I always wondered if you could shoot a marble out of a paintball gun. I found one on the ground and when I put it in my paintball gun it was to small for the barrel so I found a way to make it fit snugly and it tore through a full soda can like I expected it to do. I lost the marble so I wasn’t able to put it on a caliper to see how big it was.

Does anyone know if marbles are .50 caliber? I wouldn't think people shooting marbles at a field would be a problem but some punks doing paintball drive bys might think it's a great idea. If marbles do fit in a .50 cal marker then this could be a a serious problem for paintball image.

Even if it doesn't work, you can still put other lethal projectiles into a paintball marker. Read under paintball news, a kid actually died from getting shot with a screwdriver. Marbles come in several sizes, it might work. I'm not willing to scratch my barrel to find out though.

All you need someone to do is see how tight of a fit a marble is in a .50 cal barrel. I dont need you to shoot the marbel from a .50 call marker.

They make some 50 cal marbles/ball berrings for blow guns. My biggest concern would be these[/img]

I live in california and blow guns are illegal here so those wouldnt be much of a problem. I dont see them as a problem from vandles either. Someone who is going to shoot up a nehiborhood is to lazy to load one shot at a time but a hopper full of marbles is much easier.

well, if you think about it, a marble is alot heavier then a paintball. and since its heavier, it requires more force to get a decent velocity. and if the marble is say, 55 caliber, and you put it in a .68 cal marker it wouldnt get much pressure built up behind it, causing it to just kind of roll out or go only a few feet or maybe 20 at most. youd have to REALLY crank the velocity to get it up to serious injury cuasing speeds.
