05 October 2011 - 08:42 AMwhat's a woodsball gun?
30 September 2011 - 01:58 PMi don't usually do paintball videos, or youtube at all, for that matter. To be honest, I don't post here particularly often, either - I play paintball for the fun of it, not to live out some GI Joe fantasy, so I don't really 'do' milsim. With that said, your thread title got my attention and your video gave me a few minutes of entertainment during a slow Friday afternoon at the office.
A couple thoughts, in no particular order:
-a few people are still making scratch-built brass pump markers, including PPS (who also still makes scratch-built brass semi-autos). RTP has also resurfaced, and is working magic with both brass and stainless steel.
-one of the main problems with fixed barrel markers in the modern day is the paint-bore size disparity. Most of these guns were rather large bore, and paint has been trending on the small size lately. thankfully, newer versions of these markers are available in .680".
-your barrel is ported, not rifled. probably just a brain fart.
-Glenn did the first direct-fed pneumatic semi-autos.
-kudos for the lesson in paintball history to what I assume is a generally young fanbase. if we have a care for the future of paintball, we're tasked with showing the game's younger players how to play with honor and integrity, to respect, cherish and embrace the sport's heritage, and especially to recognize the small manufacturers that made this sport great. we're fortunate to have some small shops left, but entirely too few. i strongly believe that these guys, who put so much soul into their products, are the beating heart of paintball. once they're gone, it's just cold, dead, cheap, mass-produced stuff from faceless corporations. play pump, play mech, play for the sake of playing, just play with a marker that was made by somebody who loves the sport as much as you do and you'll have a great time.
that's it for me... 5 o'clock.

24 August 2011 - 06:33 AMvariety keeps paintball alive for me. i have a handful of markers that i love, and i enjoy rotating them. everything gets used once a year or so. right now, i don't have a dedicated workhorse to use regularly... i'm hoping that my mag can fill that void once i get it finished.
24 August 2011 - 06:31 AM^ lul. what's to decide - aren't they all just about exactly the same?
as for me, i've screwed around a time or two with dual pistols. it had its moments, but was generally not worth the hassle. other than that kind of silliness, i'd never consider carrying two markers onto the field. i do generally bring two or more different marker types to the field, however, often swapping halfway through the day. variety is win in my book.
