Unhappy Why.. Cruel world...

I love the sport. But I can only go to the field if I have a friend to play with me (Parents rules...) I have no friends who like PB like me... I CAN'T PlAY BUT LIKE 1 EVERY MONTH OR TWO CUZ OF MY STUPID FRIENDS!!! My life has no point... Where's a gun? How can I get my friends who think it 'hurts to much' and 'dOnt have time' and 'don't have money' to play???

Become a lone paintball player that only a few people know. Go to each field completely anonymous. You just have to figure out where everyone else is paintballing, you don't necessarily have to know anyone. Become a self-sufficient paintballer. After 5 years of playing with no friends and destroying, the few people who know you will start to call you a legend.

Check the regional forums to see if some random 30 year old man can go with you. Your parents would probably be fine with that.

Considering he's 13, its gonna be tough to hit different fields without parental supervision.

Hook up with the guys on the wrestling team. I got started because of wrestling back in middle school(1996). They always play, and aren't worried about getting stung by a paintball.

By the way I'm right below you in North Georgia. If you need a gun, PM me and I'll get you something. I hate kids not being able to play because they don't have money to spend $100+ on a marker, then more on a mask. I try to always have a few complete starter kits to hand out for 40-50 bucks. Usually Spyders, Tippmanns or Spyder clones, a mask, pod pack with pods, a normal hopper and barrel cover.

Thanks bruh, but hard work pays of, and iv got good gear. It's just finding somebody to play with... Also I haven't bought a nice gun yet. I want to wait a couple years. But all my gear is fairly top notch.

I had the same problem when I was younger, I had several friends who played and then they all quit because they could not longer afford it (partially because they all got into drugs which are expensive).

I would recommend trying to hit up the same field as often as possible. I always go to one or two fields and have been for 8+ years now so I have gotten to know a lot of the regulars there. That helps a lot.

Join a sport as suggested, make friends. They'll go. Not saying all but kids that don't do any real physical activity growing up, well, they grow up to be *****es.

That suck man.

Are there teams in your area? They don't have to be competition teams if your not thinking that way but even a woodsball team who just likes to get together and shoot.

I completely agree with the suggestion for you to be a freelance player tho I'm sure that is difficult considering the fact you have to have a friend with you to visit a field. So first, ask around your school and such to see if you can get a +1. Even if your buddy doesn't like it the first time around, use the opportunity to meet some players at the field who are more vetted and network.

No worries bro. This too shall pass

A majority of my local wrestling team isn't allowed to play regularly during the winter months, because the welts look "too much like ring worm" and would actually get in trouble for doing so.
