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.

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.

Doc.

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.
