Okay so I've been wanting to go pump for a wihle, first I wanted to get a maverick, then I heard bad things about the mav, so now I'm looking into a sniper II. I have the money and everything, I'm willing to do this. But my dad feels that its just a waste of money. He says if I want to only shoot 500 balls a day than I should just pull the trigger less. I also say it will improve my skills and give me more of a rush, and challenge me and make me better, he calls it bull. I need help from you guys on this one. He also thinks paintball is a never ending money pit. And basically thinks I might as well flush a few hundred washingtons down the toilet. I need your help here guys.
