I'm working on building my own Hammer, and I'm thinking about trying to rig up a grip/sling that lets me fire from the hip-think Rambo or Heavy Weapons Guy. For sheer cool factor, honestly. I like this setup because it seems like it would be comfy, and I can still move it around just fine. However, I've never shot a Hammer before. Is this a useful stance, or will I always be holding it more like a traditional gun to get decent shots?

Unless you have an e grip in the center that fires both guns, you'll probably want it centered on your chest or stomach. Having it there puts the crank in a comfortable place for you to reach at all times. Most of us(or at least the 8 or 9 that I've met besides me and me) use a harness or else strap it to our vest by the shoulder point alice clips. I personally like the alice clips on a Cops911/SpecOps vest because it takes the stress off of your neck which you can really feel with a regular strap. If you are only going to use it for short periods of time then a harness around your neck is fine, but if you plan on running with it for an hour or more at a time, then a vest with clips is a must. It really eases up the strain on your body. Mine weighs 12 pounds without paint or air in the lower tank, so that alone will take its toll after a day of running. The toll it takes is seriously lessened if I can more evenly distribute the weight on my body. So my advice, try to keep the gun as centered on your torso as possible, or else have a really good chiropractor who will understand your paintball obsession. I do both and it seems to work out for me.

Actually, I'm going to be rigging up both E-Grips to a single joystick trigger located between and behind the guns.

Well then you can easily mount it Rambo M60 style, but its going to be hard on your body after a short period of time.

Yeah, I was going to try and rig up a full harness attached to my vest for it to distribute the weight around (Have attachment points at the shoulders and waist, and try and get it so it'll hang itself to begin with). I was going to run a belt around the bottom of my vest with a carabener attached to the gun, so it can rotate around and I can hold it in front if needed. I doubt I'll be running this thing steady for a long period of time (This is less a new main and more an 'OK, NOW I'm (annoyed), time to bring out the big guns!' kind of weapon).

Well, if you're adding a joystick, maybe this will give you some ideas? The only thing you'd have to overcome is the height of the big hoppers... but if you bolt a bar underneath the front crossbar of the DT frame (assuming you have an equalizer kit, or a custom frame of similar design) which will point forward, then bend up, then bend back either over or just in front of the hoppers, it would probably work. I just hope you have a field owner willing to let you use it!

Will you be using A-5's or some other marker for your project?

I'm looking to build a man-pack version of this:

I'll be stripping it down for weight a little-no tripod, no lights and such. But you get the idea.

look for someone on Damage Inc, they have a similar version of that, but man-portable, theyre on MCB as well i think. (many of their members have KPs and KLs and K somethings)

Yeah, I've seen RoBo's rig, but his uses a Firestorm crank-type setup attached to a little electric motor, which was veto'd by the D-Day staff (I want to be able to use it there). However, it will probably be similar, inasmuch that it'll have a foregrip as well and a rear-mounted trigger for the guns. And Dishkas.

Ive seen and held the "Arm Cannon" that Gunner79 (I think those are the right numbers) built with the 2 a5s with the 1 egriped trigger frame. It is a beast to carry one armed. After using it he complained of Arm troubles for some time.

The guy from Scenario Dreams makes an integrated trigger set-up for these. It was posted on PBN in the custom markers section.

For the record Damage Inc does NOT use any type of crank or motor.

Yeah, don't you guys use respone trigger with very small cables hooked to paddles to fire it.
