Ok im going to get this out of the way right now. Im 19 and I have a greater respect for the elderly than anyone I know. I've been working in Geriatrics since I was 16 and it's a very rewarding field. This background got me thinking.Have you guys ever noticed that there are a lot of "Old Dudes" who still play paintball?
Every field always has some hard as nails Basil Plumley, 60 year old titanium hip death machine who's only goal is to crush all the people younger than him into the ground because he still can do it and wants everyone to know he can still do it. Otherwise take the boys to school. Kinda like the old guys in pick up basketball that show up to the court and rain three's on guys 1/4 of their age.
I noticed that every field has at least one or two Old Dudes that absolutely tear it up out there. Most of the time its rec/scenario very rarely will you find them on the airball field. Most of the time they are shooting a mech gun like a Mag, Cocker or Tippman sometimes even nelson based pump guns, rarely are they electros.
I've come to one simple conclusion, that everyone that age who has been playing as long as they have have super powers. They can dodge paint and they seem to shoot with perfect accuracy never missing a shot when they shoot. For some reason they also seem to manage to go all MGS3 "The End" on us and disappear into the bushes take a quick nap then proceed to headshot you while your completely oblivious of their location.
All the more power to you old dudes. Keep on doing what your doing, have fun kick ass and I can only hope that one day I will gain the knowledge and super powers to become a true master of the game of woodsball.
