...and selling all my stuff. I just can't get enough money. I get NO allowance, I can't get a job (legally) because of my grades/school situation, and my parents aren't helping for ****. I'm bummed. I really love paintball. It's the most fun I've ever had. And now I can't even play once a month because I can't afford it. I've had my gun (A5) stock for a few months. Even when I do play, I can't hit **edited**, but I don't care because it's so damn fun. What do you guys think I should do? I have nothing to sell. I would never sell my Xbox, and that's the only thing that would be worth selling....I'm so bummed right now Sad

So you're saying I should shoot less paint, somehow gain magical skills, and SOMEHOW spend less money on paintball that I already do?

and apu- I got it around my birthday in June. I love the gun :)

Yeah..I guess you're right. It's better to play once every 2 months than not a while. Thanks man, you've been the only helpful person here.

I quit...I still have my gun and gear, I just don't make a point of going once or twice a month anymore.

There are better things in life to spend money on...like a car and a girlfriend.

you could sell your A-5 (would be best) and get a cheaper fun like.... the 98c or something in it's price range or lower. maybe you could get some kind of spyder that's ok but not overly expensive. then you can buy cheap paint. shoot less, dont play ALL the time.

then for a really desperate option, you could buy a blade and play with your friends with A-5's and what not.

I'm not downgrading, that's for sure. I feel bad enough playing with an A5 while everyone else has Vikings, Trix's, and bushys.

dont worry bout it man, i schooled a kid with my sl68-11...he had an angel speed  he looked like he was going to cry

their guns may be able to shoot 25bps but it only takes one to get a person out

I haven't played but once, or twice all summer, but that is mainly bcuz so much vacationing. Its weird how much accumulates when your not spending it  I got like $900 over the summer and got me the gizun in my sig even though I haven't been playin alot. It was just too good of a deal to let go
yay do i win?

sell your a-5 possibly and get a phantom...its  a great pump and you will use lots less paint...saving you your much needed money...or dont sell your gear and just wait until you can get a job
