02 July 2010 - 07:32 PMJust registered.
This will be the first time for me.
18 March 2008 - 01:21 PMI have one gun, and one gun only.
That's all I want or need.
I picked up a Tiberius T9 last month, after my A5 was stolen in our move.
I don't really lust for other guns, and I have the gear I need.
So, for me, I just have the expense of buying balls. And because
I've gone from a full-auto 15bps A5, to a semi-auto, I'm using way less paint.
And I'm actually enjoying the game more. I spend more time getting into good positons, and trying to
get good shots, as opposed to just shooting paint. I'll also lay down cover fire for my team, so we can advance.
All I really want now is to have Tiberius come out with a low profiel hopper that attaches directly to the gun, and to shorten
my remote hose.
18 March 2008 - 12:43 AMRealism means nothing to me.
I do not go for markers set up for "realistic appearances" and find most of the realistic applications (i.e. the mag system of the Tac 8), to be fairly useless. If I want to shoot something "realistic", I'll head out to the local range and shoot a real pistol.
Many paintball pistols feature removable magazines, such as the G series, Core ZX, WSP, Ariakon Overload, etc. and still offer many of same features of the Tac 8. Plus, they are easier to take apart and maintain and are a lot cheaper as well.
For the set up you have listed (T9, hopper adapter, and remote), you've easily bought an upgraded Ion, upgraded A5, an X7, etc. and be able to shoot a lot of paint. As a matter of fact, I found a similar Zeus G2+ set up locally for $150 that even included a stock and the barrel extension!
I have owned several pistols in the past, and I am actually looking at getting another one, so save your pistol explinations to me.
Well, realism may mean nothing to you, but for some people it does.
That's why you see people with tricked out A5's, X7's etc.
To be honest, it means nothing for me either. Which is why I have the T9 with a remote and a hopper.
I played once with the stock and shroud, and dumped them, because I don't want the extra weight.
I don't want a gun that uses batteries, and I'm over the full-auto thing.
I've had a fully tricked out A5, Ape Trigger etc. (that got stolen).
I prefer the T9.
But that's just me.
17 March 2008 - 06:15 PMWell, I got this one:
I love it. I adapted it to be a waist holster, by getting a heavy duty belt at the Army Surplus store for $15,-. Also, as it turns out, made by Condor. (Opsgear sells it for $25,-. I got mine for $15,-)AndI just use the one bottom strap, that straps to my leg
It's rocksolid. If you're using a hopper, you'll have to cut a tiny corner off.
You can see it in this pic:
17 March 2008 - 06:11 PMI love my T9.
Was an A5 user, untill it was stolen.
I like not having to air-up after every game.
And it's way more accurate as well.
