When Do You Buy Another Marker? Just a poll. You can explain, too!

So I would say maybe 2-3 years or so in most cases for me, or at least that's what I want to shoot for before I buy another marker.

I usually buy 1-3 new markers in a given year, and I'll sell some if I see a need / they're no longer used for anything.
Currently, I have two electropneumatics, a T8, a bow, two pumps (both Sheridan, one stock class and one open class), and my first marker (stacked tube blow back). And a scenario LAW.
I've had 4 Tippmanns come and go (either won them and/or bought and sold), as well as a few others.
I haven't bought any gear this year, which is better than most years.
And yes, I play enough paintball to use all of it multiple times in a given season.

I average about a new one every two years. Last one was 07, got a Marq6. Don't think I'll get a new one in the next few years, though.
I'll put $250 in upgrades on the Marq (Prof. Kit and Tadao board), maybe. Though if I can land a good paying job while in school, I might get the Bob Long Victory and not upgrade the Marq.
...But only if I can get the Victory in purple...

Bitches and guns, this is every man's dream. I don't want to go home, where I'm just an ordinary human being...

For now, I am going to stick with what I have and give a select few the respect and upgrades they deserve. The others that I use for fun will most likely be sold off soon. I am done buying for now, and with the exception of a Box gun, Judicium, or some other custom work, I will be done buying full guns for the rest of the time that I'm in college. There's just not enough time for me to dedicate to each individual gun I have.
