Haha, it says I didn't buy any new guns. Yeah, another PbN user was nice enough to lend me his Droid so I could try it out though. I'm going to play with it this weekend if it is warm enough.

My profile lists it. I'm way old. I turned 33 this year. I actually first turned Pro 10 years ago and finally retired at the beginning of this year.

Wow, what a generous offer, but I'll decline. It came as a black and yellow gun, but I swapped the yellow parts for chrome with a local guy whose gun looked terrible with the chrome.

I've played Novice in NEPL for a couple events and novice tournaments all around, but my teams get smashed so it seems like it's no indication of my skill. I've also played many Class AA college tournaments, which are open and essentially worthless for any Divisional teams I'm assuming. How did you start out in the divisions? I'm just trying to catch a break here and get as much information possible so I can one day move on up through the NPPL rankings.
That's actually a pretty common question. You have to play. Join in local scrimmages if they exist, that's the cheapest way to play competitively. Try to join up with local players that have similar:
1. ambitions
2. skill level
3. money situation.
All three of those are important for a local team to work. Once you have a team, get to playing. Find local events and play them all. If you aren't winning them, then save your money and don't even play larger events. Once you are known as a tough local player, then local teams will start asking you to play. Here's a secret: every team in the world is looking for new talent. If you are better at the paintball, more available, have cash to spend playing and can get along with the team better than their current players then they'll want you. If no one is asking, you need to get out and play more.

Lane Wright (former Team Xtreme, All American and Image player) once said that the best player on the team will get recruited to play by other teams. So if you aren't on a team, get on one or make one. If you are on one, you'll know you are playing well when you get offers.

I'll tell you some other time about how I moved up through the divisions. Ask me in a couple days, I've typed enough.

I honestly don't know them. The techs at World Cup just flashed my board with newer software and I haven't shot it since. The only thing I did when the marker was stock was to take up the Ball in Place delay so that each ball had longer to settle in the chamber before the marker fired. That made it more gentle on paint. Combine that with the magnetic clutch and raceway in a Halo and you have a winner.

Sure. To be perfectly honest it doesn't shoot nearly as well as it used to. It used to get monthly tune-ups at Airgun Designs and it was a beast. There's a reason why I shot it long after electronic guns came around. However, it hasn't been in for work in 7 years since they let go all of the techs I trusted to work on it.
