I predict that in 2013 I will still not care about "pro" paintball and will continue playing with Automags and Snipers. As for what other people will do, they'll continue playing speedball with electros.

Im hoping to see the further shrinking of the tourny scene... Hell three years ago it was at major venues with local fields begging to be the host field.

Now PSP is begging local fields to host them. Playership is down also.. this was the smallest world cup in decades. Ironically they tried to bring in different crowds buy hosting woodsball competitions. To little to late. Time to go into a brightly colored agg coffin.

You could be right. I've said before that I think those days of legal danger are over for paintball, but I also thought the gun control push was finally over in this country and now look--NOT to start a forbidden political discussion, just pointing out how quickly the issues at hand can change with reaction to an incident or two.

Really we just need someone deranged to go out and do something heinous (no offense), and then for that person to just so happen to be a paintballer with an evil, ugly-looking DAM or Milsig in his closet for media to flash around. Or if Taylor Swift shoots her eye out or something.

Actually, I thought the Aurora movie theater shooter had a poster, and here it is.

Take particular note; this IS how it starts.

No background check is required to play paintball, officials said.

Chuck Hendsch, chief operating officer for the National Professional Paintball League, said Holmes was not a member of the organization.
This is prime example of bias in journalism; the reporter asks these questions with the implication that there should be a background check to play paintball or buy gear, and that if the shooter was a member of NPPL, maybe that organization would be somehow liable. It also demonstrates journalistic ignorance in Mr. Parker's assumption that any significant portion of paintball players belong to the NPPL.

I did some searching around on that guy once. He actually looks quite ordinary; turns out he got that spray tan and windswept hairdo just for the folks at History.
