I need a new gun - one to make me better at paintball

I have reached my zenith - probably two years ago. Now I am going downhill. There are several factors at play here:

1) My athleticism is worse overall. Age and injuries play a part in this

2) Competition: the competition at the field is becoming increasingly better. To the point where I went from being in the top five players there to well, probably in the double digits now...

3) why bother. I am just going to buy a f***ing electro, use it once, and sell it at a loss....

4) or maybe a blazer? nice single trigger? PLaying mech isn't bad, is it? But **** how long will it take to get one? 7 months? (cause I'd want it milled)

5) how is brining more firepower going to 'actually' make me better... I will still just be me, just with more balls per second... And a free hand I guess.

6) Does this happen to all of us as we get older? Once you've peaked? But kids could be peaking at 20 or so, based on years playing + age, I mean there has to besome sort of formula...

7) There is a realy nice EGO10 for sale for $550, and an empire resurrection for $490.... but WTF, I don't want to run a big hopper on one, maybe I should try my hand at making an EGGO?

8) Should I make the EGGO before I buy a gun? what if I can't even make one?

9) I dunno...

Waffle making can be full of challenges as well...

Tough spot to be in.

I feel you old man Mar. I finally paid off my second hand texas storm g6r, borrowed an slp tank from my team captain and proceeded to be an awesome target for everyone else yesterday. I honestly don't think I hit one person all day. My team captain, Rowlf, put one on my mask on the concrete field, we switched sides, he put two on my mask the next game. We went to speedball, he blasted me in the right hand, switched sides, and he shot me in the right hand again....
It's still way better than airsoft and I wouldn't have wanted to spend my Labor day any other way.

Dude.

You and your CCM are still feared on the field.

An electro will do nothing for you. You will just miss us faster. Or kill us faster and then we will all be bored.

I totally think changing up your gun can and will make things fun for you again. I played most of this year with my mag! Had a blast!

Get the blazer or a cocker and have some fun.


And take a look at the last link in my sig...

You don't need a better gun, you need a funner gun. If you're worried about being competitive try tourney ball

I still think an open class CCM with a small tank and a winchester is the best setup for me. I have tried everything else and this is what I like the best and do just fine with it.

It sounds like you're concerned about your ranking at recball?

You're doing it wrong. Play with a marker you love and people you like, stop when you get tired or sore and talk **** with the other old guys.

Look forward to being the smarter guy, not the fastest.

I'm old and slow (I run so slow I've been mistaken for a bunker) and I play maybe twice a year. I still have fun as I tend to play with cool folks and marker(s) I love.
