Hey friends! Its been a super long time once again, and I have no idea who actually still checks this forum... Pretty sad how we've all grown up and gone our separate ways, but interesting nonetheless. The memories and posts will always remain! I was browsing through as bit and reminiscing a lot tonight.

You guys all meant so much to me when I was a kid. I looked up to a you all and truly saw you guys as good friends (kinda weird seeing as I was a 14yr old on the internet talking to strangers.. but I'm sure you know what I mean). I remember being so excited to post and discuss things here with the collective minds that broke away from the Tippmann Forum we were all fed up with. We used to all be so passionate about paintball and I never thought that would fade.

I would absolutely love to hear from whoever may catch this post!  In charge

I usually check in every day or two.  Your post sums up my words to the T.  Only I was a lot more dumb back in the day.  I love how I got the sir-posts-too-much title.

I also looked up to all of the guys on here.  We had a tight knit group like a family, it was pretty awesome.

I am in college to get a business degree, as a fall back for if I get disabled on the police force and can no longer do that.

Otherwise I work on my Mustang, make it happier Smile

Even though I don't play anymore, I still want your xmag TH1. That thing is just so beautiful.

I'm just doing my college thing. Had an early valentines dinner on Saturday and that went well.

Well said TH.  It's been forever.  Glad we could enjoy this experience while it lasted.  It was deffinetly a great getaway from the Tippmann Forum.  I'll never have a regret from this forum.  It's weird how we did all grow up.  You can even tell by looking at the old posts how we matured a little here.  Wonder if YWSM ever checks in.  Haven't heard from him in quite a while, let alone everyone else.

Ah good to see some of you guys are checking in every so often. It is really funny looking at old posts and seeing how much I'v changed personally. Oh youth....

One thing I noticed that really hasn't changed about me is the way I absolutely love to help people with the utmost patience. Back in the Tippmann forum days I remember how I was always the guy to help the noobs with even the most redundant questions; I knew what it was like to be a kid who just got their new 98 Custom and needed advice so I helped. Thats how a lot of us were and how many of us got to Paintapalooza.

To this day I absolutely love helping people. I'm in art school now (photography) and have become a lab monitor. I get to set things up for younger students, show them how to do things properly, and offer my own techniques and insights. It feels great! I'm fixed on becoming a teacher at this point. In many ways, the camera is now my paintball marker. (kind of a BIG downgrade lol)

Bad news too.... I sold my mag this summer  Confused

YOU SOLD THE MAGGG!!!?!?!?!?

Sadness =/

But I have to agree with everything you say. I stop at car accidents and such all the time to make sure everythings ok, I am a cpr instructor and an eagle scout and such, I know I can help out a good deal if I need to.

You guys are all a great bunch of people, even though robocop hated me for years, probably still does  Tounge

Even though I don't play, if you put that mag up for sale on here, I might have bought it on the spot depending on money issues.
Darn

G36, you suck. Ahhaha

What is everyone up to for spring break? I'm headed to Chicago for the weekend to meet the girl's rents. Probably will go see a museum or two.

I'm working a 40 hour week also. I need the monies. Too bad it's only a work study job on campus which means minimum wage. But $300 for the week is better than what I will start with.

At least you have a job though, it could be worse.

Plus there's always room to advance somewhere Smile
