Paintball eh? Not a bad "sport". Too bad for me though, the nearest paintball place is like an hours drive from me (I live in Australia)

OMG They were the days. Me and my mates bought our own guns and balls and used to play in the fields and woods in out village. I used to have a PGP (i think thats what it was called) oh yes here it is. Pump action, but only holds about 10 balls.

Might have to take it up again.

Ohh and i love the phooooomp sound they make. :D

I used to paintball a lot around where I live. I never went into tournaments or anything, but I just did it with friends.

We play a lot during the Spring & Fall. Summer is way too hot in Texas. We have our own field. It's not very large but it holds about 10 people well. I have a Tippman Model 98 gun but I'm looking to upgrade soon.

I used to play a lot when I was 12/13. Now I am 16 and haven't played for years due to the fact that the whole day I worked out to cost about ?45 minimum.

Used to play, quit because of the cost factor (have to pay car insurance and all that good stuff now). We had a team that was pretty good. We brought home 3rd place at our last tourney. I had a Vision Impulse with some upgraded parts. Our site is down right now but here it is http://absolutehavoc.rocks.it/

I do every now and then. Not enough to own my equipment, but enough to know the fields like the back of my hand.

I'm not the guy that runs into enemy territory like crazy, I'll camp farther back and pick people off as they try to get my flag when playing cap the flag -- in elimination I'll camp near a high-traffic area :)

I'm pretty tall so any other way I'd be a sitting duck, easy target.

you should get a "normal" gun than using a sidearm like the zeus.unless you have a bottom line and hopper adapter,you'd have to change 12grams often and paintballs.i paintball myself,tippmann model 98 custom. ;)

Yeah, I thought about a normal gun, but I liked the size of the zeus, and reloading the co2 and paintballs actaully isnt as bad as one may think. Though Ive played with a 98 Custom before. Very nice gun too. I just hate hoppers because they always seem to get in the way. I s'pose its all personal preference though. Im thinking about buying this when it comes out though, if the price tag isnt too hefty:
