Word of advice. Just take the abuse kid. I've found the "real world" is harsh and unforgiving and I'm only 21 so not much older than you.

While you're in school (by that I mean trade school/college/uni) the world shits on you. Once you graduate (get your ticket/diploma/degree) you will be the one shitting on the world.

6 months isn't that long and although you'll turn 18 when the season is winding down at least you can snag some "back to school" deals. Pretty much people are like "OMG, I can't pay tuition/rent/food this semester, I need to sell some stuff" or "Man.... I've accumulated so much random stuff, maybe I should sell some of it to start on a fresh school year (and while I'm at it I'll buy these different coloured highlighters, stapler, notebooks, post it notes, etc. only to never be seen again until the end of the semester)".

Calm down kid.
He's just making an innocent joke, and jumping down his throat with that (especially since he's a older member of the community and a retailer) is a bad idea. this community has a long memory.

best you can do is read the faq's repeatedly.
and use the search bar before posting.

No harm no foul. Once you are AV'd send me a pm with "you owe me an apology" with a link to this thread. I'll hook you up.

Also, another word of advice. NEVER ever ever offer up a testicle.

Apparently someone on these boards owes TokyoSeven their left testicle IIRC and "she" is intent on collecting it .

Twice the price of the US is actually a very good price in Canada, they use to be 3 -4 x the price.

I'm shopping for face protection and what i don't want is to get BB's on the face. So a full face mask would work best.

http://www.airsoftgi.com/product_inf...oducts_id=4792
would that thing work with googles? Basically, i don't want to have face injuries. (Broken teeth, bruises, welt, etc.)

its fabric right next to your face, so not really. also its gonna get as hot as bawlz. look for something rigid like the mesh face masks (not goggles)

also use this

There are plenty of threads about goggles and face protection

If you play at paintball fields keep in mind that some fields will stipulate full face protection (while others may say goggles only in which case the goggles+neoprene mask will work). As well usually it will have to follow ASTM standards and be ASTM certified.

Other than that, if you play at a private field or dedicated airsoft field the face mask will work to a degree. It's much better however to have a shemagh over your head since the "folds" will absorb the impact and slow down the projectile (due to the "crushing" effect of the folds in the headwrap and momentum transfer/dissipation kind of like the idea behind why speedballers wear the baggiest clothing ever so that paintballs lose velocity and their jerseys "catch" the paintball and it doesn't explode and mark them out).

Other than that the only other suggestion I can come up with is a mesh face mask. Make sure it's "stamped" mesh and not "woven" mesh, on Arnies there was a thread about the quality/design specs of each style of making the mesh and although at the velocities we play at it won't really break the mesh it's still better to have a safety (or "comfort") item overdesigned than designed within specifications but with no overhead. IIRC the woven mesh will be worn down and break after repeated 550-600 FPS strikes while the "stamped" mesh can take much higher velocities. I'll try to dig up the thread.
