I began to stray away from paintball and the community when I started to grow up. It was obsession when I was 11-14, but the time commitment and cost just diminished my spirit when I found other passions.I remember being my immature self always engaging in the forums trying to fit in. I remember always fantasizing at the new markers coming out. I'm about to enter my first year of college now and paintball has been just out of the question with the responsibility of creating a sustainable future for me. So maybe the population had just grown up?
