Unfortunately I'm out of the sport for awhile. Got in a bad car wreck, smashed in the drivers door back in late August. I have a subdural hematoma with post-concussive syndrome and PTSD. Gonna be a year of recovery time before we'll know anything permanent, but I can't have any strenuous activity. Sucks. I was just getting in shape and having a more active lifestyle.


Hope you recover soon, that sucks.

Yeah, head injuries aren't something to fool around with. My friend has had 5+ concussions from football and only told someone about 1 (and got it treated). He now needs glasses because he has terrible vision...

it was a mix of both. Really just our inexperienced players. It is hard trying to baby 40 players when there is only 3 of us reffing. I think I did a good job, but I got shot more than I deserved to.

You do get used to it. Almost too used to it. When I was playing saturday, I yelled "player is out, let them out" when a teammate was eliminated.

Might take a while to save the money. You most likely will make minimum wage. It doesn't amount to what you think it will.

Definitely a good set up. When you do get it, don't fall into the trap of wanting to get the newer and "better" thing. I love my Geo 3, but the money would have been better spent on a new laptop. Also, buying better paint will give you better improvement then a more expensive gun will (shameless plug of Cockerpunk's new cause).

Thanks I will be able to get the tank really soon but I might have to wait a few paychecks to get the Spire. I am really hoping I can trade my old setup for an Axe, and then I should be set. I really don't want to drop over $1K on a gun because I simply cannot afford it but I believe upgrading to the axe will give me that tournament grade performance for the mid range price. After that I might get me a nice little pump and live happily ever after forever lol. I am just thanking God every day for the job I just got at my local field (I just turned 14 and they hired me 5 days after I could legally get a job!)

It tends to get very cold, and snow in Ohio. Guns start to fail, and people don't really come out in winter.
