well has been awhile....

I haven't been able to play in about 3 years. Money, jobs, and other things have come up. In sept of 2001 I was Fired from my job. I then worked for a small shop for cash, Started At Midas In Dec of 2011. Then in July of 2012 My wife was fired from her job of 14 years. Reason Hippa Violation. I believe it was just a reason to let her go, she turned 55 her last birthday. Bothwell has a history of getting rid of older employees, so they can hire someone younger at lower pay.I started looking for a new Job. found a new Job at Landmark Dodge in Independence MO. Been there since Sept 2012. It's going great. Plenty of work, 28 Hour a week grantee, "Union" benefits, Insurance Retirement, etc. Most of my collection of markers is gone. Sold to make ends meet. I have 2 Tippmanns left and parts to build about 3 or 4 markers once I get caught back up and can afford some parts to finish them up. The wife still hasn't found a job yet. She has been looking, but not much has come up. Sorry for crying on your shoulders, but just needed to vent.

That's why we can be here. I hope things turn out for the better. It's a new year there's plenty to be able to look forward to and be thankful for.

at least you kept a couple of reliable markers for when the situation was better. For me personally I'd sell every other marker to make ends meet but my phantom. if I was forced financially to hang up my mask so to speak it'd be right there beside it on my pegboard in it's holster (the phantom I mean) ready to rock when times were better. Thankfully for now I have a job but boy do I hate it but seeing your post is making me stick it out knowing others either don't have a job or are getting screwed at the one they have.

I'd say play pump even when others have semis. Easy way to keep playing on a shoestring budget imo!

But best of luck with everything man! As a student I know all too well the feeling of not being able to play. After rent + utilities I usually can choose between food shopping and paint XD.
