  1. Looking at what next

    04 December 2008 - 05:48 PM

    Ahoy!

    Sometime hopefully within 1st quarter of 2k9 I'll have my equipment back.

    I had a Spyder VS1 but decided I didn't like it---charging the battery before each game was tedious, and I found that the burstfire mode just wound up making me waste paint. That and I decided I didn't like speedball (which is why I bought it) that much. I have now given it to a good friend.

    This leaves me with my plain jane Tippmann 98 Custom, non-Platinum.

    This is what I am considering buying in the near future:

    A) J&J Edge Starter Kit. Oddly enough buying two backs and one front separately seems to cost more than buying the Starter kit. The kit only comes with a 12" front (I want a 14" as I seem to have gathered that's the optimum length), but oh well.
    :dodgy: Compressed air tank, maybe a 68ci 4500 high pressure, as that seems to be a choice favorite. I should probably inquire in the air tank subforum to make sure I know what I'm doing first, though...My calculations using the calculator in one of the air tank threads tell me I should get approx. 1000 shots off of a tank of that size and make on a 98C, but this sounds a little high. Can anyone confirm?
    C) New mask, probably a JT model, and maybe a spare lense.
    D) A new pod belt, maybe six-pods capacity, depending on how many rounds I get off the N2 tank.
    E) Maybe MAYBE some somewhat better camo from the surplus army army surplus store in town (it's HUGE).

    I've only gotten to play paintball a few times, due a lack of funds, lack of transportation, lack of nearby fields...But now I live in Portland, where public transit can get me to an indoor field and where I now have a job. Now I just need my marker, spare time, increased working hours, and for my pops and I to get freaking settled in (we moved here only 2.5 or so months ago, Gawd I hate having to take care of medical paperwork via phone all on my ownsome).

    As the Tippy has ironsights I don't plan on getting any fancypants stuff like red dot sites or anything like that. No milsim mods, no response triggers (full-auto + me = wasted ammo), nada. When I want something more, I'll probably buy a whole new marker, maybe an Automag if all that I have heard here is true.

    With that much said, what do you think about all this?
  2. Can I get a holla from my new Portland homies?

    EDIT: I just realized that this is precisely what Game Locator is for. Someone please delete this?

  5. Funniest misfire/equipment malfunction

    03 April 2008 - 10:13 AM

    What's the funniest malfunction you've ever had with your gear?

    Here's mine (presented in two parts for easier reading and better context):

    Part A: One day at my local paintball field, I was at the chrono range and when I was removing/reinserting my barrel plug on my Spyder VS1 the park staff member that was with me suggesting putting some lube on the plug's O-rings because they were squeaking a lot.

    Part B: Later that day, my friends and I were about to begin a game. As my team goes over to its starting point, I make the mistake of turning the electronics on my Spyder BEFORE removing the barrel plug (don't freak out, everyone was masked). And so as I'm about to reach for the barrel plug my finger accidentally taps the trigger and a loud THOP noise accompanies pink spoo coming out of the barrel porting. :wacko: :P I have to call timeout, like, 12 times because the field we were on was a REALLY long village and the other team started clear at the opposite end, and the ref was still a huge distance away despite being in the middle. There's an upside to this---after I was finishing squeegeeing, the O-rings on the plug were properly lubed and didn't squeak anymore. :laugh:


    Your turn for funny stories!
