36. First time was a company outing. I bought a 98 custom the next week! 7 years later I played my first PSP tournament. 6 years after that I still get this big *** grin on my face every time I'm crouched down with my barrel tip touching the starting bunker, staring at the snake feeder, and waiting for the horn to blow.

I Was 13 when I started playing and played steadily until I was 20, took an almost 5 year break and am now playing again. Played PSP, NPPL, local series but started in the woods. Moved all over the country, played all over, and loved every minute of it.

I was 10 when I first played at a friends birthday party. Since then, I have been playing every chance I get with my own gear.

First time I played paintball was in my cousins woods. We built the course from the ground up with sticks, plywood, and anything else we could find. Since everyone moved away it's still there but has decayed.
