Thanks Esteves...<p>Those pics are great. I knew you'd come through and represent the rare Imola Red M-Coupe.<p>Take it easy...<p>Haim<p><i>: Sorry so late posting, but I extended my stay over the weekend to hang out in Los Angeles for awhile. So, I'm probably the last to post pictures from the Santa Barbara event.<p>: The ********** was fun and we finally got to meet some of the "virtual" friends we've made on this board.<p>: I must admit, LA nightlife is A LOT of fun. <p></i>

I had played Paintball since in started many years ago! Back with the old single shot Nelspot! Had a ton of camos from around the world (Brit SAS was my favorite!). It was the ONLY sport that tool me away from racing when I got burned out of SCCA. I played with 2 of the top teams at the time - Those Guys Mercanaries and Sudden Death. I practically LIVED at Conquest in Malibu, Ca. And what a RUSH it was at Sat Cong Village when they had the BIG ONE! Over 1500 players on a side spread out over 6 playing fields! A normal game was only about a total of 20-30, so IMAGINE what it was like when 30 of us were holding the hootches and I was stuck in the bamboo tower in the Viet village, . . . when about 150 of them hit us!!!! All I could do is DUCK! But so much paint came thru the bamboo, that I was SOAKING in it :)

I didnt know you took a picture of my glacier blue 1990 E34 525i. The E34 M5 and I were the only E34 examples. Was it the 1 week old paint job that attracted your attention(I know you were probably focusing on the purple M3)?<p>Chris B

hehehehehe,<p>Good old Nelspot. When i first got into it I actually had the greatest gun out there, the Sheridan PGP. It made the "SplatMaster" and the "nelspot" look like pea shooters.<p>I was heavily into it about 6 or 7 years ago as well, and thats when I did the crazy upgrade and got myself a custom built auto-cocker. I can now think of much better things to spend $1500 on, thats for sure! But let me tell you, that gun SMOKES. The one downside is that i am commonly the first person taken out, I guess they figure the guy with the chrome and anodized blue/purple gun must be good (but of course they are wrong!)<p><i>: I had played Paintball since in started many years ago!

Man, I remember when that SMG first came out! Scared the **** outta everyone, that is, . . . . until it was found that the smaller pellets hardly ever broke on impact.<p>I had a constant air long barrell Sheridan for awhile with a slick and QUIET metal silencer (didn't warp like the PVC versions, didn't hurt acuracy, and was VERY quiet!!!!!), and used the Aimpoint 2000 red dot scope. Heavy as HELL, but very very deadly acurate, even at long range! And as I can't run too well, I became quite adept at being a sniper. 1 shot - 1 kill for me! At Conquest there was a village there (was used for the old "A-Team" TV show), and they even named this one building as Rock's Roost (my nickname in racing and paintball was Rocky) after me. When I was hidden deep in there, I had a great "killing" zone, and could never be rousted out of there.<p>But the Sheridan became TOO heavy, and was hard to **** & shoot fast, so I went to a long barrell Nelspot. But that wasn't no where near as good, sadly.<p>There was one game at Conquest that for once folks listened up to me, and THAT game went into the history books! WE had the village, and just before the horn blew to start, we got ready to ALL hide in the buildings, but leave just 2 guys out in the open. When the horn sounded, we made a hell of a lot of noise to make them think we left by the south end of town. When their scouts checked out the village, our 2 guys in the open made as if they paniced, and so that entire enemy team rushed the village. Well guess what???? When they got into the center of town, you couldn't see daylight there was so much of OUR pellets flying at them. Wiped them out to the LAST man! :)<p>And early on, I used to wear a ski mask until, . . . a buddy of mine (on the other side) and I both came around the back of a hootch and shot at each other. I got nailed right smack dab in the forehead and almost got a concussion! For almost a MONTH I was nicknamed "Bullseye" cuz of the mark it left. After that, I got a "Fritz" kevlar helmet and never left home without it!<p>Oh, and I also got to play along with, and get to know Ricky Schroeder (Silver Spoons on TV). He was really a great kid, and so was his Father! Also met Janet Jackson one day, as she likes the sport and came to watch! And the one team I was also on - JUST-US League, was composed of a bunch of Hollywood film folks and radio disc jockeys, as well as a well known band at the time (though I now forgot their name, sadly). Oh I MISS those days!<p>In another Tournement game, I talked Ricky out of killing me, ha ha, and prevented his team from getting our flag - and we WON the Tournement and got an awesome trophy!<p>But the sad news, . . . when I was relocated by my company, the approved movers by my company, Graebel Van Line, Inc, parked their truck in the middle of nowhere overnight and it was STOLEN! I lost EVERYTHING I owned - all my trophies (car racing and paintball), all my rare BattleTech figures, racing posters (many RARE!!!!!), my paintball stuff, my car racing stuff, ecvery damn thing I ever had! I am STILL in limbo as we fight this in court - since Oct 3rd, 1997!

I remember the days where one shot one kill ws the name of the game.<p>Nowasays it is a little more aggresive. You never just shoot one ball, you shoot 5 minimum, you will probably get 2-3 bouncers, and if youdon't aim for a "breaker" spot, like the gun, hand or head you might be pumping non breaking balls at the guy all day!<p>My Blue and Chrome baby is a totally tricked our autococker, and I tell ya, you empty that 100 round hopper in about 15 seconds when you are spraying the opposition.<p>Most people wear baggy clothes meaning you get WAY more boubcers, all guns have Adjustable spring rates, so there is ALWAYS a speed limit, making breaks against baggy thick clothes REALLY hard.<p>I don't dislike the modern incarnation of balling, it just costs more money!<p><i>: Man, I remember when that SMG first came out!
