Default paintballers

Ok yes I know there have been many other threads on this, but some had to go and wreck them if you do it here, I'll report you.

I have just recently gotten back into it. My friends and i have started a woods ball team. I currently use my Tippmann A-5, but I'm buying my friends 2004 WGP autococker(he only wants $100 for a $300 gun). We played today, and I realized why I got out of this in the first place,... its expensive , just today I went through 1500 balls I'll have my new gun probably Wednesday, I'll post pics when I get it.
heres my gun


so anyone else play?

I play, I have a walmart gun that shoots 30bps . J/K man, i do play though, speedball though I'm shooting about 15-18 bps average. So i go through alot of paint. I buy the cheap shait from dunhams though, $20 bucks a case, Quailty doesnt really matter when you playing on a 100'X50' playing field. Here is my gun smart part ion the upgrades are the grips qev the "body" the trigger and clamping feedneck and the drop foward. Oh and i also fill my own compressed air tanks off my scuba tank. LMK what ya think.

i used to paintball... when i quit and sold out i had a 2005 proto matrix, 2005 system-x NME, and a 2003 dye matrix. i was a back player for my team, in one tournament i'd go through 2-3 thousand shots... it was very expensive, all of our team wore brand new dye pants and jerseys, profiler masks etc... we played tournament air ball though, no tippmans with bi-pods there.

I used to play. I wouldn't mind getting back in it though, when I have $$$...I used to have a Black Magic Auto Cocker, richochet hopper, 3000 psi tank, dye invision mask, all that. I was really big into that...and my dad had a E Bladed Dye Reflex. Loved the sport, but everyone around me got out of it, and so we did too...:-( I miss it.

Talking .

I used to play alot, (3 man tourny's) just got too expensive!!!! When I finally hung up my stuff, I think I had close to $2200 in gun, tanks, mask, pods, etc, etc, and that didn't include entry fees, paint, or food and gas for every other weekend.

Well i figured I'd bring this thread back up since I just bought a new gun. I used to only like playing woodsball, but after recently playing a speedball match Im now hooked.

Its a Dangerous Power Fusion F8, I think the fact that the guns number is 007 is pretty slick. She shoots like like a champ, super fast(25 bps) and is super light. what do you guys think?
