So, today in my math class, the two guys behind me were discussing paintball. Naturally, I joined in, trying to make friends and all that... After listening to them talk for about three seconds, I came to the realization that either a) they have never actually played paintball and are talking out if their asses, or B) they are the most unsafe douches our wonderful sport has ever seen...
When you boast that your tippmann 98 has a 22 inch barrel, operates at 850 psi, and shoots at 500 fps, there is something seriously wrong. I mean really dude? I think everyone knows your 500 yard paintball shot never happened ever. ESPECIALLY on a speed ball field. Yes, yards. Not feet, not inches, yards.
Also the fact that this guy talked about how awesome freezing paintballs is and how great it is that his gun broke someone's lens once, really burns me up.
Does anyone else want to smack this guy? I'm all for stretching the truth a bit, but this was just stupid.
Thank you for putting up with my rant to here,,,
Also, this guy isn't a "newbie" or so he claimed. According to him he had sponsorships from EVERY company, but used a spyder pilot because it's the best...
/Rant.

Sadly there are many people out there with the IQ of a retarded goldfish. Killing them doesn't qualify as justifiable homicide.

A shot of super glue on their chair just as they are sitting makes you feel better.

I remember the look of amazement on the summer campers faces when whe showed them that frozen painfballs actually have less power...

I e heard any njmber of awful thing, from the fact that th only protection you need is a pair of shop glasses, that my dm will hurt way more because i must be shootng at least 600fps to get that many shots off in a second, the red dot sight on their stock tippman with crap paint and how they can hit a flys eye with it, (this gun being one that id be luck to hit a hippo with)

No wonder people think our sport is nuts. Half tbe people that "play paintball" are idiots who have never been on a real field

I saw a guy on a field once who apparently had dumped some time and effort into making a 25+" pvc barrel extension thinking it would give him sniper like range and swearing by it.

Hey,dont like it till you try it :) I bought my brother a 20" Smart Parts barrel for his MR1 and that ting can hit flies and is dead quiet. plus with the extra length the C02 has more room to expand and push the paint faster. His marker is tuned all the way down ( lowest spring setting to reduce fps ) and its BARELY legal. if you get some C02 in the lines it tops 300 fps. hes got it on a cord just to keep it around 290.


( being a prick here ).....And I doubt it was PVC...CPVC maybe. I've made myself barrels using 3/4" CPVC before and they work just fine. I've got a 12" CPVC barrel on my A5 that I'm playing around with. They're cheap to make and fun to experiment with.

I assure you, it was pcv, wasn't even straight. He just slipped it over the barrel, I doubt if it even fit the paint loosely...

Apparently he misunderstood the purpose of a barrel "condom"

Well, tippmann's do run at that psi. Some people don't know the sport, might as well let them live in their little world or and maybe try to teach them some actual facts.
I've talked to people who have been playing for years who still don't know the difference of "FPS" and "BPS".

You gotta let it go. They don't know what they're talking about, and they probably don't really play. I remember hearing people talk about this kinda crap in school and I just laughed. If they start to talk about how inaccurate phantoms are compared to their ubertacticaltippmann89dood, just realize they'll be the first one out if they play with you.

Some say paintball is more realistic, but I dont know how they are being serious. Just looking at the paintball guns makes you know they are fake.

I love hearing people talk about paintball when they clearly have no idea what they're talking about.
Like when people say kilts aren't good for paintball, or that Purple isn't good camo.

My job is to be an asshole. I excel at the position.
