I'd have to say an old guy is someone who remembers using a NEW pmi-1, KP3, BE Nightmare, SMG-60 or a Rat Attack QC, ACI Turret or wearing JT Whippersnapers.

Damn I am old and I don't turn 35 untill March. Where's my heating pad, vitamins, ibuprophine and Rub a535?

If you EVER meet someone who talks about how they used oil based paint when they started, pray you are on their team, especially if they use a pump.

Well you're 3 months younger than me, so enjoy that if you can.
I started playing when I was pretty young - 15 or 16, so it just feels wierd to see some "pro" who wasnt even ALIVE when some of us were alrady playing...Im not diddin' the new generation, Im just saying that they make me feel OLD. But keeping up with the young ones is what keeps me sharp...

Old?

Old is when I'm too damn beat up and crippled to ever play anymore!




Now as soon as this knee gets better and this spasm in my back fades just a little more....why....why I'll show those whippersnappers a thing or two!

Just to add:

You remember when the Splatmaster was a great innovation in paintball. You remember when everyone called it "Splatball" instead of paintball. You watched Thundar the Barbarian on Saturday mornings. Heck you remember when the only time you could watch cartoons was on Sat. mornings! You remember your uncle bringing the game "Pong" over to everyone's amazement. :D

You know you're old when you have to ice your knees, elbows, etc, both before, and after games. :P
