Posts I've Made
23 August 2009 - 06:56 PMI wasnt just talking about your comment, it was just the final one that set me off. there were all the ones before hand about the heavy guys playing, and about people with milsim gear etc. And Yet, yes, yours was about the stupidest thing ever and it was pistols. Read what you wrote. And still I stand by what I said. But now your all defensive cause I was offended by what you said.
QuoteWhoa, take a deep breath and calm down. I don't think that me saying a pistol is stupid will breed intolerance. This is just an open discussion, and I feel that pistols are useless. If you don't agree with me fine, but don't say that I am intolerant, and that I judge people. I simply think that pistols are an unnecessary thing that just adds weight.
and yet you clearly said
QuotePersonally, I think that one of the stupidest things on the paintball field is carrying around a pistol "just in case". Who honestly drops their primary marker and whips out a pistol. Now using a pistol as their primary, or even a small pump and a pistol, is completely reasonable. I am talking about the guy with the 30lb a5 with a remote line, plus a pistol.
nah your not intolerant. Im jus the stupidest thing youve ever seen on the paintball field. So I guess I should be sorry, that Im offended Directly by what you said.
But there were others. Yours was just the final straw like I said.
QuoteOh man, I love those huge guys that have to string two ghillies together to fit in it, then lay in the short grass and somehow think they won't be seen.
And then this one
QuoteLol. I know you say that jokingly, the sad part is I know a guy like that. shemagh ( I use mine as a wipe rag now...), one drop leg holster for the Zeus he never uses and another for 3 pods, Green laser, Flashlight, ACOG with the piggyback reddot, and an IR laz. and a RAP4 M203 Simulator that didn't even look impressive, let alone shoot for anything.
Vest of course had about 4 pods, the rest of it was 'tactical' gear. Radios (2), Grenades (smoke, paint, and a "thumper" noise grenade), Hydro carrier (one of the condor ones that affix to MOLLE webbing), Zipcuffs, Electrical tape hanging off a carabiner off his shoulder, and a fold-out first-aid kit with things mostly useless for paintball but looked really cool (he actually got in trouble for that and had to remove it).
Wore the full Multicam BDUs in 90 degree heat with 100% humidity, Sweated like a pig most of the time, and is usually the first heat casualty at games. Ah well, he's still better than the 450lb 'sniper' in the ghillie and with the 24" barrel on his spyder.
sure the gear may sound excesive, but if hes having fun, then so what? And the 450lb guy found a way that he thinks he can play the game and fill a roll. Nice, but its not good enough for you I guess.
Judge em till they quit playing and go Home. That 'ill make paintball a better place.
23 August 2009 - 11:12 AMSimple question, what gear do you usually carry with you onto the field. Primarily for smaller games, (no bigger than 30 on a side) though you can post anything. I'm primarily asking this to make sure I have room for everything on the vest I am building.
For a game that has 30 to a side, woodsball, Id carry a full load out.
4 - 8 pods
114 ci 4500 tank
3 spare mags
Radio and headset

Wow, thats really insulting to alot of players here. Im one of them too. I use a moded A5, and I have a nice X7, (not both at once) either one uses a Remote line. And I wear a Tac8, ya know, "just in case". because Ive had my marker fail. Ive had paint fail, Ive had Air lines fail, and Ive even ran out of HPA during a fire-fight. And ya know what, I drew my pistol and kept playing, But if I had been narrow minded and not carried a pistol, I guess I could have walked off the field.
SO I guess thanks for classifying me as the stipidest thing youve ever seen. But then that would only be second to the people I mark out during a game. Cause if my and my gear is stupid, than the people I eliminate during a game have to be just dumb as a sack of wet hammers.
OH, and Im 270lbs, I wear multicam, A broadsword vest, combat boots, gloves and a drop pouch for my Tac8 mags when I fast reload. I use a 114ci 4500 tank on remote and my gear has a hydration bladder, a tactical light and a bore swab. I have a radio and heaset for team communication. Three spare mags for my tac8 (just in case) and 4-6 pods for my primary. Kneepads on occasion and a tactical helmet once in a great while. I like the look, I like the feel and I enjoy playing Paintball this way.
My Point here folks is, you really should watch how you judge people and what you say in public. Im a nice guy (generally) and Im out to have fun on MY dime. And enjoy some time MY way. I dont care if you show up in Neon clothing with a bright red gun, as long as you have fun, and are nice to people playing, and play fair. But What Im seeing above here is that some people here want to judge people on their definition of fun and equipment. So what if the guy is 500 pounds laying under 10 sqr yards of camo netting in the sand, and calling himself a sniper. So what. Mark him out and be done with it. He will learn. SO what if I wear ten tons of gear or carry a marker that is both ineffective and over priced. What really does that do to you? But when you openly critisize us on public forums, you breed intolerance and you propogate a cycle that will never end. You teach a younger generation that its ok to critisize and make fun of people different from themselves. And you drive a wedge into the relationships of paintballers everywhere. You increase already sensitive insecurities and worse yet, perhaps you drive off a player.
Really people? I mean really, is this who you are?
But now that Ive critisized you, youll get all defensive and tell me why Im wrong. Ah, got it, its only a one way fun fest.
09 August 2009 - 12:44 PMFirst off let me say, NICE SHOOTING & FUN VID. I laughed a couple of times.
Now my questions.
What marker and barrel are you useing?
What camera are you useing?
07 August 2009 - 12:59 PMwow, the guy makes a legit thread for people to post on, and folks from the other thread, come by and make fun. Nice work people.
ok, Id have to list the happiest moments but not in any order of importance.
Children. I have five, one from a previous relationship and then four at home. Witnessing their birth, and meeting them for the first time. That is absolutly amazing.
spending time with my kids. Wrestling with them and just being their dad. If you had a long download of the rest of my life before my wife and how I am now, youd understand. This gift, this present. This is happienss. Wow, words cant describe.
there are more, but Im at work, and Ill have to post back later.
In the mean time, if you dont have something to contribute the way the OP intenede, then kids, go play some place else.
