O I do and I like paintballing a lot, I want to get a tippmann in a year or two because the gun I have right now is a spyder victor and everybody who I play with has a Tippmann 98 custom pro so I have a MAJOR disavantage.

I have never heard of that company before, if I were you I would just go with a Tippmann and spend the extra money, it's worth it in the long run. They can undure so much and still work it's amazing and the customs you can customize a lot and they shoot really well.

Have you been able to get a gun yet? I'v researched and talked around and I'v decided to up my cost expenses and save up for this gun, I really like the look and the stock.

O I like woodsball a lot though I haven't played speedball really since it's too expensive for me since i'm too young though next year I hope to get a job since I'll be 16 then and go to some tourney's with some of my friends that can drive me there with them. Do you win a lot of stuff or is it basically just like spending money to have fun, I know by me if you win you can win stuff otherwise it's like 100+ for three or five people entry fee plus paint.

In some of the bigger tourneys you can win some money, but usually it is just enough to cover all of the fees for playing in the tourney. In the smaller ones you win gear, like markers, paint, packs and that kind of stuff. It just depends on the size of the tourney and who is puting it on. Yeah speed ball can get expesive, you tend to go through a lot of paint. On a typical weekend I go through1500-2000 rounds of paint.

Getting sponsord is not easy. You need to have a team first and play in a couple of tourneys first. After that you have something that you can take to a company to try and get a sponsorship from them. Also try and look at companies other then paintball stores and paintball related compaines. Some times getting your local tirshirt making company to sponsor you by getting you shirts is easier then anything else.

Cool thanks for the advice. Just curious I was wondering if you have any experience with the rikochet apache hopper or freak barrels because I think I might be getting those eventually.
