Oh man if there is free rental and discount paint I am there! I was planning on getting a gun sometime too, but I would have to buy a really nice one and those cost soooooo much.

I been searching around for stores and different markers. I found to start off smart parts makes an electronic marker that is tournament worthy for 224 or 164 if you want the older model but the extra 60 is worth it (easier to maintain).
the Ion XE and the Ion respectively. check them out. these are more for speedball but that is more available in Portland since I can't drive
for woods ball there is even a cheaper but still good one made by tippmann called the A-5 it is not electric though.

That does seem like it would be a pretty decent gun. It doesn't say how the gun will continue to function though, I want to make sure that I will be able to use it for awhile with out it breaking on me.

The ion is supposed to be a durable gun. As long as it is oiled and cleaned it is supposed to last a long time. This is the easier to clean model therefore probably going to last longer. check out the reviews at pbreviews they are apparently the go to site http://www.pbreview.com/products/reviews/?sort=new&prod=5502

Probably what I am getting. It is the extra stuff that starts to get expensive. We should go once before we buy though so we know what style we play.

I have already been, I am a tactical player. I take advantage of terrain and conserve ammunition. I like to get the other team distracted by my teammates and then shoot them while they aren't paying attention.

Makes sense. Only problem is there aren't really any woodsball feilds near school. Ever play speedball? I havent but it looks fun https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5zJCo6IbQmA. Pust that is the only thing nearby really. faster pace but cool looking.

Just so you know the two places are
http://www.portlandpaintball.us/ AND
http://www.paintball-online.com/field/ this one is attached to a paintball store
The second one is usally rated better. but it is just outside vancover so unless you know someone who can drive it is harder to get to but the feild looks better.

Yeah I have played speedball before. I'm not sure if we were playing right though, we were always trying to capture the flag instead of kill the entire other team. lol

Simple break down. Front man get up close and personal uses less paint and a smaller air tank. usually a smaller guy as he plays in the snake low and long bunkers and is agressive as he got to move forward. Back man has lots of ammo and sprays and prays he keep people under pressure. Mid guy does a bit of both. Equipment tends to vary a bit but basically the same. you seem a bit tall to be up front

I would tend to agree. When I played we used a diamond shape, I was playing right mid. The goal was to have our front and back guy spray all over the place, while me and the left mid picked off the enemies while they were hiding. It worked pretty well, even when I was the only one left we still won.

Yeah, but I have a very good feeling that Jordan will go, and who knows who else we can get to go, tons of people love to go paint balling.

Very true, having a constant team would mean that we all got used to each others playing styles and would own most other teams.
