    it jsut hit me.
    TGT might have a before un noticed paintball crowd.
    anybody play?
    i used to play alot, then got into airsoft. but lately i havent played at all.
    was jsut browisng the web here at work looking at paint and paint guns, and got the old itch.
    ive got land access to a nice spot for it in the outskirts of seguin if somebody has a gun to lend, but later on ill be getting a new marker myself anyway.
    ( i sold mine for REAL ammo lol)

    I use to play but got tired of the punk kids shooting folks at point blank range but whine and cry when it happened to them!
    We had a cool indoor ranger here at one time I don't know if it is still in business or not!

    I did tell a kid about 14 years old if he shot me in the face mask one more time I was going to stick that gun up his butt and pull the trigger till the hopper was empty.
    Being the little smart ass he was he tried but I was waiting for him as we were leaving the shooting area and unloaded on his butt at point blank range with 8 or 10 balls.
    It was funny watching him step and fetch the way he was.
    The guy beside me gave him a couple of blast as well.
    Paint ball wars are a blast!!!

    about 4 years ago I got into it really heavy and loved it. Just got too expensive. I had about $2000 dallars of equipment and markers and upgraded stuff. I took it all to a pawnshop and started looking at the guns. They gave me $250 dollars credit for my $2000 worth of stuff. I put it towards a Taurus .357 revolver and have never looked back. Point of my story is that while a blast to play its too expensive for me. And if you get into it and buy all your own stuff to play the resale is horrible. All my extra money goes to my guns. Love to play though.

    thts part of the reason i switched to airsoft.
    they say paintball is expensive laser tag and airsoft is cheap war.
    lol!
    i missed the bruises form the paitballs, and most of my opposition dint use c02 for the air soft liek i did.
    the thing is airsfot almost demands indoor ranges because the ammo is so light.
    but co2 guns and the heavier pellets shoot pretty straight.
    be sure and wer your gear though, ive got a little scar on my nose from a airsoft pellet at close range.
    but the heavier balls are jsut more fun. although the 'affordable' guns are non realistic.

    I played paintball once with some boys I know. They only had 2 Co2 cans, so I played them both separately. I was surprised that it didn't really hurt, even at 10 feet (got shot in the hand). It's a fun game, but expensive, so I would only play if I could borrow/rent guns and balls.

    The airsoft looks fun, but there's something more menacing about a marble sized ball than a little plastic BB. Plus you have the plastic which animals (we have chickens) would ingest.

    I play paintball, never got into airsoft. Im a WDP/APS (angel) certified tech. misc certs in DYE/proto markers aswel as several air systems and markers. I do more tech work than playing these days due to shoulder surgerys.

    gears expensive but you can hawk it on pbn or fleabay. In the last 2 years ive had over $50,000 worth of equipment, even outfitted a team i played on for a tourny when they all lost thier gear on an airline *i drove*
