Splat Action in Mollala, Oregon. Started playing there in 1988. It's still there. I haven't played there in years.

My woods down by the mississippi river in St. Louis, MO. Played my first half dozen outings there before going to a real field, which was Wacky Warriors East. I still enjoy grabbing some friends and playing the same woods I first played back in 2004.

Skirmish Paintball in PA, back in 1992. May have played a year or three earlier, but that's the first time I recall clearly. Played recreationally through about 2002/3. Just started playing again this Spring and am having an absolute blast.

First time I played was at some field in Huston, Texas with a rental Prolite around 2000.

I was hooked and bought my first gun shortly after, an Avalon Diamond GT. I mainly played at a field in Powhatan, Virginia. I think it was called X-factor.
Gonna scare you up and shoot ya, cause Mr. Charlie told me so.

My first paintball adventure took place in 1988 in Laurel, Delaware at Survival Range. I was a member of a local BBS (geek talk), and we had organized a meet and greet paintball game and had about 12 of us show up. I was hooked after the first game we played. I became friends with the owner, and within a month I had bought a PMII with auto-trigger and joined his 5-man team, the Survival Rangers. We traveled all along the Mid-Atlantic back in the 80's playing over in Maryland against the original Bad Company, as well as numerous times at Gino Postorovio's field in Mantua NJ. I still play to this day (speedball at OXCC). As for Survival Range, I ended up taking over the operation for a couple of years in the early 90's and then turned it back over to the original owner as I was too busy with work and college. It officially shut down around 2000/2001.

We had a great relationship with Gino, as he brought his sponsored team and semi tractor trailer to several of our tournaments. Every Christmas he used to send us wine and cheese, and one year he sent me the Matchbox Tractor Trailer which I still have.

Started in the woods behind my cousin's house in SE Michigan, played in various woods locations around the state. The first field I went to was Hell Survivors. Played at Atomix, Furtureball, and other indoor fields.

Right at the cutoff stage of 1999. Woodsball in Sloughouse California at a now closed Action Paintball Games. I was still in elementary school at the time and convinced my parents to take me.

I still have a picture somewhere in my old computers of me 'winning' the game by hanging the flag. I think I was using a rental vertical co2 feed spyder clone of some sort.

My very first field I played was blast camp paintball in Hobart indiana. It was such a long time ago but I was tagged along with a few family members who I thought were badasses or they had some military training making them badasses also. I'm pretty sure they had bought a lot of 5 or 6 brass eagle marauders I think, co2 and gravity fed. It didn't matter to me being so new anything that shot and kept shooting was great for me. A wonderful experience that had me hooked ever since, it's still open and I plan on getting out there this year as many times as possible because it notes to far away.

My first time was with a church group at some woods ball field in northern IN in 1997. The next year my Dad bought some used Tippmanns and Spyders from a work friend and I started playing semi regularly at Canal Family Fun Center/Catfish Lake in Logansport IN. I enjoyed many years playing rec/woodsball and speedball there but its closed now.

I also occasionally played at other fields such as Blast Factory in Kokomo, IN (closed) and Paintball Barn which is still running today!

Good old days.

I first started playing paintball with my brother and cousins back in 1998. The area was a mixture of open fields and thick monte in south Texas. It very soon progressed into speed-ball.
