03 January 2009 - 01:31 PMI am having a problem that I hope the good people at SO will be able to solve. I have a modded out A-5, trouble is the hieght with the sight, sight rail and MP5 mag kit is too tall for most rifle cases. The total hieght is almot 15". I would love to see a rectangular rifle case with molle attachment points, shoulder strap desgned specifically for mil-sim markers.
06 May 2008 - 08:40 AMI have worked out a design for an interchangeable molle vest and chest rig. The front panel or panels disconnect from the shoulder straps or yoke (both can be used). The design incorporates a 3 liter hydration bladder aka a camelback. The carrier has a molle panel to attach your tank pouch. The font panels are made out of mesh to help with airflow. I have a prototype and have used it, aside from not wearing webgear for six months it was very comfortable. This system has been designed for players that want to move quickly, carry a decent amount of paint, 400 to 600 rounds and it is still easy to get on and off quickly, even the chest rig. All of the buckles and attachment points are easy to get at as the straps pull toward the front and not the rear. Right now conversation from vest to chest rig takes about 5 to 10 minutes. Used either way it leaves a large amount of the torso open, which helps with temprature control. The shoulder straps are padded. I have found with other vests that the shoulders take a beating when loaded down.
22 August 2007 - 09:24 AMI am considering opening a small, well run, well stocked paintball shop in the Milwaukee metro area. I get tired of ordering everything over the computer and having to wait to get the gear. The bulk of the items I am considering are Mil-sim and woodsball equipment, camo etc. I know the Wargame room exists, and so do Casanova's but I am looking to strictly paintball, and it would be run by a player for players. My concern is that it might not be economically possible to support me. Please let me know your thoughts.
I am updating this. The brands I am considering are Proto, JT, and Vforce for goggles along with their replacement lenses, Tippman, tiberius and Ion for markers, molle vests, Rothco and Propper for camo Altima Magnum and Rocky for boots, various brands and grades of paint. Also I plan to have various types of international camo, some from Africa (can anyone say mercenary?) British, Tiger stripes, possibly Russian and Cuban.
With the molle gear, I plan on having camelback/hydrostorm bladders in popular sizes and camo patterns tank pouches, pod pouches and properly sized radio pouches for FRS radios. I plan on having different types of vests and chest rigs.
As for upgrades, oh yeah, different barrels, stocks sight mounts, expansion chambers, boards for the Ions, egrips for the tippmans, extra mags for tiberius. Basically all the good stuff to make your marker truly yours. Mag kits and rails. Remotes, and all the replacement parts to keep a marker working properly. Upgrades for the internals. All the stuff that you can find online, but instead of looking at picture you get to see and touch the gear that you want.
For pods mostly black pods from smartparts or 32 degrees, capacities in 50 100 and 140 rd sizes. I do also plan to have some pod/tank packs, though for the most part I plan on Milsim gear. Gear bags from triplegear (they make some nice black and woodland duffles in various sizes.) I also plan on carrying opsgear stuff too. I also plan to carrying some viewloader pouches since those are excellent for guys who are just getting into the sport.
The difference in the shop that I envision is that I will take trades for consignment or credit toward new equipment. I plan on having a chrono onsite so that every marker I sell or take in can be tested to make sure it is ready to go. I will also have different goggles that can tried on to see which is the most comfortable for the indivual player.
To help parents feel that their child is not going to wind up dead or permenantly disfugered, classes/brochures on paintball safety and basic instruction in how their child's marker has to be taken care of.
I am looking for feedback from players to see if there is demand out there for a shop like this.
