well as a young gun myself (been playingfor 4 years) i know where you stand right now, i just sorta went through it myself. i guess the best way for me to give advice is through a story. well i started when i was ten with two friends but they had already been playing for a little while so they had a team, no place for me. it took me 2 yeas to get a team together when i finally did, one kid quit. well i posted it on my home fields website. found a teammate. i want to do some tourneys, get better gear you know all the main stuff. only problem to young to get a job. a friend and i were regular customers at my local field and they were looking for some young people to help out. i work there for money or paint. every dollar counts. i also found out that when my mom was working for a hotel that they keep pop cans. i was making like 40 bucks a week just in cans. also through my experience in little leaguebaseball i got the idea to sit outside of like walmart or other store and ask people to contribute to my team going to a tourney or whatever. i haven't tried it, but i reccommend asking the store first. those are some ideas
the can wouldn't work if you live in a state that dosn't have a refund deposit on cans, SOL
i would also like to say that you don't need the latest and the greatest gear. spend your hard earned time and money on useful stuff like paint and stuff.
maybe get like a pmr or ion or something and stick with it for a little while. oh yeah, christmas and birthdays. if you really are a baller you should save all that mony for paintball.
i forgot about websites and stuff. well action village is the best around. and when it comes to gear i would reccommend a pmr se w/ Ul frame, empire events, rdz envy harness (or nxe elevation), and the stuff needed for marker like hopper and tank (doesn't really matter, but i guess a halo b w/rip and v35 and crossfire[any one]).
But remember these items are not neccisary, getwhat you feel comfortable with and that you can afford.
