out of paintball even though i love it and is one of my favorite things to do. Y do hobbies have to be sooo expensive!? one up side will be that i will have like $700 for RC if i sell all of my stuff.

my point being do any of u guys regret getting out of paintball?
if u are reading this i am assuming you have played paintball soo....

thanks

i use to want to play the sport but since i got into rc, i doubt i will get a chance to use any spending money on something other than clothes, shoes, and rc.

nice what guns did u have? and if u dont want any of your gear ill take it, lol.

and i really dont know i love playing paintball but i cant do it every day like i can with RC and it is at least $40 for a day of paintball and it is like $5 for RC i hear.

it sucks cause i just updated all my gear and have everything i need, gosh i cant decide.

if i do sell it all and go into RC is the resale bad here? the car i will get is the rc10gt2 i dont know how much i could sell and used one fore though.

I started playing back in 98 got out of it in 2004 and now I play on a Division 3 team called AirAssault. Reason why I left was lack of money and fun, then I came back when all the new electrics started to come in to the world. Now I play with a Proto PM7 and a "Virtue" Smart Parts Ion, I say Virtue because that is one of our sponsors and they built that thing so it is faster and more efficiant then the Shocker. "It is beautiful"

Rest of my gear is as follows.

Masks
Events
Proto FS
Vforce Profiler

Clothing
Evil Jerseys Red
Evil Pants Red
Evil Red Gloves
Shoes
JT Pro Series

Gun Equip "For the Ion"
Virtue Board
Virtue QEV
Virtue Ion Eyes "Blue"
Smart Parts Firebolt
Custom Products Blade Trigger
Freak Barrell System
All American Barrell Front

For the Proto
Dye Ultra Light frame
Virtue Board

Tanks
PMI Compressed air tanks 4500/88ci (3)
PMI Compressed air tanks 6500/68ci (2)

Misc. Equip
Gun Wrap
[link=http://viewmorepics.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=viewImage&friendID=4440290&albumID=102175&imageID=4902287]Check Out the Design[/link]

Head Wrap Custom By Virtue

And holy cow this got long, anyways, If you like that gunwrap design, or want one made I can design one for you. I think they are like 13 bucks made and slapped on the gun. If you want to see a wrap made go to www.gungraffiti.com

i think im into paintball more than rc but paintball is alot more expencive and i can barly afford it and thats with sponsors but they help alot. they get us into alot of tornys for free but when your using at least 2 cases of paint a day it gets a little expencive

I think if you realy like paintball just keep all ur stuff and play when you have some extra cash but if you want to get into the rc stuff for a little while it might just be best to sell ur marker, tank and loader and keep everything else and when you want to get back in to it buy some new stuff(but its kinda easier said than done )

I still have my paintball gear but rarely play anymoer; the reason, money! It just became too expensive for me. If I had the time and money, I would play it at least once a week! It' great excercise and a load of fun.

As for playing in a team, I never have. I always played in pick-up groups.

In the first time around I actually gave up RC for paintball. Sold my trucks and bought paintball stuff. I played speed ball in tourney's and had a great time. Now the opposite is happening. i am buying RC stuff agian and playing less paintball. I just need to find a happy medium between the two. I still have my DMC, Matrix, and Worr-Class Oracle (for those of you who know what that is.)

You should. It is a great sport. The impulse is a very cool gun. There are many upgrades and parts avaliable for it. You shouldn't need to sell your RC cars. Just don't shoot to much paint

yeah im not a very trigger happy person. i usually try to aim a little more instead of just spraying the field. but then again if that gun shoots as fast as i think it does everything might be changing. haha.

i play middle which means i have to adapt to pretty much every move and play everywhere (i love this position) and i make it to like the 30 or so. and i usually go through a little over 700 balls a game, its hard to conserve once your focused in on getting that one person out.

i really need a new tank all i have is a 48/3000 HPA im going to see if someone will trade me, lol but i really doubt it

As Carl Makowski (XSV) said to our team during a practice. It is allways nice to have someone get to the Fifty, even if they can't shoot. "Because lets face it once you get there, you are not gonna be able to hit all that much, unless if it is late in the game" But it pisses off the other team, and they direct their fire towards you so your team can advance and shoot them out.
