My updated New Years Resolution...
3 years ago I came up with what I thought, at the time, was a reasonable new years resolution. To play one full day with each gun I own;
Well it was going swimmingly until I started to suffer from health problems more and more. The last time I played paintball was pump castle in 2012, and I didn't play at all in 2013. (I also didn't realize until I counted all my guns and put them up on a wall I had close to 30 lol)
This year I want to play badly, no matter how sick I am. So I'm going to pick 5 guns only, and play with only those 5 guns (and their backups) this year.
* Stock class VCS Phantom that's never been fired.
* Older Sniper open class pump that doesn't look like anything special, but kind of fell in my lap and shoots surprisingly well.
* All black mechanical X valved Automag.
* My 40th birthday present, an Invert Mini electro with a ton of options.
* Last but not least, the crazy shrouded electro full auto A5 that I put together just to play wit my team S.C.A.R. (officially; the SCAR QX00) I have to play at least one day with S.C.A.R. this year of I'll never forgive myself.
Have any of you made resolutions like this? What do you think of mine? I just want to spend a day enjoying a gun the way I did when I only had one or two.

Every year I have a few paintball-related resolutions, and one of the standing ones is to use every marker I own, or get rid of it. Use it or lose it.
Works great to keep the total down (at 4 right now, shouldn't change).
I also have a standing resolution to not buy any more markers. Usually stick to that one, except when a really super deal pops up.
Others include sticking to 10-rounders and stick feed exclusively. That's been great. And then year-to-year stuff as I come up with it. Keep my head up when I run, improve my left-handed play, etc.

Mine? Finish the karta Automag. I think I'm waiting on a trigger frame (being machined, cougar's 86 frame). Outside of that, actually attach an on/off and go play with it. It works and shoots and all. Just need to use it.
Also, go play more.

find the fun again. I lost it last year, I was too worried about being "bad" and played so little, that almost every time I went out I was too worried about the negatives, and didn't focus on the fun of being out and aboot.
