This like my 4th time playing paintball, man I'm haveing a blast despite all the welts I get each time I play. I have a stock steel iceblue spyder xtra. It's a great gun. It has not chopped once since I got it. I use draxxus dusk paint ruby/pearl w/ white fill. Paintball is the only sport I will play. All others I don't like, they are boring. I try to go play every other weekend. I have a cousin who plays w/ me off and on. Acually he is the one who got me into pb in the first place. Well I don't have much more to say about paintball besides it's fun. I don't think there many girls who play, but I'm glad I'm one of them!
