What I did not expect, though, is how their excitement was contagious. Found myself wanting to get back into the game again, and I have immersed myself rather quickly.
I was asked if I wanted to go to a team building event at a local park here in the Lou a couple weeks ago. We went out to the park and we got these lovely little BT-4's and some really ugly paint. It made me crave the game and an actual marker that has had some love put into it. I used to be a cocker hobbyist before making the stock class switch. Everything feels so foreign now.

Also you gain a lot of skill playing that way as I'm sure you know from your past experience. If you hate 12 grams go modified and put a tank on there and call it a day. If you're already cool with nelsons and the phantom in particular then your halfway there to being a happy successful player. Also the phantom is bullet proof. So reliable I don't think they can break even if you try.
Welcome back bro and all the best
I have this feeling that I'm going to end up with a setup similar to this. My biggest fear is that I end up not having partners to play with and the sport dies out again. lets hope this doesn't happen.
