Just thought i'd introduce myself here as im newly registered and have spent the last couple of hours reading useful information from this site!

The names Andy and i live/work/play in the UK. I'm generally into scenario ball and also play woods mainly at a local site (its advertised as the best in europe so why go anywhere else?)

My setup is:

X7 Phenom
Lapco bigshot 12" apex ready
apex tip
Assault rifle front shroud
car stock
carry handle with riser rail
holographic sight
remote line to a 70/4500 (tac vest mounted)

Currently playing a series in the UK called Diamond Wars which is great fun. Maybe one day when the wife leaves me and i inherit loads of money i'd like to come to a Oklahoma D-Day in the USA :D

Happy Balling

-Buffy

Welcome Andy!

That is quite the setup, I too have a phenom, however it is stock for now. I think you'll find that the SO forums are quite welcoming and friendly. I hope you enjoy your stay!

Good to see you chime in sir.

As you will hear a bit often...welcome to our humble abode!

I do not however own a Phenom....But I will not however hold that against you :facepalm:

I would like to see more pictures of your field. I have always wondered about fields in the UK, and from that one oic it looks like they get a bunch of use.

They look just like our fields, Except in between games they have "tea time" and instead of "high pressure air" they have "Raised Pressurized Atmosphere"
oh and there is usually a little German marker factory and a English paintball bakery and a french sandana shop close by.
And on the side of the streets is a Scotsman swearing his lungs out about being hit by a paintball. followed by more curse words.

At least thats what i imagine

haha thanks everyone!

Eskimo you're pretty much right - when we have refreshments we dont bother with energy drinks or hotdogs, we set up our little tables and go for crumpets and tea ;-)

Krazy8 the site i go to gets between 200-400 rental customers per day over the weekend and they get 50-100 some weekdays so it really does see alot of use! Its 220 acres though with several different 'zones' (different themes like Wild West, Jungle, Bridges etc).

Heres some photography of Diamond Wars, from it you can get a bit of an idea of the terrain we play and the size of scenario we play once a month! (just click on which months footage you want to see as there is quite a bit) http://www.firstcorn...o.uk/paintball/

Just to give you an idea i'll put some of my fav pics from diamond wars up here.

Not all paintball fields are like this in the UK, this is one of the better ones ive ever been to as it allows own gunners, supplies CO2 and HPA for free and they have a mix of big and small arenas totalling 17 (when we play scenario we play half or whole site with all the arena's together).

I'm playing this sunday and i cant wait :comp:
