Paintball Vs. Car

Just wondering who else chooses to drive a piece of crap car to continue playing? Thinking bout giving up paintball to have a nicer car. Just wondering if any other players have this same thing going on.

This is kind of a matter of personal choice. If a car is more important to you than paintball then choose the car, otherwise choose paintball. Im one of those guys thats into both, but since I use a car more than I play I go for cheaper gear so I can have a decent car. Ive never owned a gun with a higher price than 500-600.

if you mean "borrow" a family member's car then yes I do put paintball in front of being able to drive. sometimes you get really lucky and they fill the tank.

but then you need to return the favor some way.

I drive a ****ty car so that I can afford paintball. I figure it would cost me x amount of dollars for a car payment and full coverage insurance a month. I spend that on paintball instead. That way I am only taking money away from me and not my wife and kids.

Car over paintball for sure. Just get a cheaper gun, play less, use a pump etc etc.

You will use a car almost every day and you play paintball maybe once a week.

But in the end, that is just my opinion. I say do what makes you happy.

Thats a relative opinion slay. If you make 12,000 a year and have bills to pay then 50-100 bucks an outing is generally above your means. If youre a neurosurgeon then yes, you probably have bigger expenses than a few hundred or even thousand a year for a hobby.... like getting those paintball dents out of your cayenne

If I gave up paintball to buy a car, I wouldn't have anywhere to go anymore so it would be kind of pointless.

just work harder or more and have enough money for both. i know this can be done, but for you youngsters that is a little more difficult. i miss my nice car i totaled it so i had to buy a junker till i can find what i want.

I know I'm probably in the minority here, but when you factor in that I bought my gf a working car for a grand, spending that much (OR MORE) on a toy is just beyond my ability of reasoning.

This shouldn't even be a question. A decent car should be a priority. Your a moron if your that addicted to a game. Probably a disorder you need to get examined. How many years have you been playing? 1...2? I've been playing for 13 years and would take a nice vehicle over a day of play anytime.

^^That's one opinion.

Another is that it doesn't matter what you drive, as long as it's reliable and safe. If it breaks down all the time, then yes, you need something better.

But people that think they need to drive an Audi or BMW make me laugh.

It doesn't matter what you drive. Nobody cares.

I drive a 99 Nissan Frontier pickup, which has been very reliable. I don't need a 2008+ vehicle because mine works fine, and was paid off a long time ago. More money for doing things I really love...

I say do whatever you want the monies, frankly because you only live once. So might as well make use of it while you can. Money's not going to do much good just sitting around, now is it?

A car is more practical, but paintball is more fun. There's always an inbetween that you can have. A decent car and decent gear.

Money = Does not always make people happy

I would rather do what I love, and live in a small house.. then having a Job I hate and driving around in a nice car to be some one that I am not.
