Hey whats up everyone. My name's Shaun, I'm 17, I'm just startin to get into paintball and it's pretty awesome. I knew my friend Travis played on a team and it sounded pretty fun to play so I went with my friend Joey down to Extreme Rage in Florida when he went and it was awesome. I did relatively good for my first 2 times using a rental gun. The first time I played mostly woodsball which was really fun except on some games where half the team would just stay at the start which was lame but the other games were good. The second time I played only speedball (and one game of woods) and I founnd that more fun than woodsball. I'm goin again this Friday as well and am gonna use the rental and will use my friend's tippman for woods when he's not playing and my friend's mini (if he lets me lol) when he's not playin. I'm plannin on savin up for an Invert Mini since I got to use my friend's mini and really liked it and it isn't too expensive. I don't want to spend a fortune on a gun because, even though I'm just starting to play paintball, I can tell how well you do is more based on how well you are - not your gun; though a good gun does help .

I'll probably have enough money for the gun by some time in August as I only work a part time job and have to pay a phone bill every month. I'll end up playing just about every Friday especially when school starts, depending on if I have paint or not. Hopefully there's a field near whatever college I go to (probably UF or FSU) so I can keep playin after my senior year.

Hey i have a question about spyder barrels

ok so, i bought a spyder sonix pro in either 2006 or 2007 and was wondering if all spyder barrel threads are the same because i dont want to spend cash on a barrel that doesnt fit. I was also wondering if i should get a CP classic one piece barrel, or a JJ performance ceramic barrel (both would be 14 In.) any feed-back would be appreciated! Thanks!

I haven't played since the late 90's when I was younger. Due to lack of funds I eventually left the sport. After spending time in the Marines and doing a couple of combat tours, I got out and became a cop. Recently found out how much fun Speedball was I just bought all my gear. I just got a DM9 and pretty much every piece of Dye equipment on the market. I also have a victory on order. Now just looking to find a team that wants to go compete.

Hey guys,

I'm Tim, I'm 28, and I am new to paintball and live in centrali Cali. I played one time about 6 years ago up in Tahoe. I love it but never picked it up. Now my neighbors all go once a month, so I bought a gun and stuff so I can go with them. Feels like something I could really get into although I am nervous to go out the first time as being a noob sucks.

anyways, I got the smart parts ion, clamp feedneck, 16" cp classic barrel, 3000 compressed air tank, velocity jr with speedfeed attachment, 4 pods and a carry pack, a vforce mask, a paintball caddy, and an unopened box of 500 paintballs.

edit: Had the box for the gun/manual/parts and all, also box for the velocity jr

got it all for 150.00

My name is Bryan im 16, and I'm from Chicago Illinois, I go to CPX, ok fields crap overpriced paint, Fox River occasionally. I'm a painballaholic. I can't get enough of it. I have trouble finding a job and it's hard to play. I have used a Spyder my first 2 times besides rental playing, and a High Voltage my other 2 times. I haven't been able to paint for a while. I want to get a better set up so once I get a job I go more often. I'm planning on a DM6, and later upgrading it and keeping it for a while.

Hey, Jeff here. I've been playing off and on for the past 5-6 year, but this year I have been getting a little more serious about PB. I been picking up some equipment for myself and my son, so I've been mostly lurker so far, just trying to get a handle on the various equipment.
