Son's first time!

Today, my 12 year old son played his first game of paintball and he loved it! I was worried he'd be overwhelmed by intense ramping and aggressive gameplay and then never want to play again.

However, we were able to be joined up with a birthday party with a healthy mix of teenaged boys and girls. I have suspicions of a high school dance group date going on too, though I never asked. The field owner thought that too.

In the third game, my son got his first elimination when he was getting bunkered by two players at the end of the game. He shot the one out switched sides and almost got the other one too but he got hit instead. I was so proud of him as I watched from the dead box.

He had a good time playing with my wife's Automag, who said we'd pay if we "broke it". My only regret was that we forgot to bring the camera to document his first day.

I've been waiting 12 years for this moment and look forward to many more years of quality time with him out on the field.

We built him a classic mag on the cheap a year ago, in case he didn't want to be in the sport. We kept the investment low.

Since my wife wasn't going with us, we gave him hers to use and kept his classic as a backup in case the ULE went down (which it didn't). I think it is safe to say, we can invest a little more now that we know he loves it. The classic mag can still be his backup.

I hope your boy loves that STO with as much love as you put into building it.

That's awesome guys. I hope my 2yr old daughter wants to play when she gets old enough. So far she loves to hold the guns just like daddy:
