The super bad paintball fever itch.
OK. It's March 3.

In ND, that means we have about a month until we can feasibly possibly maybe play some paintball. Even so, at the end of this month or beginning of April its definitely a cold and wet proposition, with a side order of mud.

My yearly paintball cycle looks like this:

On season: Play every weekend, spend all excess cash on paint and air.
Early off season: Play video games.
Mid off season: Get the itch, complain about winter.
Late off season: Get the itch bad, spend a pile of money on a bunch of un-necessary gear.

So far I've bought a new mask and... Five. Five new markers! Why did I buy five new markers? Because, getting them in the mail and all set up for playing (though I probably won't play with most of them) helps take the edge off. (Automag Classic R/T, BT TM7, PPS SuperStocker, Tiberius 9, CCM T2)

Last night, I sat up putting new macro fittings and CP hardware on my mags, changing the shell on my Halo, experimenting with the air set up on my Tac-One, etc. I think I've cleaned my gear 3 or 4 times this month.

I sat up talking with my buddy Kuhn until 10 past 3 in the morning talking about playing paintball and fiddling with gear.

Yes, I know there's winter ball, but there's a line... When it's -2 and windy, you don't want to play any damn winter ball.

Is anyone else stuck in this "can't play paintball" hell? How are you coping?

Sounds almost as bad as Canada!

I don't talk that way in real life... It was entirely for your Canadian benefit.

I buy and sell paintball gear in the off season and well some people setted up pistol only game in some indoor field at good price so im playing those when I can.

I could go to outdoor game in snow but it not much worth it imo as it slow me too much XD

I hope that it won't take too long for you to shake the rust off your game. But being that you play every week, you'll have plenty of time to get back into the swing of things.

Only a few more weeks, hang in there!!
