I want to start designing paintball guns and making them with mabey a couple other guys and make things cool enought so that people want to buy them and have that creat a buisness that's my dream.

If you are interested in engineering, I would highly recommend college. I have 2 brothers that have engineering degrees and they both do very well. One is at CAT with a mech engineering degree, the other works for a power company with a electrical engineering degree.

You can always build your markers on the side or as a hobby. Carter builds them out of his garage.

From the business side, you have to sell alot of markers to make a profit large enough to support you. Paintball is a niche market, pistol paintball is an even smaller niche. If you start your own business, you have to know the business side + the design/build side. May not hurt to get a double major in Engineering + Accounting, or get a bachelors in Engineering and a MBA.

Continue to dream! I like your drawings! Good luck!

follow your dreams but be *very* careful not to mix art and creative passion up with business... they're a very challenging combination and it may not work out unless you have a very good team of the right people to make it work. business success requires a completely different set of skills aside from creative passion, design talent and manufacturing experience... I learned that the hard way

to top it off, it's quite a tough industry, as sniper97 mentioned. especially the niche portions of the industry (which are the most rewarding IMO)
