A pump is no more accurate that any other gun, and people are not magically more skilled just because they have a pump.
I should say that I'm not hunting for rentals. If one is in a open shot that I can make, I shoot them.


The pump players are better around my parts than the electric kids.

If wealthy parents want to funnel money into paintball through their kids, I have no problems with that. It's the players with skill that catch my attention, not their gear.

What ticks me off most is people who STILL cant grasp the following

There = primarily a location descriptor. ex: The filling station is over there.
Their = shows possession. (possessive pronoun) ex: Kids and their expensive guns....
They're = contraction of they are. just like do not becomes don't, they are becomes they're. ex: They're really angry about your nice gear huh?

not directed at everyone here of course but a large amount of posts on this thread

I've have returned to the game after ten years, my son found a old minimag at a yard sale for 20 bucks. I had to buy it and we took it to the local field and they fixed it and we've been at the field with our old "agd" gear for the past 6 months. The kids his age all have the newer timmys or invert-minis. I have met some really cocky kids with new equipment and parents that were jerks too. I tell my son to shoot them first. We are looking forward to the new purchase of our new guns next month. He's gettin a etha. He earned it.

People who think that a 12 year old kid actually "works" and does chores or whatever and saves enough money for a 1200 dollar gun doesn't realize that their parents still pretty much bought it for them. Not tht this is a good or bad thing it's just the people who think that a kid can actually afford an expensive gun all by him or her self.

You are probably right. Parents are probably "overpaying" their child. However, that is still a whole lot better than handing a child $1200 for a new gun without the child having to lift a finger. "Chores" teach kids that things do not come automatically in life; that we have to make sacrifices and do things we don't necessarily want to do in order to get things we want.

Keep hoping this thread will die, but since it won't: ^^^yes. Sure, they didn't really make all the money, but it at least teaches the kid how to work.

I feel the need to post so here it goes...

who cares if a rich kid plays paintball

cheaper gear in a few years(chances are that it will be barely used)

more people playing the better

I was pretty spoiled as a child and I am thankful and fortunate

then turned 18 and realized paintball isnt as affordable after the rent check

If there is anything anyone should get from this thread it's this.

When I first started playing I asked my parents for help in buying a gun so my dad called a friend and got me a job working for minimum wage over the summer as a mechanics assistant, personally I think it was the best thing he could have done, because if he just handed me the marker I'd be less likely to treat it carefully as opposed to it being my money out there, and something of worth.
That's just my two cents.

In my opinion we hold high end gear to a high end standard. If someone is shooting a PE BL Ect we associate a certain skill level and maturity, bc a great majority of us worked up to the guns that we have now. And with that road to the present, we have built on our PB knowledge. I mean i think everyone here knows their first setup, how long they played with it, and the difference they felt when they moved up. Hope that this was coherent due to its 1 am.. Im content with the tools i have and thats all that matters

Because they don't pay for there own gear... I don't have anything against that, because I understand that they are too young to work and earn $$$, but it is kinda unfair.
