Who cares?   Talk about what you like with those that have similar interests.   Skateboarding got the same lack of respect when I was your age (a while ago) and look at it now.

The sooner you learn to stand out in a crowd, the better man you will become.   Trust me.

I think it has to do with the fact that its still a relatively new sport.

Like Rico mentioned, skateboarding didn't command a whole lot of respect when it first started, and now it's grown pretty big.

A couple of more seasons will see paintball getting a little bit more respectable.

At lease I hope.

I got made fun of too, people said I was dumb for spending so much on one marker and then so much on paint and a tank, then they found out that Matt played too and BAM it was all cool and I was just a copycat.

It aint about black or white
becuz we human
I hope we see the light before it's ruined

<Considers rant about the maturity level of some posters. Decides it's not worth the effort>

If body armor gets my girl on the field, I'll buy her as many vests as she wants. 

I think that applies to everyone. Whatever makes you comfortable and gets you in the game is good for the sport.

They might be "JEALOUS" because it just happens that your'e a better paintballer than them. They aso haven't experience the fun of playing paintball. If they tried it, they might want to go back and back again to the field. If they tried and didn't like it, they probably got hit a million times and can't resist getting hurt by paintballs. So just don't can't care about them, talk about your likes and hobbies. It's your life and they can't change it. THEY'RE JUST SCARED OF GETTING HIT BY A "PAINTBALL."
I can accept failure, but I can't accept not trying.
