Face-thank you
Sgt.-ya he is, but I mean it would still be nice to get his opinion on it :P

i dont want to make tshirts cuz I know kids who think they are "agg" are going to try to incorporate them into it and I really dont want to see this become a fad.

as for stickers. 3" wide 2.5" tall

Grassroots Part 1
A Manual To The Industry

By;
Aleksey Kunyavsky Royt
(a.k.a Krewkillaspanky on PBNation/TechPB)



Chapter 4: Bullshyt Bully's
We have all seen them. The guys running around, totteing there SL94's. You know, the kids that think just because there gun costs more then the average car payment, they are the hottest **** at the field. The same people that laugh at rentals, and beginners, when they get bunkered. It is people like this that turn younger, and newer players away from paintball. The same kids who overshoot beginners, the same kids who wipe because its fun to cheat, the same kids who are bringing down our sport.

When I show up in the morning, nowhere on the waiver does it say "Be prepared for dueche bags trying to ruin your day". I understand, its paintball. **** happens. However, I belive a certain code of ethics should be STRICTLY enforced when at the field. All of which I will outline in the 2nd part of my epic anti-sociological rant.

Do you want this to stop? Do something about it. Step up at the field and tell people it is not okay. Have some self-respect, and respect for others. Stick up for the little guy. Be the hero, help someone out. Who knows, that kid with the Spyder, that just got bonusballed, and never wants to play again. He could have been the next Oliver Lang.... Keep that in mind next time you decide a beginner is a good target for a chrono.


hollywoodmischief@yahoo.com


totally agree theres kids at my school that go every weekend because their rich pricks and are semi good but think their god because they have awesome gear. one week one of those kids told me to go and i said i didnt have anymoney and he said just make your parents pay. well i held back but i could of gone batshit crazy and yelled at him saying I work for MY money like a USEFUL and RESECTFUL human being. needless to say hes also one of the people that bunkers the rentals laughs and trashes the kid with the spyder. the kid could beat me up so instead when i said something to him about it he laughed and threatened to kick my ass, well next time he asked me to fix his gun i just screwed with it completely and made it so it wouldnt shoot. and thats how you beat the prick bullys in paintball



Ive gotten in fights with kids twice my size. Trust me for an 18n year old im not that big, about 5'10" 130pds. I am not a body builder by far. Its a matter of fact of sticking up for yourself.

Anyways, kids like that are everywhere. Next time he bunkers a rental, do waht I do. Have a good back player straight post on him, and tear him to shreds. Or, hold him down, and let the rental use ur gun to tear him to shreds.

Trust me, ive done it. Nothing more rewarding then seeing a 10n year old in a jump suit NXL bunker a guy with a BNIB GEO that freaks cuz theres paint on it. Karma is the ultimate weapon.

This is amazing! BTW, the assholes aren't just in paintball. I play all kinds of sports and the rich kid with the best equipment who beats on everyone is universal. Basketball, its the guy with the $160 Jordans, custom jersey, wristbands etc. Football (American), pretty much the same, 'cept me might be 'roiding. You get the idea. Assholes are universal, but regardless this is amazing, Thank you for making it!

I should print this out, and stick it on the bulletin board at my field. Then make everyone read it before being allowed to game. But the guys at my field are something like this. During my first scenario, this guy, total stranger, he watched out for me, giving me some recon tips and stuff. Well, he had my 6 and i had his.
When in doubt, empty thy hopper

I used to say i could quit anytime, and i didn't need to do it. But every time i don't, my fingers twitch, my mouth goes dry, i become restless. And every time i do, i start to sweat, my breathing quickens, and my mind swims. I've lost my girlfriend because of this, i spend less time with my family, and i spend too much money going through pack after pack. I've got to quit, but i can't. So I'm here, and TechPB's my Paintballers Anonymous.

Wanted to let everyone know, an offical website is on the way.

I and people at Camp Pendelton are planing FREE "Grassroot Days" supported by Aftermath, Infamous, and various other high profile teams. It will be a free clinic for ALL levels of players to attend. Everyone from first timers, to pros are welome to come learn from the best in the sport. No word on an exact date yet. However a FEW of the many pros attending are. Mike Hinnman, Alex Goldman, and Travis Lemanski. Please keep the support going.

The more national support we get, the farther we can spread! I am working on similar programs in 4 other states at a total of 12 fields. Lets keep it going!

* hopes for one in Canada :ph34r: *

Weve actually got some backing finding our home on RevolutionPaintball. The offical site goes up later tonight, but youll be able to find new articles there from myself as well as news on everything from gear, to European paintball, to North America. Its sorta a news site like ProPaintball but with How-Tos and opinionated articles. Ill get everyone links later on, and as soon as it launches I will have a new article up and ready to go.
