I was playing one afternoon with a bunch of co workers at a indoor field. Big mouthed little kid with an Angel, pants, jersey, gloves, the whole 9 yards starts yelling loudly in the setup area that no one on the field was better than he was. Preppy dad stads there grinning from ear to ear.

The game starts kid hides for 2 min then comes out behind everone else. 2 or 3 players on our team were flanking the kid, he sees them turns and runs right towards me. I was playing with my old PGP pistol and had just put in a fresh 12 gram. A single shot to his chest took him out.

He stomps off the field. ten seconds later I was tagged and also exited the field. When I came off the kid is crying that someone was cheating and had shot him unfarly. The father is screaming that who ever had done this had better come clean and say he was sorry.

So I walk up to him ( I'm 50 years old... the father is about 30) and tell him that a single shot from my PGP had done the deed. He then starts yelling at the field owner that I was using a illegal marker and should be banned. The field owner starts to laugh and says my PGP is old school and quite welcome any time.

Father yells at his son ... we are leaving ... I don't want you playing with cheaters

I have never seen that kid again

woah...who the hell are you? lol

also, quite epic. Nothing like pwning noobs with an old school marker. And yes, 13 year olds can be quite the pain, but to be honest, I've seen more douchebaggedness in older "pro" players than some of these spoiled kids. Not saying that the spoiled youngin's are bad though lol.

Edit: and my 2 cents on the issue: I think that everyone, whether they can afford better or not, should start paintball with a stacked-tube semi-auto with a gravity fed hopper, playing woodsball. It will get them into the sport, teach them the rules, and really teach them what it's like to be the guy with the sub-par gear. also, I believe that woodsball is more "fun" oriented where speedball is more competition oriented, and thus kids should learn to have fun with paintball first then move up to the speedball fields.

Just my 2 cents.

eh the way i look at it. (old thread but who cares)

If the parents can afford it for them then it doesn't matter. But the rental guy should of walked off after the kid shot him instead of turning around and shooting him back. It's rec ball and you should always follow your fields rules.

wait, was the tippmann guy shot by a kid that was already out? or by kid that was still in the game?
If the kid was out, then ideally you want to let your field refs manage it, but the lighting up is understandable.
If the kid was still in, though, there is no excuse for being a douche like that. You get shot, you go out, doesn't matter how much you dislike the guy that shot you.

I only play for fun & try to show the kids that cheating is no way to play. I have a old stacked tube, gravity feed hopper and play 2 or 3 times a year. You are correct some older players are jerks, but trash talking and then crying because he got hit.... does require a bonus ball some times

I'm 13, I have a good 'ol 98 C, my parents buy most of my things since I don't have allowance, but they still don't buy anything that I want. If it's my B-Day or Christmas, then it usually means one upgrade.

The only thing I've buyed myself was a Red Dot Sight :/

im 13 and Ive got a Dye DM9 along with all the gear and stuff. But i worked for the gun, I made $4000 last year mowing lawns and reffing soccer and baseball and i got the gun and gear. Everybody says that im the best player at our field, Ive beat some really good refs in 3 on 1 and i dont consider myself bratty, i mean i do brag but thats only when i win those 3 on 1 games, or somehow get out of being bunkered by 3-4 people otherwise i sound like an idiot. The only time that i got anything having to do with paintball from my parents was when i got a Regulator for my birthday and that was all i got. I consider my family poor so if my mom says she needs $200 ill give her the money because i know its for the family or my sisters and i dont mind that because its just money and i get $4000 of it each year.

Please everybody dont go making steriotypical comments about 13 year olds with good paintball guns because there are some that do buy the gear themself and have to work hard for it.

Fancy Gear...

Well I'm 13 and I have a bunch of fancy gear and a Etek 2, but I worked for them. It weren't no "Christmas Present, or Birthday Present" it was cold hard work that got what I wanted.

I'm 13 and I payed for just about all of my equipment on my own. I really don't like it when people say that ALL 13 year olds are spoiled brats because all of my friends who play paintball bought almost everything themselves. Although, there are some spoiled 11,12, and 13 year olds with Geo 2s and Etek 3s at my field that I could beat easily with my Ion and my awesome blue sweats lol.

Im a 12 year old kid with a Tippmann A5 with a flatline barrel and remote line. I earned it all by working with my grandpa on the farm. Totally worth the money.

Im 13, I just sold 98c (to a friend who just got $500 off betting for the superbowl :O) just ordered a Invert mini. i worked for the all the money. My friend (hes not bratty, just rich.) Hasn't paid a cent on paintball, but has a Ion with a Rotor hopper, virtue board, etc. Not as bad as kiddies with egos, but hes kinda annoying when he brags about having a better gun than mine.

Won't be true when the Mini gets in. And I don't care what marker someone has, in the end, it's all about who's on the trigger end that will determine who's going to walk off.

I already pwn him. He thinks he rules the field, so he just stands up and sprays us all, so I longball him. His dad is even worse, with his G3 Spec-r. He unloaded a whole hopper on me, while i was standing behind a tree a third my size, and didnt hit me once.

A gun is a gun they all serve the same purpose, it is the user that matters.
