drooling over the Splatmaster ads in Shotgun News, and clipping out the page to tape to my wall.
watching an M69 paint grenade blow up almost as soon as the pin was pulled, and 3 angry players from that guys team had to exit the game.
getting neck guards as part of the rental fee, and required to use them along with our JT whippersnappers
seeing a semi for the first time in a game (a PMI III) and being awestruck. And getting stitched across the top of my head with it during the game.
splitting an unmarked brown case of 2000 (or was it 2500?) crappy plain white balls with 8 guys, and thinking we were living large.
when blue paint wasn't allowed at a lot of fields, since it supposedly left a permanent dark mark on clothes.

I remember when (not so long ago):
All the 'cool' players used 'cockers.
All the cool companies made a 'cocker
I was watching a tournament and a guy pulled 9bps on a 'cocker and I thought "wow, that's some serious firepower!".

Anybody else remember Paint Check magazine? They were pretty cool for their time. A nice community vibe about their articles.

When paint came in 3000 round box and it lasted for a few months. After you split it with 3 guys.
When the quick change was an upgrade.
When General Joe would send you case of 3000 nelspot tubed in your choice of different colors.
When command post took off with everyones money.
Being the first one shot on the field by an Auto mag the week they were released.

I remember when paint averaged $.25 per ball. (Some guys thought it would be more accurate to just throw quarters at the other team. )
I remember watching in amazement as the NH Wild Geese were powdering their case of paintballs. (I'd never seen that much paint in such a small space before.)
I remember when the hot mod was the extended cocking knob. (Not long before the home made pump became the hot mod.)
I remember when Sheridan v Nelspot was like Ford v Chevy. (I still like Nespots better. )
I remember when off field safety consisted of using common sense.

Hence the slingshot comment - I remember lusting after a Razorback and finally got one last year.
I played occasionally between 87ish and 91ish(still got the safety goggles somewhere), then lost interest due to costs. I came back 2 years ago, indirectly due to Doc Nickel's website - I found it looking for info on anodizing. Being an adult now(well, at least that's what the courts say! )and a machinist, paintball guns in general have all these nifty moving parts, just right for somebody to mess with.. The next thing I know, I'm working on semiauto conversion bolts for Sheridans, and Eyeballing 5 foot lengths of Merlin Extrusion.

sold for fish tacos
... when the IAO was something to take the time to go visit.
... when an electronic gun meant you just spent $1000 on a whole gun or about $200 for an upgrade
.. when a powered loader was a revvy, and nothing else
