    I own an Ion version. New board will be the first upgrade when I have the money. Red dot and All American are the only two upgrades.

    No Fear,

    What you are assuming is generally correct. A lot of the names, tactics, and other "lingo" is indeed military based. Iron man is correct. These formations, tactics, and other references should be applied loosely. By "loosely" I am referring to is adjusting the information and applying it to you in the best possible usefulness. If you have doubt about how a certain tactic will work, run it in a game. But have the presence of mind to determine how to adjust the tactic. Knowledge is power. The more you know and understand the easier it will be to adjust these things. Personally after two years of leading a "home town" team I have found the most effective way to train for a fight is to fight. As much my teammates got bored or flustered with having to to play against the other fire team they truly progressed the most. I'd just insert new small tactics or suggestions and watched the team grow. Rarely will any engagement ever go according to plan. So be flexible.
    If you want ideas for this information just search the word tactics. Two years ago when I was active on this board a lot of tactical information was brought together by some of the best paintball commanders I will ever have the pleasure of knowing. A main thing you will see in their tactics is how basic they are. As you develop your own play book you will see how well this works. Happy paintballing.

    Seriously considering getting into it, instead of spending all my money on paintball. (Paintball just doesn't pose much of a challenge, thus no feeling of accomplishment). But this, this looks like my cup of tea. May save money to take my first course this winter in the San Juans, just to get a feel for it.

    Not down playing you or anything, but i seriously suggest you start out somewhere else besides the San Juans in the middle of winter. Having lived in those mountains all my life I can tell you that its no picnic. If you do, make sure you have a knowlegeable guide. I seriously suggest starting out in the summer though. you couldnt have picked a more beautiful range of mountains though. I love the San Juans and would kill to get a chance to climb them.
    It is definietly a challenge but you'll fall in love with it. Be safe. If it doesn't feel right or safe don't do it. You can always try again next time. And remember, reaching the top isnt finishing, its only half way. PM if you have other questions.


    I live only about an hour and a half away from the range, and have hiked fourteeners more than once. And I know I have little experience mountaineering in winter, hence the class.

    That's who I plan on taking it with, and one of my parent's friends has experience with them and he was very pleased. The only thing I can't get over is the expense, but I really have nowhere else to go as a beginner.

    Glad to hear it. Which range are you close to? Dont skimp on the gear though bro. its worth it. I've backpacked through the San Juans (Silverton and Lake City area) in the summer. Good gear is worth it. Props to ya bro. Have fun.
