If I don't sell it to a guy that I am meeting up this weekend I am probably going to drop the price considerably lower than what its at right now.

How is that wrong? They are guns. Not firearms, but neither is a water gun, or a staple gun. The only really good reason to use "marker" instead of gun is when you are trying to be PC or you want to make people not think paintball guns are like firearms.

which in todays day and age where firearms are being more and more restricted everyday wouldn't you think that is a good idea to get away from them? To not be associated with them? I think so. I don't want my sport banned out of ignorance.

Because if you want to insist upon calling things by the "right" name, then it's a marker, not a gun. Also, you say marker around nervous parents or other adults, no one pays any mind. You say gun anything, and watch the reaction. Is that right or wrong? Who's to say...but the situation is what it is. It pays to know your audience.

Ive seen that on Ebay and Craigslist A LOT! I have only seen it on here a few times but usually on Craislist itll be something like "BRAND NEW EGO 09!!! HAS TO GO!----------$100.00" you open it up out of pure curiosity and its a Tippmann or Spyder. People do that a lot on Craigslist because they want more people to view there post. Ebay.....people are just stupid :laugh:

I hate that on ebay. It's called Keyword Spamming. It used to be easy to report auctions but for some reason, the page for reporting KS is broken. You can only report an auction for violations from their help section. It's very time consuming which is why the the KSers are so prevalent.

I've played with kids who have Egos bought with their parents money for a birthday and they don't know the first thing on how to operate or maintain the gun. It's sad, but it's what happens. I don't necessarily hate the kids that get that kind of stuff, but I do have a problem when they act like they know more than me and act superior simply because they think their gun is the best.
