What is unfair about a parent that has money, teaches their child the value of a dollar, and gets them the gear they wish?

I worked very hard to get where I am in life, if at 10 my kid wants a $1500 paintball gun and I have overpaid him for his chores. He's going to have it. Be mad at your parents for your life as a child and don't look down on another's.

Doesn't bother me. That's why paintball its an adult sport. Kids can't afford all the good stuff. That's why I'm glad i didn't get into it till i was an adult.

Most of the regulars at mine are kids my age. The only adults I see there on a regular basis are the owner and field sponsored team manager.

Define adult. I'm 19 and I still can't grow a beard. Also the majority of paintball players that I knew, like myself, quit paintball when they went to college.

It is envy

No different than when you see a high school kid driving a new BMW. You wonder wtf the parents are thinking, and wondering how I get one of those.

I built a 1k dollar gun for my son and he is too young to drive. I'd call it my most expensive pump build yet. I had a blast piecing it together, hanging out with Carter when he milled and polished, then i Got to put ittogether. I already have my favorite gun that I play with, so I gave it to him as his first gun and he got a kick out of it and likes to pump it up with me.

Did he earn it? Straight A's for years, maxed out standardized tests and enjoys multiple sports. I'd say yep.

I don't care.
Young or old, I have a little laugh inside everytime I take out someone with a couple of shots with my automag, who is spraying paint with their $1k+ showpiece.

If there is a kid with thousands of dollars of gear I don't mind it. I do mind when the kid gets mad, because he got shot out and throws his brand new geo/rotor/ninja onto the concrete.

I really don't care who's playing as long as there are people there playing. The only thing that gets me is when somebody has a bad attitude and is being a dick about stupid stuff. As long as people are having fun that's all that matters.

people get jealous that some person 10 years younger than them owns the gun they've been drooling over on their PC for months. IMO, if you're in your 20's and you're getting mad at some kid 3/5's your age over a gun, I thin the kid isn't the one with maturing to do. There's something to be said about being happy with what you already have.

Now, it's not the kids who own nice stuff that piss people off, it's the kids who flaunt it. No body likes a braggart

Stop hating on other people just because their parents are more successful than your parents.

Thats life. The person getting jealous of the kid is the one that needs to grow up.

I'm fine with the kids with their gear. After all, it's about getting the youth in to the sport. The only thing I don't like is their attitude. Yes, they think their good, but when you put them on equal grounds, they figure out they are not as good. Even if I hate them, I still tell them to take it easy on rentals, give them some tips, etc.

If the kid turns out to be a spoiled brat that looks down on everyone and doesn't respect his gear, hate away.
Pure jealousy
