    I like to play, but it's pretty expensive. I normally just end up renting a Tippman 98 with a J&J Ceramic barrel. :)

    I have a Tippman 98 Custom in Camo - with an upgraded Tippman Werks 14" barrel.

    I usually use Zap pb's. My local Wal-Mart will sell a 2000 count case for $30. This particular brand/case sells for $50 elsewhere.

    Actually, I'm paintballing Monday (Labor Day).

    I used to play very seriously around the New England area. I've had more guns than I can even remember. I stopped about a year and a half ago to take up bass playing more seriously. I kept two guns then and some gear but have been selling it off lately (to afford mroe basses!). Right now I'm down to
    2004 Dye Matrix
    z boarded egg, halo, revvy
    68/4500 Java
    Ultralite and a couple other barrels (I don't even know anymore)
    Two JT masks and a Raven something or other.
    all redz gear, like pakc and such (was formerly sponsered by redz)

    hmm.. I've never had any trouble with them. None have broke on me etc.

    Different strokes, etc., I guess.

    I was a fan of Smart Parts personally. Had a nice Impulse with some extras (vert. reg, extended drop forward and delrin bolt and assorted barrels) and a stock '00 Shocker. I loved the Shocker for accuracy and near zero ball breakage.... gotta love the closed bolt operation. I bet the new ones kick some serious a$$ with the slim profile and whatnot. I just had those 2 guns and then a Redz Vertical 4 harness and two 20 oz Co2 tanks. I got out of paintball merely because of the price of paint. Playing speedball got to be expensive if you layed on the trigger for 3 or 4 games. :rolleyes:

  12. I have some paintball equipment, but I don't use it much anymore. I have a spyder Imagine '04 marker with a 20oz CO2 tank and a JT spectra thermal mask.
