    Default paintball gun

    hello this is my first post and i was wondering if anyone paintballed in the semi-pro category that had there own gun because i was thinking about making a aluminum drop forward for my co2 tank because of the prices of storebought ones and wasnt shure what to use or if it would way to much. thanks

    Go for it!! If you can fabricate it and make it work you'll be the envy of the paintball field!! Let us know how it turns out!!

    Cool......

    Got a old Marine Corps buddy in Iraq working for Haliburton who travels on those truck convoys alot. The Army has a big problem with kids throwing rocks at the trucks and busting out the windshields & side windows. So,,,, they now issue paint ball guns to the drivers so they can pop them with as they go by.

    My buddy has a ton of fun doing it too.

    If you add the truck's 50 mph to the muzzel velocity of the paint ball-- it hurts!! when ya get hit.
    He's also found that if you keep your paint ball ammo in a ice chest; rather than just 'splatting' on a person,,, the paint ball actually takes them off their feet before it bursts.

    I doubt we'll see either of their likes again".

    it would seem you would need a job to be able to buy all the stuff yoiu need to play 3 days a week.
    the welding gig will do you more good in the long run. kinda hard to take a date out on a box of paint *****.
