Topics I've Started
18 December 2008 - 05:22 PMHello to all Middle Tennessee paintballers. I'm looking to start a team with fellow woodsballers.
I was on Phoenix Company, but the team is sort of split now (still unofficial).
I can make it to fields in the Smyrna/Lavergne area. My home field I play at is in LaVergne near the Hurricane Creak boat ramp, which is where Phoenix Co. has hosted its games.
Before I say more let me give you some info real fast:
Yes, I'm fourteen, but I'm not immature. I also have tactical experience from Phoenix Co, and the CAG training course, and on one occasion with Phoenix we had a ex special forces man train us...It was a pretty good experience too.
So if you are looking for 18+ players dont bother with me...
Also I'm pretty dedicated, I showed up to every game/date with phoenix co, as long as I wasn't out of town.
Also have about 2 years of paintball experience.
So if you are looking for a serious player for a serious team (I dont want any bullsh*t where members dont show up or aren't dedicated) let me know.
Also, I'm looking for a team with a decent amount of players (no teams with 3 people, etc.).
Ill check this thread every now and then, hit me up on here and i can PM you my info, etc.
20 May 2008 - 10:50 PMOkay well here are my opinions on paint:
Diablo Formula 13:
-Okay well currently I still have half a case sitting in my room that I'm still using. The case is about 3-4 months old, and the balls are still in perfect condition. I am amazed by how solid and strong they are. Not a single squishy one in the whole batch. It is affordable paint at the average price of $40 a case (2,000 ct.) I would compare these to be a little bit less effective than marballizers, as they occasionally break on bushes. They are pretty slick.
-Okay, WalMart paint, woohoo! Before turning this down, it is about 36 dollars for a 2000 ct case, and despite being WalMart paint, these exceed my expectations. Comes usually with a yellow/red shell and a BRIGHT neon pink fill. Very easy to see. Break easily on hit, but not so much in barrel. You would buy these for the convenience of getting them from WalMart. These are decent paintballs, but if you can buy something a bit better please do.
-See Diablo Formula 13, because I can not notice a quality difference between the two.
-No. NO. What are YOU smoking, to think that anything that sells for $30 a case will be decent? These break all the time, they are soft and cheap. Are you crazy? Compare to dog poo.
-Okay, we've all heard of the almighty marballizers. This paint is some of the best you can buy, and at $60 a case it better be top notch! These go STRAIGHT through bushes, and find your target with ease. High price, but worth it. Thick fill that is very hard to wipe, which means less cheaters. If you can afford these without cutting through your budget, then go for them. These will definitely help you getting people out, they do not break easy.
I recommend these with all my heart.
-Okay so, this is a kind of biased review on my part right here. Me and my team went to Bear-Claw paintball in Shelbyville, TN. The field paint we used was DXS bronze. Supposedly this was top notch paint, but I heard we got a bad shipment, because this poo was probably worse than monster ball paint. If anyone would like to clear this up that has used DXS bronze, let me know what you guys think of it.
-Okay, same price as Formula 13's, at $40 a case, this paint is about the same as Formula 13. If anything its a little bit less quality, from my experience, but is still great paint. I recommend it if you cant buy marballizer and the shop is out of Formula.
I hope this helps a few people that have trouble choosing paint, this should be a bit of a guide to you.
Here is what I would recommend in order:
3. Formula 13 OR Stinger
4. Visible Impact
5. Monster Balls
No room for DXS bronze as my review is biased, I have yet to play with a "good" batch of paint from them.
19 May 2008 - 08:30 PMOkay so I put my MR2 and my Empire B up for consignment today and put out about 150 on this gun. My local shop had run out of the Alpha Black tacticals, which run 130, so I bought the plain Alpha Black for 90 and bought the tactical mod kit separate for 60. All in all I lost 20 dollars but it is not a big deal as the Alpha Black Tactical does not come with a sling, and the mod kit does, where the sling would easily be about 15 dollars. So really its a loss of about 5.
Now, on to the gun!
Wow! This gun is amazing. It weighs 5 pounds on its own, and with everything on, its not that bad with a sling. Just the layout of everything is amazing.
I'm mainly giving a review on the Tactical Version:
-5 point collapsible stock
-Realistic M16 barrel shroud
-11 in. stock barrel, VERY accurate
-Removable magazine, and it opens up to hold your extra O-Rings and Allen keys
-Very intimidating, looks very nice and built well
-Quick remove in parts such as stock and feed, and just 1 screw on the stock and barrel shroud.
-Do not have to take off barrel to squeegee, but thats not a problem because THIS GUN DOES NOT CHOP
-Does not field strip
-Not much upgrades, and all upgrades are m16 upgrades.
-Can weigh pretty heavy with CO2 and Hopper on, i recommend a remote kit.
-Magazine clip is cheap plastic, but sturdy.
-Hard to use site with mask on
-New clip, but not needed.
-Remote kit for tank, to lower weight on gun
-A sling, if you dont have one.
Okay, this gun is AMAZING for the price. It is EXTREMELY accurate, even at complete stock. Me and my friend played musket-ball at a range of 60 yards and fired 20 shots each. I was using the Alpha Black, and he was using a Tippmann. I had CO2 and he had Nitrogen. I hit him 18 out of 20 shots. He hit me 2 out of 20 from that range.
This gun is very realistic. It is by Tippmann but is a U.S. Army Paintball gun. I showed it to my friend in the military, and he thought it was a real M4 before I he saw the CO2 hose. It is very strong and sturdy. The feed piece just slides into place and snaps on, you press a button right before the barrel to release the feed. It comes straight off. The clip holds extra O-Rings and all my allen keys, so I take my needed tools wherever I go.
Once again I will say, this gun is extremely realistic, and extremely accurate.
For all those thinking about getting this gun, I recommend it. I can not explain how accurate it is for being completely stock, and the range on it is amazing. For the price, this is one of the best guns you can get.
Have fun with your ABT, if you buy it. I know I will.
Edit: Oh yeah. I put about 1000 balls through it today. It DOES NOT chop. Not a single chop at all. If you for whatever reason chop, all you do is pull the feed neck off, and run the squeegee through. Takes about 10 seconds in total, and you don't even have to remove the barrel.
19 May 2008 - 08:05 PMMy dream when I get older is to invest in a building with a layout much like a school. The whole building will be a indoor/outdoor event.
With the school layout, it will be all urban environment with a very fun scenario.
I was thinking of a Terrorist/Counter-Terrorist scenario in which CT's have to clear the building as the terrorists are holding a group hostage.
One day this would be what I would want to do if I won the lottery or something crazy like that.
Any of you imagine how fun it would be to be playing paintball in your school and let me know what you all think.
