Started paintballing back in '02 with the original Windsor Airsoft Club guys. Mostly woodsball and milsim. About 03-04 we heard about airsoft and slowly players started transitioning over.
It was about this time I made my brilliant first post asking about getting paintball goo out of my MP5's barrel. Was flamed to hell as per ASC's policy on noobs. Been playing ever since.
