02 May 2008 - 01:10 PMThanks to a great deal from Sheriff Matt I aquired a DT. After some air modifications and a homemade tripod. She now takes either a HPA tank or 3 1/2lb CO2 tank right between the markers facing forward. I also have some new hoppers on her. Future plans include a single palmers stabalizer above the ASA, twin 14" JJ with APex's and some TechT cyclone upgrades.
18 April 2008 - 08:43 AMAfter reading a few "I am leaving paintball because its going downhill and all the players cheat, its too expensive, yada yada. I though just maybe we could use a thread that focused on the positive.
I started playing paintball in the fall of 2002. Just me and few college buddies with some Black Maxx's out on the farm. I now play about every other weekend with 8-13 men and boys at a farm out of the town I live in now. I have seen nothing but improvement in the players equipment, attitudes, and general sportsmanship. It may help that I am one of the older players and since I got many of the kids into the sport I was able to mold their attitudes and how they play.
By promoting good sportsmanship we are getting more players every time. I try to portray it as a great family sport and one of the few sports you are congratulated for shooting your kids "big hit with the fathers". This year I will be attending my first large scenario (D-Day) and am looking forward to it. But at least I know if some of the horror stories are true about all the negatives I have a great positive paintball experience waiting for me back home.
I guess what I am saying is that if your frustrated with where paintball is headed. Step back and play with good friends a few times and rediscover what attracted you to paintball in the first place. Trust me it will be there.
If anybody else wants to post a positive experience in paintball please do so. Thats what this thread is for.
thanks for listening,
11 April 2008 - 10:39 AMI know I have had a few air questions. This is just an idea I had running through my noggin. A 20oz CO2 tank will get you roughly 1000 shots. That is more than my twin hoppers can hold anyway. The issue is velocity and getting liquid in the gun and ruining your O-Rings. From what I see a palmers reg seems to solve these problems to an extent.
My question is since I have both lines plumbed to a single ASA. Could I run one palmers regulator from that to a remote to a 20oz on my back? Would that reg slow down the amount of air getting to the guns and cause air starvation or does the reg feed enough for something like that.
My main reason for this avenue is that the nearest HPA supply is 80 miles away and the nearest CO2 refill is one block away at the hardware store.
Let me know if anyone has done this and if so which Palmers Reg do you use.
