CAN’T WE THROW MONEY AT IT TO BRING CQB BACK? While money and time could have solved repairs to the field the lease ending was non negotiable. This questions stems from a misunderstand of the differences between the land and field owner. The person who owned the field did not own the land. Unfortunately the land owner had no interest in continuing with CQB once the lease ran out. The field was doomed to close anyway. I WANT TO START PLAYING PAINTBALL, WHERE DO I DO FIRST? Your first step should be to go to a field and rent to see if you actually enjoy it before you invest a lot of money. If you find that you love it and want to get involved the first thing you should buy is a great mask. Don’t skimp out and spend $40 on a mask, get something of exceptional quality, with great ventilation and thermal lenses. This will ensure your mask won’t fog on the field. Mask first, the rest can follow afterwards. HOW DO YOU MOUNT YOUR GOPRO? I use a mount from Unanistan. You can find more info here. WHAT DO YOU THINK OF GUN XYZ OR MASK ABC? I don’t review gear as a general rule, I leave that in the hands of many other YouTube channels. There are a ton of paintball review channels out there, just do a search for the gear your interested on YouTube and you’ll probably find a comprehensive review. ARE YOU LEFT HANDED? I’m right handed, but I shoot ambidextrous. Too Tall is famous for saying that half of all corners are on your left. Learn to shoot off-handed. WHAT GOPRO DO YOU USE? I use a Hero 4 Black and a Hero 3 Black. The settings I record with are 1080p, 60 frames per second and a wide field of view. My gun cam is a ShotTrack HD WHAT SOFTWARE DO YOU USE TO EDIT YOUR VIDEOS? Sony Vegas Pro Edit (Whatever the latest version is). It’s about $400. I also use Adobe After Effects for more complicated things like my Division videos. WILL YOU EVER PLAY AT MY FIELD? I dunno. I tend to just go to bigger events now as I don’t have a ton of time to just play casually anymore (sad-face). If your field is putting something on maybe have the owners talk to me and see if they can help me make the trip. Trips are expensive.
