marker upgrade [Aug. 20th, 2007|04:28 pm]
Recreational and Scenario Paintball

[Current Location |work... thinking about the woods]

i would like to get a more accurate and reliable marker. right now, i have a viewloader triton II that i bought in a cheap kit at wal-mart, and sprayed camo. (actually, looking at viewloader's website, my gun looks more like the vl crusader because it doesn't have a foregrip.) the gun is ok, but i go through a lot of o-rings, it's not that accurate with the stock barrel, and i get "air-fart" misfires about every 20 balls. i've enjoyed paintball so far and have been getting out once a month to play woodsball with about 20 other people.

i live in northeastern pennsylvania, so the woods can get rather thick in the spring and summer. i'd like something with good accuracy and distance. most of the other guys and girls that i play with are weekend warriors like myself and only a handful have gone automatic.

any recommendations?

(in a prior post, i asked about goggles. i went with the v-force profilers and they are friggin' great!)

I am relatively new to paintball. I've played wood-ball a couple of times so far and really enjoy it. Last time out, it was hot and I had a terrible time with my (cheap jt) goggles fogging up. I had to take my eyeglasses off, I sprayed the goggles down numerous times with anti-fog (which i had done before i played), and I still found myself pulling my mask up during play to wipe the inside of my lenses. I am looking for a new, better set of goggles that could be worn with my glasses that won't fog up as easily. Can you recommend any? Are the fans really worth it? Thanks.

A new beginning [Jan. 2nd, 2006|09:12 pm]
Recreational and Scenario Paintball

Played a bit of ball today in what seems like a rather long time. I started with my ninja agg Lasoya (These terms, are we done with them yet?), and although I could not let it rip, I think it needs to be lubed is all, it shot beautifully. It's for sale if anyone is interested. Then, I went to AF, Angel of Wrath, my FSPed Viking, many thanks to Jared of DC for such an awesome job, and it shot so nicely. Tadao has got to be the best board out there. Then I ended with my 05 framed white Ironman Intimidator. That is what dreams are made of. There is a reason that is my baby. A beautiful beginning of the year for paintball for me. Now if I can just play more ball in 2006..........

Paintball Podcasts [Dec. 6th, 2005|07:16 pm]

[music |Dead Milkmen]

I recently was given a video iPod asa gift, and as I was converting some videos and downloading podcasts I became curious. Why aren't there any paintball podcasts? I was told over at the 'Nation that E-Money's was on iTunes, but after days of looking I am seeing it. Every shlomo-joe seems to have a podcast out there. Wouldn't it seem logical that the MP3's we already have for FBRadio, E-Money, and WebDog could easily be changed? Am I out of line in this thinking?

From a defferent perspective, couldn't htis be a great resource for the rec-ball community? Interviews with Tippmann, Spec Ops, PCS, EMR, SC Village, etc could be quite interesting. Especially to the rec player. I don't know. I can have the likes of SoccerGirl (interesting, I guess) and Distorted View (love it), but no E-money, Tyger, or Furby. That's too bad.

Milled within a millimeter of it's life...... [Jul. 26th, 2005|05:27 pm]
Recreational and Scenario Paintball

Well, today, my Viking that I just got about a month and a half or so ago, got stripped and shipped to DC to get the FSP milling. I have before pictures, you will just have to wait for the after stuff. Oh, and the anno that it will have is something that Warhammer players will be able to identify with: Soul Drinker.

I will show you pics of it when I get it back.

Has anyone seen a Piranha E-Force EXT 2K4 in action? I have been looking to buy one, but I have not heard anyone really go into detail on how they thought it performs in the field. I have read reviews on websites about them and for the most part, they are great guns. Let me know please.
