Hello everyone, my name is Nic, I have decided to give paintball a try, after being a airsoft enthusiast. I just got tired of spending so much on my gun and not as much playing the sport. I thought I would feel better about paying $100 on paintballs than maintenance on my gun, so here I am.
My username is Triples Nines, an anagram for Silent Sniper, a position I hope to fill. I have my eyes right now on a Tippman X7, and later want to add a much longer barrel, scope, stock, and whatever else I need to make one bulls eye hitting gun.
Currently I have a cheap Triton marker, it was a kit, so I got the things I needed to start, as well as an extra tank.
I live on the east coast, and there's only a few paintball places I know about, but my friends get together every now and then and we usually get a large turnout, so at least I know there will be occasional local matches. I don't know what backyard matches are thought of here, in airsoft they are frowned upon because they are associated with gangtas running around the streets with no face protection, which gives airsoft a bad rep. No offense to any gangtas
The local matches are not like this. the usual host has a large tract of land far from anyone else, any neighbors usually have someone playing in it so its not like thay wouldn't know about it, and they do play it safe.
So thats me, hello everyone and expect lots of questions, because I am very new to the world of paintball.
