01 November 2008 - 11:33 AMvery well said. how many times have all of us heard or been involved in those stupid arguments that keep you heated for a whole day and make you think of petty crap instead of the game at hand.
01 November 2008 - 11:21 AMYeah, I would have gone for the male stab too, I like the look better. I just deal with PPS directly.
I will probably not buy many things from SO, since they only make a few things themselves that I have any interest in, they mostly resell.
I dont really care about looks I wanted a system that I can move to any place I want to in the future. I did go through palmer only and they were pretty cool, only 1 day to get my kit, but they forgot a piece which I should get today.
25 October 2008 - 08:28 PMAgain, wrong. Both Tippmanns and electros need to be oiled after each day of play. However, you should NEVER have to completely disassemble a high-end-under normal use, you'll never mess it up that bad.
Yes, if you leave an electro and a Tippmann in a box with no oil, the Tippmann will shoot when you gas it up and the electro will probably not. However, anybody who doesn't want to flush money down the toilet can take a minute per day of play to oil their gun.
Again, with both my A-5 and my 'Cocker, I broke them down after each day of play. Breaking down the 'Cocker consisted of taking out the battery to charge it, wiping the paint out and oiling the bolt. The Tippmann needed batteries charged, complete breakdown, oiling a lot more moving parts, cleaning the paint out, and re-assembling the whole thing. The 'Cocker takes 2 minutes, the A-5 was a half-hour ordeal.
I dont think your 100% right on this. I have 2 98's and an a-5 and I have found that both guns can get adequate oil coverage just by squirting oil in the asa. I used the smarts parts oil, the blue stuff and it made it pretty aparent when i opened my gun up that oiling that way covered everything I was going to oil anyway. it even oils the inside of air lines and hardware and prevents o-ring deformation. when I had my ANS that was something i would make sure to completely oil but for tippmanns I have never had any issues with oiling a gun that way.
25 October 2008 - 07:58 PMWhy would you ever want to change modes on the field??? That is horribly illegal. You are asking people to cheat. Just begging them by doing this. Poor poor move on Tippmann's part. Poor move. I know they want to make it tactical for the milsim foillowing, but having changeable firing modes with the flick of the switch is just stupid.
This is primarily marketed to the woodsball crowd who don't have these ridiculous issues of full auto or not. The paintball industry already faces these issues with all the e-triggers with ramp in rebound modes they might as well have a selector switch as well. As far as fields go, the refs can spot a cheater and they will be dealt with. Anybody who owns a full auto marker should have the capacity for some self restraint as we arent some ridiculous adrenaline fueled adventure junkies who pray on the weak.
24 October 2008 - 11:33 AMI play in santa cruz. I have a group of guys that get together about once a month for a woodsball game. small backyard field, full of redwood trees and its typical terrain, hilly and full of sticks. the players range from the hardcore to any noobs people feel like inviting. most are self equipped and we ussually try to get about 5 hours of play in and afterwards have a fat bbq.
This is for chill players only, if you get bunkered and start making a fuss about the surrender rule, or are generally female dogy then we dont need you.
pm me if your interested and I'll let you know when we have a game coming.
