As we find out later he's not even playing in that game and he's just sitting out of bounds being a wiener... :P

Been a while eh guys? I used to keep getting AVAST popups for malware whenever I came here and it blocked the site so I haven't been on in forever.

I always disagreed with the term "sniper" in paintball, as lobbing spherical projectiles sloshing around with liquid inside seemed to be the antithesis of "precision", but that was amazing! The drop at that (what I would assume to be sub-200 ft) distance is very similar to a precision rifle (308 is great but drops like a rock) at around 600 yds. It's almost like those "long" range air rifle vids where the guy's shooting pigeons at 275 ft, and he's got his wind calls and range come-ups all set, just at shorter distances than most.

Fine, he earned the title! :ghillie: :ghillie: :ghillie:

Title 'Sniper"...debatable...action of 'Sniping', dam strait.

One doesn't longball a first strike round...one places the round on an unsuspecting player with great precision and accuracy.

The funny part is that non players worry about getting hurt and the vid shows the truth. The headshots don't hurt but the handshots do. :).

@1:25 I laughed.

Same with me on the forums. I had forgot about it for the most part.

And he may have been being a weiner, but darn that was a great video. Before FS, no paintball snipers. After, possible. Still like the term sharp shooter, but I dont bash over semantics.

I was actually a few yards away from the chrono station within the boundaries so definitely not being a wiener. :)
Since the sniper debate is still smoldering, I was careful not to title the video that way. I am actually pretty excited and relieved I haven't gotten flamed from players who is not familiar with this type of play. Maybe it's a sign that more players are more accepting now than before?


To Lt.Col.Vortex, your mount is way fancier than what I have. The mount I used is actually left over plumbing from my sink... PVC pipe, flex pipe and an electrical box.

Here is the installation video.
