Going to really rock the old school boat here, with a new old school story from an 18yo. I started playing in '06, using a tippmann. A hour from my home, there was sort of a paintball store, and I picked up this weird marker one day. Two weeks and some research later, I bought it (or more correctly, a PO'ed mother who drove an hour one way just to get some peace and quiet), and fell in love. I wound up selling that mag in a fit of stupidity, mainly because I had no upper body strength until '09. Coming full circle though, some forty markers bought and sold later, and am piecing together a mag now. I just couldn't get the hang of plastic feednecks and twistlocks, thus why I couldn't settle.
