My PMR is laser engraved on the top of the UL frame, pretty much not noticeable unless you're unscrewing it from the marker! :(

My locklids has punisherpb stickers on 'em, one on the bottom of the pod, one on the inside of the lid (notice the trend?)

And my gear bag is locked up with TSA locks from WalMart which was like $5 for a pack of three.

thanks menace, this really helps. you could also run a padlocked cord through your triggerguards if you really really wanted to be safe
probably a dumb idea
oh, joker, you cant really prevent your stuff from being stolen sometimes. "stuff" happens(to keep it pg-13)
my brother got a $500 fixed gear bike stolen in chicago, and it had a $75 dollar kryptonite on it. some meatheads lifted the sign, and took the lock with them

Maybe fields should rent oversized lockers....That would be pretty cool. Have them air conditioned to so you can store paint. :) *Adds a note about air conditioned paintball lockers to dream field*


Well just so you know, We are planning on having a locker room at our field. We will be having a camping area and i know some people would probably feel more comfortable with their stuff locked up inside with their own padlock than in their tent.

Also Just a suggestion, Go to your local gun shop and ask for a bolt lock, they are about 2 feet long and work wonders

maybe take your guns to things remembered and see if they could engrave you call sign name on them, or you initials in a certain spot ont he gun that maybe no one else would look....get some team stickers made up for your pods and slap them on there, maybe a team sticker on your hopper an tank as well....

I've got a gun case, and I spraypainted my old nickname on it. Very few people would actually have a clue where my nickname comes from. (It's not my forum name, either). I've got the Canadian flag on it, and I'm going to spraypaint my blood type on it as well in bright red. (I have it on my backpack for when I travel.) It's extremely useful to carry all of my stuff (And I don't get mistaken for carrying an assault rifle, because of the big letters "Paintball" on the other side of it.)

Not only that, but the case itself is very long (About 36 inches), and thin. It's a pain in the butt to get in your car without anyone noticing, considering it's also spraypainted bright, bright white.

Consider getting a gun case and customizing it. Saves you on travel weight, saves you on organization, and saves your marker.

I do what Pin Drop does. The Stanley Tough Box with a TSA lock. Or if I'm at a new field, the box stays in the van. So far no problems. But I do like the custom paint job idea.

Ok, I have read a few ideas on this forum and I just woke up for work not but 30 mins ago, so now hear this. There is only one thing that will PREVENT marker theft. Everyone here thinks about how to get the stuff back, how to make it unusable or how to catch them with it. The answer is simple and will cut down on clutter considerably. Purchase two tough-boxes from Lowe's or Home Depot, The boxes come in Small "too small" Medium "Just barely big enough" and Big "Oh yeah big enough" I took my two large Stanley tough boxes, spray painted them to our specialized camouflage color and got simple combo locks for them. First all of my markers and gear are kept in these boxes and the lock is on the box, friends and teammates know the number, Second thing to know is that all of my serial numbers are written down, with receipts of purchase AND all my markers have our "DHL/NLD" lasered onto them "Only $4.00 per marker" Prevention is the key and prevention is the topic, this isn't called "how to recover lost stuff" Keep it locked and keep it organized. I could of course leave my Spyder SE "worth about $550" on the table at the field and know it would always be there when I returned, why? Cause first everyone knows who I am and second...I cover the area around my marker with anti-personnel mines and booby traps that I bought second hand off of Puzuma :D


Last time I went to my field there was a group of 5 or 6 seasoned looking players using Tough Boxes (or something similar) like PinDrop said. They put a simple padlock on it and left. The thing was too big for anyone to try and lug over to the parking area, and it was secure enough that no one (or at least no one smart) would try and break into it. It seemed to have worked pretty good.

Also, you can fix the people stealing your paint problem even easier. Take your (I'm assuming) good paint, and stick it in a Monster Balls box. :)

Or do one better. Stick it in a Folgers plastic coffee can. You get an excellent pod loader and paint caddy that's airtight (each one easily holds a 500-round bag), as well as the perfect disguise for your paint. After all, a lot of people and teams make coffee.

The only downside to the TSA locks, is that they are universal. Thats why they are preferred at the airport. One key works for all. (Unless its some kind of special master key but I don't believe it). I've boughten a seperate pack and the keys from the 2nd pack worked fine with the locks from the first pack.(again, not sure if it will work with all, but just a warning in case.)

So be extremely cautious about using that system.
