I hear that. Well, sort of; for me, it's essentially the opposite. I won't get into it here though; that's not a subject I'd like to discuss publicly. If you're curious to know what's what, feel free to send me a message and ask.

Anyways.

The other night, I had a dream about paintball, and ever since, I've been watching YouTube videos, looking at the newest products and reviews, checking out how the leagues and teams are doing, etc. It really got me thinking back to when I was still playing, and honestly, I wish that I hadn't given up as easily as I did. Life got rough, and I just crumbled like a wet piece of paper...

I realize that my dreams of turning paintball into my career were stupid, because being a professional paintball player doesn't pay much at all, but that doesn't mean it's not possible to do it for a "living." Most professional players either work within the industry, or they have jobs outside of the sport that are flexible enough to allow them to still play at the professional level, and keep the job. They might not be the richest folks in the world, but they certainly get to do what they love, and none of them seem to be living the life of the penniless either.

Maybe it's just stupid nostalgia; I don't know. The more I think about how much passion I had for the sport, the more I wish I could go back a couple of years and stop myself from quitting altogether. Of course, it wasn't just the financial problems that were hurting my initiative; it was the fact that I couldn't seem to find a team that I could really "gel" with, and that probably has a lot to do with where I live. If I lived somewhere else; somewhere with more paintball, maybe things would have been different. I don't know...

Perhaps it was a good thing that I quit when I did, because maybe now I'm mature enough to turn things around. It sounds stupid, but maybe if I wanted to get back into the sport enough, I could turn everything else around; find a way to make some money, get another car, and gradually start getting back into the sport, and focus on getting better and getting myself out there. Then again, maybe it's all nostalgia like I said before, or a phase that will pass as quickly as it came along.

I've always had the love for the sport, but things never seemed to fall into place for me.

you guys are lucky enought to be born in US and, like you say, work in the paintball industry or have a job flexible enought to let you practise and travel. In my situation it is really harder since the sport is way more expensive and we dont have that pro players or tournaments down here. If i was born in US i would never give up paintball that easy, if you really like it i think you should do everything thats possible to get your *** back into the field. i would be so sad for not waking up and going to the field in that sunny sunday morning practise, that feeling is awesome

Either you completely misunderstood my post, or I'm completely misunderstanding yours.

the point was that you already lucky enough to be born in US and if it is/was your dream to bececome a pro player you shouldn't give it up becous '' things never seemed to fall into place ' for you. There are tons of players who lives abrod that will never have this chance but if they move to US.
And hey LA is pretty ****ed up right now, they will never have a good squad when they won theyr last psp series

paintball is big in the US and unlike other countries, we have a lot of money backing it. although it doesn't seem like much, we pay a lot less than other countries do
