    Hi all.
    After a long break I decided to go and give it another try as a walk on. Dug out the old kit bag gave the eclipse impulse a service (top marker back in the day ) with my vl hopper with a x board inside only then to find out my bottle was over 15 years old and now scrap so managed to borrow a bottle and gave it a blast. The old girl went well but soon found out it was easily 10-15 balls a second to slow. How the game has changed from the kit side of things.
    I started playing as most do as a customer at a local site then started marshalling. After working there a while playing walkons and a few bigger games decided to form a team called park rangers and start playing tournament's. We started with a new series called king of the hill from the midlands master from memory there were 7 new / beginners teams we did well winning the first round and going on to complete the series doing very well. After our success we jumped in to the main masters competition and also started playing a series run by Steve bull played in both for a couple of years. The question is can a 40 year old guy get back into the sport of paintball with new kit .

    You're looking to do speedball tournaments again? There seems to be a division for just about every ability and intensity level.
    And yeah the kit has changed immensely. Semi autos were brand new when i started ... nvm 15 bps electronic guns etc.

    Thought the same thing a year ago (at 46), met @mikey1975 at OTE (treading old haunts for the first time) a few weeks later I'm playing CPPS...

    careful now :D
