When and how did you first get introduced to paintball? When did you get hooked?
I got introduced to paintball back in the summer of 04. A friend of mine had talked his mom Into buying him a Spyder Electra for really no reason. We went out to a dry creek behind his house and took turns shooting each other with it.
Soon enough I was begging my parents to buy me one so I could shoot back.
My dad took me to Big 5 and I got a ZAP Winchester starter set for 60 bucks.
After that I discovered that we had a field in the area and as soon as I stepped foot out of the car in the parking lot I was hooked.
Played my first few games hiding in an apple crate in the back of the field haha.

My tournament career *if you can call it that* started with two seasons of second place finishes in the WCPS (West Coast Paintball Series). Every event I played, and in every division, I got second. [Read More…]
