My 13 year old setup was a mini, steel tank, and vlocity junior and I had to get my parents to help me with the mini because I don't rob banks. At 15 I upgraded to an Ego 7, rotor, and CF tank with my birthday money but I don't consider any of that "with my own money" because it was all just saved allowances and birthday money over the years. Not until the last 6 months or so, have I been able to say that all the gear I currently use I paid for with my own earned money.
Moral of the story: Hey kid, you didn't buy that poison Ego X yourself at 14. Thanks for your time.
A: They got a job canadian and some American states laws are you can work at 12 with parental consent. Then they saved up money.
B: Their parents have a business and they chip in and work. Them save money
You know what angers me? When people come in and complain because someone had a Better set-up at a younger age than they did. I'm 14 and work and have owned many high end markers that I
payed for along with many other paintball related things. Paintball is my sport that I am dedicated to.
If you cannot handle people having nicer things than you GET PUT OF PBNATION PLEASE. /rant
