I'd definitely be playing if I could afford to, and had a mode of transportation.

I think I can afford a lot of what I want just because I am not wasting time and money on playing paintball anymore

That definitely makes sense; paintball is an expensive sport. But to me, it's worth it.

To me it was until I started playing tournaments. But then not playing tournament ball didn't excite me

I wouldn't mind playing some woodsball or scenarios, but I'd prefer to stick to tournament-style play. I save the Mil-Sim for the airsoft field.

I like playing woodsball, but I always felt that if I was going to play in the woods that I would rather do airsoft cause it seems more realistic to me. But i never got into airsoft cause I never felt like buying a good gun and not being able to use it around the neighborhood cause I'd get the cops called on me

I started playing paintball in the woods (like most people do), but once I got a taste for speedball, I stopped playing woodsball and started getting into airsoft. It's a hell of a lot more realistic, and in my opinion, a lot more fun than woodsball as well. You're definitely right about the potential to get the cops called on you though; airsoft guns like exactly like real firearms, so people get 911 crazy.

Ya. I had some out in my yard and had the cops called on me. Yet when I walk around with my shotgun which is a real firearm nobody does **** lol

And I have always been a speedball player. Played it my first time I went paintballing. Granted I did play some scenario type stuff, but whenever I have been to the field it has been focused around speedball

I was once detained (cuffed and everything) for carrying my airsoft gun on my shoulder after playing at a friend's house. Even though there's a bright orange tip on the end of it, they thought it was real and brought me down at gunpoint. They claim that "criminals have been painting real firearms with orange tips to fool police officers," which I think is probably bull****, because most criminals aren't that smart, lol.

I just can't get past the whole honor system reliance in Airsoft. Not that I feel like most people would cheat, but it's so hard to feel those pellets if you're wearing any decent amount of clothing.

There's an Erie County Sheriff's Office right across the street from my house, so that's where they took me. They brought me down at gunpoint, cuffed me, and took me over to the office for questioning. Once they found out it wasn't real, they grilled me about how stupid I was to carry it around without it being in a case (which I always use now that I have one). One of them almost got slapped though, because my mom came over to the station and when she started arguing with him about how they didn't need to be as rough as they did, he told her "You're lucky your son's not a corpse, ma'am. If he had made one wrong move before we had secured the weapon and handcuffed him, he would have been shot. We're trained to protect ourselves and the lives of civilians with lethal force if necessary."

I swear, I've never seen my mom more ready to slap the **** out of someone.

You'll always feel the impact. It might not hurt, but you'll still feel that you've been hit. That, and it's hard to miss the "THWACK" sound that it makes.

Sig links are fine but don't purposely direct people to it as it constitutes corporate spam.

Unless it is officially sanctioned by pbn, it really can't be advertised all over.

Pb event? Your local state forum and physically connected States (nearby events sticky threads) can have a post dedicated to the event.
