Geo 3.1 with custom anno and engraving, Spire and Empire carbon bottle.

5) What's your occupation?
Energy Services Manager for an Energy Management company (building control systems for Lighting, HVAC etc)

Check it daily, contribute where I can!

9) What first brought you to p8ntballer?
Like a few others I came looking for gear and ended up staying!

10) What keeps you here?
Really enjoy the community spirit here, the wisdom and stories of the older and more experienced members and of course the reliable classified section!

11) Have you met many people from the forum?
Probably more than I know having played CPPS for the past two years (and this year)

12) What is your dream gun setup?
Love my current set up of my GEO and Spire, next step is a lighter tank!

13) What is the worst gun you've ever owned?
The mini, just hated it, it was a rushed purchase which I regretted however I upgraded to an Etek and then my beloved Geo!

14) What's your favourite p8ntballer thread or post?
This is probably common but Robbo's history threads are a great read! Always have a chuckle at the newbies and their "why can't I buy stuff yet" threads also!

15) If p8ntballer was yours for a day what would you change?
In all honesty I think it's great as it is, I'd probably be less lenient with the speed posters but I think most have fair intentions!

16) Explain your username?
Nothing fancy there, just my name!

17) Tourney, magfed or woods/scenario?
Tourny! Don't mind the others but CPPS has me hooked!

18) Who are your two favourite mods?
I don't think I really have any favourites..

19) Who is your dream p8ntballer karaoke partner and what is the song?

20) You're in the final of who wants to be a millionaire. Who on p8ntballer is your phone a friend?
Got to be my Dad although he's rarely on p8ntballer...

21) Take this opportunity to clear up one misconception about yourself?
It's all true unfortunately!

22) You've been asked into the big brother hows and you can take five forum members. Who and why?
Kelvin Gaffney - He's funny and he'd have my back
Don't really know that many other members that well... Think Missy and Robbo would be a good laugh, not sure who else though.

23) You have the chance for dinner with any 3 people living or dead. Who and why?
My Nan who has passed - Just to see her again
David Beckham - Boyhood football idol
Jay-Z - Legend

24)What is your favourite film and song?
Film - Big Daddy (Adam Sandler)
Song - Dakota by Stereophonics (have some of the lyrics in my tattoo!)

25) Tell us one interesting and one boring fact about yourself.
Interesting - Does anyone really consider themselves interesting? Can't think of anything, I must be 100% boring!
Boring - I can remember loads of really pointless events etc from the past but forget things that I have done (or should have done) in the last few days/weeks, it's incredibly frustrating! Also I can touch type up to about 80 words per minute, very useful!

26) If you could give one bit of advice to people, what would it be?
One piece of advice, ever? Not everyone thinks like you do and not everyone will consider others before acting. Don't hold it against them, it's not always their fault... (Of course some people are just ****s) :)

27) You're invisible for a day. What do you get up to?
This is a tricky one, if I think of something funny/interesting I'll stick it in as a reply on the thread!

28) If you could be any celebrity for a day who would it be?
Any of the Manchester United strikers, to play at Old Trafford (and be amazing at football) would be a dream come true!

29) What's your most embarassing moment?
I'm prone to opening my mouth too quickly and then looking a bit stupid... Nothing specific here but 'jumping the gun' and then having to back-track or apologise has happened a fair few times, I should really work on that!

30) What is your proudest or most memorable moment in life?
Probably my wedding day last year in August, amazing day surrounded by family and friends and marrying my beautiful wife!

31) what is your worst habit?
Having the last word.... All the time, it's annoying for me also!

32) Name your best paintballing experience?
CPPS 2014, our first year playing... There's two of us alive vs their back left, I'm in the bags snapping, he's snapping back. My snake player comes in-field as I load up my last pot, I continue to trade out with him and then my rotor starts whirring away, I look to my right and my team-mate is walking off hand on head, sh1t! I look up and snap at their player again, my marker stops firing and I'm out of paint. He then makes the strangest move and runs from back centre where he'd moved to and sprints to the back right, I see my chance and leg it for the gate, I slide in (this was breakout so no strict buzzer rule at this point) and touch the start gate as he lights me up. I was in before he hit me and win the point, no paint and with a man alive on both teams, felt pretty good! (Played crap ever since!)

33) What's the scariest thing that's ever happened to you?
Had a couple of low impact bumps in the car, nothing too bad though. Don't think I've had any near-death experiences or anything that interesting though...

34) You're on death row, what's your last meal?
PIZZA! If you have a choice it's always Pizza!

35) First thing you'd do if you won the lotto?
There's so many things I'd love to do, I'd love to open an all-singing, all-dancing indoor speedball venue! I'd also like to build a 4G pitch for my football club (Mellor FC). Those would be the big things aside from clearing a couple of loans etc and paying off the mortgage, the boring stuff!

36) Tell us a joke
Liverpool FC!

37) What's your porn star name? (name of your first pet and your mother's maiden name)
Pip Gibson
