13 February 2013 - 12:44 AMMcarterbrown might be your best bet if you're looking for information on lever action markers. There's all sorts of Sheridan/Nelson based builds, and then some wacky ones like a levered Sniper or a K-Framed marker w/ a lever.
28 January 2013 - 10:50 PMJust to reiterate what was said, start going down to fields when they have practice days or walk-on airball days. From my experience, there are quite a few good teams in the Austin area to work with. Most teams from my experience will look into picking up new talent if they're committed to coming to practices and helping around even when not directly asked to. If they see promise, they may outright pick you up, but in many cases it might take some time to get noticed. Stay committed, and you'll find a team in no time.
23 January 2013 - 10:56 PMWhile I wasn't around during the actual time of brass markers, I've owned a few fairly nice ones. I have a nice KP2 with some custom brass sleeving work from a member on MCB named Walz. Waiting on a pirated and darker stained stock to replace the sort of beat up full sized stock on it. I also have a completely custom rebarreled PGP that was nickel plated by another MCB user. I absolutely love the old brass Sheridan's, and they provide a truly unique style of play.
The closet stories I have from that style of play are from the Texas Pump and Pistol game a bunch of MCB'ers put on bi-yearly. There's lots of custom and aged brass, all manner of Nelson's, and everything else under the sun to make old school players drool. We always try to pick large fields that have mostly wooded terrain to give the true stalker feel that paintball originally provided as well. It is among some of the most fun I have in the sport.
16 January 2013 - 11:20 PMI've spent the past six years playing at first SC, then for the past two OC. I would usually use a pod a day playing SC, and with a nicer CCM like the T2 I currently use, I'm more inclined to say around 1/3-1/2 a case for a full day. The reason I first picked up pump was for the challenge, and it became the addicting thing that has kept a pump in my hand over any semi I have owned (Ego's, DM's, etc). I will say that whatever money I save on paint gets put into projects nowadays though. Having custom brass work done is becoming a real problem lately.
