Who still plays paintball?

Just curious. My undergrad sucked away any disposable income i could have possibly used to play years ago. Don't think i've played since 2007 or somewhere around there.

Some sort of relic from the pre-recession days i believe. Or an old wooden ship.

I still have my full geo set up and gear but dont play much anymore. Once this year since a 5man in the summer. And a few times running around the field with my gun hands.

But really all my best old paintball friends have either quit for good or don't play around here anymore so the drive for me to play every weekend is fairly dead and doesn't feel the same with out everyone there that used to be.
Plus since iv gotten into photography so much more i ended up saving half this year for a new camera body and now im saving for an even more expensive lens.
Once you start having to pay for things you have better interests in paintball really starts to just fade away


EDIT: I have yet again glitched teh threadz

Still got the gear, just got a job...been a few months since I played though...hopefully I can get back to it before too long. Switching to pump helped with the money problem.

Me neither. Last time I played it was the other way around.

I'm kinda wondering if my buddy still has his OG Shocker, and if he'd sell it to me.

I'm now a vintage-wearing female hipster. It's really quite a long story!

Really though I pretty much thought paintball died out in the second half of the 2000s especially with the economy being really really awful. harder to afford, rising prices on things involved in the manufacture of the parts and stuff doesnt help I bet.
I dunno I don't really miss it much. I do still have my Phantom though and it's moved with me twice. I think because it's pretty. I'd like to sell it but whenever I get around to starting to I feel bad about it. It's probably 18 years old now if I remember correctly.
Went into photography and have a BFA in fine art photography. Though unfortunately since thats such a consumer market the economy really really drains photographer business. I'm currently looking at a relocation and maybe going back to school for culinary arts.
and I smoke a lot more weed than I used to.
