Topics I've Started
22 November 2011 - 12:20 PMReplica MICH 2001 Style Helmet:
Tan color. Comes with replica hardware (not the real deal,) attached. On both sides there is a plastic rail system that will enable you to fit rails to mount various items (lights, cameras, etc.) Also on the exterior, I placed velcro patches for flags, morale patches, attaching things like lights, strobes, rear pouch for spare batteries, misc. (please note all items just listed are NOT included, this is just why the velcro is there.) Pre-installed is a replica NVG mount that from what I've heard can handle attaching mounting arms and supporting night vision goggles just fine. Looks cool even without the goggles mounted. The cut on the sides are to accomodate electronic ear protection, but this works fine for giving room for a paintball mask. On the inside, there is velcro to attach padding that is included (if more or new padding is needed, it is easily found and inexpensive.) Certain paintball masks will fit the helmet well. The best luck I had was with save phace and the jt flex pro's. Masks with similar dimensions should fit, depending on your head size of course. Asking for $50 shipped.
Save Phace Lazarus Mask:
Comes with all items included in original package. Original lens included. Asking for $40 shipped. Please note when I received this, one of the visor mounting screws was stripped before I even touched it. This is easy to replace, but wouldn't be an issue using or not using any way. The forehead protective piece will mount with or without the 1 "lemon" screw.

06 February 2011 - 08:13 AMHey everyone,
For starters, this will be a long read, and I hope I can clearly state what the issue is I'd like discussion on. Also, there will be reference to players of certain ages that I will like to clarify, I am NOT looking to insult anyone or place any biased accusation. The following is a write up of my observations as a player throughout the years, and my overall feeling of paintball's atmosphere these days. Hope to get a lot of feedback from you guys. Let's read on.
So I've been involved in paintball for about 8 years now. I started in my teens in a local tourny league on a 3 man speedball team with my best friends. After we got out of the "pro" scene, I've been dedicated to woodsball ever since. I regularly attened Big Games/Scenario Games ever since getting a taste of something more immersive than capture the flag. In my near decade of experience, I've noticed a significant change in the sport itself; for starters, just the fact that paintball is being challenged now as something else besides a sport. The point I would like to discuss my view on, as well as hear some feedback from everyone else is "does anyone else feel the quality of the game has dropped due to an overall poor attitude and negative theme? If so, how does one help to improve the quality in morale of his fellow players, which of whom he may not even know they are?"
There is automatically the argument of "well dude, to each their own; people are going to do what they want." I've heard that time and time again, but is that really the case? With every event I go to, out of the hundreds of players around me, I only see a handful of those actually dedicated to the game. They are proud to mention the name "paintball," and have a practical take on what the game play is all about. My observation of the player populous involves mostly "young guns;" players whose age ranges from 14-18. This is a HUGE gap in maturity (not always the case,) and may very well be an uncontrollable factor. Typically with this group, you see "kids" running around with markers tricked out as "M4's" and "AK's." I have no problem with this. I had an old Tippmann A5 tricked out to that of an AR-15; very similar to the setup I would have with a real steel AR-15 (firearms lingo.) BUT...I fully recognize and appreciate the fact that paintball CANNOT be ANYTHING close to a real life situation. Unfortunately, I think this younger generation takes from what they see from the unintelegible "shooter" films and video games, and apply it to paintballing. I've had players running around barking orders, so I'm thinking "oh, good for them, they're really using their brain." Then of course, it falls utterly short when the person has NO IDEA what they're even saying (real example: "Cover Fire!" "uh...no one's shooting, you gonna move to another bunker? No? Ok, you don't need cover fire." There's players out there looking for a MILSIM feel, and that's great! I've always had a knack for realistic tactical applications in a recreational "game." On the side of paintball, I used to heavily participate in a small, nearly "exclusive" field using airsoft; which most of the players (also the founders of the field) were all veterans of deployments in campaigns, such as Desert Storm and Iraqi Freedom, even as far back as the near end of Vietnam and Granada. EXCELLENT experience, but airsoft declined into everything you DON'T want to be involved in.
Back on topic, I'll reiterate that it is not my intention to bash our young guns. I'm merely stating an observation. Who knows, perhaps its the local crowd I see, perhaps elsewhere the youth is more appropriate and competant with paintball. Moving on, let me also address the older crowd; the 21+ players. From what I've seen, very few are veteran PAINTBALL players. Veterans who have appreicated the SPORT since it's birth. Then...you have the disgruntled middle class joe blow who looks to dish out some serious hurt after a long week of work. These are the guys who cuss their fellow players up and down the field, challenge and intimidate the officials, and look to put a damper into gameplay. This too is found with the young guns, don't get me wrong; we're all capable of being an a**. All in all, with a combination of immaturity and a general "unwelcoming" atmosphere, how can new players get in the game with such a negative experience? And how can the veteran players actually enjoy themselves with all the negativity and lack luster of a "good game?"
What do you guys think can be done? Can anything be done? How does one make a good game with lacking quality?
