Getting Back into in and this time I'm bringing my own fireteam

So my kids decided at the same time to get into paintball. I pulled out my old gear and did not expect them to catch the bug so quick. So now Im scrambling to find decent gear for them and hopefully myself since everyone is shooting +10/13BPS. looking for any kid friendly groups that meet up at least once a month would be great to link with once we get our **** together.

Try copy/pasting the above into the designated state sub-forum on PBN here that you reside in. If you're going to get any bites, that will likely be the best place and people to connect with for that! Cheers, and welcome back!

Hey all, name's Mike. I'm 39 years old and I started paintball when I was 12. My first outing was with my dad and the fire dept league team they had, so Midwest and woods ball and I fell in love with the game ever since. My first marker was my old man's Sheridan, (yes from the age of the dinosaurs). My second marker was a 98 custom, been a diehard Tippmann fan ever since. Third marker was a project salvo, much heavier then I ever needed and wrong gun to have after I moved to socal. Fourth and fifth markers are the stormer, which I keep stock and the Cronus which I'm modifying through 3d printing and various upgrades to solidify my mech gunsmithing skills. When it's finished it will be my magnum opus of paintball gunsmithing, Cronus Prime. I look forward to having awesome discussions with you all.

Hello, I'm Evan. I've played before but just recently made it a semi-regular (once a month) thing. I want to get out of rentals and older markers really catch my eye. What do I need to look for in an older marker to know it's a good deal/up to date on maintenance?

Okie coming back

So I'm not exactly new to the sport but after coming back from a 15 year hiatus I might as well be! A lot has changed and I'm looking forward to getting back into the sport.

I'd like to work up to some local tournament play in the future and fully expect to get curb stomped by kids less than half my age for a while (I'm 36) but it'll be fun and I'll learn.

I appreciate the info and I like the general attitude here- just get out and play.

Thanks guys!

I was a young broke teenager back then, Headshotted. Getting back into the sport again with the money to buy the gear I want and afford field paint by the case has greatly improved my time paintballing now. I was never into Mcarterbrown at the time, but I wasn't hardcore into paintballing back in '06.

Paint itself is kinda meh unless your paying for premium stuff, but, I've found MCB to be more active than here. That being said, I went and played pump all day saturday and had a blast with a bunch of recballers and rentals. Glad you are coming back, I played tourneyball back in 06-10, so I know whatcha mean about having the flashy electros.

I'm having a pretty good time at my local field, I feel like the October heat wave is keeping some players at home, but we've got a really good group out at Wacky Warriors west location. That being said, I feel like there are too many fields that have popped up during the 00's and that's what is dividing players. Back when I played, the greater st. louis areas had 2-3 major parks to play at, and now we have 10 or 12. I'm having a good time, though!

I'm trying to get my old brass together before winter sets in and shuts down our outdoor fields. Glad you have a mostly healthy community!
