So in this thread tell of all the noobish things you did when you started playing paintball like calling your marker a gun, or calling paintballs BULLETS.

To start off, when I first got my Axe, I saw paint on my detents and asked people how to clean your eyes out. Yes I thought my detents were my eyes. Another time, I thought that the Tipmman 98 rentals were the best markers out there, until I saw an EGO.

I still call my marker a gun.

The only thing I can remember is the first time I used my Ego I hadn't read the manual or anything, so the bolt pin was halfway in and I though it was broken.

I love you.

I used to think that a 22" barrel was the most accurate piece of shit out there. I also used to think that electronic guns were a big deal, when in reality, they are more common than a mech gun. I also used to think that Tippmanns were awesome, I still think they are pretty good if you don't mind the extra weight but they aren't an awesome tournament gun for most people.

My two sons had started playing paintball and my oldest - he was about 14 and had saved up his money and bought something called a 'Smart Parts Impulse'. (It was the first model). I knew nothing about paintball at the time. The boys talked me into playing. While we were waiting for the game to start, my son said his gun wasn't working right. It would shoot, but the paintball wouldn't come out. We looked it over and had no clue what the problem was. I was afraid to touch the thing.

Then an old grizzled veteran we nicknamed 'Sarge' came over. He looked at it, shot it once. Pulled the bolt out, rotated it 180 degrees, and put it back in. The gun worked just fine after that. That was the day we learned about bolts in paintball guns.

Paintball guns are still guns to me. Markers are for writing.

I remember thinking that a hopper and a pod was enough paint to last for hours. At a 160-player big game.

That time my hopper and tank were off my marker, and I absentmindedly "dry-fired" into my own hand, thereby learning three things: always check your breech, regs can hold pressure after the tank is removed, and tweezers can be handy for pulling paint shell out of your flesh.

when i first bought my etek 3, i had no idea how poppets or speedball guns really worked. So while i was buying it, i took the bolt out and tried to put it back in, it locked in front of the rammer instead of on it. and when i gassed up and pulled the trigger, the rammer was hitting the bolt pin.

Then when i finally figured it out, and i pulled the trigger again, there was a loud pop of a dryfire inside my car (yes, we made the transaction in my car next to a park in the middle of the night).

Still kinda feel stupid about that... Posted Image

I threw a pod to my friend, and lets just say it didn't go as far as I planned, needless to say, I had to take apart his Mini, and his Spyder fasta. It took me 2 hours to clean gear that wasn't mine.

Whilst reffing a game, I told a kid to stop shooting full auto. He had some sort of higher-end gun and shooting crazy fast compared to everyone else. He said that he wasn't and pulled the trigger once and held down to prove he wasn't. He continued to unload in the following games.

I just started playing a few weeks back so it is still fresh in my head.

We play on a scenario field. I'm with my team at the start point. I tell a few of them that I had no clue what to do. Friendly bunch of guys. They say run to that wall and shoot at anyone coming toward you. Sounds simple of enough. I follow directions to the letter. Guy comes toward me I step out and start pulling the trigger as fast as I can. Guy pauses for a second then keeps coming. What the hell where are my "bullets" going! Guy stops about 15 feet away raise his gun and shoots me 1 time and runs past. :mad:

As I walk off the field a referee is waving me over laughing. He tells me "um man, you have to take the barrel cover off for the gun to work!"

When I rented the gun the guy had told me the safety rules. Keep you barrel cover on at all times and mask on at all times while on the field. I guess he assumed that a 38 year old man would know to take the cover off during the game! :blush:

Bad news is I embarrassed the hell out of myself!
Good news is everyone knows I'm the new guy so they are all helping me learn the ropes!

Thinking that barrels made your marker more accurate, my friends still think that, one even said not too long ago because it's rifled it makes it shoot so much straighter because it puts spin on the ball.

Mine was more recent lol.


Living Legends 5, Saturday Afternoon, by the hyperball field.

My EGO 8 was having jamming issues, seemed to be a dirty eye. I strip off the Rotor, pull out the bolt, and swab the chamber and barrel.

I go to put the the bolt back in, forget to secure it, and air up the marker again, pulling the trigger to cycle it. Bolt flys out the back and smacks me in the mask.

Needless to say my friends had many lulz.
