I think it mostly depends when you start and how serous you are about it.

Really , I believe it should be 14. Way back when 05, The DBS Kidz started playing, all of them were 11-13 years old. PSP had their Young Guns division, they did well enough to get into Greg Hastings Video game and made the cover of Paintball Sports Magazine, I found this http://dbskidzpaintball.webs.com/teamhighlights.htm from a old website. A couple of the players are now playing professionally -Dusty Cort and Nate Schroeder.

My kids started at 12, but 14 was when they really caught on to how to play well.

I'd say 16. After age 16, most people begin to mature into adults.

it honestly depends on skill level, Marcello Margott and Alex Berdnikov played PRO at a young age not counting when they started kicking butt competitively

I put 15 and younger because I am 13 and I believe I am at prime age to start (Even though I started at 12)

forget paintball. at 18, you can enlist and shoot to kill for real as well as vote for the leader of the free world. so no, i wouldn't consider 18 a young gun at all.

i reff games, and i see all ages out on the field. I compare there skill lvl along with the age. Most of the time its players under 18 to 12 that want to play in the pro's, so i see any age under 18 to be young guns. But its our job as experienced players to make them pro's.
