Hey everyone, i just need some quick advice. These past few weeks have really been hell for me. with the passing of my mom and all of my gear being stolen i am really thinking of quitting this sport. All of my gear was in one of my teammates car. he was also my teams tech. there was about $6000 worth of gear in his trunk while it was stolen. After canceling my trip to world cup that i was going to attend with my mom, i am now left with $350 for all new gear and a gun. After using 50 on a new jersey and getting a free tank and rotor from Tim (a good friend of mine who gave me his gear after he heard of what happened. Thank You) im left with $300 for everything else you need to play tourneys. My grandparents cant afford it so im on my own. To make matters worse, my team only uses bob long guns. This is a big FML. I dont know what to do. i made a list of what i will need and it came out to about $1000. I really dont know what to do. Any help is greatly appreciated.

maybe an old used Bob Long would fit your budget, and a 30-50 dollar mask

I'm not really great with the financial part, but I just wanted to post to say I'm truly sorry about your mother passing. Also, about your gear being stolen. Karma's a bitch, and whoever did it, will get fucked over for it.

Good luck bro. If you ever need someone to talk to, feel free to shoot me a message.

Sorry to hear about that, bro.

Ask one of your teammates to borrow one of their extra guns until you get the cheddah to get your own stuff. You'll find out really quick which ones are real teammates or not.

You can't drive without insurance on the car...

Anyways I am greatly sorry for your mother passing, and for all your stuff being stolen I dont even know why people do things like this. Anyways go file a police report because a car is easier to track down then a marker.

Like the other guys said to ask your team/ friends they should be able to help you out.

If you need anything (well almost I'm from Canada) pm me and we'll talk.

yeah you are better off asking someone to borrow their gun rather than get something that is not going to be up to par.

hey man this is mega sad but if your mom was going to go to cup with you she would not want you to quit. she would want you to keep going and things will turn out good in the end for you and who knows maybe they will find the guy with your gear and you will get your stuff back and it will be all good. best of luck to you.

Thanks everyone. This really means a lot to me. Things aren't looking that good for me tho. I already have to pay $10 each way in cab fees and then paint and admissions. From the looks of it, it's highly unlikely I can keep playing on my team.

at least play rec ball dude and when things get better go back to your team and if they dont accept you back with open arms its their loss and you can always make a new team.

Hey man, I 'm REALLY sorry for you. Don't quit no matter what. Everything that goes bad in my life (many things), is funneled away through playing. About getting gear, I can find you a nice and tourny ready setup for under $300. Try a used pro-flex and this.

I would take a break from the tournament scene until you can buy yourself a used vice and everything else you need. Until then maybe you can just borrow a friends gun.

i'd say make him pay.


but if he can't even afford insurance for his car, then i doubt he has that kind of money.
