The Time is Near ….. PSP World Cup

The time is near for PSP World Cup at Fantasy of Flight in Polk City, Florida. This time next week I’ll be swarming the vendors to see what free giveaways they have as well as getting to put my hands all over the latest merchandise in the world of paintball. I’ll also get to sit back and watch some of what I predict to be the best matches of the year. While I’m most excited to watch the Pro games I also have a few friends playing in some of the other divisions and I’ll get to watch as well.

I’m most excited about seeing what new products all the paintball vendors are bringing to the table. From what I’ve seen so far I wish I had won the lottery because I’ve seen quite a few new products I’d like to add to my gear bag. While I’m not quite sure where my first stop will be, I plan on at least hitting Dye, Empire, Ninja Paintball, Virtue, Valken as well as GI Sports to check out a few things on my “Christmas Wish list”. What… I’ve been good this year (for the most part).

I’ll also be dropping by Social Paintball to check out some new products as well. If all goes well I may even end up walking away with a new pair of “Grit” paintball pants. From what I’ve seen online I like them so far but I’m much more of a visual person so we shall see. Their booth is all packed with a lot of merchandise and I’ve never gotten out of there without finding something that I’ve been wanting.

Next on my list is a trip to see the guys from Trade My Gun. I met the guys a few years back and I’ve got to tell you they are definitely on my must see agenda. Every year I’ve gone to PSP World Cup I’ve always managed to work out a deal on some gun that I’ve always wanted as well as sell off a few that I rarely use. They guys are always funny and if you catch them at the right time make some really killer deals that you’d never believe.

One of my usual stops is at the Valken tent. I’m usually there to see Kelly and the gang plus check out any new gear as I look for that awesome deal I just can’t pass up. Ninja Paintball is also a must stop so I can check out the 2013 Breast Cancer Awareness tank which I may have to actually purchase this year. I’ve looked them in the years past and always seem to want one.

While I’ll obviously be rooting for Tampa Bay Damage to win I’d like to take this opportunity to wish all the teams that have traveled from both near and far safe travels and the best of luck. Just the fact that you’re there to be a part of one of the biggest events in paintball should be a victory in itself. The win wouldn’t hurt that much either, but making new friends from all over the world. For those who can’t make it you can always follow my Twitter, Facebook, or even Instagram which I’ll include links to below. I’ll try to send out updates and new product pictures all day long, plus any other interesting things that I see happen at PSP World Cup.

Paintball Sunday

Well the weekend is officially here and it’s time to do what I love to do and that would be play paintball. The place will be Gator paintball in Hudson, our home field and the group should be about 10 or so. The team has hit about 20 players but some won’t be able to make it. As always fun will be had by all…… even those who aren’t part of the team love it and always have a blast. I’m super excited because I’ll get to use my new paintball gun for the first time. It’s a limited edition Dye Black/Gold NT 11 that I was able to get thru a friend. I’ve been searching for one for about a year or so and became aware of its presence around World Cup 2012. I’ve been saving ever since and luckily my friend still had it when I finally got the money so I feel like it was meant to be. For those who don’t know much about paintball guns I guess an easy way to compare it for women to understand would be comparing it to a limited edition Coach purse.

What do you love to do with your Sundays? Who do you generally share this time with?

Where to begin?

As  PSP World Cup 2012 grows closer I have many questions. One of which is where do I begin? With so much to see and only a few days to do it I feel as if I should devise a plan. On the list of must-sees this year the new Dye DAM (Dye Assault Matrix). I have to say I’m pretty impressed from what I’ve read so far. If I get my hands on one of these bad boys to look at I’ll be sure to post pictures.

Empire, Valken, Virtue Paintball, and Ninja Paintball are all booths I plan to hit up as well. At Ninja Paintball I’m looking for my limited Edition Pink tank (to support breast cancer). I definitely need to keep my eyes on the schedule because at random times they’ll have team signings. I also need to remember I’m there to watch Tampa Bay Damage do their thing (and hopefully win it all).
