I dont get to play too often. During the summer i play 2 or 3 times a month but during the other seasons i only get to play once a month. Some months i dont even get the chance to play. It sucks. I would play every weekend if i could

Once a week pretty much, with a weekend off here and there. During the times of year it is not frozen in the NE.

Don't buy gear for the hell of it. Go out and play, and while playing if something is continuously annoying you, then go out and buy the gear that fixes that. A lot of people disagree, but I say don't buy gear to prevent a possible problem, only buy gear to fix one that already exists. Otherwise you'll end up with a ****ton of gear that you don't actually value for what it does.

But then again, I really like shiny things. A lot.

Once to twice a month. Lately, not very much, as school is starting, but I hope to pick it back up when I start a paintball club.

Once a month is often enough to have your own gear, but i wouldn't recommend dropping a grand or anything.

I play once a month on average. Sometimes more, sometimes less.

Depends on my work schedule - sometimes I get to play every weekend, sometimes once every two or three months. BUT - when I do play (regardless of the frequency) I still like to play with MY equipment.

Depending on what you have now, you could pick up an Ego 7/8 for a reasonable amount of money and have a great gun! I have owned many types of guns, and it seems like Ego's are one of the best when it comes to infrequent use/longer periods of not being used.
