Things you wish you had from the start.

What are some things you wish you had when you started playing paintball, that you purchased later on and find that you can't live without?

For me: Kneepads and a paintball caddy.

The kneepads are kind of obvious, I just didn't realize how much they would help me out over the course of a day, I bought a set of volleyball kneepads that I wear under my paints and they help a lot.

The caddy is a lifesaver for me, no more spilled paintballs, easy to refill your pods. Eliminates a lot of aggravation for me.

An endless supply of cheap Autocockers and Automags. All of the markers I drooled over 15 years ago are affordable now!

A good anti fog mask. My first mask was a Scott Extreme Stoker. Man that thing fogged up so fast, I ended up taking off the mask and just using my goggles till I eventually got my Spectra's.

I watched Mike's vids on masks so I started with a v-force. Knee pads and cleats
