so at that rate he worked for one day to give you that gift, and if hes making more or less you'll know how the math changes but id keep the gift and just never pull some bull**** over on the kid
- Yeah, they own a very profitable company. Their immediate family makes in the ball park of 10-20 million annually. His dad has like 25 cars, super cars and classics, as well as boats, motorcycles, small planes and a G6 private jet, which we took to vegas last summer for our birthdays (2 days apart, in July 29th and the 31st: mine). It's nothing to them, it would be comparable to me paying for pizza one night.

Yeah? I think after all the bad things that have happened, he was trying to help me to get out of my depressed funk. He knew paintball was the only thing that made feel like I belonged somewhere, our mutual friend that introduced me to nich (wealthy kid) was my best-friend Michael (the deceased one). He knows what paintball means to me and the team is like my family, and that after my gear was stolen and my company closing. It'd be hard for me to get a chance to get back into the game, any time soon. Although soon, is when I needed to have paintball the most.

The hardest part of being humble and charitable is accepting the good will of others. Keep it, take good care of it, and frequently let his family know how much it means to you.

If I were you I would go to their house and bring them out to the nicest steakhouse around you and spend some money on them to repay the favor. Use what she bought you with her son so that she knows ur grateful for the gesture and will put it to good use. And if that doesn't work just strip down stick a banana up ur *** and spread whip cream all over itself and go over late at nite

His family makes him move around alot as well, so he hasn't not made many close friends.

He decided he wanted to play paintball again as a hobby, he quit at about 15, while i continued playing. He decided he needed a hobby after our friends all become sober. I went through the remaining gear i had, we are the same basic size & weight, he could wear the same size clothes. I gave him some old new in the bag team pants for him to use and spare jerseys amd an old legacy one, hooked him up with an old venomwear og head band the brown,a nd a faded sandan, as well as a old 2 xl legacy jersey with the light blue proto, that was nick shows ( i think it's nick) i'd have to ask him. As well as a old JT racing teal to dark blue. On a all black proflex, mirrored lens. I had most all of this (besides my spare og gear) in the boxes new, due to crazy deals i got on stuff like the team spare jerseys that were for sale at the local shop we ran for team funding for the next event.

I've been helping him and since i picked out a set up everything that he needed after i gave him soft gear (mask, headgear, clothing, practice jerseys, a pro jersey to practice in, and team long-sleeves of ours, some from 3-6 years ago, so he's got the same stuff his friends his age on the team have and wear to local events. He told his mom about my gun and gear getting stolen from my gear bag in my college house. I had to rent a gun when he and i played at a local field, a few times over the last week. I mentioned his family is wealthy, and to be nice his mom did this for me, because it would be comparable to a normal income family buying pizza for their kid and his friend. I picked out new gear (his mom refused to buy used) a dye nt (free) rotor, a ninja tank 68 45oo w/ adjustable reg, a Tadao USB Dye NT OLED board, Violent Series Scythe Trigger, and a Carbon Fiber !5' Dye UL Barrel with a .684 back and a .688 back with a boom box ( since the nt has a ul also).

I basically picked out the gear that I wanted and kept it under the 1,5oo his mom told me too. He was slick about asking if I'd honestly shot this gun, since it was a 2o1o. I told him yeah, and that the free rotor helps out too. That i planned on getting it once i get another 5oo saved up to do so, and that I"d put his board and trigger in and set up his gun. I agreed, and he said
if you get that gun will you should me how to work on it?" I replied "sure". I didn't know that his mom was the one who asked him if he wanted to do this for me, since my gear was stolen as a told some of you guys. As well in part as a late birthday gift, and as well for helping him and his mom out while that dad is at their other home for work in LA. His mother went ahead and ordered 2 of EVERYTHING i suggested to build him a good gun with the gun platform he picked out (Dye Nt - 2o1o). I wanted a Dye NT as well.

I can't believe that they did that for me, it should be here monday. Mine is being sent to my house even. I"m so grateful for this, I feel weird to accept it. My friends done things like get me shoes when we were at the mall, because his mom tells him to "go take your friends and pick you boys out some clothes, for you to go out tonight, get some nikes from footlocker"- we both have shoes collections of all air force ones, all shapes and colors, we both get called women by our respective families for liking shoes so much!

All of this paintball gear as a gift, is a whole other level though, and make me un-easy, he says don't worry and "dude, it's really nothing to her to do, please just enjoy" and his mom said "it was well worth your help to nick and I, this week". I'm torn I would love to have a set up and have this 1,ooo I've saved up so far just pocket and feel rich kinda. Lol. I could get a Dm11 with free billy wing bolt or free rotor, or another 2o1o Dye-NT w/free rotor. What do you guys think i should do.

A. ) Take it, take awesome care of it, set up my friends marker which I'd have done regardless. Show my appreciation and thank her, sincerely repeatedly as well as helping do anything thing AT ALL she needs me to do to show my thanks.

---------------------------------OR---------------------------------------------------

B.) Take the package, and sign but do not open, and next time I"m over their house leave it on the table when I go over to help her on Monday afternoon. Explain to her that I greatly appreciate the gesture but I fee; un-comfortable for spending that much money on me for anything, that she can just get me some pizza for doing yard work or some beers and just make me a home cooked dinner. I know this is the right thing to do morally, but i really want the gun and while jobless this is the only way to get it atm.



The Setup She got him and I both:

2o1o Dye NT: Graphite Gloss Grey with Gloss Black Accents


Dye Rotor: Grey (Rotor was free w/ Dye NT 2o1o purchase @ $999)

Tadao Tech. Mikko Huttunen Yakuza Series OLED USB Board

CF Boomstick 15' Series: Dust Teal and Dust Lime Green Tips, a .684 and a .688 set of CF UL backs, including the stock UL, that makes 6 peices- 3 full barrels, so i got the boom box to hold them all.

Ninja 68' 45oo' Tank w/ Adj. Reg ( is this tank shaped the way the CP bottles everyone shot in like 08, if not which tanks are?)

Violent Seires Syncthe Trigger

^
The setup that is going to be at my door Monday for FREE, as well as my friend's door for him, thanks to his mother. I've been on break for a reason some of you guys know, and I'm finally back, after shaking off the cleats from 09. My last marker was a Droid, with OLED and ul, and the same trigger. I loved that gun's feel, and I'd have gott en a clone but those were no-where on line for sale, NIB. Do you think since I've always been a spoil gun man, loving SFT/NXT shockers, The DMs and the PM7, the Droids and Clones, and Even the Victories (although not really a spool-valve). I"ll be happy with the NT? Are all those upgrades i got for it, all i could really wanted or asked for to make the 2o1o NT the best it could be? also where can i get the 45* ASA like the 2o11 Nt has coming out of the side of the Hyper3 ?


TLDR: Bees!!! !! ! ! BEES, EVERYWHERE !!!! OMG they keep ****ING stinging me, it hurts, SO MANY BEEEESSSSSSSS!

I've had a lot of nice guns given to me from a wealthy friend and I'm always grateful. At first I was uncomfortable but then I realized how much money it saved me and then was okay with it. Plus I promised if I ever got out of paintball or wanted to sell it my buddy would get all the money.

Goddamn I wish I was going to cup. Not having a car is killing me, without funding or an actual field only played a few times with the OU team.



I miss grinding it out every weekend.
