yes paintball is a troubled industry because of people like me.... i was giving the kid a hard time because he posted his entire gear set-up and then made sure to include the second post as if it would boost his credibility even more... he took my comment and threw it back at me which is kinda funny and it would have ended there. get over it.
here i will include some helpful comments:

If you can find a field you are relatively close to talk to the owner and see if he would like help reffing games or doing grunt work. You're a bit to young to be a paid worker but doing this might get you a few kickbacks (less money) at the field. Sponsors come in time and getting a real "sponsor" requires a lot of hard work, or getting to know the right people, not really something you need to be worrying about right now. The less you spend on your gear set up the more you have to spend on paint which will be the bulk of your expense. Paintball is quite expensive to get into and its a big part of why alot of kids dont make it to the tournament scene. Also as for the everyone thinking they are better than everyone else... this is really funny but incredibly true. Go hang out at the fields find the best kid there i.e. the kid wearing the most expensive **** *joke* and watch him play, figure out what hes doing right and whats hes doing wrong. Most players are incredibly nice and if you ask them they will show you what you need to be doing, yes even me. The only way the sport gets cheaper is by you getting better.
