Buddha has answered the call with his usual finesse and eloquence :)

1 Name
Jay Wijnhold.

2 Age

3 Where do you live
Rotterdam, Netherlands.

4 What do you shoot

5 What's your occupation
Self employed, working mostly within the entertainment industry, doing several things, sometimes at once.

6 When/how did you first get into paintball
I don't remember the exact year, but in the first half of the 1990's I experienced my first day of paintball in the same way so many get introduced to the sport: as a punter.
I had a great day. My first "kill" was hitting the top of some guys goggles, making half the contents of the painball draw a stripe across his scalp, and the other half ended up on hos goggles. I was hooked.
The second time I played was only a few weeks later, and I had already bought my own gun, along with some of my mates who were there on that day as well.

7 What was your first marker
The Sheridan VM-68 Magnum. That thing was HUGE. Fully set up, at least three feet long.

8 How often do you use p8ntballer
I try to swing by daily, but life and work sometimes gets in the way and I can't be on here for a few days. But I am here several times a week.

9 What first brought you to p8ntballer
A guy on the team I played for at the time, was very internet. Don't forget, I joined this community before you had to have an account, so internet wasn't as much a part of life as it is now. The guy pointed me to this site, explaining you could virtually rub elbows with some big industry names. He wasn't wrong.

10 What keeps you here
Loyalty to a group of guys I think of as friends and being a mod/admin here helps too. ;-)

11 Have you met many people from the forum
Yeah. That's what I love about this place. I met most of the mods on here, and became good friends with most of them as well. This also includes some of the mods of old, from when the site was still linked to PGI magazine. Guys such as Matt Tudor, Steve Duffy, Robbo, just to name a few. I never was a fantastic player, though I didn't suck, but being part of this site's mod squad introduced me to some big names as well. Got to hang with the likes of Niall Squires, Owen Ronayne, got invited to play as team p8ntballer.com with some of the mods of yesteryear, got hideously drunk with some of the current mods, it gave me VIP access at several Millennium events and the NPPL in Tampa Bay.
There are also several regular members that I met and git to hang out with.

12 What is your dream gun setup
Funny enough, I don't much care for the current generation of guns. Sure, they should great and weigh nothing, but the guns that really made my pants fit funny, I am lucky enough to have owned. My two favorites have to be the Eclipse AutoCocker with mechanical Blade frame and the Bob Long Dragon Intimidator. Those were awesome guns for their time.

13 What is the worst gun you have ever owned
That has to be a French made electro called the Tribal. It was fast as hell, but it came out when electronice guns first started showing up. It had a ramping board, but nobody had yet thought of adding eyes to the breach and the loaders weren't fast enough for these guns. The result was a gun that shot great for the first few shots, but then turned into a blender.

14 What is your favorite p8ntballer thread or post
Wow...that's difficult. I guess it depends on my mood, but right now I'd say the thread about the airplane taking off on a moving runway still cracks me up. Though I also very much enjoy Robbo's posts on the history of UK paintball.

15 If p8ntballer was yours for a day, what would you change
Nothing. Sorry for the boring reply.

16 Explain your username
When I first joined, I played for a team called Buddha Bandits and I was its third member.

17 Tourney, magfed or woods/scenario
I like them all, but my heart is with tournament paintball. I am a very competitive son of a bitch.

18 Who are your two favorite mods
What a horrible question! I feel like I'm doing a disfavour to whomever I don't mention! But since I have to name names, Robbo, for making me a mod in the first place, and Dusty, for being a truly great guy. And that has nothing to do with the rather large bottle of booze he got me at one time...

19 Who is your dream p8ntballer karaoke partner and what is the song
Easy. Cook$. Baby got back.

20 You're in the final of who wants to be a millionaire. Who on p8ntballer do you want to be your phone a friend
Robbo. He has a head full of useless information, just like myself. Between the two of us, there's not many questions that we wouldn't be able to answer.

21 Take this opportunity to clear up one misconception about yourself
Despite popular opinion, I am NOT a nice guy. If I like you, we're good, if I don't, you're in trouble.

22 You've been asked into the big brother house. Which five forum members would you take with you
Cook$. It's like having a live version of Jackass around. Piper, because I need somebody to punch (love you Pipes). Dusty, for having both somebody sensible around, as well as a drinking buddy. Ah hell, any of the mods I'd be able to kick it with.

23 You have the chance for dinner with any three people, living or dead. Who and why
My father and my maternal grandparents. Three people that are no longer among us, but who I still miss every day.

24 What is your favorite film and song
La Haine (watch that movie!!!!!)
Any song by myself! Heh heh... www.facebook.com/SolidJayMusic

25 Tell us one interesting and boring thing about yourself
I am an amateur historian, specialised in modern warfare.
I have girly eyelashes.

26 If you could give one piece of advice to people, what would it be?
In the words of the great warrior-poet, Sir T of Ice: "Don't be tripping if your luck's gone bad, be glad, it'll empty out the fake f*cking friends you had."

27 You're invisible for a day, what do you get up to
Not really sure, but it will probably involve bewbz.

28 If you could be any celebrity for a day, who would it be
Vladimir Putin.

29 What's your most embarrassing moment
Having to appear in court.

30 What is your proudest or most memorable moment in life?
Sounds sappy, but marrying my wife, the mother of my second born.

31 What is your worst habit
I am monumentally lazy.

32 Name your best paintballing experience
Not really one single moment, but being a part of this site has given me so much in paintball and introduced me to so many cool people, this has to be it.

33 What's the scariest thing that has ever happened to you
My first born daughter being taken out of country by my ex wife, without my consent and having to fly halfway across the world to get her back.

34 You're on death row, what's your last meal
Spare ribs.

35 First thing you'd do if you won the lotto
Buy myself a tricked out custom Range Rover

36 Tell us a joke
What do you call a black guy flying a plane?
The pilot, you racist jerk!

37 What's your porn star name
Mo Frisian
