yup. still cant drive *SIGH*
whether i ship or fly with em the regs gotta come off, so ill keep that in mind
im really not looking forwards to shipping my gear again, its such a pain... think im shipping minimal stuff and buying a new anything that breaks.
Regardless I'm going to make it to some of these this year!
its a big game, things like that happen at big games. refs are spread out (you can NEVER have enough5 at a big game, ive reffed a few). Cheaters come because they know that. You just have to be willing to put up with it, and trust that the refs are doing everything they can to prevent it/catch people like that. For me, the fun still outways the occasional pain.
Down here in NH, I had a friend get shot in the back of the head with a ball bearing. That was my favorite one I think. He got a concussion, and a few people got to the guy before the refs could... lets just say we were calling more than one ambulance.
As far as FPO goes, im totally against it. It is ONLY done to make money. We have a no oil-based/wallmart paint rule at our field, and it works perfectly. Plus the proshop offers options, with paint ranging from 45 for heat to 65 for allstars. I really like to have an unusual colored paint so I know who I shot. And I like to be able to choose my paint. I HATE putting anything but marbs through my pump. I wouldnt mind so much if Hells Survivors would give you options on what you buy. But theres only one, and its rediculously overpriced. That bothers me. You can freeze field paint and bring it back just as easy as you can freeze anything else. Not to mention, they already disproved the whole freezing paintballs myth- anything shooting that fast will hurt. Anythiung thats sat for a long time will hurt. Freezing just makes the shells brittle.
