    here are our guns ( my brother and i) mine is the all black one...

    theres about $2100 sitting there on the table... and if everything were bought new (my gun and tank are used) it'd be about $2400.... :shocked: :eek1: then you include the pants jerseys and other equipment. way over $3000 between the 2 of us...

    I just sold $3K in paintball equipment to fund my project '85 Toyota. Some of it was one off custom guns built by me, some were just your standard tourney markers. The custom stuff hurt to sell, but i needed the money. Sad thing is i still have a crappload of equipment here, probobally arround $1500 worth of stuff.

    It's not just addicting ... it's freaking surreal. I'm sorry, did you say anything in English? :haha:

    Now, the paintball guys must think we're nuts for saying things like 3503502032051014410 (that's my power train:) ) or talking about an ORD 203/205 doubler, etc etc ... but it's funny to see other hobbies in that light!

    I did Paintball hard core for about 5-6 years. I started back in the primitive days with Splatmasters. I was the first person I knew that had a 7oz CO2 tank for about a year. God I loved that SMG60. Later I played with a few good teams. Overall the most fun was around 94-95. I was part of a small four man team that would go to the big 24 hour games in Ocala, FL. Between the Guns, radios, night vision and other gear the four of us had about 20k in gear. The games were on a 100 acre site and up to 500 players.

    every time i pick up an extra few bucks i get a hobby, trucks, scuba, whitewater canoes, shotgun, paintball, pistols....

    so far in that order, but nothing has been more rewarding than the memories of leaving welts on those dear to me.

    aim for the throat.... it makes for good stories. :)
