It's definitely worth it to me. I've given up other sports just to play paintball before. It's really the only sport I've ever seriously been into (I don't like football and I live in the south
). It is hard to pay for sometimes, especially since I'm only 14 and I buy all my gear (with the exception of my birthday and Christmas). But I resell gear, do yard work, and pressure wash houses and driveways with my own pressure washer to make money. I also play pump when I play rec to save on paint and air.
