so i've been getting loads of cash cause nobody knows what to buy me, so i've decided to buy some paintball stuff before i enlist in the Air Force. I'm well off in all other areas, but i was wondering what i should buy with my cash/save up for.
My current set-up is a Tippmann A5A1 (M4 stock and spec ops foregrip), standard double trigger, flatline, and x7 hopper.
i wouldnt mind an upgrade for my Vera or getting a new Tiberius or what.

Any suggestions?

When do you leave for the Air Force?

I would save the money for what is needed first, and then consider using it playing paintball rather than buying more gear you won't get much use out of before you are enlisted and have no time or location to play.

I agree with Thalion on this one. You will get more joy out of being able to play more before you ship out for training. Plus your paintball markers will normally have to be locked up in your company's arms room, assuming the Air Force is like the Army with paintball stuff. I have heard stories of guys markers being stripped of every when they go to sign out their gear.

If you must buy stuff to keep your brain from exploding...soft goods are far easier to travel with. And a good mask is possibly the best thing ever is paintball.

Again...if you just can not live without the hard goods then buy the gun you want and enjoy it befor you go.
Just be sure you have a safe place to store it while you are in training and a reliable source to ship it off to you when you are stable enough to start playing again.

Things will change by the time you are ready to play again so you may find you want different gear by then.

If your enlistment is soon...skip buying new gear at all. Buy it after you pull out of training and get settled in at a new home.
