i start working at age of 14 and my parents in the beginning used to flip the hell up when i start wasting it on paintball. They just told me to do not spend that much money on paintball but they never said that they wont let me. Now they are ok since i took them to one local tourney ( wich my team won ) and they were pretty amazed how that went. My dad tought on the first time i would take my gun and just shoot randon people on the streets lol. My dad still kinda angry since it is lots of money but my mom accepts it. Maybe you should try to bring them to the field and maybe they can see it is a sport, an activity good for your health, something much batter then staying home playing videogames.
alright got football practise in the next couple hours and i need to assembly my helmet, i took the protections apart to spray paint it and now i cant back it togheter.
lol idk if it is hard or iam dumb
