how about a flashlight you can mount under your barrel that turns on for a fraction of a second every time you fire your marker? i think it would be a cool thing to have for night games, not really a functional upgrade, but it might be something someone in the hardcore-scenario group would like to have

So you look like a strobe light? Or see the back of the paintball for a split second?

If you realy want something to light up when firing then it's UV paintballs you want.

For a flashlight why not a tactical light with a remote trigger grip switch?

Paintball Strobe Light FTW!!!‼¡!¿‼!!11!111ONE1ONE!ONE1! (ect., ect., ect.)

That would kinda give away your position though. But if you are a heavy gunner, It would be a solid light lol.

you could probably make one if you had a basic background in electronics. Just connect an extra circuit up to the trigger, Of course it would have to be a electronic trigger, or maybe something like the sound activated hoppers just with lights.

Not quite sure how practical a flashlight that turns on just after you pull the trigger would be. If your target is not exactly where you thought it was then all you get to see is the paintball is headed away from your target and quite possibly give them a better lock on you. Maybe a remote switch to turn the flashlight on before you fire so you can get better aim on your target.

People really into night play do away with lights and save up for this:

Strobe lights work great during night play in enclosed spaces like buildings. As you enter a pitch black room and turn the strobe on, it disorients those in the room and gives you an split second opportunity to get a shot off.

Maybe he was going for the "muzzle flash" idea.

An easy way to make a shot activated light is either to hook up a micro Switch to the trigger or where the rubber detent is. The trigger would be easy if you have a E Grip or the like. The Micro Switch Detent would be activated just as the shot is fired though. The Trigger would turn the light on before the ball is fired.

I have never heard of such a light, but if you mount your tac-light near the muzzle of your barrel, the light shining through the bursts of gas will produce a strobing effect. Many tac-lights come with pressure sensitive switches, in addition to on and off switches, that you can actuate in a strobing effect. Remember, you want your tac-light to reveal your target and hold them, but in doing so, you reveal your position...you may not want to do that with every round you fire.

Strobing is an effective technique to disorient the opposition, just remember you will need to protect your eyes from white-spot blindness...red filters eliminate white-spot blindness.

Usually the rule of thumb is not to loose your night vision. A strobe will definitely do this.

Modify this:

Adjustable sound activated

onto your flashlight, turn the sensitivity down, and shoot away.
