Paintball, anybody?

12 posts in this topic

Hey guys! I was just wondering, as the title implies, if anyone here plays or likes watching the amazing sport of paintball? I myself have been playing on and off for about 2 years, and I'm loving every minute of it. I am playing at Extreme Kombat in Raleigh, NC on Saturday, and I was wondering if anyone had any experiences theyd like to share, descriptions of guns, etc. Id be more than happy to share mine if anyone wants to discuss. Cheers!

how cheap is a decent tourney level gun(for speedball). I haven't balled for about 10 years now, and I remember that right around the time I left, smartparts Ions had jus debuted.

Also, what's your setup?

I have played it a few times with mates, hiring guns and equipment there. I have never played it seriously. But I do enjoy it a lot when I do play.

I suggest you dress in layers, so you don't paint raped, other than that just practice at your closest paintball arena. Good Luck

I usually wear a light sweater and track-pants, clothes that easy to maneuver while providing a layer to provide some sort of protection. I haven't played it seriously, usually just with a group of friends.

It's been a while since I've played. I used to do tournaments back in what I consider, "the day." We were an average 7-man. Not excellent, not terrible, but we were respected. I plan on getting back into it again, though I won't be going in with an Ego this time around. I have to start over... I'm thinking Etek and go on from there. Being from San Diego, you know who I go for. I used to be kinda close to a few of the Dynasty players. Not anymore though, the ones I knew aren't on the team anymore.

A decent and inexpensive option would be either the Dangerous Power G4 or Invert Mini, based on personal preference. Combine either of those with a decent air tank, either 3000 or 4500 psi and an Invert Halo Too loader, and you are good to go. My set up is pretty average right now. I have a 98C with a stock and a cyclone feed system. I also have a 22 inch barrel that I regret buying. Totally not worth it, and it has the turning radius of an 18 wheeler.

Holy crap? Why would you ever need a 22 inch barrel? Unless you're a huge scenario player, and you need some extra range... But still, gyad, dayum.

Anyone getting into the sport, go with the DM12. Such a cheap marker.

every year for my cousins birthday we go paint balling, I usually ending up shooting my teammate in the back of the neck. But I plan on saving some money and buying a Barret 50 cal sniper and camp in the back.
