Hey. I just realized Saturday that I need a pair of flex's for a similar reason. I have to tilt my head too far back to drink bourbon in my proshields.

i spent probably 15 minutes going through google images trying to find a picture of somebody with a rolled up flex with a cigarette hanging out of their mouth.

i remember people smoking on the field...

That's cold... and also the reason I bought my first real cigarette case.

I remember smoking on the field playing woodsball and especially during scenarios with lots of on-field downtime. Every now and then someone would see the smoke drifting out from behind a bush and start shooting.

Smoking ON the field? Never seen that.

I've known, and still know, quite a few smokers. I think they're just accustomed to limited lung performance. One of our group smokes a ton, but he's been through worse in the Army - i don't even think he's able to breathe clean air anymore.

I have. Dude played in some of those JT zip-off pants that you turn into shorts, which he did. He had cut a small hole into his Proflex and just held it there the whole time. He'd occasionally take it out and tap off the ash during a lull in the shooting.

I'm 35 and a smoker and I have no trouble keeping up because the video game/glued to smartphone generation is lazy and out of shape. I have to push my 11 year old son to keep up with me.

depends. During the warmer months I smoke and ride a bike. It's all about keeping lung capacity up. I routinly power up hills that the younger generation has trouble with. Maybe it's just persistance.

Winter months kill me though. Not getting the proper amount of exercise and drinking and smoking indoors at the bar... terrible for the lungs and gut. I normally never smoke indoors except at the bar. Not smoking in doors will help.

Gee, I wonder who you could mean... And you must not have been paying attention! I actually distinctly remember shooting you while I was smoking on our outlaw field one time, lol.
