Spec Ops forum was definitely my stepping stone into the Utah paintball scene. I played for a few years in Ontario, Canada and wanted to keep playing when I moved here. The downside was I didn't know absolutely anyone. I went to my local paintball shop (Pegleg's, thanks Dale Price!) and asked them where people play. They directed me to the Spec Ops forum. I started sending out random pm's to people around the Utah area and a dude from Bad Karma got in touch with me. Before I knew it, I was balls deep in paintball, lol.
I watched what Dazl described from the sidelines, I'm friends with Dazl, Mo, and know Jason Orvis as well. It was like watching the Titanic sink, it happened so fast.
