So I'm new...

Hey there, I'm pretty new to paintball. Make that very new. I've played maybe 15 times, but I'm addicted. I've used an autococker once or twice but other than that I'm exclusively pump (I'm rockin' an s6 until I can get a T2). Add that to the fact that I'm a girl and you get what I am assuming is a rare breed? My mother-in-law is one of the only other female players I've ever met, let alone another female who plays pump. I know that we can't be the only ones and I'm curious to see what the paintball world is like for a female in a male dominated sport.

So hey MCB, what's up?

My wife has been playing for about 10 years now. She shoots a pump exclusively as well.

Another Canadian chick?!?

Wow... in my estimation, the women of Canada are giving their men a run for the money on the toughness scale.

Welcome to MCB.

Welcome aboard! You've come to the right place. Our female contingent, a few years ago, was an army of one. It's nice to see it getting larger.

Welcome to MCB.

In the world of scenario play there are many more women in the game.
My scenario team has 19 full time members and 3 are women.

Welcome to MCB, I'm sure my wife will be stopping by this thread to welcome you also. She is a girl with a pump also.
