We should start a NetFlix type arrangement where we all send each other guns in parts. That way we'll have gear to fix and monkey around with at the end of winter but we won't actually have to buy it. We can all return it fully assembled in the spring. I too have the fever but I've managed to stave of the urge to buy by fixing a friends recent Craigs List purchases.

You say that now, but I just played a 5 on 5 private game in PA where we brought 25 guns expecting at least 12 to crap out on us in the snow. Luckily we only lost 7 and one of those wasn't even due to the cold, it stopped working when the guy carrying it fell in an icy stream twice.

The logistics of trying to play in the snow is such a pain, from freezing paintballs to so much clothing that all hits bounce, its just hard to do.
I've played on snowshoes, which sounds cool, but is mostly a huge pain in the butt.
