i'd like to get involved in paintball: how?

ever since th first game i played i wanted to get involved seriously in paintball. i really like it, and i only play one other sport (golf), so i have the time. i'm looking to get a job at a grocery store soon, so i'll hopefully have the money. since february (when i got my gun), i've played twice. i'd REALLY like to get involved in this sport a lot more. so, how do i? i don't really need more stuff, for i have never been to a field. thanks

here is my stuff, if you're wondering
m98c
flatline barrel
camo clothes
JT premere 2k1 gloves
JT flex 7 mask
JT sock hat
2 12 oz. CO2 (one is broken, so i guess only 1)
lapco d/f
12 vt. revvy (clear)

thanks

hey thats not a bad setup for a new player.

first tip: dont asess yourself by your equipment, do it by eliminations.

second tip: get some friends into the game, start a small rookie team, find some local tourneys to go to. If you can get this everything will fall into place.

first, start by seeing if there are any teams around you, or if anyone wants to start a team. practice up, and save up to enter some tourneys.

ummm...

check, kinda; last time we played, everyone said we wanted to start a team, but they said they didn't have the money for it. maybe they'll get jobs and get the money for it if we play some more....

Quote:
find some local tourneys to go to
i know of one local tourney at the local field, but it doesn't start 'til may or june; maybe if we play sometime between then, i'll ask them if they want to enter. we probabliy won't play until april, because it's winter. although it's snowed a total of about half a foot as opposed to the normal of about 6 feet here in the midwest (it's been a warm winter), we probabily won't play until spring.

also, would walk-ons at the local field help at all? maybe i can pursuade my "team" to join me. thanks to "BunkerThis" and "Raines8416" for the info

no prob man. yeah walk on games owuld be good, if oyu got your team to go play together on a walk-on, then you guys could work on working together as a team. also see if there are any other teams around you who wanna skirmish, or practish together, that would be cool too
