You know how people joke they've hit the end of the Internet?
Well, for me, I think I've hit the end of paintball guns...
I never thought I'd say it.
But suddenly, new/old/unique guns just don't interest me. I've shot probably 70+ different markers over the years, and now I'm perusing the BST's and eBay, looking for something interesting, and I just can't find anything, particularly in the electro department. I don't even have one at the moment, because I haven't felt I've needed one for almost a year. Still don't, but seeing as it's the one type of marker I'm lacking I thought I'd look. I never expected to come up empty and so utterly unimpressed.
My eNMEy is everything I feel I could ever need in a mech.
My pre-2K RF sniper with CCM bits is all I want in a pump (still have a few mods planned but it's not lacking anything seriously enough to warrant another gun).
And I have my custom SP1/eNMEy/Ion hybrid pistol for my limited paint play.
The one frontier I have any vague interest in is First Strikes, and frankly, none of the current, more reliable offerings do anything for me.
I just... I don't even know what to do with myself with my inner gunwhore dead and gone...

Tibs at this point are included in the "bored with" category. SAR-12 rates as sort of cool, but not $1000 cool.

We have nothing to fear but fear itself. Apart from pain. And maybe humiliation and obviously death. And failure. But apart from fear, pain and humiliation, failure and the unknown and death we have nothing to fear but fear itself. Who’s with me?

Shot 70+? Heck, I own 70+.
Except for a few rare old markers (like a 707, or an AGA .62) or some oddball foreign makes (like a Badger) or some of the latest cutting-edge new markers (like an LV-1) you'd be hard-pressed to name a marker I haven't shot.
Shift it up. Play limited paint (take the electro out on an open game, but with only 100 rounds) or try out a game you haven't before (big game, scenario, tourney, etc.)
Or take a break. Quit playing altogether for a time- weeks or even months if need be. I used to run a field, and eventually got completely bored with playing. Then, a few years later, I wanted to play so badly I did everything I could to put together some private games, or I'd drive three hours to find a game.
.... And then I got bored again. And then more time passed, and another field opened up nearby, and I enjoy playing again.
You're not the only one.

I can't say I've ever gotten bored, and I've shot nowhere near 70 markers, let alone more than. But, I do find myself craving less. I wanted more markers, but then I went and played with my mech cocker, and it was enough. I only got my PM8 so that I was competitive and not outgunned by the electro players. Is there a long list of markers Iwould like, of course there is, which could be why iI dreamed of a mini mag last night. I agree with doc, hold off on buying and just play.

It's called contentment. It's okay. It seems odd, but it's really ok.
When you are dead, you don't know that you are dead. It's difficult only for others.
It's the same when you're stupid.
