I was really into paintball after in my first year of college back in 2008. Like a lot of starting players I had an ion for my first gun and had every upgrade possible done to it before I decided to get a real gun. I bought a brand new 08 ego and played with it about two years before my friends went broke and couldn't afford to play anymore. Having nobody to play with wasn't fun and 2012 rolled around and I hadn't touched my gun since 2010 so I decided to sell all my paintball equipment including my prized mint ego. I'v regretted selling it every since and finally got the paintball fever again and decided to get back into the game. I sold it to an adult guy over craigslist and couldn't find his number but did find his email so I emailed him in December and asked if he would like to sell the gun back but didn't hear back from him so I went ahead and bought another ego. A couple of days ago he saw my email and gave me a call saying he only used it 3-4 times and would like to sell it back so I am very excited that I have my original ego back.
It doesn't look like he used it at all and could still pass for new today. I'v regretted selling it for 3 years now and love that it is still in mint condition.
