Great. You can start by reading the FAQ section. Theres a lot of good information there. So much as to keep you busy for a while.

Depends, you can play once a year, once a week, or somewhere in between (once a month or once every 2 weeks).

Get AV'ed and you'll have access to a wider variety of guns. Definitely do not get the Walmart/CT cheapo crap.

Basic gear,

Boots (regular hiking boots is what I use however a lot of people will use military hiking boots)
Some sort of load bearing vest or carrier (I use a knockoff RAV vest)


Killrag (red bandanna or piece of fabric to mark you've been killed so people hopefully don't shoot at you)
Radio (like a Motorola SABER) (necessity for milsims however not really needed for smaller "weekly" skirmishes)

As for places to play TTAC3 in Toronto is a great place for CQB however most games are held at paintball venues (some may be held at private fields like Bigfoot in Mission, BC)

If you have a girlfriend or wife it might be wise to also invest in a comfortable couch, maybe even one that folds out...

Take a read of
...I wrote it up a little while ago with the "newcomer" in mind.

There's a game this Sat at CQB...PM (personal message) the host and ask if you can drop by. The host might be really busy...running 25-30 guys gets pretty hectic...but there'll be lots of guys to chat with.

Have fun

basic gear needed

paintball googles
tac vest something to hold your magazines pretty much

this is the most basic gear

depending on the look your going for if you wan't a miltia, merc, resitance uniform then regular clothes will work if your going for a millitary look then bdu

some people say bdu's are basic gear my opinion its optional because you don't need it.

oh i'm hosting a game on saturday so if you wan't come by and talk to some of the guys it's at cqb paintball

tyson beat me to mentioning my own game .
