Oh hotels and paintball players. I have had some ridiculous things happen to me while at world cup...I used to work for Kee action/Empire and had pleasure of playing for nothing anywhere I went. Thats when all my friends got out of the sport so it was just me raking in the free stuff which was a bummer because only reason I played was to do well in tournaments and hanging out with my friends.

I still have so much paintball crap and cases of paint I need to get rid of. I have a bunch of work people who want to go play so I cant wait till temperatures get a little warmer and I can go smoke their noob asses haha.

And if anyone wants to buy a new infamous bob long victory for super cheap shoot me a pm I am friends with guys on team and told them I would help em out.

Soul,
If you are looking to go to best fields Cpx sports in chicago area is the premier field in midwest. it is a great establishment that I highly recommend.

I used to play paintball but I didn't really have money rolling in so it was quite expensive for me.

Yeah it definitely can be an expensive sport. Very expensive. Paintball can make some of even the most expensive snowboard gear look like it costs nothing

Yeah, it's crazy how just the GUNS can go over 1 grand easily.
And then you have to worry about a tank,hopper,mask, new barrel AND new board?

i used to play paintball, and for how expensive it is, its not worth it unless you can play like once a week. airsoft is better i think because you can get a really good gun for like 300, and other shit isnt that much
