You had the intent to do it. That's all that counts.

Quick question: Why did you paintball in the first place? Just for fun, as a hobby?

You can't just credit a hobby at face value. I would never be able to give up certain things in my life regardless of money. I'd find out how to adapt! Paintball is one of those things. A place where I can get out and just blow off some steam. Work, stress, all of that has no business on the paintball field and has become something that I look forward to week after week.

I ask only because it amazes me that someone could give this up! I know I have stressful times ahead of me, but paintball will be with me the whole way, I'd probably go insane if I lost such a hobby without finding a replacement.

It started as a hobby, but over time it turned into an addiction.

Im feeling the same way. Im torn between selling my gear, or just hanging onto it for the occasional rec game on a weekend. I have played only a few times this year. Another option I have is selling my gear nice gear and maybe buy a c02 tank, and a cheap marker. Just for fun. Then I dont have a lot of money sitting in a closet not getting used.

However, you actually take a net loss of money from when you started, since you won't be selling at the same price you put into it. I'd keep the "nice gear" and it gets used when it gets used.


Anyone who isn't 100% sure they're gone for good, I'd seriously recommend just keeping one setup on hand so you can play.

There have been times in the past where I've wanted to throw all of my gear on ebay and be done with it. Our team's schedule is tough enough combined with the off the field work which sometimes turns this great hobby into a part time job. When I do get burned out though I schedule myself a day at a new field I've never played and walk on with a box of 12 grams and my pump and go for it. That usually goes a long way to pressing my reset button.

If we all had millions of dollars, none of us would ever get burned out.

The constant challenge of placing paintball above other monetary concerns is what gets most of us frustrated with the sport.

That is true Raptor, but I also feel that time, money, friends, and attitude all apply. If you have no money to play, no friends want to go, no time from your schedule, or a poor attitude, that can alter the mindset on staying in paintball.

I would keep it, but I didn't have enough room for that statement.
