What to bring?

We had one of these threads earlier, but I'm not really sure where it went. So I am going to make a new one. Lets try compile a list of what equipment to bring with you when you go paintballing, and two little lists for additional equipment to bring for just speedball, or just for woodsball/outlawball, since you need different equipment depending on which one, but there are some pieces of equipment that you need for both, like your gun.


What to bring for paintball?
-Marker (gun)
-Mask
-hopper
-elbow
-tank
-paint
-screwdriver(s)
-athletic shoes/cleats
-cloth
-oil
-spray bottle (in case you get gogged)
-Sports bottle filled with tap water (for cleaning)
-Paper towels/a towel (for cleaing)
-Squeegee
-Allen Wrenches (Hex set)
-Complete change of clothes
-Extra set of batteries (gun and loader if applicable)
-spare o-rings
-towel (to set your gun on)
-teflon tape/plumbers tape (in case you need to fix any leaks)
-pocket knife
-Spare lenses (in case you notice a crack from your original one or get gogged)
-Barrel plug/condom (unless you're renting and they supply it for you)
-Gun Manual (for various repairs)
-batteries(9v for revvies, other misc for mask fans, markers etc)
-Burst disc's
-springs
-hammers
-hose/barbs(cocker)
-Macroline/braided SS
-fittings
-a silicon grease(shocker lube)
-CUP (For future prosperity!)
-Harness and pods


special equipment for just speedball or for playing at an organized field
-Money (for food, paint, air etc)
-ID (for various reasons)

special equipment for just woodsball/outlawball
-camo clothes/ghille suit
-Bugspray
-water
-food (lots and lots of food!)
-trash bags (to clean up any messes)
-First aid kit(very important)
-Chronograph
-a tarp (in case it rains)
-cell phone (for emergencies)
-Duct tape (for temporary repairs)
-rope (for temporary repairs)
-hammer and nails (to fix broken bunkers)
-Portable table(To lay your gear on it)


My goal here is to make a list to help the new paintballers going to a field for the first time or outlawballing for the first time know what to bring, or even to give the more seasoned players a few new ideas about simple things to bring that can better their paintball experience. Just add it in this thread and I'll edit it into the list.

TONES (or gallons) of water and food! believe me on this! you'll play so much better if you have stuff to eat and drink

bring some towels so you can whipe your gear off after games and keep your goggles clean and to clean your squeege if you have used it.

It's a bunch of allen (hex) wrenches. If you might need to field strip your marker, you should have all of the necessary allen wrenches with you.

Listen to him..... FOOD TAKE FOOD. When the end of the day comes and people say should we play more og go home and eat, it sucks, if you have food, you can tide them over (and yourself) so you can play more.....

Take a tarp so if it starts to rain...

If it's outlaw, make sure you have a cell phone.
towels so you dont have to lay your gun down on your car and scratch anything. Duct tape, may be tacky, but better than nothin. rope (I once tied my hopper on when my elbow broke in half).

just some stuff. If you want to make it neater in your list by all means Magnus

anything.....

Some kid gets shot in the eye. some Co2 tank blows up in your hands, some kid accidently lit the forest on fire, need a ride home, tripped over a log while running away and brake your leg, get shot in the neck, close range, and it starts bleeding profusely and you cant breath, order pizza so it arrives right when you get back to your house

many things...

some people are really do things by the book, and might print this out and check it every time.

so you could add gloves and shin/knee gaurds so they dont think they have everything and they dont.

neck gaurd

Spare lenses for your mask, just in case you notice a crack from your original one or get gogged.

Barrel plug/condom, unless you're renting and they supply it for you.
