Hello to one and all. I'm Tyger. (Nobody else would actually ADMIT being me...) I'm old. Ignore the creaking, that's just my knees. Been playing since '89 when it was a PGP and a few hundred paintballs for a whole day. I'm still playing, probably a little slower than I used to be. In the Brigade system I'm a "Sabre", play any position that's needed. I figure someone's gotta do it, so it'll probably be me. And I'll play anything. Woods, Scenario, Urban, Indoor, Speedball, Tournaments, Rec, Pump, Stock Class, open semi... who cares. If I'm flinging paint at somoene else, and we're all having fun, then I'm happy.
I also run Web Dog Radio, a paintball video site with tips, tactics, and techniques. Free to look around in, and there's a lot of woods stuff and old school videos there too. I also co-wrote the "Complete Guide to Paintball", currently writing for a couple of the magazines, all that good stuff. I'm here mainly to be a nusance and the occasional voice of sanity in an otherwise insane world. No, wait, that was Star Trek again. DANG!
And don't ask about the injuries. It's a long story that'll end up as a web page on my personal site sometime... HEY! I'm old! Where's the rocking chairs around here? Young whippersnappers... back in my day we had to walk uphill both ways in a blinding snowstorm to play paintball in our bare feet to buy paint at $1 for 10 balls and we didn't have barrel plugs either! Wow this is tiny print....

After high school I was planning on going into Marines, but I was diagnosed with diabetes and everything sort've fell apart. I began playing paintball to show I could get out and do stuff, and give 110% no matter what.
I'm involved with two teams. One is my very own Arkk Angelz that I've led through this year, and I'm also part of a still forming scenerio team that will be attending Black Hawk Down and Oklahoma D-Day events in the future (Many of our members have already had the pleasure in doing so).
For the guy on the field, I just do my job in having fun and completing the objectives, regardless of victory. If you've seen the film Black Hawk Down, then you'll have a good idea on how my teams and I move, which was largely affected by the fact that the local field has dozens of buildings, as well as a base-perimeter wall and one of the largest trench systems in paintball. Everything is fluid and precise.

Thats the scenerio team on convoy protection duty. I'm the dude taking shots at the entrenched 'Reds' in the buildings.

I'm a living oddity, so sue me. I like paintballing cause it lets me exercise my mind and body, and lets my creativity go wild (in designing new ways to mark the enemy.) I'm strong-willed, loyal, intelligent, and a firm believer in the value of hard work. I prefer CocaCola cold, in a glass bottle with no ice. I enjoy outdoorsmanship (camping with no technology and as little equipment as possible), and blacksmithing, both in theory and practice. I live by a strict set of "rules" which I hold above everything else. I believe that living free is better than living safe, and that people in our times are too soft.
I'm an old man at heart, but I'm really only 17, don't let my age fool you, I'm dangerous and competent.
I dunno what else to say, so to avoid saying something stupid, I'll just clamp down now.

A man's(or woman's) worth on the field is relative to his equipment, how well he knows his teammates, and how well he can formulate and follow orders under fire.

I'm Doug Walker, new to the forum but have been playing for a year and a half. I'm 35yrs old and I can't tell you how happy I am to finally be able to play this game. I've wanted to play for years " since I was about 19-20 yrs old", from the first time I'd heard of it actually. My son Brandon who is 15, plays also. Which was sort of the catalyst that allowed me to finally get into paintball. Something we could do together, that was the angle I used with my wife. And once I got that green light, I've been out of control ever since (her words) . I don't get to play as much as I'd like, but that will change dramatically this year. We're attending 3 scenarios in about 5 weeks time, I hope my bones/back can handle it.
Outside of having a good time it is important to me to play w/ honor , safety and sportsmanship in mind. That is a focal point with us and the team I have started "Walkers Rangers". As far as my style of play and or position, I only play scenarios/ woodsball. I don't care much for speedball or some of the attitudes that come with it. Having fun means more than being that competitive to me. I prefer the Broadsword position, as I'm too old and heavy to go running around like a mad man- although I have been known to make some bold moves " most resulting in some form of injury". I guess in a nutshell I play paintball because I like the challenge, and when I'm out there the rest of the world ceases to exist and I can feel like a kid again. Even though I'll feel like an decrepit old man the day after.

New to the forums, been around the paintball scene for some time and also been around the operator's forum. Had to change the name in the brigade so now is the same as my usrname (I forgot my last username and password) in any case if anyone has any questions aboiut problems with the tippy A5 I might be able to help. Hoepfully I'll catch up a couple of members if this forum in one of this summer's events.

My teammates call me Wolf.
I have a paintball team called TAPS (Tactical Assault Paintball Squad)
I have a stock X7 with E-trigger, and I use a Recon 6 Vest.
I recently bought about $50 of gear from SpecOps Shop, and I was wondering if I could get that as points on my Brigade page.
I'm really getting into paintball, even though it's been like a month since I started, and so I wouldn't mind leveling up to an Officer.

The reason I chose Mastiff as my name is because of the Neapolitan Mastiff(from Naples, Italy). They are large, powerful, fearless war dogs whose loyalty to their masters knows no bounds. The Romans used their direct ancestors as dogs of war and as gladiators in the arenas. They were pitted against lions and tigers as well as men. The upper class of the Roman society would keep several of them on their property to protect their families and their valuables from thieves. They are gentle giants and pretty lazy but this is not to be taken lightly. It will protect its family and its family's property with its life. I feel very akin to these animals not only because we are from the same place but also because I think of myself as a gentle giant that will protect his family and property with my life, and I have owned them. This is also the way I play paintball or any sport for that matter. I am gentle with my teammates but I will murder the opposition. I will destroy them by any means paintball. I like to be the walking tank(full of ammo and 'nades) but I still move quick and get in the mix when I need to. I apologize if I bored you, I thought I'd save some of you the trouble of having to ask.
I am new to woodsball(paintball in general) and to this forum and the brigade(gee Clarence look at your post count and join date, I'm sure they can tell). I have only been playing for about a month maybe 2 months. I am glad I found this site so I can connect with other players in my area and all across the globe. I have a Tippmann X7 with the Flatline barrel and a Trinity Stock. I have a red dot sight on it but it doesn't really work too well with the Flatline barrel. I play whatever position I need to play so I guess you can pretty much say I'm a Sabre. I'd like to move into a Sniper position some day and I am in the process of saving up and piecing together a marker specifically for "sniping". I have been looking at a Tippmann A5 or 98C with a Q loader system. Any thoughts on my choice would be greatly appreciated. I hope to learn from everyone here and I hope that I can contribute to the community as well. Ci vediamo dopo!
