I like Guns and Cigars.

Good thread and a couple of really good stories in here.
I worked at a field for a few years back when I was in college. Those were great years with a lot of comradery and we took pride in that field.
It was very rewarding coaching the youngsters, explaining that the guys with the Angels were good because of practice and devotion, not fancy guns.
I got to see many cocky people humbled, grumpy people made happy, and first time paintballers find a lifetime hobby.
No sport like this one.

Some of my closest friends were met through paintball, and I can blame my tool collection on the game as well. I didn't even own an allen wrench set when I first bought my Phantom.

Ive learn't alot about organization and planning my local paintball games with friends almost 5 years ago when I was 14. The stories top everything, as one of my bestfriends past away this year , my memory of us playing as a team and working together is something ill never forget. I almost gave up playing after he passed because it wouldnt be the same , but realized it helps more than anything.
